Why do we give?

There was a story that was shared around the office about two neighbors. One was better off than the other. The more financially comfortable neighbor learned that his neighbor and his family were struggling to make ends meet and put food on the table. Like many generous neighbors the wealthier neighbor went over to offer support. He told his neighbor that in the unlocked garage is a freezer filled with food and to please help himself. Days go buy and the hungry neighbor stops by to take a few items from the freezer as offered, consciously not taking more than he knew his family needed. His kind neighbor was not home. So he just went home, closing the garage door behind him. They next day the generous neighbor stops buy with two large grocery bags filled with more frozen food and says, "Don't you ever do that again!"
