STOP AND THINK – Generosity: it doesn’t cost a penny to pay it forward. (John Maxwell, motivational speaker and author)

Is Maxwell challenging us to pass on to others what we have without considering the cost? Maybe he’s not talking about money. If we have a generous spirit, we can often give the gift of help and encouragement to someone at the cost of only a little time and effort. When we consider that all we have is given us as a trust, it’s easier to share with others.

Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God . . . for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. (2 Corinthians 9:13)
