Treat others like you want to be treated…
We all hear this and know this but are we able to naturally do this or does it take some work on our part?
We want to be recognized for who we are and like to be known for what we do.
That is natural pride and ownership of our actions.
We come to expect others to know what or “who” we are.
Now please think about this with me for a moment...
When was the last time you looked a service worker, like a cleaning person, yard person, or fast-food clerk directly in the eye and said a heartfelt, honest thank you?
Did you know that football great Kurt Warner worked overnights in a grocery store stocking shelves to feed his family? Or that basketball legend Larry Bird worked on the city trash truck with his dad to help his family make ends meet?
We never know who we are encountering, or truly why they seem to be in a “dead end” job, so it’s a good idea to treat others with the same kindness and recognition that we want…
Check your experience…
“See to it that your relationship with Him is right, and great events will come to pass for you and countless others.” Big Book pg 164
Lord, let us look to be a friend to those around us, giving them the same grace that you so readily give to us, AMEN.
“Agree with one another. Don’t be proud. Be willing to be a friend of people who aren’t considered important. Don’t think that you are better than others.” Romans 12:16
Have a blessed day y’all!
