Taking Care of Our Own

In the wake of the recent occurrences with the large number of people trying to get into our country seeking asylum from others many people have quoted the Scriptures stating that we should be welcoming them in. Yes that is true, but there are some Scriptures that they conveniently forget that are of utmost importance. These immigrants are to be treated as if they are members of the society and not special and above the native born. If we cannot even care for our own why do we treat non-natives better?    

And if a stranger sojourns among you and would keep the Passover to the Lord, according to the statute of the Passover and according to its rule, so shall he do. You shall have one statute, both for the sojourner and for the native.” Numbers 9:14

 For the assembly, there shall be one statute for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you, a statute forever throughout your generations. You and the sojourner shall be alike before the Lord.  One law and one rule shall be for you and for the stranger who sojourns with you.” Numbers 15:15-16

Lack of adherence to the local laws, statutes and practices is what leads to societal breakdown and disharmony.   

If a person enters our country they are subject to the same laws of the land as the native born. If we cannot care for our own homeless and poverty stricken why do we give the money to the immigrant who has not proven loyalty to the laws of the land. We have spent more money helping outside countries than those who are in need here.

MSN has had many articles about poverty in the states and ways to help but people have ignored them. I have heard from many that they do not give to these charities because not enough goes to those who are in need and instead goes into the pockets of those in charge. Internet fundraising sites are getting a bad rap from misuse due to fake needs. There are ways of getting assistance but some are just too lazy to go about it the right and proper way.

There are some immigrants who have blended in and have become patriots of our society who follow the law but they are marred by those who continually make a bad name through illegally entering or coming in then committing a crime getting deported and reentering illegally again and committing another crime. It is a bad situation and must be stopped.

Those who welcome immigrants must be prepared to educate them into the ways of the land but first should open their doors to the native born in need. How can we help others if we cannot help ourselves?    

The process for those seeking entrance into the country through asylum or desire citizenship need to be made aware of and should take an oath of acceptance of our rules and statutes prior to entering with the understanding that if they fail to abide and adhere then they will be deported. There should be no monetary assistance for them until they have fully integrated legally.

I know I sound rash and rough on this subject but if we cannot take care of our own in need then how do we justify taking care of those outside our sphere of influence. God told the Israelites to treat others as they would themselves (following the laws, statutes, principles, and adhering to God’s rule). Jesus had instructed us to take care of our own first so that all can help others in need. This is what we are to do.

The Uniqueness of We

What happens when you are surrounded by many people with the same thoughts and attitudes? Nine times out of ten we concede on our own ideals and blend in with the crowd to be liked and loved. Human nature explains that we are social creatures and will do what is necessary to fit in to the situation at hand sometimes compromising our thoughts and beliefs, losing ourselves in the process.

A Danger Seen But Not Conquered

All too often the youth are easily influenced to be like others with whom they really have nothing in common. This is especially bad when certain people who have abused their gifts are given a platform to share their idealisms and agendas that are not in concert with God’s plan. Think of what has happened in the last 120 years with the event of audio/visual media. First used as a way of informing people of things happening in the local area, it has flourished into a means of delivering both true and false information throughout the world. The owners and those who make an extravagant living off of fame think they have the power and the right to influence the way people think. They really do not.  

God created each of us as unique persons with one purpose, to take care of His creation through expressing His Image through mirroring His Love. Yes we all have the same purpose but each of us has been given a gift to be used for His glory. We are not supposed to be hateful towards each other. We should not hold grudges or bitterness towards anyone whether we approve of their lifestyle or not. God gave us the opportunity to be unique and use our gifts to live together in love, not away from each other in fear.

You Cannot Be Completely Like Mike

For those who may be jealous of one person’s gift and desire to be like that person, you have to realize that God designed that individual to succeed in that gift and not you because your purpose is elsewhere. If everyone tries to be like someone else, our uniqueness and gifts are wasted and God’s purpose for us is overtaken by the devil’s desire to overthrow God.

Satan has placed His demons in areas that control those who do not know God or refuse to know Him. He has created a world where money and materialism control our lives so our uniqueness is hidden away. When we open our eyes and accept Christ as Lord and Savior, Satan loses control. Once we rely on Jesus our gifts become more apparent but we must fully submit to Christ. It is honestly real easy but it is the hardest thing to do if you remain attached to the things of your past.

