Old proverb, “There is always reward for doing good and retribution for evil; either comes in due time.”

Time is not foreseeable. Reward for doing good should no be expected, yet good is never done in vain. In making and maintaining friendship every possible care should be taken in demonstrating every kindness simply as an act of love.

Any person will render affection in return for kindness, with negative, adverse attitudes being no exception. Thanking cordially is also a good manner of conduct.

Emphasis and sincerity indicate strong beliefs. Should you be impressed and have questions to ask, such should be conducted politely.

Even if you are not able to speak the same language as your friends they understand kindness and friendship and therefore do your best for them.

Although it’s natural to consider oneself clever and wise, care should be taken in considering oneself superior over other creatures, since all are created clever and wise as according to their own nature. Whenever others are met, kindness should be bestowed and these regarded and treated as equals. After reading this I hope you will take care of guests and newcomers in your place of residence.

You should not mind entertaining and tolerating a guest in your home for a while, just as you yourself also like to be invited as a guest by others. Should you have accommodated a person as a guest essentials should be provided by means of a good place to live in, beautiful surroundings, food, beverages and entertainment of every possible kind.

It is your duty to guide and correct others and not to treat others unkindly even if they do not do what you would like them to do. Be kind, hospitable and generous and realize that all deserve to be treated in a dignified manner.

The world is of a passing nature, thus to find a virtuous heart is as much a reward as finding a seeked treasure. You may go out and meet a friend and bring him back as a guest. Your thought should be likened to a clear spring so your conscience may be at ease and practice affection during a person’s stay as well as departure. Be oblivious of any undue criticism of another’s character so as to refrain from partaking in gossip, when dreaming do so joyfully of happy hours spent doing good to others.

Refrain from complaining and arguing as such actions serve no purpose other than upsetting, but find peace and comfort knowing that ultimately there is no need for worry as God has everything under control.

A lavish display is no more impressive than simplicity. Running and walking will still take you along the same path, though longer, or no longer pausing to observe, inasmuch as some fruit are better peeled and others left unpeeled, all according to its own God created purpose.

To have achieved something worthwhile does not imply having accumulated materialistic fortune, neither decrees nor degrees of scholarship, as more achievement is attained without prejudices and snobbishness.

In the Analects Confucius says, “A young man’s duty is to behave well to his parents at home and to his elders abroad, to be cautious in giving promises and punctual in keeping them, to have kindly feelings towards everyone, but to seek the intimacy of the good.” Also, “Where gentlemen set their hearts upon moral force, the commoners set theirs upon the soil.”

Do not ridicule, condemn or appear judgemental with remarks such as referring to actions as being ridiculous, frivolous, common, sentimental, idle, sleepy, unstudious or immoral. Should another pass callous remarks, do not take exception to such foolishness.

Be on the alert to render help and not just to lend a hand, but to give a hand to those both near and far, remembering to value even friends from afar.

Summarily, remembering these memorable words uttered and immortalised by Confucius, “Clever talk and an artificial countenance are seldom found in the conduct of a truly benevolent person.”
