Please teach me how to fish
Give a wo/man a fish and they are fed once but teach them how to fish and they will be fed forever.
I have found these two scenarios to be appropriate depending on the person's circumstances. Helping people is multidimensional. You may find it expedient to first feed the person before they can even be taught anything about fending for themselves. At other times however, it may be that they have just enough to keep them going but they need a more sustainable income for the future. Such a person has the ability to comprehend what will be taught.
I think many of us fall in the second category and we are here to learn how to "fish".
Thanks to the teachers in this community who continuously, without hesitation, keep holding people's hands and showing how to make a great catch each and every time.
Do you prefer to give a person a fish (feed them once) not caring so much for their needs and be on your merry way, or take the time to teach them how to fish (feed them "for life") so that they don't go “hungry” again?
I believe the teacher is a giver of good fortune. What do you think?
