Be generous this Christmas season.

Generous with your encouragement.

Generous with your praise.

Generous in your opinion of others.

Generous with the custard on your guests’ puddings.

Generous towards others when queuing in a busy store.

Generous with the tinsel on your Christmas tree.

Generous with your “Merry Christmases” to random strangers on the street.

Generous in how you think about yourself.

And while you’re at it, be reminded of God’s generosity in the original Christmas.
