A few years ago, I made the decision stop feeling upset or incomplete, for not being able to make huge contributions to the charities I wanted to, for not being hands-on in the construction of habitat, or for not feeding large lines of people on Thanksgiving. I realize that we are all in this planet with a different purpose, and not all charity have to look, like the selfies posted in social media of people surrounded by smiley kids in a poor community of Africa, or Peru, ( not that I don’t have done my share of those pics).
Knowing that “Giving” is fulfilling, I realized, I didn’t have to give the same way others feel it should be done. In reality, the hardest Charity starts at home, within our family and our communities. People are more likely to hide their needs, fearful to be seen weak or less than others, We tend to look into other people’s pain before we face the help needed in our life or circles. In my Gap year 2015-2016 traveling the world, I realized when visiting relatives, friends or meeting new people, there was a huge need, need to be heard, need to be understood, need to feel worthy and need to be loved. I found then the type of charity I can do, and that was helping people, listening, and doing my best to heal their broken souls.
The more people feeling emotionally complete, more chances that they can help others.
I am not denying that the entire world needs help; The Ukranian Orphans, The Syrian Refugees, Haitian kids, Burundi and other African countries, but let’s don’t forget home, each of us, in each country can do our part.
Broken souls end up lost, most lost people end up in a broken family, broken families lead to people out of focus and loss of their job, losing jobs leads to homeless, homeless people suffer from hunger, and hunger, my dear friends, is what we must avoid.
Home for me is North America, and this video is a reality check of where you can start #Giving
Matthew 25:35-40New International Version (NIV)
35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
