It’s all about sacrifices, being selfless, with the ability to think of others first, even in difficult and painful situations. Altruistic
behaviour is one of the major reasons for choosing a mate.
Developing the concern for the welfare of others while in a difficult circumstances shows a deep understanding of God’s love. . This is a virtue expected from all traditional backgrounds, cultures and even religions. An altruistic person would give without expecting benefits or compensations.
So how altruistic are you?
We are presented situations where our we can show our altruistic personality but many of us do have some second thoughts. We record situations where we were nice to somebody, where we gave our possessions, our services, our assets or even or finances hoping that that will be reciprocated. If the person does not reciprocate, there comes some animosity. “Can you imagine, I did this and that for them and they did not even....”, I am
always there for them but they are never there for me” or they have been taking me for a fool....
All these lamentations do not look like you served the person with one heart. It looks like you served expecting returns and when returns did not arrive, frustrations resulted. Yes, we are mostly expecting to be treated special by others but do we ever have the plan to treat others in a special way?
There is a need of a shift from the culture of receiving to a culture of giving. If you want to believe you are a
Christian and you are emulating the life of Jesus, then as Christians people need to give unconditional love, care and support for those in need. Happiness occur knowing that you served. Christianity is not the belief (which is a brain activity) It’s about actions, a lifestyle that suggest you have the deliverance. Proclaiming the love of God through actions is the best way to showcase your faith
I am a wishing all of you readers a Happy Easter, be a giver today, in your community, in your marriage, in your
family, with your friends, at work, to the country. Be the symbol of Easter, sacrifice yourself to the benefit of others!
