When we are generous, it enlarges our impact and influence. It is not just financial giving. We are talking about a lifestyle of generosity — to be generous with our time, with our praise of others, with our encouragement, our sympathy, our forgiveness, our compliments and our kindness. It means being generous with the attention we pay to others, to be generous in listening to others and to be generous in withholding judgment. Generosity is about living life as a giver, not as a taker.
