You can use both of these together with people. You can put tiny moments on top of each other to build up a greater relationship or scatter those small bits into lives like embers. They will glow and grow and bring light into the world. Investing in people. What an beautiful concept!
I look at myself and see a savings account. Withdrawals are made often to help those ships and plantations, yet for the most part I sit in the bank accruing the 3 cents a month interest. Every so often, it is noticed the account is dwindling and a portion is added. It is almost enough to keep the account active and open. Although, as I reflect on what a friend shared, I am old enough and have been married long enough to be an endowment. (NOTE: the friend did not call me old!!) I’m still safe in the bank, but I’ve got a special name. The interest is used for the good of the family, yet the principle is never touched. Sometimes when things are really good, deposits are made to help out. More than 80% of the additional investments are from outside donations. I sincerely appreciate those, I’d fall into severe depreciation without them. I truly love fat birds!
