I’ve often heard that, if you choose to feed birds during the winter, then please, make sure you do it every day. If birds come to rely on your tossed seeds, then they may starve without them.
Is the same true of any kindness? When we spread generosity and friendliness, does it only matter if we continue to do so? Or, if we stop, does it turn into a danger?
The bird may ask, “Why is my food no longer here?” But the person may ask, “Why are they no longer here for me?”
“Did I do something wrong?”
We have choices every day: The best choice we can make is to be kind, even when it’s difficult. We never know how much someone else may rely on that kindness.
