“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
These lines truly depict the significance of charity, fulfilling the needs of those who need your help. Small deeds of kindness do make your life worth living. Having luxurious houses, shining cars and sparkly diamonds and gold do not grant you inner satisfaction and content, you can spend millions on these things and yet you won’t find your inner peace.
Giving is the only act in this regard that is proved to be providing peace to the soul. It is quite true that “Charity benefits more the Giver than the receiver,” as the more you give, the more you pave yours to the eternal state of contend.
