Generosity in quotes

“What began as well-meaning boundaries has become stinginess. ‘No’s’ were useful in helping me focus on what’s important. But when I began to say ‘no’ from a stance of ‘not enough,’ I was hoarding time, effort, attention and money.

When I saw the abundance in my life, I could become truly generous. When I finally admitted that I waste a couple hours each day watching TV, I was free to generously shower time and attention on my family. When I caught a glimpse of how I am uniquely created, I could generously use my talents toward an important cause. When I saw the over-the-top material blessings in my life, I was motivated to write a check to help a family in need.

When I began to see how much I really have, I could start saying no to stinginess. ”

Esther Feng, blogger, lover of words, and proud mother of two, in a post titled “Saying No to Stinginess” in the MOPS International MomEMail blog
