The principle of generosity is well proven, even if there are people who dismiss the Biblical promise that ensures that generosity is the sowing of seeds that leads to a big harvest. The reason some people do not believe or doubt this fact is that many of the benefits may not be experienced immediately. It is important to remember that our actions will always produce results. Sometimes they are much later than we expect and much greater than we expect. It goes both ways, for the good and the bad things we do.

We should strive to be generous with our time and treasure. Generosity can be as simple as well-thought words of affirmation to your spouse, family, or co-workers. Many times words of affirmation have a greater and longer lasting impact than monetary rewards. The benefits of being a generous person include better health, more wealth, and less stress. Hence, it could lead to longer life and better relationships.
