Dec. 20 – Daily Reflection

December 20, 2012


Never look down on anybody unless you are helping him up.

– Jesse Jackson

Lending a helping hand

It is easy to get down on someone when you aren’t in their shoes. Often we throw in our two cents when it is not only unwanted, but also unhelpful and useless. Resist the temptation to waste your breath on pointless criticism at someone else’s expense. Don’t give advice to people unless it is asked for, lest you belittle them and come off looking like a know-it-all. Instead, examine ways you could help that person. Rather than continuously feeling irked by a coworker’s mistakes, could you lend a hand or explain a task to her in a respectful way? You never know when the shoe will be on the other proverbial foot. Help others and one day it might come back to you.

    That is so true, Randy. Putting people down makes some people feel bigger, but, in actual fact they are lower than the people they are putting down.
    Remember what Mother said, ” If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”.
    So true, so true.
