The opportunity to give really is an opportunity. Therefore, not only must we train ourselves to say, “It’s a pleasure to help you” — we must also think, “It’s a pleasure to help you.”
An opportunity to help others is a massive opportunity — a gift from the heavens, the secret of our wellbeing — the blessing, goodness and pleasure that enter our lives. It’s a key, a button that opens pipelines of happiness and contentment into our world.
We need almost to be afraid to let such an opportunity pass by. Then, even if we can’t give a full gift, we will give a partial gift. Even if we can’t give a large gift, we will give a small gift. And above all, we will give what we give with a smile, a kind word and a prayer for the well-being of those who receive our gift.
