If there is any encouragement in Christ, any consolation from love, any sharing in the Spirit, any compassion and sympathy, make my joy complete: be of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility regard others as better than yourselves. Let each of you look not to your own interests, but to the interests of others.
I long for the days, in the not so distant past, when we had a president who led with compassion, sympathy and love for his country and the people he governed. The lack of empathy, compassion and human kindness displayed by our current president toward the people of Puerto Rico since hurricane Maria is shocking. Everything that he says and does appears to be motivated entirely by conceit, self interest, ambition and greed. It is up to the rest of us to show our love for the people of Puerto Rico by helping in any way we can.
