Assistant : Assistant, love your neighbor as yourself!
Galatians 5. 13-15:
“ For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”[b] But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another!”
In relation to this word, I thought, “There is no point in planting my feet together and saying that I have a relationship with God if I don’t love my neighbor as myself.”
What is it worth doing everything “just right” as the pastor directs;
What is it worth evangelizing; preaching … and talking to the “four winds” that I am of God;
What is it worth cleaning, organizing and being “handy” in every work, if within me there is no love for others, if within me there are only bad thoughts in regards to others.
If perhaps you are an assistant letting yourself be involved in gossip, by intrigues, or maybe you don’t have this behavior, but love to know about others;
If perhaps you are an extremist or perfectionist person to the point where you mistreat those who don’t have the same level of demand as you have;
If you are always walking around with a serious face towards other colleagues in the Work, grumpy, or “snobby” … know that you are not doing the will of God. The reality is that your relationship with God is far off, because if we do not deal well with who is at our side, which we see, how are we going to love God, which we do not see with our physical eyes?
This matter is very serious and requires from each of us a very deep analysis in regards to our relationship with those who are at our side.
In fact, we only give what we are, and if you are that person that has only given what was explained above …then, you are face to face with your true “me”, which urgently needs to be resolved before it’s too late.
What do you have to say on this matter, do you consider it as something to be evaluated?

God spoke to me through this post and I realised certain things that I need to change. Thank you very much.

I just realised I like gossiping and I have stopped . The person I used to gossip with I know only speak word of faith. I was a pure hypocrite.
