Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength . . . Love your neighbour as yourself (Mark 12 v 30-31)
The quality of the love we offer God, we should also show those around us. Love that is open, sensitive, empathetic, appreciative, intimate, honest, trusting and resilient.
Our clients and colleagues are our neighbours. To serve them as well as we can, means we have to love them. To want the very best for them. To feel a deep sense of responsibility towards them. It’s this sense of responsibility – our capability to respond – that’s the source of the energy we put into loving others.
And in return we also should allow ourselves be loved. After all, it takes two for a relationship to flourish.
This week, what can you do to demonstrate a genuine love and commitment to your colleagues and clients?
