Love your enemies (and your manager, associates, competitors…)

In Matthew 5:42-44, we reflect upon the verse “love your enemies and bless those who curse you.” When we think of Stewardship within daily life, how we act, or react, it is an area that deserves focus. From a business perspective, I personally find this difficult and challenging! St. Theophan the Recluse provides insight – “Real love is proved by our relationship with our enemies. Not only should slight and incidental annoyances not extinguish our love for others – neither should attacks, persecutions, misfortunes and deprivations, intentionally and maliciously inflicted. We must not only bless people but also do good to them and pray for them!” Something to think about and consider in our daily work.
