Is there ever such a thing as a truly selfless act? Even when we do something kind for someone, we feel good about our generosity, meaning that both parties gain. It is more blessed to give than to receive.

Does this reality diminish the value of kind deeds? Does it lend more value to kind deeds, since they are mutually beneficial? I think that it is almost always easier to avoid helping others out. Even if we feel good about giving money to the poor, we would likely benefit from the money if we were to keep it. I think the only gifts of any real value are the ones that require sacrifice on the part of the giver. Sorry if there doesn’t seem to be any real point or conclusion here. This is just what I have been thinking about today. Hope all is well.

Grace and Peace
