Daily Lift #916

Have A Compassionate Eye

When you watch other people, what you see depends on what is important to you at the time. A barber will notice styles and quality of haircuts. A tailor will notice clothing. A salesman will notice potential customers. A critical person will notice what is wrong. And a compassionate person will notice opportunities to be compassionate.

Be compassionate. This elevates you greatly.

(From Rabbi Pliskin's book Kindness)
