Very right but not so kind ...

It seems the universal best practice is to be kind even when we feel like (angrily) asserting what is right ... Wayne Dyer suggests: "If you can be right or you can be kind, choose kind." That seems to have a more profound meaning when we believe that we are all meant to be instruments of giving - of kindness ... Though perhaps when there is more at stake, it may be fine to be unkind - just be right. For instance, when a Senator DS angrily points out wrong being done, in the hope of exposing it toward stopping it ... This seems to be an exception. What do you think?

Even Jesus got angry when he show that the temple of YHW was being desecrated. What "If you can be right or you can be kind, choose kind" is asking us is to turn or blind side to whatever is wrong if it will hurt another person. But sometimes being kind in situations when wrong is being done could bring more bad news in the long run.

These words convey a deep and excellent meaning.Wayne was right when he said choose kindness over being right.What he meant was instead of asserting what we feel is right we ought to be a bit kind by allowing the other to have his way over small matters.As far as a lawmaker goes he has to fight for the right as many will be effected if we allow wrong to continue.
