Worry weighs down the heart, but a kind word gives it joy. -Proverbs 12:25
I might not understand all the worries of those around me, but I can lend a kind ear and try to empathize.
The Virtue of Charity.
Many view charity as financial aid to the less fortunate. But charity goes beyond gifts of money. We can be charitable in our actions to those who need it. We can lend a helping hand to those who are suffering physically, mentally, and spiritually. How far can a kind smile, a kind word, or a kind act go? Sometimes these gifts go much farther than money.
