Real Charity

True charity is when we give without expecting anything in return. If we expect material benefits, we are bartering! We should not use charity as a way to exercise control over others. Charity is an act that reduces greed and selfishness. It brings joy to both giver and recipient.

We can give many things in addition to $$$. Food for the hungry and clothes for the poor. Time and energy for the friends in need! Part of body like blood and organ for the sake of others! Ultimately, sacrifice own live to saves lives!

Pause and reflect. Are we giving enough or are we just keep on taking. Start now, doing something for your loved ones. Charity begins at home!
