If you had three candies, would you keep them all for yourself? Keep two and give away one? Keep one and give two? Give them all?

Judaism extend to Taoism Interesting to use simple and profound example of "candy" to show between people and "god" behaviors. "Lao tzu" has similar idea that “Sages do not accumulate
The more they assist others, the more they possess
The more they give to others, the more they gain"

Candies versus Food Interesting "give and take" on human nature when speaking about 'candies' which I consider an extra, excess, sweet, dessert and unnecessary item. Does this same judgment of ethics apply when we are talking about the child's nutritional meal of true substance?

From the start candies are not a necessity, and can all be given away. Reply
