25 The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.
Generosity is freely sharing what you have with others. It is being willing to offer money, help or time when it is needed. To be generous means giving something that is valuable to you without expectation of reward or return.
Generosity in general terms means goodness. The bitter truth is that in this 21st century, it is hard to find a generous individual but a ray of light is always present amidst the darkness around. A genuine individual possesses certain distinct characteristics. It’s rare. Not all people have that characteristic, so you’re lucky if you have that one.
My mother said it’s okay to give than to receive, because that the true meaning of being generous. She said don’t stop being kind and generous to other people because what if one day your the one who need help? There’s a people will help you. When you give something from your heart without expecting anything in return, you release a powerful force that will trigger your good deed to “bounce” back to you in amazing, and sometimes unusual ways.
I firmly believe that whatever you impart to others will come back to you a hundred fold. You are doing yourself a big favor by helping someone in need. By doing even the smallest acts of generosity, you are inviting good vibrations to come into your life. You would be earning the respect and love of your recipients. You know that you will always have a loyal group of friends who would help, protect, and do anything for you just because they feel that they have to repay you in any way they can. Most people would have the urge or drive to reciprocate any act of kindness you’ve shown them. However, this does not mean that you must expect them to repay you. Give without any expectation of rewards. Don’t do it just because you have an ulterior motive. Give unconditionally. Give because you are happy doing it. The universe will get back to you in its own special way.
It’s very overwhelming when someone says, “Thank you, very much” to you, i totally appreciate it. I think my heart melt and getting bigger when i hear that words, it’s like an humming bird to my ears. Something reminds that i do a good job, that i help other people even just it is just a small things.
Giving is a healthy habit. It could prolong your life by instilling within you an inner sense of peace and accomplishment. So, when people need help don’t hesitate to help them, it will bounce back. And i think it is beneficial both mental and physical; it reduce stress, sense of purpose, fight depression, increase one’s lifespan. Better be generous than to self-centered.
