Today’s a good day to think about generosity for a moment.
Are we entering the season of giving, or the season of spending?
Are we making magic, or simply putting the two turtle doves in storage in order to make room for the partridge in a pear tree (a real must-have door-buster this season)?
There’s an enormous and important difference between giving generously and meaningfully vs. giving mindlessly beyond our means.
[It’s not just the shopping mall, of course. The season of overcommitment and overextension offers plenty of opportunities to consider what it looks like to be sustainably generous in many areas of life.]
