    Why Not More Often?

    We so easily spend money for pleasure that is fleeting at best. We give in order to possess or control. We hoard to keep what we don't need for a day that will never come. We wonder why others are so selfish and closed. We seek credit in our good deeds and we expect thanks...

    Kindness Is Contagious.

    Try it out, give it to someone. What is something nice that you could do for a friend, family member or even a stranger today? Once you have thought of it, do it, and then move on to somebody else. Before long you'll start seeing results, try it, it's contagious.

    Letting Go Makes You Wealthier.

    Wealth is never measured by what you have, but by what you can give away. You are rich with money when you can afford to donate. You are rich with love when you can give love freely. You are rich with God when you can behold your enemy with compassion.

    The Closer The Better

    Devotion begins with devotion to family, friends and community . It is easier to proclaim abstract and remote love, then to step into the midst of living and keep an open heart through the thick of it. Be there where you are needed the most.
