GENEROSITY – CONTAGIOUS

I was the recipient of an extremely generous gift today.   I’m blown away.   This person did not know me.   This person did not have any reason to bless me.   Yet, they blessed me tremendously.

They did, however, care enough to ask how I was doing.   From there, an act of spontaneous generosity happened.   And I had the joy of being the recipient.

Have you ever been there?   Blessed because someone cared enough ask and then did something about it.

I’m sure you’re wondering what the blessing was.   Click HERE to see what it was and then read the rest …

It was a cup of herbal mint tea with two doses of honey.

You see, I spoke for 10 hours straight on Wednesday at First Christian Church in Owasso, OK (an INCREDIBLE church!) and my voice was impacted greatly.   To the point that I woke up Thursday morning with hardly any voice.   I whispered my order of Pike’s Place Coffee (no room for cream or sugar), and yes, please make it a Grande.   The young lady taking my order asked how I was doing, and I said (whispered), “I wish my voice would return!”

Immediately, she said that I needed to try this special tea with honey in it.   It was an herbal mint tea with two doses of honey.     And the tea REALLY HELPED MY VOICE!!!   Her spontaneous act of generosity BLESSED ME GREATLY and humbled me at the same time.

When was the last time you blessed someone?   After all, that’s why you want to win with your money, right?   To bless others and fund your dreams and the hopes of others?   There is nothing greater than giving.

    For me, the key here is being humble and vulnerable enough to admit I have a need. So often I go through my day not wanting to impose my needs on anyone. I wonder if God gets frustrated with me at times because He wants me to break down and tell someone (other than just Him – LOL!) “hey, I need some help here.” We really can’t do life alone. So today I broke down and told several of my friends that I was having a bad day and needed prayers. They blessed me so much more than just the kind words they sent back to me. I had offers for food and visits. Best part, my mood has lifted. I feel so loved. Greatest gift ever. :-)
