Truly, life is beyond living for ourselves. Some of us are here today, simply because someone did something good back then. We are, because they are.
From childhood, we’ve had different backgrounds; possibly worse than others and too harsh to bear. And whenever we tell our story to our loved ones, children or siblings, we burst into tears; feeling very remorseful for the bleak and difficult life.
Luckily for some, it is now history. We are forever thankful when we think of how far we have come; either by our own force or somebody’s help. Our history is our testimony, always having that “if” part.
”If it wasn’t for that man, I wouldn’t be here…. He saved me.”
“She was a total stranger to me. I didn’t know her…I mean I have never heard about her. If it wasn’t for her, I don’t know what would have become of my life….”
When an artist gives back to his or her community, and in good faith, we feel good. We feel good because it clearly shows that s/he has a sense of responsibility. And it is a lesson we can all draw.
Some artists pay tuition for needy students at higher education institutions. Some have to some extent paid bills for destitute families. And some have embarked on a number of projects, from building health facilities to making water available in rural areas.
Sorry if this will anger you but I believe it is a fact. Some artists are still in the industry because of us, the fans. It does no harm to give back to the community. And there are people constantly looking for our help out here.
We give today, and we are more blessed tomorrow.
True giving is from the bottom of the heart. We give not only because we have more, or that we no longer need what we have. True giving is far greater than all that. It is denying yourself the chance to enjoy whatever you have with the aim of putting smiles on someone’s face. Scriptural, it is a concept of putting someone’s needs ahead of our own.
Yes, you can make people happy. You can make this world a better place. You have a sense of responsibility. And it all starts now.
All the best.
