Freedom leads to Generosity

This afternoon our daughter was entertaining herself by writing poems. It was so much fun to watch her get so much joy out of the fun little poems she was crafting. Then she looked over at me and said, "You have freedom when you write poems!"

What an amazing statement from a young learning mind!

What was she saying? She was recognizing that with freedom come ideas. When we feel free, we are released to dream, imagine and think new thoughts. In contrast, when we are captive our creativity and thinking are held back and controlled by others.

Freedom creates the environment for new ideas. And the result of a free mind is that it is open to sharing its ideas with others because others have allowed it the freedom to think.

Freedom thus predisposes its beneficiary to be a Generous Mind. A natural response to our freedom is to be free with what our freedom has produced.

Are you free today? Do you feel empowered to think and create or are there forces in your life holding you captive. Only a soul that is free to think will be a generous soul.

Generous Input

One of the things we love about the Internet and the crowdsourcing it has empowered are the small but significant ways you can be generous with your input. Because of the dynamic and growing networks of people around the world, you can now share your input into decisions that have a real impact on organizations and individuals that you care about.

One example that you can join today is Brigada's crowdsourced logo project. They used a logo tournament site to get over one hundred potential logos and have now narrowed it down to 8 possibilities. Now it's your turn to help this great missions resource site pick a logo that you feel represents its ministry. Take a moment to view the top 8 logos and rate/comment on them by clicking here.

Then look for ways that you can give those within your network a chance to be generous with their input!
