Charity Begins At Home


Charity means willingness to help others. Helping those who are really in need is a rare and good quality. There are certain people who spend huge sums of money on charitable institutions or on religious functions. One should be generous to ones own family before helping others. For example, certain people spend hours and hours on volunteer work and neglect their helpless dear and near. People generally do such act for gaining fame and name or to impress others. This is highly selfish. One's own family (or country, etc.) comes before any other responsibilities. A person's first obligation should be to help the member of his own family before he can begin thinking of talking about helping others. The right way to cultivate the charitable habit is to start loving one’s kith and kin and gradually extend that love to those outside the family. Such a person can love and sympathise with all those who deserve it. Only that sort of mentality can be called really charitable.
