Generosity recognizes that significance comes through relationships, serving and sharing with others. This often contrasts with success which focuses on accumulation, achievement and status.
How does one know when they are generous? When their significance is defined by serving others rather than serving one self. And this is the result of a changed heart.
Generous living can involve being spontaneous, but with a purpose. Generosity begins by recognizing how God richly blesses people. Generosity involves giving out of grace and gratitude with a feeling of joy. Most often generosity comes from the heart.
