Moments for Mums: Generosity - Part 1Sample

Moments for Mums: Generosity - Part 1

DAY 1 OF 3

My daughter loves to write us notes and gather one of her belongings to wrap up and give to us. She gave me several sheets from her new butterfly sticker book recently. A small gesture but driven by a generous heart. My heart melted at her excitement when I stuck one of the butterflies onto my planner page for the day.

The core of generosity is kindness and a desire to make a difference in someone else’s life. It recognizes the value of what we have (time, resources, wisdom) and the benefit that would bring to someone else’s need. I didn’t need stickers, but I needed encouragement to be seen and appreciated. 

Generosity is wrapped up in how we act justly and love kindness and mercy. It becomes the outworking of this. Let’s have eyes to see where justice and kindness are needed in our homes, communities, and worlds. Let’s recognize the value of what we can contribute, even if it seems small.


What is a small act of generosity that you can make today?


Lord, help us not be so wrapped up in ourselves that we miss the need around us. Show us how to be generous today. Amen.
