“No person was ever honored for what he received. He was honored for what he gave.” – Calvin Coolidge
“The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.” – Albert Einstein
Being generous can be difficult at times, at least it is for me. On one hand I want to make sure that I am providing for my family and they have everything they need, on the other hand I want to give back what the Lord has blessed me with and have faith that God will provide. Regardless, I believe it is very important for my daughter to witness my wife and I being generous, not only in tangible ways but also with the intangible (mostly in the form of donating time). After all, being generous is an action; sitting around just talking about it doesn’t do much.
I write about the rather unexpected journey of fatherhood, please join me!
