Never revel in the hardships of others. When those around you stumble and fall do not mock them for their misfortune and troubles. Instead, offer them a kind word. Be their friend in time of need. Try to be a light in the darkness when it would be easier to walk away and let someone else be their rock. Never waste an opportunity to show that you are a follower of Christ.......Margaret Theresa Naughton
