Gifts of Character – Charity

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Charity. Charity is not just about the physical provision for those in need. Charity begins with a caring heart that comes from compassion for those who are suffering. Charity is the desire to make a difference in the life of someone in need without judgment. The attitude of charity blesses our life.

Today I will reflect on my heart and willingness to give generously. I will begin with looking at my caring and giving to those closest to me, my family. Do they feel cared for? Am I responding to their needs as completely as I do with those I do not know? I am practicing compassionate giving at home. Allowing for mistakes and withholding judgments starts with those in our inner circle. I am blessed when I mold my heart to be kind and helpful.
