The best thing about having something is being able to share it with others who don’t have.
As a growing child, my parents would insist I eat together with my brothers, I didn’t like that because I eat a little bit slower and hated hot things, but my mum would would insist we eat it hot.
So each day I would complain how the others finishes everything and I had little to eat, then my big bro told me not to worry that he has thought about something cool, so each time we are all given food together he would make us all to take turns to eat, one person at a time, this ensured that everyone eats at the same pace, I didn’t like it cause you have to waste too much time waiting for everyone to take turns there were 5 of us at the time, eventually this become a better option I didn’t have to complain.
When my father saw this he was happy he explained he wanted us to learn consideration for the next person, patience, lovey and above all treating family members with kindness… when we have Learnt this we went back to eating alone.
What this experience helped us achieve was that when we went to collect food in the pot we often asked how many persons is yet to eat, that would determine the amount of food we would take but in the past we would just take as much as our tommy can carry.
Bottomline, generosity bothers on being kind to one another and being able to share what we have with others who don’t have and of course absolutely being considerate of others, you may have it all, what about him, yes her the people next house, what about your sister or that your brother that eats slower can you come up with an attitude that would ensure everyone is proberly feed.
Kill them with kindness.
