Charity – Share The Joy
By: Christopher J. Charles, Esq.
Charity may be the last think on your mind. The media is reporting that more than 60% of Americans believe that 2021 was the worst year of their lives. Many people are hurting; yet we have become more isolated than ever before. Most agree that charity and generosity are good things; indeed, charity is a virtue and worthy of our pursuit. The late author C.S. Lewis says this about charity: “I do not believe one can settle how much we ought to give. I am afraid the only safe rule is to give more than we can spare. In other words, if our expenditure on comforts, luxuries, amusements, etc., is up to the standard common among those with the same income as our own, we are probably giving away too little.
