In a society that promotes fear of scarcity, it's difficult to be generous. We're afraid to give our time, energy, and money, because we're afraid there won't be enough left over for us. When possible, rise above this fear and practice generosity. Even if it's simply a generosity of spirit, it will touch those around you and you will feel lighter.
Today's words are by Henri J.M. Nouwen from The Return of the Prodigal Son.
Healing Words of the Day is an ongoing series with the intention of once a day shifting focus away from suffering and onto healing. Healing is a daily practice of listening to your inner voice and turning pain into purpose.
