Our ability to help others is one of our greatest gifts to give.
As with all gifts, it should be cared for, protected, and not given away thoughtlessly.
We do not have infinite resources.
We only have so much time, energy, and attention to offer others.
We must, therefore, be careful who we choose to help and in what way.
Not everyone wants or needs our assistance.
Nor will everyone who is in need willingly accept what we have to offer.
Time spent attempting to help someone who either does not want it or does not need it is time not spent helping someone who does.
