We all agree we will not kill each other. Right?
We all agree we will not steal each other’s stuff. Right?
We all agree to do our fair share of the work. Right?
We all agree to tell each other the truth. Right?
No matter how virtuous the members of a group, the lowest common denominator becomes the absolute. This might sound hopeless but it’s not. Why? Because people can change.
Our duty is to provide a consistent example of “the right way” coupled with empathy. Helping, teaching and leading those that oppose themselves. Do this with love and humility, knowing that in any given group you could be the lowest common denominator.
But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.Genesis 19:26 KJV
