A good reminder for all of us during these times and beyond is to love people. Love people where they are, who they are, and for what they are at all times. This is probably one of the most difficult things we struggle with because emotions are scattered from week to week, month to month, and even year to year. Mark highlights this as one of the most important things we can do for each other in times of need. How do we love people more? It all starts with judgment and grace. We need to judge less, be more understanding, and extend grace to everyone around us. As we all know, we are not perfect but being made in the image of God is powerful and we should all strive to be more like Jesus every day!
Find a Mentor
This applies to everyone. Whether you have a job or not, a mentor is the most influential and steady sources of support you can get. When we apply it across our lives, especially in the workplace, we understand that nothing can be obtained just by ourselves. Find someone who knows more than you and pushes you to be better at your craft. Build a deeper relationship with someone that provides you with greater strength when the times are tough, and less friction when you need to get something done. Mark speaks to the fact that he could have never been as successful as he is without successful people around him helping him. That is our prayer for everyone listening. Find a mentor, trust in them, and start building a more successful YOU!
“We need to love everyone where they are, we can’t judge, we can’t question.. We need to love people and leave the judgment to the Lord.”
