Someone once asked me: why do you talk about the Bahá’í Faith so much?
I asked this person if they were a healthcare professional. They said no.
“When someone tells you about feeling sick, what do you say?”
“I suggest to them things that I know will make them feel better.”
“Why? If you are not a healthcare professional, then it’s not your responsibility.”
“No – but I care about them, and want to share with them something that can potentially make them feel better.”
“You just answered your question.”

Thanks for this – I undersign, and shared it with friends.
Another analogy that occurs to me is if you have a very urgent message to give someone – a potentially life-changing bit of information. You wouldn’t not give that message, or even delay it. You’d give it urgently, even interrupting the person perhaps!
Thank you for commenting and sharing! And great analogy – I agree!
This really hits the nail on the head.
Thank you, Connor!
