Reading through the section on charity, I started to apply the definitions to my personal interactions with various people in my life. Am I suffering long with him? Am I kind to her? Am I patient in this? I found the exercise to be discomforting, as it clearly demonstrated just how far I am from having the type of charity that I should have in my life.
The good news, however, is this is one of those moments in the scriptures where the problem and the solution are presented side by side. Yes, I am deficient in my charity towards others. The solution is to pray with all the intensity of my soul for charity to be given to me as a Divine gift.
