With the hustle and busyness of our day-to-day lives we can so easily forget to take time to care for others. I know for myself that there have been times when I heard that someone I know or work with is having difficulties and my first thought is “I don’t have time to get involved.” When in truth, it would only take a small amount of time to reach out and see how they are and to let them know that I care about them.
The second truth is when I do reach out, not only does the person respond with gratefulness, but I am the one who truly gets the blessing. I encourage you to take the time to care, it is what we are here to do.
“It is an absolute human certainty that no one can know his own beauty or perceive a sense of his own worth until it has been reflected back to him in the mirror of another loving, caring human being.” ~ John Joseph Powell
