It is a paradox that only the more we give away the more we have. Not in money, perhaps, but certainly in character and self-esteem. When we are thinking of others, we are much less likely to be worrying about ourselves. There’s a double pay off.
True giving asks no return. There is no remembering, no expectation, no greediness for gratitude. And none of us is too poor to give love, respect, attention, encouragement, time, caring, assistance, compassion.
