On Being Stewards of Relationships

Just after finishing my last post, I received the weekly meditation from the Henri Nouwen Society.  It seemed to arrive at an appropriate time as I thought about the importance of valuing the relationships I have with people; hearing complaints but not becoming critical myself.  

 

The author is reflecting on the value of relationships.  She states,” I have come to reverence the preciousness of life. I now see myself as a steward of relationships. A good steward manages and cares for the dearest of relationships with love. A good steward is faithful to the law, the commandment to love, by tending to challenging relationships with mercy and forgiveness.”  

 

She is speaking in the context of being a parent but this applies to all of us and all of our relationships.
