Recently at a Board Meeting at my Church, our cleaning service was on the Agenda to be addressed. We have let things slide for a while and there were some issues we discussed and were wondering how best to handle them. After coming home and going to God in prayer, I began to see things in a clearer light. First, we can acknowledge that they have been with us for a long time and we are so grateful and ask them how is the easiest way to contact them. After looking back over my life at places of employment, it dawned on me the managers that I had that I respected the most were the ones who came to me starting with Love and Gratitude; then telling me about areas that could be improved.
This is true in everything we do in life. When we begin with Love, it is so much easier to communicate. Moving our ego out of the way and telling the truth gets so much more results. Matthew 7:24-25 reads “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fail, because it had its foundation on the rock.” Love and appreciation of others give us that strong foundation.
