Thoughts about Thoughtfulness

Thoughtfulness observed

My dad watched a fellow passenger in the restroom on a train as he wiped down the lavatory after shaving, leaving it clean for the next person.

In a hospital I saw a young man, wearing a hard hat, using paper towels to wipe the counter after washing up.

Such thoughtfulness impressed my dad. It impresses me too!

Thoughtfulness defined

“. . . do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4).

Thoughtfulness is first an attitude, then a lifestyle.

Thoughtfulness is sensitive to how our words and actions affect others.

Thoughtfulness wants to make life better for others, never harder.

Thoughtfulness makes the world a little less selfish, a little more kind.
