Gifts of Character – Charity

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Charity. Charity is about giving, in physical and other ways that show caring for others needs. We are helpful and kind, without judging. When we are practicing charity our caring in manifested by giving others the benefit of the doubt and then responding with kindness.

While it is easy to pull out the checkbook, give monetarily and then move on, I want to focus my day on the response to what is needed by others on a deeper level. For me today I want to help bring unity in families and the community by sharing what I have learned about the how we speak to each other. I feel compassion for those who are suffering and my action is to see the pain and talk about the good that I see in every individual. I will give without holding back. The gift of honoring each other creates a circle of love.
