One of the most important things I've learned as I've journeyed through life and towards my dreams is that of GENEROSITY. I don't mean GENEROSITY in terms of just finances, but in any and everything we can offer to help our "brother or sister" along the road they're travelling. We can't be so consumed with our own lives and what we want that we forget about everybody else. We need to be focused - yes, but not so much so that we tune out those around us and their needs.
I always think of this Scripture, "The generous soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself" (Proverbs 11:25). That means, when we share our lives with others - our time, talents, resources, and anything else we have as we are able, others will share their lives with us too. It's how God desires we care for one another. It's His economy.
Simply put, generosity prospers a person (in love, friendship, care, and so much more) while stinginess impoverishes (by not allowing the love, friendship, care, etc. to flow back towards us).
God loves it when we're GENEROUS with one another! So, let's be GENEROUS to the utmost of our abilities!
