Generosity is Determined

I am reading a biography of William Wilberforce - the British politician who pushed the abolition of slavery through Parliament. It is fascinating. He spent years and years working towards this goal. Every time he spoke, it was on this topic or was related in its moral focus. He was dedicated.

Many times you want to be generous with an idea but people don't want it. Usually we think of ideas as hot ticket items that people want to steal, but it is more often than not the reverse. We must be convinced that God wants us to share an idea and persistently look for the right ground on which it will grow. That can take years or maybe it will not even be in our lifetime.

Are we that committed to sharing what we know?
