The instant you hand out some change to a begging person, you’re showing how much you actually don’t care about her. Why so? The answer might make you laugh aloud because of its simplicity. Here you go: If you really cared for this person, you’d do more or less for her. More by sitting beside her, advising her and helping her make something of her life. Less by simply refusing to give her any money because satisfying her request would only help plunge her deeper into her miserable state of being. Has it ever occurred to you that by giving money to a beggar, you’re simply showing how selfish you are? Indeed, handing out money will cause you to feel good about yourself albeit for just an instant before you may even consider how it will benefit the beggar.
