There is always Joy in being responsible for the responsibility of the other…
Often in life situations arise where we need to stand and take a stand to say something is right or wrong. The credibility of one and his life can be judged by the way one respond to situations such as these. At times, even when I wanted to be genuine, lack of authenticity in my life personal life can raise questions.
Still, holding responsible posts, if I do not adequately respond to the situations I would be destroying the person/ institution I am entrusted with.
Action: If not capable of doing what you are suppose to, honestly accept and leave the place for a better person to occupy. (Challenging but good for you and the others)
Lk. 16: 19-31
We commit more sins by the act of omission than inclusion.

Our encounter with the Other has to be fresh and new every day, giving a new chance, and new way to act, or having a new mind to experience. The life becomes so rich and meaningful.
For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways (Ps. 91:11)
