* The generous mindset is always focused on others, not itself. * It says, “Does this person need this money more than I do?” * A generous mindset is always win-win. * A poverty mentality is always focused on itself. * It says, “How can I get the best deal, even if it costs the other person.” * A poverty mindset is always win-lose. * Example - you hire a contractor who needs the work, but you talk him down on all his prices to a point where he’s working for a small hourly wage. * This is having a poverty mindset. * It’s always trying to take everything it can get without the thought of how it affects others. * If you pay him for what he’s worth, even giving a little bit more, you have a generous mindset. * You can tell a person like this by how they stack their plate up at potluck. HA HA! * They typically want to go first and they hit it hard. * Example - the pizza guy delivers a pizza and you leave him a $20 tip because you think, “This $20 means more to him than it does to me.” * That’s the generous mindset. * God wants us to live generously.
