No Thought of Return
Generosity has a freedom attached to it. Generous people understand it. When a generous person gives, they do it with no expectation of return. Stingy people are easy to spot because they don’t give without a transactional expectation. They give themselves away because they have a hard time receiving a generous gift without feeling the need to make it transactional. They are uncomfortable when someone else offers to pay for their meal. They feel burdened and not blessed when they receive a thoughtful gift when they are not in the spot to reciprocate and they know they aren’t that thoughtful.
