The righteous care for the needs of their animals, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel. – Proverbs 12:10

This proverb follows a commonly used literary tool of contrast. To follow in the ways of God (the righteous) causes one to pay attention to the smallest details with care. In a similar way, those who resist the ways of God (the wicked) have no hope of compensating for their hardness of heart. Even acts of kindness won’t cover selfish motives.
