Being Compassionate and Strong

Compassion without strength is weak and strength without compassion is strident.

Cultivate both.

If you are powered by those noble qualities, you possibly can "move mountains" and hopefully, spread joy. Wonderful quote to think about today, Judith. Thanks.

Kelly - I love the idea of spreading joy! It's interesting. Faith moves mountains but faith without works is dead and it takes compassion and strength to do noble honorable work. Thanks for your words which for me includes faith. You are most welcome, Kelly. I am always happy to say anything that matters, anything at all.

This one is food for thought, Judith. I do agree that faith without works is dead. I often urge my friends who complain about money to spend less on themselves and give to charity. You just can't outgive God, I know from experience. Thanks for making me think today!! Blessings!

Marion - Giving is indeed an action and a great one too. I also know the value in giving. "Give and it shall be given unto you pressed down, shaken together, running over shall men give unto you." This is the law of giving. Thank you for that reminder.
