The Greatest Need

"But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?"- Mark Twain

It is easy to offer love and support to someone who is loving. It encourages that person to be a continuing presence in your life. We are rewarded for our actions. If we offer love and support to someone who isn't loving, there is no reward. They will not offer gratitude and we will increase our connection to someone who does not offer kindness. They may laugh at your generosity because they know that you will receive nothing in return. Sometimes, you are responsible for the only act of kindness that a person will experience. People need kindness, not because it encourages them to be a better person, in some cases it doesn't. Kindness makes you realize that life is good and full of possibilities. Everybody should experience moments in life where they realize that this is true.
