Thought for the Day - Generosity

I think that generosity has many levels. We have to think generously, speak generously, and act generously. Thinking well of others is the basis for generous giving. It means that we relate to others as part of our 'gen' or 'kin' and treat them as family. Generosity can not come from guilt or pity. It has to come from hearts that are fearless and free and willing to share abundantly all that is given to us.
