3 ways you’ve never heard generosity explained before

Generosity, it would seem, is an easy word to define. It means demonstrating kindness or hospitality. Most often we think of generosity in terms of giving something away: possessions, money, resources. But read on for this story from Christian Investors about some new ways to shape our generosity.
