In this work I will try to answer a rather urgent question among modern society – “Is it difficult to be merciful”.
Any individual at least once in their life probably got into a situation where the charity was a necessary response to the act of another person, or, in relatively rare cases, take the initiative on the part of virtue. Based on the fact that at the present time to show mercy rather unusual, and sometimes suspicious, even given the fact that it will have no difficulty, I personally problematic until I will make sure in the person whom I do good, so then do not regret about it.
Let’s now imagine the situation. To what has been said in the following sentences, it is worth noting that I am skeptical about alms. You walk down the street on your business, and then a completely unfamiliar man approaches you, imitating the dumbness, while begging in a very artful way – in exchange for a certain icon with a prayer, where the following is attributed: “Please help me, I’m a traveler and I do not have enough money for a bus to my city. ” And how here not to help, right? And like this. The thing is this person was noticed in several cities with an absolutely similar request. Or, on another occasion, an American sheltered a refugee who killed the owner of the family, after which he brutally beat and raped his wife. Do now good to people.
No, I’m not saying that being merciful to people is difficult, on the contrary, it’s very easy in practice. You will not have any difficulty in helping to lift heavy packages to a pregnant woman, transfer across the road a stumbling granny, call an ambulance person who is in trouble. We must do this always. However, I still have to disappoint you with another “but”.
The essence of man is arranged so that he forgets good, and evil can always remember. And if you try to point out to him the good deed that you have done, he will immediately accuse you of reproaching him. This is the nature of man and nothing can be done about it. Unfortunately, due to my stupidity, I stepped on these rakes a few times in my life, for which I regret to this day. Therefore, I always deal with the mind to the question “to whom and how to help in the life situation.” Sometimes, being a materialist is not so bad.
