Thank you for teaching me generosity

noche buena

Good deeds such as generosity are taught by people around us, by our family, friends, co-workers, pastors and even strangers. Basically, there are two ways an act is taught, by words and living by example.

If we are taught generosity at a young age, it would be a breeze doing it now. But in order for a good deed to flow without any hesitation, one must do it consistently. We still need like-minded people to make us do it again and again.

So, I will give thanks to those people for teaching me the act of generosity, but I will specifically name them here. My parents, sister and brother, my family were my provider when I was in lack during my academic years. My pastor, Philamer Sabarre, for the unequal devotion in giving to people would could not give something back. My previous employers, thank you for accepting me as your employee. Strangers who inspires us to be generous, and even this AirAsia #ThankYou video.

Why am I thanking people for teaching me generosity? Because, it’s a humble thing to do, I could not do it alone in life, and also the Bible in Acts 20:35, Paul says, “It is more blessed to give than to receive”. It’s indeed “more blessed”, I have experienced this true principle first hand, I receive more after I give. Some instantly, others take time.


A supportive and generous family makes me go on with career and life. When you are taken cared of, especially in down moments, makes me humble and make sure I would pass this good deed to others.


Our pastor (left), is truly an inspiration when it comes to giving even to the poorest of the poor. He rubbed that generous spirit on me. Although, I’m still not at par with his generosity, but I will get there.

Generous friends rekindles my dormant generous spirit, thanks to them for encouraging me to give some for these Badjao kids in Iligan City. Surrounding myself with kind-hearted people uplifts my spirit.

Being grateful to our employers should be normal thing to do. Some would frown doing it. Without the entrepreneurs we could not provide food for our family, send our kids to school, and improve our skillset.

On Christmas eve, we gave about 50 noche buena packages, each consists of sliced bread, 1.5 liter of Coke and a lechon chicken. The recipients were our fellow church members who couldn’t afford to have a Christmas dinner and homeless strangers on the streets.

I once read an article about “Thank You Economy”, it was basically about being grateful to everyone, whether a customer or a stranger, and truly thanking them.
