Applause and laughter erupted when Pope Francis told his South American audience that generosity towards the poor is possible because "you can always add more water to the beans." In fact, generous people always find a way to share with others, even if it means holding back a little on how much they take for themselves. The unnamed Widow of Zarephath was a biblical heroine because she offered the prophet Elijah the last bit of her food during a bitter famine, and God rewarded her generosity. Listen to this uplifting message about how to be a hero for God in your life by becoming a generous person for others.
