Worldly pressures sometimes push us to unleash the selfish sides of ourselves – this is unfortunately a sad reality often seen in our lives. As human beings, we always seek to achieve more in terms of our careers — accumulate more in terms of savings or investments, and gain the best things in this life — day after day. But with these longings, we sometimes end up losing our “human-ness” when it comes to dealing with others. We sometimes lose our sense of enthusiasm in living our lives the way God would want us to live it – a life that is righteous towards others.
“When you breathe in, you are also expected to breathe out” — these words struck me when I heard it from a Sunday Mass homily years back. The presiding priest during that Mass has reminded us that just as how we breathe, we cannot expect to just take and take everything within us. Instead, we are expected to breathe out and share with others the love, care, joy, and opportunities to better their lives continuously.
Let’s take for example, a day-to-day situation in our work life, especially for team leaders — there are a lot of instances — wherein we are given the power to decide on situations that would likely have a direct impact on the lives of our team members. But with this power, just as how they all say it, comes the responsibility to exercise fairness to them in every decision we make. read more from P4 of this week’s Parish Bulletin>>>
