If we help everyone except for those who need it most, are we truly being helpful?
It is easy to help people who are easy to help.
It is no great feat to give our assistance or our attention to others when it is convenient to do so, when it requires little of us, and when what we are giving is superficial or insubstantial.
This is not really helpful.
This is not really giving.
If we truly want to be helpful, if we truly want to be generous, there must first be a need.
Additionally, we must also have something to offer.
We must be capable of helping.
It is this intersection of another person’s need and our capability that we will find our unique purpose.
