Strength comes from charity
A Christian mystic from India, Sadhu Sundar Singh, several years ago wanted to go into Tibet to evangelize. He hired a Tibetan guide to take him over the Himalayas. They had gone but a short distance when they became tired and sat on the snow and ice. Then Singh said, 'I think I hear someone groaning in the abyss.' The Tibetan said: 'Well, what difference does it make? We're almost dead ourselves.' Singh went down, found a man, and dragged him to the base of the Himalayas to a little village. Refreshed by his act of charity, he came back to find the Tibetan guide frozen to death on the ice.
