Kindness and showing your heart to another person is always valuable, more precisely it’s priceless. Because sometimes, what we think is trifle can actually be everything for someone else. Doing something good starts all kinds of processes, because good, once its sent out into the world, likes to come back.
The following story is a perfect example.
Howard Kelly was a poor boy, who in order to earn money for school and for a ticket to get there, had to work. He worked as a door-to-door salesman, which sometimes went quite well. But there were days when he didn’t earn a penny. After two days without eating and overcoming shame, he decided to ask the next home for something to eat.
He knocked on the door, and when a young girl opened it, he was struck speechless. It suddenly seemed to him that asking for food is too much. Could I… have a glass of water? – he finally asked hesitantly.
The girl recognized right away that the boy was very hungry. She disappeared for a moment into the house and then brought him a large glass of milk. They boy was filled with new strength – not only because he had a full stomach, but he also had faith in humanity.
How much do I owe you? – he asked despite the fact that he didn’t have a penny.
Nothing! My mom says that kindness is priceless.
