True Giving Enriches
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
The earnest lesson of life, whether we learn it early or late, is that giving enriches and ennobles the giver first and most of all. As a great artist may enlighten an age, or a hero free millions by his sacrifice, so the humblest or least known of individuals has something to give to the world. It was for that purpose that men were given different talents, to share but not to hoard. The weight of the gift has little to do with it. It is the fact of the giving that counts. Again and again life drives home that lesson, dodge it how men will.
Material gifts draw the greatest attention and often the loudest praise, but they are not, indeed, the most important. A man may beggar himself of his possessions and still have given little or nothing to the world. The giving that has meaning may be found in many things; so slight as a smile or a word of encouragement, so final as a life laid down so that others may live.
