I know I’m from the gutter (the miry clay), but who I was, who I am and what I will be would not impede me from extending my hands of fellowship to the helpless. Yes, that man you help today can work against you tomorrow.
He may pay evil for good. He may eat you by the foot. Some people are scorpion-covered-with-human-cloth. Even when you try to help them while drowning, they will keep stinging you.
Don’t mind, just smile it off and concentrate on your heart that tells you to keep doing good. That your heart is your best friend because it can never deceive you. Disappointment comes when you put your hope in man, and that is why you don’t have to expect in return from the people you help. When you expect, you are no more helping, but you are doing a trade-by-batter form of business.
My happiness and rewards come when I see the unhappy becomes happy, the hopeless becomes hopeful, the needy become needless, and when I touch a life to put a smile on the face again. Raise someone’s hands today and see where your hands would be. I am nothing but pencil in the hand of MY CREATOR, so who am I not to help my fellow creatures?
Hmm, I smile and nod!
