Generosity

The world proposes selfishness whereas God proposes generosity. The happiness from selfishness is fleeting and depends on external circumstances, but the happiness from generosity is internally rooted in God.

The generosity of God and the great characters in the gospels, for example the apostles and the Virgin Mary, is awesome because the gospels relate the triumph of generosity.

Generosity is fundamental to Christianity, because through generosity we materialize the love of God to our neighbor. God is generous and wants us to live generously promoting stewardship and charity, while the world promotes ownership and wealth.  God operates from abundance showing what we have, and the world operates from scarcity showing what we lack.
