Let our hearts and hands be stretched out in compassion toward others, for everyone is walking his or her own difficult path. As disciples of Jesus Christ, our Master, we are called to support and heal rather than condemn. We are commanded “to mourn with those that mourn” and “comfort those that stand in need of comfort.”
It is unworthy of us as Christians to think that those who suffer deserve their suffering. Easter Sunday is a good day to remember that our Savior willingly took upon Himself the pain and sickness and suffering of us all—even those of us who appear to deserve our suffering.
In the book of Proverbs we read that “a friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Let us love at all times. And let us especially be there for our brothers and sisters during times of adversity.
My son, beware of anything beyond these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh.Author: Ecclesiastes 12:12 ESV, Source: http://www.gnpcb.org/esv/search/?q=Ecclesiastes+12%3A12

The sects that exist in the United States are innumerable. They all differ in respect to the worship which is due to the Creator, but they agree in respect to the duties which are due from man to man. Each sect adores the Deity in its own peculiar manner, but all sects preach the same moral law in the name of God.... The revolutionists of America are obliged to profess an ostensible respect for Christian morality and equity, which does not permit them to violate wantonly the laws that oppose their designs.... Thus, while the law permits the Americans to do what they please, religion prevents them from conceiving and forbids them to commit, what is rash or unjust.Author: Alexis de Tocqueville, Source: Unknown
God is much grander than even many Christians allow. The universe is vaster, more intricate, more mind-boggling and complex and a more exciting place than is found in the confining strictures of biblical literalism that insist – quite unnecessarily - that the earth was created in six 24-hour days.Author: Michael Otterson, Source: http://newsweek.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/michael_otterson/20...
My religion not only allows for but encourages a cosmic view. Its scriptures teach that there are worlds without number, that many of those worlds are inhabited, and that as worlds pass away, others come into being as part of God’s grand design for the immortality and eternal life of man.
Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.Author: Colossians 4:6 (ESV), Source: http://www.gnpcb.org/esv/search/?q=col%204%3A6
