Advertising is a form of yelling. Now through social media, this “yelling” is practically free. Paid ads also show up on Twitter, Facebook and YouTube. So you don’t have much option as it shows up even if you don’t want to see it. They hope that by getting their info in your screen again and again, you’ll eventually click on their ad one day. That tactic just irritates people and gets in the way of their productivity.
But what if you were to be generous? No, don’t use generosity as a tactic to get you someplace. Rather allow generosity to be a lifestyle. Jesus said “Give and it shall be given to you, pressed down, shaken together and running over.” He also said “Freely you have received, freely give.” Learn to be a giver rather than a taker. Consistently give more than you take.
Maybe you can give your time, efforts, energy, or knowledge. There are a host of other things that you can give. Whatever it is that you give, strive to be known as a giver. That reputation will be the source of great joy in life. Ultimately, you will begin to reap the benefits. But don’t do it for the benefits. Just do it as a lifestyle of generosity. It’s much better than YELLING.
