This morning as I was driving, it crossed my mind that often in our life, we have intentionally or sub-consciously being made someone’s stepping stone or made someone our stepping stone.
Often, being a stepping stone is associated to the negative. Kinda a floor mat. Hi & Bye. We serve our purpose for a brief moment only. When that person finds someone or something better, it is aside with old and in with the new. Let’s not shoot those people for we may be guilty of doing so ourselves.
So what is the point of writing this today?
Well, we all have a purpose to serve or live out in this life. Whatever we do, we do it unto the Lord. If someone made us a stepping stone, it is only because we have something important that the other person needs. Ain’t it better than not being needed at all? At least we have being a blessing, amidst moments only. If we are the “culprits”, then it is within our control to stop! We need to incorporate a culture of “gratefulness” into our character. Forget not those who helped us along the way. This is what society is lacking these days.
If we have being made a stepping stone, here’s a positive perspective…
- Be thankful you have blessed someone
- If that person made you feel as if you are only a tool, then let us not do the same unto others
- Learn from the lesson as a stepping stone
If you have made others your stepping stone, here’s what you may need to do…
- Stop! Be grateful to all who has helped and blessed you in your journey
- Show appreciation to them
Now, being a stepping stone does not sound that bad right? It’s a process of life. It’s unavoidable. Make the most of it. Stay positive.
