Gifts of Character – Charity

My reflection today is on the Virtue / Character of Charity. Charity is about viewing others with a generous heart, one that is caring about their needs. We give our time and treasures without judgment and with the benefit of the doubt. We are careful also to care for our personal needs, giving what we are able and allowing others and the Universe to lend a helping hand.

Today as I reflect on the virtue of charity, no matter who I am or what I accomplish, there is no success in purpose without sharing and practicing charitable acts. Charity begins with our heart, so we view others with compassion and help even those we do not know. I balance giving others room for mistakes with knowing that each person makes their own choices. Charity makes my life a blessing.
