''Abraham and Lot started out together in business. Then a problem arose: ‘…Their
possessions were so great that they could not dwell together. And there was
strife between the herdsmen…’ (vv.6-7 NKJV). So Abraham said, ‘Please separate
from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right…’ (v.9 NKJV). There’s
an important lesson here: Just because somebody belonged in your early life,
doesn’t mean they’re supposed to make the whole journey with you. When memories
of the early days of working with somebody are wonderful, it’s difficult to face
the truth that those days are gone and will never return. Does that mean you are
right and they are wrong? No, it just means you each have different destinies.
If you don’t understand that, people who were once the wind beneath your wings
can become a weight that drags you down. Sometimes you outgrow a person’s
gifting and capacity, and no matter how much you try to help or improve them
they won’t get any better. When that happens your prospects are diminished and
your momentum suffers. Some of the people you want in your life shouldn’t be in
it because they don’t share your passion; they have a different calling. If you
learn this sooner rather than later, you’ll save yourself untold heartache.'' – UCB Word for Today, 22/11/12
The devotion of today is kinda blunt…? haha, but i like it. LIKE THIS BLUNTNESS when necessary.
I somehow wanted to send this to my boss.
It is not a bad thing if you have to part your ways. It is a neutral thing, or even a good thing! coz a part of God's beautiful plan in the bigger picture.
