“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” – Ephesians 4:32
In life it is important to protect yourself against selfishness, foolish pride, unkind thoughts and other negative traits. If you harden yourself against calls for help or pleas for forgiveness, you harden your spirit.
The way to overcome a heartless and indifferent attitude is to approach life with the attitude of Jesus Christ. Do not condemn, instead have understanding and sympathy toward others. A compassionate attitude allows the Spirit of God to work through you and bring you to the realization that only by being a blessing to your fellow man can you receive the love and blessing of God.
Sometimes we are so indifferent to the world around us. Help us, Lord, to support others in neighborly love. Amen.
