Advice for Your Earthly Adventure
Life is full of beautiful dilemmas. Do we scold when our rules are broken, or offer grace for gentle souls determined to prove their worth? Do we admonish modest attempts at greatness when they go against our preconceived standards? The answer is not concrete, but instead … sometimes … and sometimes not.
Sometimes there is no other choice. We must hold fast to our core beliefs and heavenly commandments. But there should always — always — be kindness, humility and benevolence. There should always be shelter for the weary, welcome for lost and struggling souls. And yes, gentle rebuke and forgiveness for those who cross the line in our sand. But remember:
Rebuke the broken rule, but pardon the person and praise every sincere effort.
