Thoughts on Generosity

Generosity comes in many forms: big or small; loud or quiet; complex or simple; public or private. It reflects the decision to be a committed and involved participant rather than a distant and disengaged observer. It means getting in the game rather than sitting in the stands. It is asking with meaning: “What can I do for you?” or “How can I help you?” It is saying: “I will give with abundance and authenticity.”

Generosity is being a simply thoughtful or thoughtfully simple giver and a delighted and appreciative receiver. Often we are impressed by public displays of generosity in the form of sizable donations. An equally powerful form of generosity is being, doing and giving your best. Some of the most cherished and memorable gifts are made by hand with large doses of love and hard work or are gifts of time, energy and spirit. These types of gifts create wonderful memories and feelings of being loved, valued and remembered.

Generosity affords you the pleasure and privilege of making a difference in the life of a stranger or member of your family or community. Think about ways that you can be generous with the individuals and groups that make up the fabric of your life. Use your gifts to nurture your family and give back to your community. Remember you get what you give, when you learn, you must teach and what you put out there comes right back at you in abundance. It only takes a moment to change a life forever.
