Generous Love

The final Sunday of Advent is the “love” candle, and that made me think about generosity – a fitting meditation as this week moves forward.

Here is where I come back around to Advent. Because, let’s remember: generosity and love are intimately linked. It is impossible to be generous toward someone you do not love—and if you do not love them when you start being generous toward them, it’s almost impossible not to end feeling some love. The sacrifice implicit in generous behaviour teaches us to love the one toward whom the generosity is extended.

May you be blessed with generous love this year.
