From the film that we have watched I was able to realize that helping others will
have a great impact in their lives and also ours. The film was short but it was enough to
show different scenarios which manifest the act of helping and generosity. The image of
God was shown in every person in the said short film. Every person who was helped by
another is at the same time helped someone else to return the favor.

I was really touched by the film and I found it really heart-warming that the people
who received a kind gesture from someone, in return gave it back to someone else. The
film represents how we should treat others. Just like a command based on words of
Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount : All things whatsoever ye would that men should do
to you, do ye even so to them. The Mosaic law contains a parallel commandment:
Whatever is hurtful to you, do not do to any other person. It simply means that, do
unto others as you would have them do unto you. And we should also not do things that
we dont want our neighbors to do to us. We should build a society wherein people
continuously give help to one another because that is one way to demonstrate our love
for our neighbors, through doing simple acts of generosity and love, integrating the
image of God.

In the video, I can see myself as the girl who gave a flower to the lonely woman
sitting alone in a restaurant. She was able to help lonely woman by putting a smile on
her face and by simply cheering her up. Im like that girl, who constantly makes other
people happy because I look into life in a optimistic. Having that positive outlook in life, I
am able to share my blessings by doing simple acts of compassion and love to other

people. When we make everyone happy and content with who they are, what they have,
and what they can be, that is love. Loving is accepting who you are and who they are.
Loving is serving others with full dedication and joy, without complaints and regrets.

To love is to serve lovingly our brothers and sisters, especially those who are in need
in our midst. By serving others one expresses his/ her authentic love to God. There are
a lot of ways of showing our love for God and others, we dont need to go out and look
further. Our neighbor is the person near you and those whom you have not yet met.
When you do things out of love, then you will glow and last. The main enemy of love is
narcissism. When you are so engrossed with yourself, the ego becomes the center of
your life. Then you can no longer see others and God. Narcissism is the love of self,
and that destroys the concept of love. For love of self, it traps and cages the person.
You are not willing to let go as you like to control people, even God.

The short film made me realize a lot of things. It showed how we can change
to world for the better. We should not neglect to do good things because they bring
pleasure in Gods eyes. As said in the quotation shown in the film; Give and it will be
given to you which tells that if we become good brothers or sisters to our neighbors, we
will in return receive or get back what we have given them. One should not give being
dependent on the idea of receiving something back because that is not what God has
instilled in us. We should love others as God has shown His unconditional love for us
because it is one way of showing our faith towards Him.
