Good Morning Brilliant and Excellent People,
I look forward to sharing with you Brilliant and Excellent tips for attaining your goals and fulfilling your Purpose.
Today, I will like to share a thought on the word Charity.
I attended a function some years ago. Since there was no adequate parking space or provision, we all had to find where to park our cars. While leaving the party, I was struggling to give the guard who was securing the environment a tip of #200. While still contemplating on giving him the cash, the two vehicles ahead of me handed him a tip of #1000 each. The question is, do they value their car more than I value mine? Do they place more value on the guard or the services he rendered? Do I have the habit of giving?
A common definition of charity is the voluntary giving of help, typically in the form of money or materials for those in need. Today, many individuals and organisations engage in charity for other selfish motives and also make a big deal of informing the public of their donations.
The saying “Charity begins at home” clearly means that comments and feedback about giving and charity from those connected to us such as relatives and domestic staff should be positive rather than making a show of public donation for other selfish motive.The act of giving is to be taught early and the habit should be developed at an early stage.
Decide to engage engage in the practice of giving and also offer to render voluntary services when required.
Do have a great week ahead.
