Love in action

Value-Right Conduct

Sub value-Empathy

One night a man came to our house and said, “There is a family with eight children, who have not eaten for days.” I took some food and went to that house. When I finally came to the family, I saw the faces of those little children disfigured by hunger. There was no sorrow or sadness in their faces, just the deep pain of hunger. I gave the rice to the mother. She divided it in two, and went out, carrying half the rice with her.

When she came back, I asked her, “Where did you go?” She gave me this simple answer, “To my neighbors-they are hungry too.”
I was not surprised that she gave–because poor people are generous. But I was surprised that she knew they were hungry.

As a rule, when we are suffering, we are so focused on ourselves we have no time for others.

–Mother Teresa

Learning

True love is when one recognizes and helps a person in distress though he himself is going through difficult times. It is easy to help out people when you have everything, which is a good act. But the most noble act is when one shares whatever little he has when he sees the other person in distress.
