Outdo One Another In Showing Honour

My wife and I have a very good Singaporean friend. She is very kind and generous, and she always wins at one particular ‘sporting’ event—paying for the meal. Almost every time we eat with her, she would beat us to the cashier and pay for our meal. Even if we…

Growing in Genuine Care
