On Sunday I attended a class discussion about charity. I learned a couple of really important things: charity is a gift. We know that, but I think that sometimes we believe (at least, I do) that we can develop charity just by practicing it. But it is truly a gift - a gift bestowed on us even though we are undeserving. I think often we think that having charity is a gift we give to others ... But in reality, even though charity on our part helps others, charity is something that heals us, protects us, purifies us. A very wise comment was made and it went something like this: there are people in this world that are just plain mean. Honestly mean. When we are treated poorly by a person like that, but are able to bind our tongues and even feel peace in our hearts, that is a gift from a loving Heavenly Father - a gift that can be bestowed by our asking for it in prayer.
