Moral Values for Children

How often do we measure out great amounts of kindness to those we care about yet very little to those we have a more difficult time getting along with or don't know as well?

我們對自己喜歡的人是否

經常比較友善,而對那些

我們相處不來或不甚相識

的人則較為冷淡呢?

How often do we measure out great amounts of kindness to those we care about yet

We offer a smile and a kind word to a

friend but a cold shoulder to that

annoying classmate. We've got a ready helping hand for a buddy when he needs it, but our schedules are all booked up when the request comes from someone we don't

care about.

We're happy to loan or even give money to a friend in need, but we try

not to see the homeless person on the street corner.

我們會對一位朋友微笑、說些安慰的 好話;但對那位令人討厭的同學則冷 漠相待。 當一個好朋友有需求時,我們隨時準 備好伸出援手;但若是一位我們不那

麼喜歡的人有需求時,我們的行程表

就全被排得滿滿了。 當朋友有需要時,我們會樂意借錢或 甚至資助;但那個在街角的遊民,我 們則會盡量裝作沒看見。

• We offer a smile and a kind word to a friend but a cold shoulder

While there are reasons why giving or helping or treating others equally isn't possible in every situation, very often we're simply falling prey to partiality. Instead of asking ourselves, "Why should I help this person?" or, "Why should I show kindness to this person?" we should be asking, "Why wouldn't I?"

當然,我們有理由不可能在每種情況下

都公平地給予、幫助或對待他人,但更

經常發生的是,我們往往會屈服於「偏

袒」的傾向。我們不該只是自問:「我

為什麼要幫這個人?」或是「我為什麼

要對這個人表示善意?」我們應該自問

的是:「我為何不幫助他呢?」

Though we all seem so different, we're all made from the same stuff, and we all need love, understanding, and acceptance.

雖然我們全都似乎千差萬別,但我們

的內心都一樣,都需要被愛、了解和

接納。
