It is way easier to be generous to someone who fits in our lines we draw for integrity.
Meaning, it’s easier to be compassionate to someone we believe is acting in our accordance with our beliefs.
When someone is operating outside of what we believe to be right, then we are much less likely to help them.
The thing is, it isn’t compassion when we are filled with abhorrence. When we are reluctant to help others because they don’t fit into our code of conduct then we are missing out on what it truly means to serve.
It’s easy to act quickly when someone is drowning in a pool. Much harder when someone continues to make mistakes over and over again. Especially when they are inconveniencing us.
