What goes around comes around.
We are all blessed with different talents and different ways to express a helping hand. Some of us are selfish. All of the time! The ones who are greedy or mean look to be doing better than the ones who give their time to volunteer projects, donating money to good causes. But in the end we get what we sow. Meaning what goes around comes around. Materialistic things mean nothing. Sit down and have a talk with an old person one of these day. Ask them what matters to them.
We should be offering our talents to someone else for free. If we all pitched in and hour here and an hour there we would be developing relations within and around our communities. We never know what will come out of it, the difference we can make. Maybe we could be introduce to some one important. Possibly learn something but if by the extremely possible chance that we get nothing not even a thank you we will have gone out of our way to do some good for someone.
