We all want something and our actions seem predestined to be on purpose for “what’s in it for me?”
The magic is that the receiving is in the giving. It isn’t wrong or bad to know that there will be benefit derived from our giving.
Authentic giving comes from putting the receiver first. This can be difficult when we’re constantly reminded to take care of ourselves in order to be of greatest service to others.
The key is to Be good, then Do good, resulting in good things.
