Same but yet different.
Two people can be led into the “same situation” (whether good or bad) but their “different attitudes” will determine their altitude and more importantly, “reveal their true self”.
As our Blessed Lord said:
“No good tree bears bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit.
Each tree is recognized by its own fruit. People do not pick figs from thornbushes, or grapes from briers.
A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart.”
“For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.”
“Why do you call Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?” (Luke 6:43 – 46)
