Does the boy have ulterior motives or is he just a kind soul who gets rewarded? Who knows. Motives aren’t always easy to figure out. All I know is I’ve been rewarded more for kindness than selfishness in my lifetime.
It’s one of those funny paradoxes. The more selfish we are, the more miserable we become. The more generous and kind we are, the more we get rewarded. Let’s go do a kind deed today-whether we are rewarded or not. Of course, I can be bribed with cookies too.
