The Zen of 0 ~ Opening Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
First, I am not about to launch into mysticism or maths. Rather, I am going to try and find a balance between expectations and accountability. It was pointed out to me that there are some areas where I am not managing this well and I know that failure to do so harms those around me.
We need accountability. When someone that loves me has the courage to hold me to account I need to listen. When they take the risk, I need to realize that my flaws poke out in places I do not always see. The truth of this may be one of the best ways to create stability for those around me.
I also need to manage my expectations when it comes to accountability for others. I know that at times I am demanding. Sometimes that is not good. Sometimes it is vital. What I need to manage is when it is harmful.
I am going to spend a few days pondering the peace that lies in finding the zero balance in this. Managed properly accountability and expectations can live in balance but it must begin with me. I must see to my own sin before I engage with the sin of others.
Please walk with me a bit further as I try to be a better man. Your company and conversation are always precious to me Dear Reader.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
