Generosity

So a billionaire announced in a speech at the Morehouse College graduation assembly that he and his family were creating a grant to pay the school loan debt of the entire graduating class.

Think of how great it must feel to receive a gift like that. Did you see the looks on the faces of graduates as they realized the significance of what was being announced?

And think of how great it must feel to give a gift like that. That grant has the potential of changing a lot of lives.

I’ve read lists from several people declaring all the lavish gifts they would give if only they were billionaires.

But maybe those of us who are not billionaires would be better off looking for ways to bless people now, with what we do have, rather than waiting until we get our first billion.

You and I may not be billionaires, but we can generously use whatever we do have today to bless others.
