Consideration: An Opinion Obtained by Reflection
A personal account:
I think that consideration is a most important and valuable virtue, that brings us further along the path of fulfillment on our journey of life, than any other virtue in the world.
When we give careful consideration to things, we are taking full responsibility, to what may consist either in a benefit or a loss falling upon the other. In consideration, we leave no one out of our decision making, while holding on to their importance and value - Which leaves them with a healthy and secure sense of belonging.
When we consider the smallest things, we bring about intelligent choices to preview the whole picture; to what we may have not noticed, before taking valuable consideration of a particular situation - We are more likely to make the best decision that will have the most beneficial results for everyone in the end.
In consideration, we not only give importance to everyone; we look at every institution more intelligently with clarity, that usually unveils any (associated) problems that may have laid hidden underneath. We respond differently than we would have. We respond with understanding and love.
Consider the Source, by reflection. We are fulfilled even when others (at times) do not consider us. Be glad that your opinion was obtained by reflection.
For in the end it is only the Glory of God, who considers what we have done.
"The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another."Thomas Merton
