The number of needs that you have to fulfill and income that is all mediocre is indeed a logical reason to doubt giving alms. You just haven’t enough, why should you think of something else? However, after you read the reasons below, I hope you know that mediocre income is no reason to give alms. In the meantime, if you want to join an event which involves charity, we recommend you to check out a charity run which is organized by Daniel Ballerini.
With a mediocre salary, you should know how it feels to be ‘deficient’. Don’t you want to help those who can’t eat?
Having a mediocre salary is completely wrong. You want this and that often doesn’t work because it’s covered by other needs. Eating simple, traveling must be postponed until later there is more money. With that mediocre salary, maybe you know what it’s like to live in a shortage. Isn’t it bad if we want something but can’t reach it because there is no money? Now, don’t you want to help those who are less fortunate than you, who want to eat but can’t because nobody is eaten?
After all, charity doesn’t have to be millions. When waiting to become richer, when will you do it?
You reason that the alms will later because now you alone are still lacking. If you are already well off and there are no more needs waiting to be fulfilled, then you will give as much charity as possible. However, you may forget that our future can never be predicted. As human beings, we must be optimistic and try to become rich people. But if you wait for that moment to arrive, when will you start doing it? Can be another year, two years, ten years, or even never. You forget that charity doesn’t have to be millions. You don’t have to build a school or give hundreds of tons of basic food donations. Just a thousand or two of your ribs can help.
