Giving Back to Society

John Wesley who founded the Methodist Church in the 18th century used this simple rule to teach God’s love. Universally, God’s love is doing good works.

Do all the good you can,

By all the means you can,

In all the ways you can,

In all the places you can,

At all the times you can,

To all the people you can,

As long as ever you can.

By John Wesley

We read so much about rich people giving back to society what they got from society. People like Bill Gates, the richest man of the world, left his company to focus his time for society. He gave away his wealth for important issues like education and health. Warren Buffet invested $31 Billion to his foundation to help society.

Does all these good doings stop with the rich people? Or do we wait to be rich to do good?

In this season of festivities while we are all enjoying ourselves and having fun time with our family and friends, let us stop for a moment to think about the lesser fortunate. Lets spread joy and goodwill and start to give to others.

I read somewhere that running after money is like chasing after the wind. My father always said that “money” has four legs and we only have two and it is hard keeping up with money. But, if you willingly give and give, they will come back to you. Give with your heart.

So while you are working hard earning money out there, spare some time to do some good this season and continue to do so the whole year round. There is never a better time to start than like right now. Start by giving way to a car at a traffic jam, giving up your seat for the elderly in a public transportation, giving your change and a little more in the charity boxes….. in fact you can do a lot more on a daily basis if you are tuned in to giving.

One act of random kindness a day will add up to 365 kind acts you will have done for a full year.
