The saints tell us that it is a blessing to be overlooked and unappreciated. It is a blessing to have our motives questioned and our good works criticized. When we give without counting the cost and without expecting anything in return, then our love is purified. We become more like our Heavenly Father who showers blessings on the just and the unjust alike. Also, we realize that the little we give is nothing compared to all that we have received. And we rejoice in knowing that what our hearts most desire – intimacy with God – awaits us in Heaven.
