Generosity is a Game Changer

Jon Acuff:
A friend of mine once told me that “generosity is a game changer.”
He said that when you’re generous, it completely changes an entire situation. And he’s right.
You will work harder for a boss who is generous to you.
You will work longer for a boss who is generous to you.
You will tell your smartest friends that they’d be smart to work for the company you work for if your boss is generous to you.
And that’s just work.
Generosity changes everything and this verse in Proverbs 11 is why I try to be generous with things I have:
25 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.
That’s such a smarter way to say something I learned recently. It turns out that helping other people change their lives is more awesome than obsessing about your own.
Be generous.
It’s a game changer.
