Lend me a hand, I was on my way to a Holy shrine to offer prayers to our deity, hands full of offerings, flowers, fruits, sweets and money for donation.
I did everything to please God . On my way back suddenly I saw two tiny hands before me, asking for money. There was a small girl who wanted to have some milk. I turned and looked back at the shrine where I made the offerings and thought of the idol over there. God has everything, why do we return him ? when there are so many hungry mouths all around us. Why not feed hundreds of starving children, cover their bare bodies, donate money for their education.
Why to spend hundreds on the donation boxes, grand celebrations, costly offerings for the so called status. Have we ever thought of sharing food with a poor child at the roadside tea stall ? And see God in these tiny hands so that next time when you lend a helping hand to a needy person, that place will be the shrine. The person almighty and your help would be the greatest offerings you made and his blessings shall be a path for heaven .
