It is not necessary that the spirit of generosity be shown always by the spending of money; in every little thing one can show it. Generosity is an attitude a person shows in every little action that he does for people that he comes in contact with in his everyday life.

  • One can show generosity by a smile, by a kind glance, by a warm handshake;
  • by patting the younger soul on the shoulder as a mark of encouragement,
  • of showing appreciation, of expressing affection.
  • Generosity one can show in accommodating one's fellow-man, in welcoming him,
  • in bidding farewell to one's friend.
  • In thought, word, and deed, in every manner and form one can show that generous spirit which is the sign of the godly.
