Getting to the Heart of the Lesson
Finding ways to be a blessing to others is the best way to avoid doing harm.
The idea of non-injury or harmlessness extends beyond our actions to our words and thoughts as well. We don’t want to burden children with guilt about their thoughts, but we want to offer opportunities to infuse their hearts and minds with thoughts of blessing and peace toward others.
Avoiding harmful actions, words, and thoughts takes a great deal of practice. But our experience of God moves us to make the effort to go beyond our personal hurts and desires and reach out to one another with blessing. The more we fill our hearts and minds with thoughts of blessing and harmlessness, the more light and love and peace there will be in the world.
