Strength for the Family
“It’s good for families to celebrate the accomplishments of one another because it points out the reality that ‘I am who I am because of my connectedness with you.’ Of course, a job well done is a job well done, and it deserves credit. On the other hand, we have to be careful not to hold up the accomplishments of one child above the accomplishments of the others.” ~Strengthening Your Family: A Catholic Approach to Holiness at Home, Chapter Four: Absolutely Positively
Teamwork. We talk favorably about it, but how often to we really implement it? When we accomplish something really great, do we stop to consider all the people in our lives that made it possible for us to do so, or do we keep all the credit for ourselves. We never do anything on our own; it’s always a result of God’s grace and the people who have enabled us.
Straws for the Crib
Each time you complete a task today, stop to thank God for his grace and for the people in your life he’s sent to enable you to do so.
