Virtue of the Week: Generosity

647

Generosity is giving and sharing.  You share freely, not with the idea of receiving something in return.  You find ways to give others happiness, and give just for the joy of giving.  Generosity is one of the best ways to show love and friendship.

You are practicing service when you:

Are thoughtful of the needs of others,

Advertising (skip)



Notice when someone needs help,

Give freely without expectation of reward,

Give fully without holding back,

Are willing to make sacrifices for others, and

Use wisdom about sharing treasured belongings.

Affirmation:

I am generous. I look for opportunities to give and to share. I take time to be thoughtful. I give freely, fully, and joyfully.

The Family Connection was established in 2005 by the Community Foundation of the Virgin Islands as an early-childhood initiative. The mission of TFC is to strengthen the community child care and early education infrastructure in the USVI by building awareness of the importance of early learning and development for success and working with community agencies to promote quality care and education.

One of its efforts is the Virtues Project, an international initiative focused on building peaceful and caring communities.

The Source supports the Virtues Project. We will publish one of the virtues developed by the project each week.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