Regain Your Uniqueness  

Putting your full Faith and Trust in God helps you discover the real you. For some it takes a long time but it will happen. We are all infused with a servant’s heart it just depends on the specific gift on how we are to serve others. Are you able to teach, sing, play an instrument? Do you have good business sense and can lead others? Look even the ability to stack a bunch of cards in a pyramid without it falling shows the potential for a natural gift of construction or engineering (either that or you can balance things easy). We are meant to share our gifts with specific people groups but all is for the Glory of God and His creation of which we are a part of.

Be unique, share your uniqueness with others but to not convince them that your way is the only way because you will going against God. Do not go against the Commandments nor the teachings of a right moral life or you may be easily influenced and lose your you which God made you to be.

Brothers and Sisters, Love one another as He loves us. Love your neighbor as yourself and do not hold anything against them. Be in Christ and Live.

Jewish Influence in the Lord’s Prayer

What I am about to talk about today may shock and challenge some people who are blind to certain facts of historical significance. There are many things about Christianity that so many have been blinded from by radicals who desire supremacy over others when the origins do not even belong to their ethnicity. There is no “Master Race”. There is no White Jesus or Black Jesus. Here is the fact. Jesus was born of Middle Eastern ethnicity in Bethlehem in Judea. His mother and earthly father came from Nazareth. Both of them are descendants of Abraham who descended from Noah who descended from Adam. When Rome took The Way and made it into the national religion called Christianity they tried to strip away all things Jewish except that one fact.  

Did you know that the Lord’s Prayer and other things we say and do as Christians have Jewish roots? In fact, we would not have Christianity except that the first people who knew Jesus and spread the faith were Jewish.     

So we ask this question, “How did Jewish Liturgy influence the Lord’s Prayer?”

Jesus taught us the model on how to talk to God in prayer. Here is the Lord’s Prayer as we know it.

Pray then like this:

“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name.
Your kingdom come, your will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
 Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts,
as we also have forgiven our debtors.
 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Matthew 6:9-13 (ESV)

Now Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” And he said to them, “When you pray, say:

“Father, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins,
for we ourselves forgive everyone who is indebted to us.
And lead us not into temptation.”
  Luke 1:1-4

For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory Forever, AMEN was added later.

The Lord’s Prayer is by far the most central and well-known Christian prayer in the world but it has almost word by word similarities with different Jewish prayers.

First, the content of the Lord’s Prayer is the same as the key Jewish liturgical concept of אבינו מלכנו (pronounced: Avinu Malkenu). When translated it means “Our Father, Our King”. In fact, everything in the Lord’s Prayer is centered around either the fatherhood or kingship of God.

Our Father, Who art in heaven

​The prayer begins by professing our core religious belief that God is our heavenly Father who is all knowing and all powerful. Notice that Jesus didn’t instruct us to say, “My Father” but stressed “Our Father.” God is not just the Father of one or five children but the Father of the human race.

 “Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. Do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” (Matt.6:9b-13a)

Second, there are word-by-word parallels between the Lord’s Prayer and variety of Jewish prayers such as “Our Father, Our King”, the “Amidah”, and the “Morning Blessings”. Here is one example from each:

אָבִינוּ מַלְכֵּנוּ סְלַח וּמְחַל לְכָל עֲוֹנוֹתֵינוּ

Our Father, Our King, forgive and pardon all our sins.

נְקַדֵּשׁ אֶת שִׁמְךָ בָּעוֹלָם כְּשֵׁם שֶׁמַקְדִּישִׁים אוֹתוֹ בִּשְׁמֵי מָרוֹם

We will sanctify your Name in this world, as it is sanctified in high heaven.

ואל תביאנו לא לידי חטא ולא לידי עברה ועון, ולא לידי נסיון ולא לידי בזיון, ואל ישלט בנו יצר הרע

Lead us not into sin and transgression, iniquity, temptation and disgrace, so that evil will not rule over us.

