Tip #15: Demonstrate Generosity

Being generous does not only mean giving money away. Generosity is the characteristic of giving in general. The Bible tells us that if we have two shirts and see someone in need that we are to give one away (Luke 3:11); if our neighbor comes knocking at our door in the middle of the night seeking bread, that we are to get up and give it to him (Luke 11:5); and that we are not to hesitate in doing good when it is within our ability to do so (Proverbs 3:27). 335 more words
