We are a selfish breed. Let’s face it. Even the most kind-hearted people often do things because they will get something in return. Often these thoughts are unconscious, but they are there. Think about it, if you do a favor for a friend, they usually return it. If you donate to charity, you feel good and people respect you for it. If you give money to a beggar, you get the feeling of goodwill from their gracious smile and nod.
There are many people and causes that need help, but they can’t offer any of these good feelings in return. The really noble person will give blindly to someone in need without even the chance of a returning benefit. Are you that person?
