Take a Closer Look

To see yourself in someone else’s shoes is the beginning of compassion.

The old man or woman who walks so slowly in front of you was once youthful. Is it anyone you know?

Take a closer look, for someday that will be you.


Do to others as you would have them do to you. Luke 6:31
