Our greatest example is Jesus, He provided/provides lasting solutions.

Always being available to those in need, no matter how many times they need you, is a lasting solution.

Comfort can be given to any and all ~ compassion is needed by everyone.

Someday it will be you, teach this to your family.

    It is so good to be aiming toward defeating indifference with compassion. I once read/ heard someone say that the opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. God bless!
