Which Is More Important: Achievement or Compassion?

A study done last year by researchers at Harvard found that the majority of teens value achievement more than compassion. There is no doubt that the connection is related to the constant pressure we all face to be “successful” and to build very impressive resumes. We find ourselves in constant competition with everyone else it seems.

I invite you to read the study and findings here

How much pressure do you feel to ‘achieve’ and have a stacked resume before entering college? How does the gospel of Christ, in which we are called to compassion and lives of sacrificial love and solidarity, speak to us in the midst of our culture?

Comment to share your thoughts, and be honest about the struggle.
