Thinx 70: Do no harm

The world says, "do no harm" which in the main means "do nothing, good or otherwise." It can even be taken as far as "live and let die", which may be what people are thinking when they stand idly by and watch others get mugged, raped or murdered.

Far better is the commandment in Romans 13:10:
Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law. 
There is something that is better than inactivity: selfless love, seeking the best for the neighbour; non-random, deliberately planned and executed actions of beauty, kindness and compassion.
