Magnanimous

Word of the day –

magnanimous

[mag-nanuh-muh s]- adjective
1. generous in forgiving an insult or injury; free from petty resentfulness or vindictiveness: “to be magnanimous toward one’s enemies.”
2. high-minded; noble: “a just and magnanimous ruler.”
3. proceeding from or revealing generosity or nobility of mind, character,etc.: “a magnanimous gesture of forgiveness.”


Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be described by others as magnanimous? It only requires due diligence, and a commited effort to do the right thing in all circumstances. A life befitting the label brightens the hearts of the saddened, lifts the spirits of the downhearted, and softens the defenses of the wounded. May you be a light in our dark world, and be called … magnanimous.
