As you can probably imagine, the topic of generosity comes up quite a bit in conversations I have with other people. Many times people are genuinely concerned if they are being generous enough with the blessings they have received. That is good news! It would be even better if everyone thought like that.
The response I usually give them is “just make sure you are trying“. If you are making an honest effort to lead a generous life, the actual generosity itself will eventually manifest itself. It has too! I also tell them not to try and do too much at once, especially if you are new to giving.
Just learn to start small.
Many people, eager to be generous and give the gift that they have received through this program and the other areas of their life try to rush into giving big. This many times leads to frustration and discouragement. It doesn’t have to be like that.
The answer is to start small. Take small little steps everyday. Don’t try to change the world overnight. Give and give generously and as you are blessed with the giving you are doing, you will be able to add to your giving. This leads to you… being more generous!
Remember, especially if you have been leading a selfish life up to this point, your eyes are now open! You will do good and as you are given more, you will change the world, just one small step at a time!
