Open handed life ( pt. 2)

Philippians 2:3 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves.

...love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

When I look at the attributes I talked about in the previous
post... the next one that really touches me is generosity.
One thing that has been burgeoning so deep in my heart is always be generous of spirit. When I am with people I am learning to discipline myself to be totally present. To avail myself.
It is written that "deep calls to deep" and I believe that ones heart knows if you are turned toward them and available.
Generosity is an attitude, not an occasional act, or donation. This is a paradigm shift that has most got my attention lately.
Generosity also encompasses the others, you most humble yourself to give, it is evident that it is sincere, and it usually is expressed as some form of hospitality...
Happy February... happy open handed life!
