If you want to aim at heaven you have to create your heaven on earth through charitable acts. There are so many innocent people who are hungry, who are in prison, who are naked , who have no home and who are strangers. To succeed in life you have to use some of your resources for the benefit of these people. You have to put a smile on their face.
Law of attraction
If you have a big heart the Master of the Universe will give you the resources you require to keep your charitable activities going on. When you give, you attract more resources to give out. Through charitable activities we can solve most of the problems the world faces. How do you feel when your neighbour dies of malaria when you have excess resources which can bring malaria under control.
Charity comes from the heart
You cannot force yourself to be charitable as charity comes from the heart. You do not have to be rich in order to be charitable. Charity is sharing the much you have with those who do not have. Charity sometimes involves giving out all what you have. There are cases when people have donated their lives for others to live.
Work of charity starts at home
Do not expect to bring up charitable children when you are a miser and you cannot give anything to anybody. Show a good example of charity to your children through sharing what you have with people with your neighbours and with people who are facing a number of life challenges.
Accumulating excess resources is a sign of greed
There are enough resources in the world for everyone to have enough to use the challenge is there are many greedy people with excessive appetite to accumulate resources. Why should you put on your plate too much food you cannot consume? Why should you accumulate so much wealth which you cannot consume while on earth? Do not cover your greed in pretence that you are accumulating for your children. Remember they were created to succeed in their own right.
