Who are your clients?
This two verse were found interesting for my reflection today. The first is taken from today’s gospel, where the second is taken from today’s first reading.
Jesus answered and said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.” (Luke 5:27-32)
and here is taken from the first reading today:
“If you take away the yoke from your midst, The pointing of the finger, and speaking wickedness, If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness, And your darkness shall be as the noonday. (Isaiah 58:9b-10)
Some of us maybe have jobs as marketing or sales. These people should be more aware to the importance of clients in their business. Maintaining good relationship with clients is the most important thing we should do, whether the clients are inside our company or outside the company; whether the clients are in our churches or even anyone from other religions.
Then the first thing we must know is: who are our clients? Are they merchants? Engineers? Managers? If only we know who are our clients then we may do our job for maintaining good relationship with them. There is an old message said, “You can’t love if you don’t know”.
We must have a lot of clients in our life. Our family, our friends, coworkers, bosses, customers, etc. But as a human being, who is our clients? Today Jesus gave the answer.
When I was still like to judge others, I always think to stay away from the sinners. After I realized that everyone in this world are all sinners, I started to understand that no matter what, I have to deal with anyone around me, who are all sinners. Everyone around me are my clients, and since everyone are sinners, therefore my clients are also all sinners. Remember, I am a sinner too.
Today’s first reading is a continued verses from yesterday’s. From this passage we may learn that God don’t want us to point on other’s sin. God don’t want us to put heavy yoke on others by judge them because of their sins. what God want is for us be the light to them. Be the way back to the lost ones, peacemaker in wars, and helper for those who in needs.
Remember,this is our calling. Each of us is a sinner. Then it’s our duty to help each other, to lighten each other, so that whoever comes to our life may be healed and saved by God’s grace. It’s kind of our duty to show God’s love everywhere and every time. It’s the sick who needs help, not the healthy ones.
My dear friends, may God equipped us with more love and joy with awareness to bless anyone around us; every clients of us. Also may God helped us through the hands of other people around us. God bless you 😊.
