The loving person is a generous person. Generosity is giving your attention, time, abilities, and money freely to others. I watched as the cashier rang up the purchases. When the lady went to pay, she was six dollars short. The lady behind her stepped up and said, “I’d be happy to give you six dollars.” “Oh no, the lady said, I can take some things back.” “I insist she said, take it as a gift from God.” “ Oh, well thank you very much, and God bless you.” That is an example of generosity. Generosity is one of the seven characteristics of love. The others are: kindness, patience, courtesy, forgiveness, honesty, and humility. In my book: Love As a Way of Life, you’ll find help in becoming the lover you want to be.
