“Don’t let those who take advantage of your generosity stop you from being generous.”
~ Author Unknown
When one’s generosity toward others is taken advantage of and not appreciated, it can be tempting to pull back in one’s giving and withhold in the future for fear of being taken advantage of again. Jesus Christ did counsel his followers to not throw their pearls before swine–before the selfishness of mortal mind to be trampled in the mud of ingratitude.
However, Love never withholds. Love just can’t help but give, because that’s what Love does. And to the person who identifies with divine Love as His source and reason to live, it’s impossible to withhold.
But Love is also wise. The Mind of Love uses its assets for the best possible purpose and the best outcomes.
So, it’s okay to be discerning about where you bestow your generosity. There are always people who are grateful for help received, and any others are being taught by God how to be grateful in God’s own special way. Meanwhile, Love just keeps on loving and giving, helping and healing.
Love is not stingy, fearful or afraid. Love is beneficent, magnificent and all-inclusive.
Love is the happy way to live, and in truth, it is never taken advantage of because it always has more to give. It is inexhaustible!
