On a train ride to visit her family, a woman and her husband booked tickets together. But when they boarded the train, they saw that a woman had been sitting in one of their seats. The husband motioned for his wife to sit down next to the woman while he stood for the entire train ride.
He did not ask the woman to move seats. Upon closer examination, he saw that she was physically challenged. Realizing this, the wife understood why her husband did not ask the woman to move. But the train ride was 3 hours long, and she felt sorry for her husband who did not sit. She told him, “I know it was a good deed, but it was such a long ride. You should have asked her for the seat.”
He replied, “She has been inconvenienced her entire life. For me, it was a mere three hours.”
We can ease the pain of others by being kind. It may be inconvenient, but it is just for a short time. How lucky are we to be able to offer that sort of help, that kind of love?
