I am trying to learn how to be more generous. I have been blessed to be surrounded by generous people. My wife is generous. She has blessed me and our family with her servant’s heart. She loves to provide a great home and meals for our family and friends. She is a generous person.
My father-in-law was a generous person. Dad Foti built our first home and put $25.000 of his own money into it. He loved to bring us vegetables and meat from his house. He was always thinking about ways to bless his children.
I have a generous family. I have been blessed by my kids, siblings and parents. Their homes have been open to us. They have cooked us great meals. They have offered words of encouragement and supported us in so many ways.
I have generous friends. They have shared their homes and vacation homes with us. They have shared awesome meals with us. They have been encouraging and supportive. I recently asked for support on a mission that I did to India.. they’re support was amazing! Great friends! Generous friends!
God has been generous with me. He has opened amazing doors and experiences for me. He has given me purpose, direction, forgiveness, peace, love, hope and security. God is so generous!
Generosity is important. Jesus said “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”
Generosity has a way of coming back to you. It can be financial, it can be encouragement. It can be small acts of kindness. Generosity makes our world a better place.
I want to be a generous person.
