My post title today is actually a quote from an early Christian philosopher, Philo of Alexandria The first time I read his thoughts they changed me. Ever since, I have tried to live my life centered on that philosophy of gentle compassion.
A few days ago the wonderful mam posted a video that put me so in mind of the spirit of those quietly challenging words, I just had to share it with all of you…
show mercy and compassion to one another.
Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the alien or the poor.
In your hearts do not think evil of each other.’
