How to see self & others: not as better/worse, but as individuals w/ different circumstances and growing places, in many areas. We can observe, learn, & serve.
- We should care for the well-being of others. Just as God cares for everyone's well-being (now and after this life: we have to have the big perspective).
- We are often tempted to compare ourselves with others, or others to each other, to determine worth, goodness, etc., but that is not helpful.
- Scriptures on how to treat other people include...
- Discussing clothing *and* media content & behavior, especially immodesty, violence, dishonesty, all non-overt messages, and nudity/porn.
- Every person is a beautiful person! (including you! )
- One way to see each person is as a set of past experiences, decisions, and immense potential (child of God).
- Each person has hopes, dreams, & fears. One can observe their position in the various growth areas of life (or not bother to), and be kind.
- When we see faults in self or others, remember that you can usually learn from others and others usually can learn from you. In that sense we are all equals.
- Doing good for others, serving them, brings happiness -- it is like magic.
- The longer you live, the more you will realize that *many* of those you meet have serious, heavy problems they are dealing with . Be kind.
- It is gracious (Christlike perhaps), to receive criticism and suggestions humbly, and to ask permission before giving them
- We should certainly love everyone we see: regardless of their current state: they have literally divine potential, might become a God, so show some respect.
- (%%todo: see/add notes re humor, from elsewhere.... And not taking self too seriously! humor and cheerfulness matter)
