Let People Know You Appreciate Them

A very timely verse of the day from the Bible app.

Yesterday I attended the funeral of a mentor who helped me learn and grow in my functional and technical knowledge at the company I work for.

I had started straight out of college with the company and I’ve been working in tech now for over fifteen years in the same company.

While I have moved around and learned different parts of the business, the principles that mentor taught me still hold true.

I was able to speak with this mentor back in the January timeframe about how he helped me and about what purpose God had for us in life. It was a good discussion.

I never saw him again after that day.

But I can at least say that I was able to speak to him and let him know that I appreciated him.

Coworkers are just as important in your life as anyone else. You’ll probably spend more of your day time (awake) hours with them than your family over a lifetime.

Make sure you let them know that you appreciate them and don’t conceal it.

Better is open rebuke Than love that is concealed. Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But deceitful are the kisses of an enemy.
Proverbs 27:5‭-‬6 NASB
