Power and Demise of Connection
Electricity gives us power. Electricity is also a dangerous current if misconnected. Something meant for good can come as a deadly shock! Being connected to people is like electricity. Good connections give you power. Bad connections… ZAP!
My dad has someone he wants me to meet. He’s been trying to track me down to give me this person’s information and make it happen. “You all will hit it off!” he says, and I suck in my breath… resisting.
I stopped and asked myself, Why?
Here’s the reason: being connected to him makes me feel like I will be pre-judged through who he is. After all, that’s the power of a great referral… immediate access to blessings and accolades without knowing the person yet. Meeting someone I do not know through my dad just makes me nervous. I have to enter the situation on the defense because all I can think of is getting across the fact that I’m not anything like him. I am reliable. I am honest. I accept responsibility. I keep my word.
Am I wrong for assuming that this person I will meet will think the worst?
I see it as simply cautious.
There is power and demise in being connected to certain people.
