The Greatest Charity One of the definitions that Webster’s dictionary gives to the word “charity” is a voluntary giving of help, typically, of money, to those in need. As Masons we are often admonished to perform works of charity. Our Entered Apprentice degree tells us that Freemasonry is founded on this basic principle. Whether it be monetary assistance to a brother in need, assistance in running an errand, or handling a chore around the house. But what could be the greatest act of charity that one can bestow to another? It would not cost time, effort, or money. This act of charity is forgiveness.
We are all human. We error, we sometimes say or do something that others may be offended by. Maybe it was said in jest, or without any thought that what you were saying could be hurtful to another. But we are all guilty at one time or another of offending another through our words or actions. Too many times, I have heard a brother say they will not go to Lodge because they were offended by something someone did or something someone said. But why let this stand in the way of sharing in holding Masonic communication with your brethren? What better way to be charitable to a brother but to simply say “I forgive you”. It does not have to be done openly but simply in your heart. Remember what is said from Psalms 133 during the Entered Apprentice degree “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell in unity.”
