What is Charity?

14 January 2010

Charity is sharing some of our good fortune with those who are suffering and in need. Sadly, some cynical people regard charity as a financial option, tax deduction, or burden, rather than a moral obligation and opportunity to be humane. These people conveniently forget that their good fortune is mostly luck, and that their lives could have been much worse. So let’s count our blessings, and share some of our blessings with those in need. Charity is a measure of our humanity.
