If you’ve had nothing to drink but bitter, trash ridden water, would you drink a bottle of clean spring water when available? I think most would say yes. But still, many of us hang on to bitter emotions when the opportunity to grab hold of compassion for ourselves and others is readily available. It’s a human thing. Also human, are the abilities to learn, to reason, to grow, and to love.
If you have bitter, trash ridden water and fresh spring water, which one will you be serving today?
