Still on sacrifice, today’s meditation was to allow OTHERS, the space to lead.
I didn’t understand it at first, but I got it. In other words, I think, to sacrifice feelings of defensiveness and allow others to be right.
I don’t always like to be told what to do.
I will let people know what needs to be done, and will complain about not being listened to when things don’t go my way.
I will assume that I have the answers to a situation and will not be comfortable letting others lead.
If you want something done well, do it yourself.
Well, other people can take the strain if I let them.
They have ideas and means and opinions that are important.
Of course they do.
It’s a sacrifice because I have to shut up.
Really shut up and let it happen.
So tonight I’m not going to argue with Peter, or Simon, or Mark, I’m not going to tell them how to deal with this situation, I’m not going to tell God what I need.
I’m going to watch and see if I can help reach the goal.
I’m going to be a team player.