Jesus had taken what was already known from established prayers and petitions to God and gave them deeper meaning outside of the realm of Israel as the plan was originally intended.

The liturgy of Jewish prayers, their festivals, and traditions, are the basis of all things Christian. Some modern scholars even want the Old Testament put aside but then call the New Testament, Scripture. The Word of God, Jesus, is found at the very beginning of the Christian Bible cannot be ignored. Jesus gave the two Great Commandments but they lose their meaning without understanding the Ten Commandments. The Great Commandments are the culmination of the Ten so everything in the Ten still apply.

STOP THE HATE

This Anti-Semitism and ethnicity hatred that has grown stronger must stop. We are supposed to be helping the Jews see Jesus in a peaceful manner not by killing them like the zealous Catholics did during the Inquisition. We should be spreading Love not hatred because we are all of the same flesh. Our outward appearance comes from a manipulation of dirt, clay, and water. That is what our bodies will return to. Our spirits live on after the body dies. There is no color, gender, or ethnicity, just the spirit. We are all one. Let’s start acting like it. Look at the inner person not the sinful shell. Be the Child of God He desires us to be. Love one another, give up the hatred and all things that keep us in the world. That is one of the ways we will have communion with God.

Brothers and Sisters, the time is past and we are already hurting. Now is the time for healing.

Love to All,

Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood was a multifaceted show about growth and diversity. It was a show that all ages learned from even though the focus was on building up children with a godly set of behaviors that would hopefully bring God back into a society that was lost to so many worldly and evil ways. While it did work for some it did not work for all.

He taught how to be kind and generous to all people in a time where civil rights were being fought for. The show had lessons on diversity and how not to judge others based on skin color, upbringing, and social status. His was a way of bringing the problems to light without talking directly about the problems but showing the solutions and a right way of unity in diversity. Mr. Rogers was a Good Samaritan.  

God shows Mercy and Grace to us but we have problems showing the same to our brothers and sisters (all humans). We need unity in diversity. We need to show the world that we can live together in a non-judgmental way. Everyone is broken and there is no need to bully someone whose brokenness is different from your own.

When we judge someone based on their ethnicity, religious beliefs, and social status, we are really judging ourselves. This comparison to make one feel better about oneself while degrading another is keeping the world separate from God. Yeah we have people who do missions all over the world but the world has mission fields for people who live as little as five to ten feet away from each other. That mission, Love one another just as God has loved us, and Loving our neighbor as ourselves. If we cannot be kind to the people who live on the same street, how can we validate our kindness to people in other countries?

How do we live with ourselves knowing that someone is hurting but not being kind? This can even be in your own house. Mistakes are made, but without talking about them and forgiving one another within walking distance, we have no right to go over an ocean to share the Word.

Jesus taught us to love one another. That is to be kind, generous, caring, and showing compassion towards each other; not to show jealousy, judgement, bigotry, loathing, and all other evilness. How do you treat your neighbor? Are you really a “good neighbor”.

Do you show earthly or Godly hospitality? Are you all about making good impressions through physical means or Spiritual? Would you give the shirt off your back and your coat as well to someone who is cold and does not have it while you have plenty. God gives the faithful the resources to help those in need. He equips us to be that good neighbor.

Will you be a good neighbor?

Blessings,

The Shame Of Shaming

Why do people shame others for their looks or their way of life? Is it out of jealousy or is there some other factors or belief systems that cause people to act this way? Thing is, either way it is not the Godly thing to do even though the problem of shaming is largely within the whole of Christianity. Shame results in a loss of dignity and causes emotional pain. Why would a Christian do that to another?Shame of Shaming

Purity

Remaining sexually pure before marriage is biblically sound but not a reason to overemphasize it so much that it causes physical and psychological damage to youth who become so scared that they cannot have a healthy relationship that would grow into love and marriage. The Evangelical Purity Movement has done just that. We understand that desires of the body happen but the youth do not need to be shamed into believing those feelings are wrong and of the devil.

