To all Men: Charity

 

Really before I even get started, all men includes all woman all children all every person….

 

Charity…  Here are a few definitions for the word…

 

1.

generous actions or donations to aid the poor, ill, or helpless: to devote one’s life to charity.

 

2.

something given to a person or persons in need; alms: She asked for work, not charity.

 

3.

a charitable act or work.

 

4.

a charitable fund, foundation, or institution: He left his estate to a charity.

 

5.

benevolent feeling, esp. toward those in need or in disfavor: She looked so poor that we fed her out of charity.

 

6.

leniency in judging others; forbearance: She was inclined to view our selfish behavior with charity.

 

7.

Christian love; agape.

 

It is number 7 that we really need to look at, to treat all with Love… Charity…

 

We are called to treat each other with respect, and above all Charity… AGAPE… Love…

 

The other forms of the word charity are all part of it, but with out the last one, it is not charity any longer, but rather it turns in to an act of pity, an act of unjust kindness, we need to love all and in that love we will act justly and with true charity.

 

So start today, and show charity to all you meet, show then love and concern, kindness and respect, in doing so you will have shown them charity.
