Charity or Unconditional Love
The greatest of all character traits is to acquire pure unconditional love. This trait encompasses feeling empathy, showing compassion, and being nonjudgmental. As we learn to see others and ourselves for our true potential, we become empowered and we empower those around us to not only DO better, but to BE better.
Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.

It’s so easy especially in times of trial to only look at things from our own perspective. We focus on our own pain, justify our irritability and impatience, and overlook our own shortcomings. When we turn inward like this, we often inadvertently hurt others… And that hurt always comes back to us. Turning outward in times of trial allows God to fill us with added strength and hope. The light we share with others inevitably comes back and it can heal even the deepest of wounds.
