Jeff,

You are right – is it ever enough? If there was a line indicating that you have reached the “limit,” all people would do is the bare minimum (kind of like the student in class that does just enough to pass a class – nothing more and nothing less). I just had a scenario flash in my mind of a person seeing someone in need and saying, “I am sorry, but I have already met my quota for compassion today.”

Bob, thank you for sharing your perspective and the scenario you describe is interesting.

There does come a point (in a day, week, month, year, etc) when we, ourselves, may be spent as humans and can offer no more, even to a person presently in need.

Perhaps a person in that case could say what you describe, yet add one more thing, “Can we meet tomorrow?”

I guess what I was saying was if there was a “line of demarcation” for when you have reached a satisfactory limit, some people would view it as a “to do” list and do no more than required (meeting an objective versus meeting a need). I wasn’t referring to the person who gives and gives and really can’t do any more in that situation or at that specific time. The difference truly is a heart choice – being able to but choosing not to versus someone wanting to being unable to do so at that time.

Bob, thank you for saying the same thing a second time. Sorry it didn’t quite register the first time. Yes, totally agree with what you are saying (and what you said). 🙂
