Compassion isn’t something you pray to have; rather, it’s a virtue that is birthed from your life experiences. If you see a man who gets angry at his wife for being too tired to make dinner after she returned from work, then that man never cooked as a bachelor. Cooking can be really exciting, but sometimes, after going through so much stress working, you’d even prefer to sleep on an empty stomach. I feel bad whenever I see children hawking things on the road, it reminds me of the years I hawked “pure water” (sachet water) to make ends meet. For that reason, if I buy anything from them, I’d deliberately pay with an amount that is more than what I bought and ask them to keep the change. With the change, they could as well take a rest for the whole day.
Nobody is nice or caring, an experience made them so. I’ve taught in classes where married men were my co-teachers; and whenever I teach, you’d see the difference in the countenance of those students. Normally, I should display pride, but I understand what it means to be married. So instead of robbing it on their faces that “I’m the best”, I respect and honour them. Marriage puts serious responsibility on you, some married teachers rarely find time to study for their class. This is why you can’t pray to have positive characters like respect, an experience will naturally give birth to them.
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; THE QUICKEST WAY TO DEVELOP POSITIVE CHARACTERS IS TO WALK WITH THOSE WHO ALREADY HAVE THEM. HE THAT WALKS WITH THE WISE SHALL BE WISE. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
