Should it be expected or rewarded?
How can we teach our children about responsibility? Do we reward them? Bribe them to be responsible? Do we give them treats for doing the right thing, or do we teach them to do the right thing BECAUSE it is the right thing?
Somehow I think it's the latter. If it weren't then those who ae giving of themselves to load sandbags in floods or clean up the debris field in Joplin would be asking for money, woudln't they?
So maybe this does prove it. Prove what you may ask?
Virtue is its own reward.
