A Heart of Generosity
A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. – Proverbs 11:25
At Nate’s, we believe a heart of generosity is the soil from which a meaningful life grows. When we live and give generously, we have the potential to change the world.
We define generosity as an opportunity to go beyond what is expected and give distinctly from the heart. Through our time, talents and treasures, we desire to take what we give and the way we give to the next level, and generosity is one of our Bee Attitudes – not merely a list of inspiring words but a representation of values. These values work to shape our identity, promote alignment, influence goodness, guide our decision-making, and inspire our professional and personal relationships. Here are a few ways we seek to put this into action:
- Our time: We believe one of the greatest gifts we can give someone is our time. Time to hear them, see them, and serve them in a way that is intentional and meaningful. When we give generously of our time, we offer a piece of ourselves that goes beyond monetary value.
- Our talents: We believe God has uniquely gifted each individual with distinct talents to serve our community and His Kingdom. Our talents were never intended to be kept to ourselves but rather used generously toward others. 1 Peter 4:10 states, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace…”
- Our treasures: Nathan Sheets, founder and CEO of Nature Nate’s Honey Co., often says, “Our business is driven by more than the bottom line — we measure success not just by what we achieve, but also by what we contribute.” We’re honored to make a difference both with monetary and product donations, and we share the many blessings that we’ve been given by working to support families and helping communities across the US and beyond. This is why Honey Gives Hope is so important to us. It’s a philosophy that we actively put into practice and a way of giving back that is as pure as our honey.
We are blessed so that we can be a blessing to others. Our heart for generosity will continue to grow as Nature Nate’s grows, and we thank our customers for enabling all we do.
