Pay it forward 让爱传出去


Last week we watched a movie: Pay it forward. The teacher of the little protagonist Trevor in the movie left a homework: do something that can change the world. Trevor’s classmates expressed doubts about this. He took this assignment seriously. He really wanted to change the world and make it a better place. In the end, he really did it, saving countless lives. But just when everything was going in a good direction, Trevor was stabbed to death by a knife in order to save his bullied classmates. After watching the movie, I found that many people are asking why kind people don’t get good rewards. If this is the case, why do we still do good deeds? Seeing these comments made me think of a few things Mother Teresa said: People are often unreasonable, illogical and self centered; Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; Be kind anyway. The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow; Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough; Give the world the best you've got anyway. You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and your God; It was never between you and them anyway. Yes, we are kind and do good deeds not for the sake of others, but for our own conscience. We can't expect everyone in the world to understand and treat us kindly. Kindness is not a condition. Kindness is just not wanting to disturb one's conscience. It has nothing to do with whether there is something in return.
