The season of giving

Putting aside for a moment the question of why giving can’t apply to every season…

I’ve been touched in a new way in hearing people’s giving stories. Someone saved up for a guitar for himself, and ended up giving the money to the guy in line behind him at the pawn shop who was pawning his son’s Playstation to pay the rent. A woman whose father is homeless in Las Vegas, living in a tunnel, is grateful for the woman who keeps an eye on him, and allows him into her home every once in a while for a shower. Hearing that daughter’s story, a man keeps cash in his car so that when he has found a homeless person (he looks for them), he meets them, talks with them, and gives them enough money for a couple of meals.

Do you practice this kind of generosity yourself? Do you know of giving stories you can share here?
