Counting Favors: The Insincere Givers

Counting Favors: The Insincere Givers

There are two types of givers, those that are sincere and those that are insincere. A sincere giver doesn’t care about being acknowledged by anyone for whatever good they have done. They understand that it is our duty as human beings to care and share with each other. Their kindness is fueled by the thought of knowing that this is the right way to live. The insincere giver is one who counts the favors and gifts they offer. Their concept of giving is more like an investment for them, as opposed to an act of kindness. In other words, they only give in order to accumulate interest in return.

Some people only give in exchange for other favors, while some do it for praises and adoration. Regardless of their purpose for giving, they always anticipate a reward for their actions, which is a repulsive nature that is rooted in selfishness, not kindness. The insincere giver is one who wants everyone to know about what they have given. They are also the types that never fail in reminding you of anything they have done in your favor. They never talk much about what others have done for them, only what they have done for others.

This is because they only give in order to cater to their own self-interest. Meaning, their gift to you, in reality, is really a gift to themselves. They profit more from helping you than you have from what they have done for you. Favors from the insincere givers should be treated like a loan that you must repay. If not, they will forever use their favor to you as a catalyst that will only and always demean you.
