Proverbs 14:4 KJV
Where no oxen are , the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox.
Just yesterday while listening to a radio programme, I heard of a lady who interviewed about 30 people for a position in her office but didn’t hire any because she felt none was qualified.
I found that to be strange too and agreed with the host, who thought probably that this interviewer may also need to re-check herself well in a mirror. The problem may not be the interviewees but the interviewer. If you find it hard to identify qualities in others but rather focus on their weaknesses you may end up working all alone.
I believe this what Solomon the wise sought to say in this proverb. Much abundance and harvest comes from the work of ox and cattle, but that means one may not have a clean crib/stable most of the time.
People usually come with their good and bad, and though it is hard to take in the bad most of the time, the good is there for our benefit and advancement. A good manager is one who is able to weave both sides of people to get the best of them. Jesus did good with Mary Magdalene, Peter and others. We can do same!
Have a blessed day. #TGIF
