True Wealth

True wealth comes from giving
without expectation.

  1. True words! I have no expectations when giving of myself, mostly; I’m not thinking of what my efforts may be “earning” me, or even how grateful the recipients will feel. In fact, I try to downplay and diminish the value of my contribution in the eyes of others. “Really, it was no big deal.” Or “truly, my pleasure. Really!”

    It is later, when my own need arises and help is not forthcoming, that my expectations grow. It is resentment, not immediate reciprocity, that destroys my peace of mind, and taints my good works…

    Thanks for this reminder, Eddie!
