Faith turns out to be enough for a thinker.
Acts turn out to be much more for the doer.
Give a hand in need.
We demand justice when people are selfish,
but cry for mercy when we ourselves stumble?
For a moment’s desire to kiss the sky
a lot of prayers are said on bent knees.
Give yourself daily quiet time.
Concentrate on what you want
and you will get your share, alone, at the top.
Give yourself a new dream.
Engage in helping others
and you will get crowds of thankful people.
Give time for empathy.
A black light bounces off the white specs
while a white light clings to the dark shadows until they fade away.
Give support so others can heal.
It is okay to take when you take time to give.