Instead youth leaders should discuss the emotional impact of those desires and how to live with and  control them from a Jesus perspective. Dealing with desires from a Jesus loving style perspective helps a developing person embrace the emotions on a spiritual level and the ability to face and take on the giant of persecution and ridicule from peers who tease them for their decision. Dealing with this in a loving and caring way instead of public shaming will be more beneficial for the youth in their later years and help enhance the marriage experience as it is a gift from God.

Appearance and Preference    

Shaming happens on all sides of humanity not just by religious zealots. This stems from many things within cultures and the worldview of specific societies. There is absolutely no reason to body shame someone or shame someone for their sexual preference. They are dealing with their own demons and have either accepted the way they are or are trying to change themselves for their health or otherwise. When a person is shamed for their appearance, especially when it comes to weight (too skinny or overweight), this can cause a person who has low self-esteem to get worse. If a person is really trying to get healthy it puts them in a place that either makes them work twice as hard to get to a healthy weight or for the person to increase their issue which can be more damaging either way.

There are people who have certain diseases that must be overcome personally if they want to get to the scientifically recommended healthy weight. The mistake is that people will shame another and sometimes make things much worse. We cannot be doing that and say that we are Children of God. Instead, Love on them and ask if there is a way to help them through. Be the accountability partner or just a caring friend. Someone the person can count on for encouragement as he or she struggles.

As for preference, Brothers and Sisters we are not judges of man’s ways considered as sinful by God. We are here to love one another and bring all people closer to God so they can choose to confess and repent of their sins. The choices people make are their own decisions we cannot choose their lifestyle for them. This goes for all sins because all sins are treated equally in God’s eyes. Some are abominations according to God’s Word, yes, but the only unforgivable sin is the complete denial and turning away from God.

People born on this earth of all ethnicities, creeds, social constructs, and preferences are created by God. The choices made by the individual will determine their life in eternity until the fire. We have no right to shame anyone in order to control their thoughts and deeds or to satisfy our jealousies. That is not to be our way. Jesus taught us to love in all adversity because we are all God’s Children no matter what. Through God’s Love we can all work together and bring the Kingdom closer.

Continue in prayer for those who are in harm’s way be it war or natural disaster. Pray for the sick and dying that they may be comforted and call of Jesus. Pray for those who mourn this sinful life that they may find comfort and forgiveness in God’s arms. Brothers and Sisters, be blessed this week and all weeks ahead to the day of the Lord’s return.

Don’t Cause Another to Stumble

Therefore let us stop passing judgment on one another. Instead, make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister. Romans 14:13

Why are we so quick to judge actions and reactions of others that make them stumble or make it so that they have to take the time from what they were doing to correct the allegations whether they be true or false? This passage is talking about false judgements. All too often, people judge without knowing the truth of the matter and cause a person to have to correct misnomers where a correction was not required before.

Why do we do this?

There are many reasons people lay judgements and blame for things that cause another to stumble. Most of the false accusations are due to being petty, bitterness, jealous, or flat out lying to make themselves look better than the other.

Pettiness is not the Christian way. It is defined as, ”undue concern with trivial matters, especially of a small-minded or spiteful nature”. I know that word is usually found when talking about nonsense arguments but it also goes well with judgements especially when one is jealous of another. When a person concerns themselves with things that are not of major concern about another individual, they are being petty. A petty person will judge another out of spite and jealousy. This will only grow the bitterness of a person and lead to false accusations when in truth the person spreading the accusations is actually at fault.

Lives of very good people have been ruined with little chance of recovery when the accusations reach those who know and depend on the person and they do not see the truth. I have seen people who call themselves Christians being petty and spreading false rumors which cause other people to falsely judge. It is very disheartening the trouble it caused the victim. The person will eventually answer for his or her words and actions when the truth comes out.    

What is Our Responsibility?

First and foremost we should not be jealous of another because of who they are. Jealousy, pettiness, bitterness, and lying are not fruits or gifts of the Spirit. If a brother or sister is found in sin that they cannot escape from we should be encouraging them to put away the things that caused the sin so the temptation is no longer there. In this way we are not judging but helping the person turn away from sin and back to Christ defeating the devil one part of the Kingdom at a time.

Are we not supposed to do unto others as we would have done to ourselves? By making another stumble you are opening yourself up to the same. It may take years for it to occur but it will happen. We are not the judge, God is. 

