The Rule of Generosity

As I put my annual bonus into the charity box, I turned and smiled boastfully to the spirit of wisdom.

 ‘Was that your good deed for the year?’ He asked me. I nodded my yes. ‘And you are proud of your action?’
‘It was a lot of money.’ I beamed.

‘Generosity is not measured by giving out of your surplus,’ the spirit said as he turned to leave. ‘Generosity is measured when you give out of your need.’
