That quality is APPRECIATION. I decided to look up the definition- there are 3 that really resonate with me.
gratitude; thankful recognition
clear perception or recognition
a full understanding of a situation
The last definition truly stands out. Listen to it again-a FULL understanding of a situation
People tend to fear what they don’t understand. Fear that goes unchecked can lead to anger, resentment, and even hatred.
With all the fear, hate, and anger that is spilling out all over the world, it would go to reason that creating an appreciation, an understanding-taking time to listen and learn will go a long way to reducing and/or eliminating fear, anger and hatred.
So, as we are out in our communities with our family and friends, I pray and ask the lord for help for all of us, to be willing to take time, to listen, to learn and to understand what we don’t. To create an appreciation for every person, place and thing on this planet.
Make the effort to create quality time to learn and understand not destructive, ineffective time to fear, hate, and destroy.
