30 June - Quotidian Quotations
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
