30 June - Quotidian Quotations

We saw the quote below in action, when we went to Guatemala on a trip with a child sponsorship organization. It became remarkably easy to tell which families had caring, thoughtful parents and which ones did not, even before we met them.

Every time we drove into a family's yard, we observed the animals (and there were always some). If the adults and children ignored them or treated them carelessly, we could expect the same behaviour with other people. However, if the family obviously cared for the animals as pets, showing them affection and considering them as creatures with their own, God-given dignity, then we could expect them to treat people in such a way, too.

Here's today's quote, from the Bible's wisdom literature:

"Good people are good to their animals;
the "good-hearted" bad people kick and abuse them."

- Proverbs 12:10
