GenerosityI am thankful for 

GENUINE 

Generosity.

Genuine generosity comes from the heart not by obligation, mandate or by taxes. 

There have been many times in my adult life that genuine generosity has been shown to me but never had I seen it like I did during the flooding of the Mouse River when it swept through our home the Summer of 2011. 

Genuine generosity looks like a pastor and his family helping you load the clothes washer and dryer out of your basement and into his pickup truck to take to someones home for safe keeping before the flood. (it wasn't our pastor and we did not know the person willing to store our belonging for as long as we needed at no charge).

Genuine generosity looks like a group of teens helping to "muck out" your home that had a muddy river run through it for a months time.

Genuine generosity looks like a church family handing you a check big enough to help you get by and through a disaster.

I could, and should go on but that was just ONE instance of genuine generosity I personally have experienced. I could write a chapter in a book at how inept the government administration was in 2011 but instead I will just vote for the party that was not in power at the time for the rest of my life.

 Horn Of Plenty

Being Christian/Southern Gospel music is the genre I listen to I'm exposed to generosity every day and all the time. Currently our station is in a food/gift drive for those who need a little help during the holidays. For more about this worthy cause go to KHRT.com and get the details. 

I find it easy to be generous because He who has provided me with all that has ever be created gave his own Sons life for mine that I not perish for all eternity.

Thank you Debbie Reynolds for this Thanksgiving Challenge.

That's very true A. Ron and Alexandra Seigel . It's to bad many people do not act on that natural instinct.

Hi Kathy Streib I agree that the wonderful action of giving from the heart will never go out of style. I too have learned a lot from those with giving hearts.

Morning Bob.

I never want to feel obligated to anyone or anything, except the agents who have given me the opportunity to help them in their profession.  Of course, to my family, that goes without saying

I do think obligation can work in this one way. The reason to be rich is so you can afford to be generous. That being said there is no substitute for investing your time and effort that goes beyond money.

Bob "RealMan" Timm We hear often of the generosity of people helping people when a tradgedy stricks family,  a neigborhood or city.  That is who we are as a  nation and I am very grateful to live in a country such as ours. And you certainly experienced generosity with the terrible flood you guys had - people can me amazing!

Very well said Joe Pryor but let's not forget that the greatest example of giving, according to Jesus, was recorded in the book of Mark chapter 12 verse 44:

The Widow's Offering
43Jesus called His disciples to Him and said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more than all the others into the treasury. 44For they all contributed out of their surplus, but she out of her poverty has put in all she had to live on.”

The amount she put in was a coin called a mite and it was worth about a tenth of a cent.

Like most things in life, true generosity seems to happen quietly, and behind the scenes. To me, it's our acts of love and kindness we do on a daily basis to help those who need a bit of assistance - on many levels. Being a kind and compassionate and generous human being should come naturally, but sadly, not always for some.

There are so many opportunities that present themselves at this time of the year for people to show generosity. But need happens all year long and we should be looking and asking where we can help.

Thank you Kasey & John Boles . A lot of people are generous out of their abundance because it's no sacrifice to them. There is nothing more genuine than those that give sacrifice to help others.
