Benevolence vs. Selfishness

Benevolence vs. Selfishness

Definition: Giving to others’ basic needs without having as my motive personal reward


* See the needs of others as quickly as I see my own

* Give freely without expecting anything in return

* Not hoard things for myself

* Not profit from the misfortune of others

* Give more as I get more

Week One Activities

(working on ~ seeing the needs of other as quickly as I see my own)

* Encourage the family to help in any way ~ even if it seems small, even if you’re busy doing something else

* Help can be inside or outside the home

* Make a list of things the kiddos can help do around the house ~ teach that their help, benefits themselves and helps mom and dad.
