A Generous Performer

I saw a great example of being a Generous Mind at church yesterday. Usually we have a drummer who sits behind the plastic shields and does his thing. But this Sunday they were using some bongo drums and creative percussion instruments - like those rainmaker sticks.

Anyway, there was a man playing percussion and next to him was, I assume, his son. His son was on several of the smaller instruments. He did a wonderful job, but I could tell that this was a father who was teaching his son.

What an amazing thing to watch a father trust his son in front of a big crowd and to watch the son follow the dad's lead as they worked through each song. I could see a father who had invested in his son in a special way.

What a challenge to us. How are we being generous with what we know? How are we taking those ideas and proactively sharing them with many more people?
