Day 15- Beyond Myself

Pin It Now!

It's Day 15! This 31 Day Challenge just keeps getting better and better with each day. It gives me a reason to blog, a reason to think, and a reason to reflect on how important it is to think about my family, friends, and faith every day.

Today's challenge:
16. Find a way to be generous and selfless at the same time.
After I get out of class for the day, I'm going to head to the library and be available to other kids in my English class for help setting up a blog. We are required to create a muli-media project as a component to our current paper assignment (more details to come), and I thought that since I have a little experience with blogs and online journalism, I would step up and give some helpful hints/advice.
Although I do have a lot to do on the project myself, I am setting aside that specific time to help others- using my gifts and knowledge in all possible ways that I can help.

Being generous and loving is such a taboo topic in modern-day society. People are way too often guarded, protective and individualistic. Don't get me wrong, it's important to look out for yourself—but it's also important keep yourself from being the center of attention all the time and the object of all your concerns.

Believe me, you'll drive yourself crazy.

I encourage you to find a way to be generous today- with your time, your energy, your money, your spirit... anything.

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."
Luke 6:38

  1. This is such an awesome post! I think generosity is so quickly overlooked becase we're always thinking about our own problems, needs, wants, and we tend to forget about others.
