Thinking About What to Write About in an Essay
posted by Anonymous .
I'm writing an essay about charity (which means "In its widest and highest sense, charity includes love of God as well as love of man. The latter kind of love is so closely connected with, and dependent upon, the former, that neither it nor its fruits, under the Christian dispensation, can be adequately set forth without a brief preliminary glance at the relations existing between the two kinds") in religion. I don't know where to start. If anyone can give me ideas on how to "attack" this topic, please direct me! Here is what I have so far:
1. Mother Teresa as an example of charity - she shows selfless love
I can't think of anything else, literally!
You might examine charity from the point of view of the sacrificing love of parents and grandparents. Also consider those who donate much of their time, energy, and money to their community. In Kalamazoo, MI, a group of benefactors have promised to pay for college educations of all Kalamazoo high school graduates.
You don't have to focus on the big donors. Consider the millions of high school students who donate their time and energy to helping others through their schools and churches. Consider the person who sends a dollar to the local food bank -- the only amount she can afford. Research the "widow's mite" in Google.