If we ignore those who judge and do not give in to their will we can be successful. Be careful not to judge the judge but turn the other cheek standing strong in Faith with God’s Strength and Love. Let them feel good about themselves for that will only be temporary. God will take care of them be it here in this life or in the next. Be blessed today and every day wrapped in the arms of Jesus.

In Whom do You Put Your Trust?

We all want to get to the “Pearly Gates” and hear the words, “Welcome home good and faithful servant!” but how do know we are a faithful servant. Faithfulness is a Fruit of the Spirit. It is the quality of being faithful to God and His ways. 

Faithfulness: the result of the Spirit working in us. The Holy Spirit dwells in those who accept the truth that God will and has saved us from sin and death through the sacrifice of His Son. Faith is placing our trust in God that He is provider, protector, savior. It is putting our lives in His hands and choosing to let the way and will of God be the controlling factor in our lives.

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible. Hebrews 11:1-3

Hebrews 11 gives a long list of the faithful from the Old Testament who trusted God. The list is of people that knew God and put their full trust in Him. Some translations will see the word “trust” instead of “faith” in this portion because they trusted God after being witness to certain events which caused them to place their faith, their lives into God’s hands.

Jesus informs us that true faith the size of a mustard seed can be seen as great when it is seen by the world (active). That is putting full trust in the Lord Almighty and great things can be accomplished. This leads to the description of an active faith verses a going through the motions faith. Just going to church on Sunday and not being involved nor sharing your witness does not mean you are full of faith. You are going through the motions of being a Christian inside the walls and boxing up God. True faith is an active faith where you live it daily. You put your life in God’s hands fully trusting that living for and in Him will get you through while showing others who you are. Yes that means you will disrupt the normalcy of worldly work and be subject of ridicule but that is okay. You have God.

Trusting others is important to make it through the day but God needs your full trust more than anyone. Having this trust gives you the strength to put your trust in the right people and helps you discern who to place your trust in. Being faithful to God will help direct you to the people God will place in your path and guide you through your interactions. Be aware that some that call themselves Christian still have the stints in their eyes and will cause more pain than anything. They are concerned more for themselves and living in the world, do not trust them. Instead surround yourself with those whom you know are truly faithful or those who are searching and the Spirit will shine through you.

Brothers and Sisters, be careful and let God guide you. Place your life fully in His hands trusting in Him to give you the strength when you are at your weakest no matter the circumstance. In His Love you will be comforted. Blessings.

God’s Plan Will Prevail

Proverbs is the greatest place for one line verses that can make or break a person. These little quips of knowledge and understanding have moved so many people to a right way of life. There are many things we can learn from Scripture but most of the ways of responsible and common sense Godly living are covered in this book.

One of the things covered in Proverbs is making plans. Now making plans is good to a point, but before executing the plan make sure you pray over your day that the plans are what God needs you to do.

 One can devise many plans in one’s mind, but Adonai’s plan will prevail. Proverbs 19: 21 (CJB)

God knows the plans He has for us (Jeremiah 29:11) to be a successful person, the main thing that must be done is prayer. Yes God will direct us onto the right path but if we ignore God by doing our own thing then we will have to get through many obstacles before getting to the right place. When we stray from His plan and have a real bad experience we can lose trust in Him but a faithful person will stay on track and make it through to the end.

We are all sinners and the Adversary has made himself known through all the evil and influencing people to influence others astray. The worst part of the influencing has been making good evil and evil good. Common sense and responsibilities have become bad things. Our minds are clouded to the point where many are blaming everyone else for their troubles when they do not want to take responsibility for their own actions. In fact, being a God fearing, responsible, common sense minded adult has become a bad word. Adulting (the act of behaving like a responsible adult) is like a disease to many who do not want to be responsible for themselves and depend on worldly things to control them.

The influence of the devil’s power has corrupted many and the disease is spreading like wildfire. These plans are not of God but of the devil. So much sin has become the norm that even some established church bodies have caught the disease and forgotten their ways. We really cannot let this perversion of the gospel go on much longer.     

