When leadership demonstrates generosity, others learn the value of the gift. However, we must consider the nature of our generosity.
Intention: What is the motive behind our gift?
Object: What is the object of our generosity? Work? Family? Church? Lord?
Planned dedication: Is there a purpose planned in the gift?
Action: Are we ready to start giving…now?
Self-examination: What do we lose by holding on to the gift?
These questions help us determine the nature of and need behind our generosity.
