Charity

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

.Charity begins

at home with a

benevolent word,

kindness, and

love, for yourself,

and your family.

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe,
deserve your love and affection.” ~ Buddha

Charity does not begin at home because you are selfish,

it begins at home because that is where

kindliness and love are taught and learned.

The will of God is to be kind, loving, to be patient and tolerant,

to be forgiving and to make this world a better place for all to live in.

Charity is not just alms for the poor;

you cannot buy your way into Heaven.

Charity is a positive attitude that allows you to give

the best of yourself to help God’s world.

Needy isn’t always just a lack of money, resources or the physical

need, it can also be an emotional or a spiritual need.

Charity is to feed the body and the soul to help those in need keep

their dignity, improve their self esteem, and allow them to give back

to the world the love and kindness which has been freely

given to them.

Charity is your time and your compassion for others,

and if you have a few alms to donate, do so in a charitable fashion.

Charity is a hand up, not a hand out.

“Teach this triple truth to all: A generous heart,
kind speech, and a life of service and compassion
are the things which renew humanity.”            ~ Buddha

The will of a Higher Power is to renew humanity.

Chose a charitable group that wants your support and one

that offers to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs

of those they are trying to help.

All charitable groups must have a statement of purpose.

Read the groups mission statement and see that it agrees

with the will of your Higher Power.

Learn the history of the organization you wish to support

and know that their actions support the intentions of their

mission statement.

Today’s charities number in the thousands and they run

the gambit from mega corporations with high overhead,

well paid executives and slick ad campaigns all the way

down to the local church which manages to provide services

on a shoe string budget operated by volunteers?

Learn to be charitable every day by giving a compliment, a smile,

a kind word or five minutes of your time to get out of yourself and

be of service to God’s world.

Have faith, your Higher Power will help you meet or exceed

your needs.

Today, be charitable; share your faith, your hope, and your

dreams for a better world.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
