We should be tender with the young. Sympathize with the poor. Be tolerant of the weak. Be helpful to those in need or in trouble. Be compassionate with the aged and the disabled. Be kind at all times. Be respectful even if someone is disrespecting you. Be calm even if someone is antagonizing you. Be patient with others. Be forgiving. Some people want to be treated well, but yet they treat others poorly. How we treat and speak to someone will determine the kind of treatment we may or may not receive in return. I would think most of us would prefer kindness over rudeness, and life would be so much simpler if more people would take the time to think before they act or speak. It only takes one act of kindness from one person to start a chain reaction. If you are not capable of doing any of these things, then you will not be able to Love someone the way they deserve to be loved.
I would take good character any day over worrying about impressing others from the outside. Many people take more time and care of their outward appearance than taking care of their Heart. The Heart is what’s important if you want to have a happy and fulfilled life, and if you want to have someone special to share your life with. Our body gets old with time, but what comes from our Heart never ages. It only gets better with time…….Carol Guajardo
