Social generosity

The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed. Prov. 11:25

In of our earliest lessons in generosity we learn to say “you come, too,”  “you go first,” or “share mine.” Including and sharing are acts of social generosity. Generosity can be five minutes of uninterrupted listening. Generosity can mean sharing credit or letting someone into your traffic lane. The generous invite and show up even when it might be boring or awkward. People who are socially generous communicate to others that they are valuable.

Lord, help me to be generous in every aspect of my life.
