The coming week is likely to see many taking advantage of the opportunity to lend support to other individuals, organizations, groups or causes. The rewards for such support, even if not immediate, can be quite remarkable; it is certainly worth the effort and sacrifice. Most will have a very real sense that there is much good to come of generosity in all its forms; those who practice this kind of giving on the home front will find it much easier to make a habit of it in other places as well. Some will make a name for themselves as benefactors, enjoying not only recognition but tangible rewards as well.
It may be difficult for some to look beyond their own circumstances, and this in turn makes it nearly impossible to see any sort of need in another that can be satisfied in a meaningful way. The lesson? Selfishness can turn on the selfish, whereas generosity can lead to gains that even the selfish can value.
