Believe in and hope for redemption. Support opportunities to give people another chance. Be patient and show empathy.

Redemption, alone, implies judgment and condemnation, and at times it manifests only one side of divine judgment. At the same time, in most belief systems, such as Islam, Christianity, Judaism, and even in Buddhism, there is the notion that the world is continuously evolving towards a state of perfection.

If there is a divine standard, and all of creation is continuously learning and progressing to achieve it, how much more empathetic should be be to those who fall short in their attempt?

How can you exercise redemption as a principle in your daily life?
