Nothing in return

Is it just me, but it feels these days as if so many people only do something for others, it they are guaranteed something in return.

When I was growing up there was one person who really grabbed my attention because of what he ‘stood up for’ – Nelson Mandela. That’s probably why I have always appreciated his words on many topics, after all, he willingly ‘gave up’ many years of freedom, all because he wanted to stand up against apartheid.

Yes, there are many who wouldn’t do anything for us unless they are assured of receiving something beneficial to them in return. But do not be that person, instead, live those words of Nelson Mandela’s, by doing all you can to help those who could do with some help, and do not do ii in expectation of anything in return.
