I've learned an important lesson in empathy the past few weeks. My husband and I have been on a journey. A journey towards financial freedom and trying to gain the knowledge and experience to make that happen. We came across a set of books especially enlightening and have tried to tell others about them. And the more we talk about what we've learned, the more we're met with resistance. My husband said we shouldn't discuss what we're doing or what we've learned or try to give out advice anymore. Why I asked. Their financial future is at risk! I didn't catch the parallels to Christianity until my husband asked how would you feel if they said you should read the bible? I should have caught on before as one of the books is titled "The Prophecy" and compares preparing for your future to Noah building his ark.
So, what have I learned? First, shut-up because no one wants to hear it. And second, maybe I should have a little more empathy to those trying to share their beliefs in god. They believe in their hearts they are doing the right thing. And just as I was trying to show people they needed to prepare for their financial future, Christians are trying to show people to prepare for the future they believe will come.
