“The kindness people have done crosses their path later on, should they stumble, they will find support.”
I believe this reading from Chapter 3 of Wisdom of Ben Sira to be completely true. It is a source of inspiration for me today, and I hope to offer kindness today at every opportunity.
It also reminds me of a wonderful verse of poetry from Alice Cary’s poem Nobility.
“There is nothing so kingly as kindness,
And nothing so royal as truth.”
