Experience: How I Saw a Beggar Giving a Mad Man Money


Giving they say is better than receiving. For it's more blessed to give than to receive, says the good old book. What is this giving if I may? This is an act of showing charity, love or even pity to people by providing those things that they need for survival. People give on a daily basis, they give alms, shelter, food and what have you.

Giving is not segregated to one class only, but to both the rich and the poor, which brings me to what I want to talk bout today. Most people think they must be as wealthy as Dangote before they can give. This is an error. You can give no matter the class you're in. A few days ago I was walking by the road side, coming from the local government headquarters in my state and I saw the most shocking thing in my life. A beggar who was coming towards me was wheeling his wife (I'm quessing) in a wheel chair, brought out five naira notes two of it and gave to a mad man who was sitting by the side, with a smile on his face. This mad man didn't ask for money, he was just sitting mumbling gibberish to himself when the beggar gave him these notes.

Nothing is too small or too big to give, either to a stranger on the road side, to a close family or just an acquaintance. You don't know who your giving has saved, or the number of people who it'll bring smiles to their faces. "Give and it shall be given unto you, good measure pressed down and shaken together and running over shall men give unto your bosom, for with the same measure you mete out, so shall men give unto you".
