Surprised by Your Own Generosity

She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy. Proverbs 31:20

The Proverbs 31 woman is generous to the poor and is willing to lend a hand whenever. She considers it an honor to help where she can. in short, she’s a giver.

But obviously, generosity isn’t limited to great women. Great men can also give freely and generously. It really is a sign of greatness to give without expecting anything in return, no tax receipt, no quid pro quo, nothing.

Why is that such a great trait?

First, giving is the right thing to do.
Secondly, giving freely reveals a purer motive than when you want something in return.
And lastly, you don’t need the praise and adoration of those who know you did it.

How’s your generosity been lately? Perhaps a better question is, “Have you surprised yourself by your generosity lately?”
