He said that after living by the most compassionate parts of the Bible, he noticed a change in his thoughts and feelings.
"I had always thought, you know, you change your mind, then you change behavior, but its often the other way around," Jacobs said in his talk. "You change your behavior, then you change your mind. So, you know, if you want to beome more compassionate, you visit sick people in the hospital and you will become more compassionate. You donate money to a cause and you become emotionally involved in that cause."
