#283 Never Pass Up an Opportunity

I said to a friend, who was complaining about something his wife wanted — never pass up an opportunity to be generous! I say it to people who are appalled that I give roadside beggars money — never pass up an opportunity to be generous.

I’ll say it again and again — NEVER PASS UP AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE GENEROUS.

Generosity often includes money, but not always. Be generous with kindness, with time, with acceptance, with curiosity, with everything. If you start paying attention, you’ll see that there are dozens of times every day to practice generosity.

Never pass up an opportunity to be generous — genuine, open-hearted, open-handed, non-self-aggrandizing, joyful generosity.
