Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book “Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty: The Only Networking Book You’ll Ever Need” by Harvey Mackay.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Springtime is in the air! And romance abounds! Here we now are, flirting with life and love and all the beautiful shades of green on the buds of trees and blades of grass. Thank You for the collective creation we meet in Your Sacred time of spring. Lovely, indeed! Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:
“Know thine enemy through thine network. As Machiavelli admonished, ‘Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.'”
Most people do not want to stand particularly close to a skunk. Darting is the behavior that comes to mind. And God is in all people and creatures and things. God is in everything and everyone. One of my favorite passages that I have written speaks to this:
“There might be hatred in the spirit of a neighbor. There is Love in the spirit of a neighbor. We exploit.”
