In order to have a beloved community, we must have a common unity – TD Jakes
We can’t lead until we learn how to serve. The most important gift you can give to another person is the ability to serve them and endeavour to meet their expectations; although, this shouldn’t be at the detriment of your mind and well-being. As you are here reading this blogpost, I want to ask you: what kind of unity are you bringing in your own community? What problems are you endeavouring to solve?
Yes, you have identified the problem, but have you come up with an effective solution? Are we still using the same techniques and expecting different results, whilst being frustrated when we don’t see change? The question to consider going forwards is: “how is my heart’s posture?”. Despite all that happened in 2020, we are still on lockdown, however, it does not mean we ought to lock our hearts or feel immune to other people. Yes, we all have needs, but there are people around that may have difficult needs than you.
We need to endeavour to be in a position where unity is utilised, practised and seen on a daily basis. Yes, we go through our personal and to some extent, professional struggles, yet, they aren’t meant to keep us bound. We use what we go through to lift the other person up. Companies, corporations, businesses, schools, the social system, the healthcare system; all these have severe issues that we may or may not see, but what is their common goal? Unity and consistency. They never stop! I want to tell you something; the only person that is stopping you from achieving greatness isn’t Covid-19, its not another lockdown, its not losing your job; it is you.
You need to start looking within and ask yourself: “what can I do with what I currently have?” “how can I change my mindset around to make a difference in my own community, starting with one person at a time. Until we can answer these questions, we will always feel stuck in our minds and assume the battle is heavy. Remember that unity is already in you; it takes a positive mindset to desire to share it with others because, in order to have a beloved community, we MUST have a common unity.
Until next time,
