The part of our wealth that brings the deepest joy

When the late Mother Teresa of Calcutta visited Los Angeles a few years ago, a physician named Gerald Jampolski heard her speak. He was attracted by the spiritual power that emanated from her, and asked her if it would alright if he accompanied her on her coming tour to Mexico. He told her that whenever he was around her he felt the presence of God.
She replied, ‘Dr. Jampolski, I’m happy for you to join me, but you said you wanted to experience inner peace. Find out how much it costs to fly to Mexico and give that money to feed and clothe someone in need, and you’ll find the inner peace you seek.’
He followed her advice and discovered that she was right.
That portion of our wealth that brings us the deepest joy and lasts the longest is always that which we give away.
