• There are people who are worth the time and effort to spend time on, whilst others are boring and self obsessed.
  • Depends on the person. It is very difficult, for me, to invest time in to friends because I have 2 teenagers and 1 pre teen. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 teaches us that there is a time for every activity under the heavens. Unfortunately, I have a tendency to dedicate too much time to things that I shouldn’t. My goal is to improve on my time management skills.
  • Now I do, but I didn't when I was a single parent with two or three jobs. And yes, I really care about others and I know many at my Church that do as well.
  • Yes, definitely. And it's time well spent when it a person or people that you enjoy and they enjoy you.
  • It is like when you see someone coming to the light you help them, but if light is shown them and they want to remain in darkness why help them?
    • Linda Joy
      For the same reason God causes it to rain on the just and the unjust. For the same reason Jesus died for sinners as well as saints.
  • I feel like most just like to be needed.
  • That's what getting along in this world is all about
  • We are conditioned to believe that focusing on yourself is the ultimate path to mental peace and health. Contrary to the popular preach circulating on social media, when you care for others and be a little empathetic, it goes a long way for your peace of mind.
  • It's complicated, but simple. I tend to offer help to strangers who appear to need it. If it's someone I know, then I've probably helped them before. Any second helping of help is predicated on how helpful the first helping of help helped. LOL
  • People have always been more important to me than things. In our voracious consuming society many hearts are starving for deep human connection.
  • Yes, 1 Thessalonians 5:11 instructs Christians to encourage one another. It is something that is important for our mental and overall health, as well as to others. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 "Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."
  • I have the time for listening and spending time with the right people. When I say the right people, I mean the genuinely caring kind and there is not much of them around these days. There are people who are brainwashed to be insensitive and uncaring to the emotions of others because they have allowed some people to mess with their mind. Stay away from these people because they have serious social and emotional problems. I like to show I truly care for someone who has time to spend with me the same way I would do for them. That’s where mutual respect happens. I am selective with the right people who are caring and who have empathy. Anyone who is the opposite, I don’t bother with them when it’s obvious they have problems and can be depressing to be around with. Those who pretend to care, don’t bother with them. You’re better off with genuinely nice and caring people. It’s a matter of finding them. Get to know someone first so as to know if they are caring or not.
