Proverbs 27:23 NASB "Know well the condition of your flocks, And pay attention to your herds;"If I didn't know the condition of the relationships, how could I ask them to risk their life with me?! Today's verse may seem directed at farmers but we can apply it to any area of our life. Being an officer in the fire service meant that at any moment I could lead my crew into a situation that could possibly be the last thing we ever did. Knowing the condition of my crew meant more than just know how they were on the outside but knowing how they were on the inside, were there internal struggles between them, did they have a problem with my leadership, areas of concern that would take our mind off the task at hand. In life, we may be given the responsibility of others, like our wives, children, aging parents, neighbors, co workers and knowing the condition of those relationships can make the difference between life and death. So we need to be honest, straight forward and speak the Truth in love, cause you never know, it could be the last time we see each other! peace, tom
