WALK IN SOMEONE ELSE’S SHOES

Here’s another post that’s too wonderful not to reblog. I love all of it, especially the following two paragraphs:

“First of all,” he said, “if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view […] until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” –Atticus Finch, “To Kill a Mockingbird.”

When things are bad and we can’t seem to find answers for our problems, we can turn to our Savior, God and be assured that He knows what we’re feeling.  In the meantime, we should be on guard to not judge others, for we haven’t experienced their pain.  We don’t know what they’re suffering, but we can take the time to sit with them – to say “I care,” or “Can I help?”
