Today's quote

Posted February 23, 2021 from Kenya

Never plant thorns on the paths that people use to access you because one day, you may need to visit them barefooted. Your greatest contribution to the universe may not be something you do for your own good but the people you raise and the relationships you build.  Keep your standards, but be accessible so that you access others.  Blessed week sisters

Sasa Josephine,
Hiyo quote iko on point sana especially these days when people exercise their block button power too quickly, creating a false sense of safety, denying others access but at the same time locking themselves in. (While thinking: 'I will show them, ha ha') Having the social media block button in my opinion, although sometimes a good thing, has stolen so much of our relational courage, and made many of its users prisoners to the very thin they thought would give them freedom. It is so important to remain accessible in an increasingly fragmented world, and I hope may even in your local circles can get this reminder and be challenged by it.
Let's keep making space for others, inviting them, seeking them out to encourage them, repaying evil with good, and building others up beyond looking for what we might gain. All the best as you nurture your relational courage and, as the saying goes, be a bridge, even when you did not cause the storm.

Hi Josephine,
These are wise words, and I appreciate them. We need to keep in conversation with each other, not to be isolated and too late discover that connection was possible.

What a beautiful quote that is so true. You should lift yourself up as well as lift others and always have love in your heart for those around you.

Hello sis Josephine, thanks for the great quote. It reminds me of the unconditional love and compassion I get from my World Pulse sisters and pray I can be able to pass it on to my community members. To me its a requirement!!!
