We all have a story to tell.  The voices we hear loud and clear.  What about the beggars? Most of the time, we do not care to listen to what they have to tell.

Do we treat all kinds of people equally?  If your answer to this question is always yes, you are probably a saint. If your answer to this is no, you are human.  Our human nature makes us vulnerable to grudges and insensitivity.  But we must remember that saints were once humans.

In our daily walk in life, is almost impossible to have no interaction with other persons.  Different backgrounds and different characters make it difficult for us to treat everybody equally, but it certainly is not impossible.


[one_half]We must let everybody speak and we must listen to all of them as well.  Listening leads to understanding which helps us see every person as a unique and interesting individual, in different packages.

Listening will only be the start.  Treating people is another story.  If you have listened to all men equally but chose only a few to treat right, you have failed to be equal.  Make everybody feel that they belong.  Make everybody feel they are heard.  Treat everybody equally and as an equal.  Good for the world and good for your soul.



Self-Reflection Questions:

  1. How would I show equality in my every dealing?
  2. Can I be equal to difficult persons?
  3. What can I do to influence others treat people equally?
