I want to write a few sentences today about the previous post, it is supposed to be my own reflection.
If at least 10 or 20 percent of those with substantial incomes decided to donate, say, 5 or 10 percent of their net income to improve the lives of those who really need that help, we as a society could move more quickly toward a more just world, a world where the rich are sensitive to the plight of those who live in poverty.
The author mentioned in the previous post writes that service to others is the raison d’etre of politics and economics. You could say he is a dreamer and an incorrigible optimist.
The pursuit of material wealth, importance, and power without reflection on those in need does not, in my opinion, provide a sense of fulfillment. It is only by recognizing that God is the source of success and financial success that we can move towards serving others.
Of course, the generosity I mentioned would not solve all of humanity’s problems, but the very idea of promoting an attitude of service is worth spreading, because who can help if not the so-called rich?
I think that any successful person whose income is above average can very happily share some of his income, because this charity will lead him to a greater sense of purpose.
Personally, I get the grace to open up to the needs of those who are unwell or in a difficult life situation. I cannot write here what portion of my income I donate to these causes because my right hand is not supposed to know what my left hand is doing.
Humility and service – useful guidelines or values for those who do not fall into pride and do not “trumpet” before themselves what successes they have had.
The main source of wise growth and success is God Himself: He gives the life, intelligence, abilities, and qualities that make it possible to be successful of one kind or another.
Dare to live. It’s YOUR life.
