The greatest gift we can give one another is rapt attention to one another’s existence.
We all want to matter to others. Very often in the past and sometimes in the present, our behavior screams for the attention we seek from others. Perhaps, instead of trying to get attention, we ought to give generously.
Those people close to us and those just passing through our lives have reason to be there from Him. Giving attention to another’s humanity is our calling!
Wisdom of the ages also dictates that in life there are no accidents.
“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”
