Help!


If helping makes you happy
go for it with no hesitation
for it is by heart!

but, 
if it is to make you feel proud
Stop it!
do not use other's
misfortune
for your glory!

just a thought: I am always stopped by the thoughts of the negative news and stories about beggars and hitchhikers roaming around the busy streets. Others even have good and funny signs and other have brought me to tears.

Am I too help with the little money and resources I have?

Blessed Sunday everyone!

  5. ParengJJ,
    Helping is a virtue. If we believe strongly in it helping others may help turn our luck for the better. Good write!

  6. God does mot recognize charity in the name of one's own gain. It is as though you have done nothing at all.
    Luckily there are people like you, mahal ko.
    However, we can only do what we can do.
    Like droplets in a pool of water turning to ripples then to giant waves, it takes just a little from many tomake a huge difference.

  7. I love how you reflected on the vice of 'pride' in a reversed order but making it appear dominant. Kindness counts. Thank you for the heartfelt reflections, JJ. =D

  9. Dear JJ: "the right hand should not know what the left is doing" It is good not to boast when doing good for others because then the reward will be in heaven. I think this is very kind of you, you are a very sweet person~

  11. Very wise words Jesus, for us in the west to be able to be benevolent and giving, it is necessary for us to have a large and permanent impoverished underclass to be kind and generous to . Thanks
