Charity is expecting the best of each other

“Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quite.

Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weakness, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resiting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped.

Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us.

Charity is expecting the best of each other”

Wisdom from Mother Teresa

“These are the few ways we can practice humility:

To speak as little as possible of one’s self.

To mind one’s own business.

Not to want to manage other people’s affairs.

To avoid curiosity.

To accept contradictions and correction cheerfully.

To pass over the mistakes of others.

To accept insults and injuries.

To accept being slighted, forgotten and disliked.

To be kind and gentle even under provocation.

Never to stand on one’s dignity.

To choose always the hardest.”

~Mother Teresa~
