Being Kind and Unselfish Can Be RewardingMy wife has a theory - if you give of your heart unselfishly, without any ulterior motives and without any hidden agendas - God will reward you for your actions.
And you know, I truly believe she is right. I have found that to be true on many occasions. Example - It’s a cold winter’s day and a street person ask you for a dollar to get a cup of coffee. If you give it to him out of absolute kindness and then completely forget about it, something good happens to you shortly after. The things here though, is that you can’t for one micro second remember your act of charity and wonder what it might bring you. For as soon as you do, there is no reward.
I have done some unselfish acts in the past (and I am not trying to say that I am a philanthropist) and soon after, I find that I win double or triple on a lottery ticket or I get an unexpected gift from someone else. I don’t know if it’s God way to convince us to be kind and charitable but I do know that it is, indeed, a fact.
