The esteemed and wonderful Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is quoted saying, “Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness.” Likewise, Richard Dawkins agrees asserting, “Let us try to teach generosity and altruism, because we are born selfish.” Whether or not you agree, science has proven this to be true blowing the idea of “tabula rasa” out of the water. The recently published work by Stanford University Professor, Dr. Paul Bloom, thoroughly explores the ideas expressed by Richard Dawkins.
Thinkers, scientists, truth seekers, and other leaders have both believed in and taught the value of caring throughout the course of human history. It’s no secret that some of us are just born with an innate desire to help others. It’s what has kept the human race going and it’s what will propel the human race into the future. Selfless giving is undeniably valued, but let’s face it: It’s not common. While using one’s free time to help someone else is not always an easy feat, it is undoubtedly, incredibly worthwhile. We’ve all been told the old proverb, “it’s better to give than receive.” The famous saying is a modern adaptation of the bible verse taken from the book of Acts. The original quote is, “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” This bible verse sheds light on an important but rarely described attribute of giving. While altruism is usually described as moral and good, it’s not commonly discussed as hard work; nevertheless, it is.
