TAKING CARE OF OUR WORKERS As leaders, we cannot be so focused on our ambition, our goals and plans whilst forgetting the personal welfare of our workers, collaborators, staff and members. The role of a leader is that of a shepherd, not just one who leads the team to win trophies but to care for all members, strong and weak as well. A good leader cares for the spiritual, moral and personal needs of his workers. He seeks to help them and heal them. When we look after the welfare of our workers, we become even more productive and we can achieve even more.

THE REAL DEAF AND DUMB The temptation of the Evil One works by raising doubts in our minds with regard to the truths that we hold in our lives. This explains why those of us who do not read the Word of God or keep abreast of the teachings of the Church often raise doubts about the scriptures and the Church’s teaching because our point is based not on the bible or the authoritative teaching of the Church but some opinions of the world. When doubts are raised about our faith without us clarifying it for ourselves, doubts will eventually lead to a weakening of faith.

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
