Importance of Charity

With what's going on around the world and around us locally, it is important to stop and reflect, and for a change, think about how we can help and be more charitable. What can each of us do to contribute and be more charitable?

Here are some quotes to help start the thinking process:

"They ask thee what they should spend (in charity). Say: Whatever ye spend that is good, is for parents and kindred, And orphans, And those in want, And for wayfarers. And whatever you do that is good, - God knoweth it well." - Quran

"And now abideth faith, hope and charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity (I Corinthians 13:13)." - Bible

"Be charitable and indulgent to everyone but thyself." - Joseph Joubert

"I have come to the conclusion that charity is only charity when you give goods, services or money without personal gain, benefit or recognition of any kind. True charity is anonymous. It begins and ends with yourself." - Jim Pinto

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? And if not now, when?" - Rabbi Hillel

"In faith and hope the world will disagree, but all mankind's concern is charity.." - Alexander the Great

"It doesn't matter what you do if you don't do what matters. If you do what matters it doesn't matter what you do." - Unknown

"True charity is the desire to be useful to others without thought of recompense." - Emanuel Swedenborg

"What you give for the cause of charity in health is gold; what you give in sickness is silver; what you give after death is lead." - Jewish Proverb
