Compassion and kindness

I really can’t bear seeing videos of folk on Facebook “doing good deeds” like handing out clothes or food to the homeless and less fortunate.

Who are they doing it for?  Do they really think that person wants to be splashed all over Social Media?  Maybe all they have left is a little pride and self-respect – which is torn away when they are used in this way!

Please don’t stop giving – don’t stop caring – but do it from the heart.

Show you care via fund raising, which raises awareness and inspires others to do the same.

Do it simply because you care about your fellow man.

Do it because you feel compassion.

Do it because you have a roof over your head and food in your tummy.

Please don’t do it for praise or for “likes” on Facebook – because when you do – you cheapen the act of kindness.

    1. I think what got me this morning was seeing a child give a meal to a homeless man – with the dad recording it! That poor man, being handed a plate of food from a child – I could only imagine his humiliation 😞

      Of course teach your children compassion but also humility.

  1. I agree. I saw that video your talking about with the child giving the meal. I can’t imagine that any person in that much need wants to be on video.

  2. Totally agree. As Muslims we taught that our charity should be so secret that the left hand doesn’t even know what the right hand gave in charity.
