I sometimes wonder about this strange trait of ours. We see a friend in trouble, we want to help him, but something holds us back. Something makes us ask' can I do anything to help?'...it's almost as if, deep inside, we don't really care or have the time, the question is a formality to which the expected answer is 'no,thanks'.
Next time you see such a situation, why not go ahead and do something that you know will alleviate your friends troubles? I'm definitely going to try it out.(Of course, I always pray that none of them have any problems in the first place.:))
