Reap What You Sow (maybe)

But it’s that little qualifier hanging off the end that distinguishes “The Golden Rule (you know, that “do unto others”, etc. stuff) from a self-serving trade-off where one prays like a Pharisee at the Temple in the mistaken certainty of winning a seat in heaven.  Even the Golden Rule should come with a caveat.  It offers no guarantee of a return.

The best intentions in the world, if embraced with the thought of return on investment, degenerate into cynicism in pretty short order.

The trick is to give with no certainty of receiving in kind.  That is the heart and soul of charity.

Why is the obvious logic of this lesson so very difficult for so many to understand?
