What They Do With It

So you give your child a cell phone, and what does she do with it?

She talks to people of whom you don't approve.

So you give the beggar a dollar, and what does he do with it?

He spends it on alcohol and drugs.

So you leave the waitress a generous tip, and what does she do with it?

She buys cigarettes and a lottery ticket.

So you give the government your hard-earned tax dollars and what do they do with it?

They fund programs with which you vehemently disagree.

So what do you do?

You do the right thing. You can't control how people use what they're given. If you know that giving was the right thing to do, then let it go. What happens to it after that is not your concern. Keep doing the right thing.

And then let it go. You did your part.

To whom are going to be generous today?
