Domestic virtues

எந்நன்றி கொன்றார்க்கும் உய்வுண்டாம் உய்வில்லை
செய்ந்நன்றி கொன்ற மகற்கு.

Who every good have killed, may yet destruction flee. Who benefit has killed, that man shall never escape free- Kural 110

Dont ever forget kindness & truth. Wear them like a necklace. Write them on your heart as if on a tablet. Proverbs 3:3

Kindness and grace is what makes our world turn. Today I learnt about the needs of us humans. What we work for; what makes us turn; what makes us do what we do. In progressive order they are physiological needs ( food, water, sleep), safety ( roof over our heads), love and self esteem. When all of thisis met, we reach our full potential news become a wholesome person.

To achieve all of this we are dependant on the kindness of strangers in one way or another, just as someone else is dependant on us to achieve their full potential. The point being, we are always happy when we are a unit, and a kind and gracious unit at that.

So what happens when we forget about the kindness shown to us. What happens when we act selfish and thankless. What happens when we continue to draw on another person’s kindness. Do we expect that to last forever. Sooner or later the person will give up on us and we are the ones losing out because of this. And when a society is thankless, it leads to their destruction. If we can draw some wisdom from the Bible, the thanklessness of the Israelites delayed the actualization of God’s promise.

Let us learn to never forget the kindness of God and men towards us and let us be kind towards all. And in doing this let us make this world a better place 1 act at a time.
