Thought for the day, Sunday 25th July

“A rabbi asked his students, “How do you know that night has ended and the day is returning?” One student answered, “Is it when you see an animal in the distance and can tell whether it is a sheep or a dog?” “No,” the rabbi replied. Another student asked, “Is it when you look at a tree in the distance and can tell whether it is a fig or an olive tree?” “No,” replied the rabbi. “It is when you look on the face of any man or woman and see that he or she is your brother or sister. If you cannot do this, no matter what the time, it is still night.””
Jewish tradition, author unknown
