In 100 Words: Rewards of Generosity and Kindness

Thursday, December 15th, 2016 by Troy Schrock

How often do we take the time to really notice the people around us? Not simply a casual glance and recognition but the attentive and genuine interest in their well-being that leads us to act with generosity and kindness toward their needs and desires.

If you are like me, the answer is not frequently enough. But why not? What am I giving up? Every time I care enough to serve someone else I realize double joy – the expressions of gratitude of the person I help and then the deep, internal satisfaction I experience as a result. These are worthwhile rewards.