Brothers and Sisters we must do more than just pray for the souls of the lost. We must pray that our lights get so bright that it opens the eyes of those blinded by all things that are against God. The trust of the masses needs to turn back to God so that we can survive. According to Scripture, we already know that there will be many who are destroyed in the pit because their minds and hearts have turned so far away that there is no return but we can hope for change. We still have influence in this world through the power of the Holy Spirit and our faith, hope, and trust in the Lord God Almighty. The thing is to make sure we are doing the right thing so we do not go through the pains of human plans by fully relying on God.

Keep the Doors Open

Churches ClosingChurches that close their doors to others will eventually close permanently. I have seen this happen with small churches in the “Bible Belt” that were started by families where one family’s legacy thinks they can run the church. These types of churches are the ones that are very picky about whom they let in and try to have preachers that only preach what they want to hear rather than what they need to hear.

The Body of Christ, the church, when stagnant like that becomes malnourished in the spirit and will suffer greatly. The Body of Christ, the community, that continues to grow without succumbing to worldly needs and desires will flourish from the growth of the nurturing spirit. The church that is strict on tradition and old legacy will die while a community of believers who grow in Godly values and character build up to the point of expansion and will move throughout the world.

The first Christian Communities had a hard time wherever they went and were closed off but they flourished because of their values and character which emulated the Image of God. Yes there were some zealots within who wanted to battle their oppressors with fists and iron but they died by the sword as Jesus had said they would. Today, the fists and iron are replaced by those unchanging traditions and specific adherence to a specific translation. The people that go into the world with the power of the Holy Spirit share and bear the Fruits of the Spirit upon others and grow.

Doors and Walls are a Barrier    

If God meant for a select group of people to shut themselves away then His Word would have never reached the ancient world. The tent of meeting only closed its flaps when there was private counsel otherwise it was always open for the hearing of the Word. The Tabernacle had an area where the priests received the Word but the rest was almost always open. The First Temple shut away the Holy of Holies which separated God from man and gave the Priests control. How similar are those churches who shut their doors well before the service begins and has no one to greet a single soul.

At Path-Way there are no closed doors and we welcome all who wish to hear the Word. We believe in God’s Word reaching the full Community of Believers no matter the denomination. Jesus spoke in the open and only held private counsel with the twelve so why should we exclude anyone who wants or needs to hear the Word.

Brothers and Sisters, we need to share God’s Word in all ways, in all languages, in all the world. Do not succumb to worldly society but the Community of God. His is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Following the examples of the past during and right after the time of Jesus and the Apostles, we can change the world. We need to strive to live for Him who saved and continues to save us and we will complete the earthly process of bringing the Kingdom to all the world.

Be Blessed,

The Kindness of Generosity

A kind man benefits himself, but a cruel man brings trouble on himself.  Proverbs 11:17

One of the best ways to describe the Fruits of The Spirit to children is to give an example of actual fruit.

When we eat grapes, we often share them.  A stem of grapes can be shared with many people.  Grapes represent being kind to others because we can share them.  Kindness is showing goodness, generosity and friendliness. 

Generosity is the act of being unselfish. It is sharing of the plenty that one has been blessed with. When we are generous that does not always mean money. It can be many things to include food, time, and patience. Being Kind through generosity shows the measure of a heart that has no weight in the world and is free from the bonds of self-indulgence. A Godly generous person takes care of others even to the point of just having enough to survive on. A Godly generous person does not desire attention or accolades. The Godly generous person is one attribute of the sheep that Jesus spoke of when He spoke of the sheep and goat.

Showing Goodness and Friendliness is the extension of acts of kindness that go a very long way and helps others pay it forward. One would be surprised how far the chain goes when paying for the car behind you at the drive through. There are times noted where one person started the chain at breakfast and the next ten cars did the same. It would have probably been longer but the eleventh car was the last in the line at the time.

Sharing even the simplest smile or kind word can be an act of generosity even when the person speaking or smiling is really not having a good day. It helps everyone involved. Asking a person how their day is going could make all the difference in the person for the rest of the day.

So just like kids at lunch sharing their grapes or other foods, adults can learn to be just as generous in everything they do. It starts at home. The generous parent teaches the child to do the same. Are you generous?
