Charity is doing something for someone you don’t know and expecting nothing in return. (Robert Clancy, inspirational speaker and author)

We should be grateful for the many non-profit charities around the world that serve the under-resourced citizens of their communities. But charity needs to begin closer to home—in the lives of individuals who can provide help needed by someone close by. To do so without looking for recognition and reward is to act with godly love.

Love is patient, love is kind. … it does not boast, it is not proud. … it is not self-seeking. Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13:4-8).
