I think of LIFE as a participatory sport; we are not called to be mere observers. That is why I am not a fan of Reality TV because they take it to the level of voyeurism. That all being said, I still like to watch people in real life and see how they problem solve because I can learn lessons from others and not have to particularly go down their same path. One of the paths I have chosen to go down is the generous path. I want to be a good stewart with all that God has gifted me with and share with others out of this enormous bounty. I desire to be generous with my love, praise, gratitude, smiles, friendliness, hospitality, comfort, compassion, funny stories, presents, money and time. Did you know there is even scripture from Proverbs that declares the benefits of being generous? In Proverbs 11:25 it states, "The generous will prosper; those who refresh others shall themselves be refreshed..." How about that?
