There are two medicines for all ills: time and silence.
We want to offer encouragement and advice to those that suffer. But often, they need us to only be there, willing to listen. Be patient with them and give them the medicine they need.
The Virtue of Charity
Many view the act of charity as financial aid to the less fortunate. But charity goes beyond gifts of money. We can be charitable in our actions to those who need it. We can lend a helping hand to those who are suffering physically, mentally, and spiritually. How far can a kind smile, a kind word, or a kind act go? Sometimes these gifts go much farther than money.
