“As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.”
1 Peter 4:10 NASB
“The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”
Proverbs 11:25 NLT
When we hear the word “generosity” we often think in terms of financial donations. Yet as business leaders, even though your financial resources are much needed and appreciated, you have much more to offer – it’s called time. I know we all say we’re really busy but it’s always amazed me how the busiest people seem to find time to serve others. Each day I am so grateful to God for the time that He has given me. In this journey of my life I have come to realize that time is a gift from God. It’s a gift given to share with others. Kenneth Blanchard said, “The best minute you spend is the one you invest in people,” and Suze Orman said, “Time and love are the most valuable possession you can share.”
Heavenly Father, I am thankful for this precious gift of time that you have given me. Help me to never take it for granted. Help me, God, that I may be a better steward of this gift and that I would see how precious time really is and would determine in my heart to invest my time in others.
