How generous can we afford to be?

From a practical standpoint, how generous can one afford to be in his thoughts toward others—in his expression of mercy and forgiveness? Will the exercise of humility leave one unprotected and disadvantaged? Or is there an inevitable connection between genuine humility and strength? Can it be proved that the more one exercises the former, the greater his strength and dominion and freedom?

Christ Jesus successfully utilized spiritual strength in every situation. If we would find answers to the above questions, we must follow the Master's teachings and demonstrations. He placed no limits on mercy, generosity, or forgiveness. His humility ultimated in full triumph over humanity's foes—sin, sickness, and death.
