HAVING A TENDER HEART
A good indicator of quality in a man or woman is how they relate to others. Having a tender heart goes beyond "touchy - feely". Sometimes the Godly course of action will require an individual to "grow up".
Having Godly concern for someone will always involve their assuming responsibility for their actions.
Too often, well intentioned but misguided humanitarian efforts will take responsibility of the individual
and place it on the government or social agencies. This reproduces people who are continually in line for their next handout.
God's way is for the individual to look for guidance from God and diligently work to provide for the family. The irony of the welfare state is that the people it tries to help are actually the ones that are hurt the most.
