TOGETHER MAKES MORE SENSE.

Stop being or doing bad to people you meet and engage on.

Because of this, those people you hurt tend to develop this hatred towards helping other people.

This action denies those who genuinely need that kind of help in the future.

Stop causing others pain in various ways.

Because those people that receives those pain stores it up and innocently conclude that all human beings are the same.

This action denies others of the relationship they would have enjoyed from that personality in the future.

This mindset shapes them into the supposedly wicked man or woman.

What you do to somebody comes back in one way or the other to you.

Take a scenario for an instance:

You duped this somebody who willingly lends you some money. It happens that you were the third person that did that to this somebody or may be the fourth or fifth. The somebody has saved up a lot of pain and in anger he resolves never to help anyone again.

Fate came and you found yourself in it’s prison gasping for hope. Your son a very nice personality, better than you, eventually bumps into this somebody that liked your son and would want to invest in him for his project. Your son came home happy and as per parental laws, he came along with this somebody that wants to get parental consent before processing your son’s Visa and all that. On getting there, the sight of you irritated this somebody and you all began to cry.

Pause.

From the look of things – now – this somebody is really a kind person but there is every tendency that the kindness will dissolve because not everyone has the ability to forgive, forget and reengage. Not everyone has a soft heart of looking away that easily because it might have been in their worst nightmare that you did that harmful act to them.

Dear friend,

TOGETHER makes more sense. You don’t have to draw someone down before you can be able to climb up the ladder of responsibility. You can hang on the personalities apron while you make effort to climb up the same ladder with yet another person cling to you. One of the reason why crime permeates the society is because we are unequal and not contented with what we have. Imagine me having a billion naira and you having a billion naira, how on earth are we going to be cutting into each others business when we have something else to think about and invest our time into. Succeeding alone without helping others succeed in your own little way commands a reputable future of disaster.

TOGETHER MAKES MORE SENSE.

THE STORY OF A MAN AND HIS MASTER.

A certain man was owing his master some huge amount of money.

His master, a business mogul, has a lot of properties and estates tagged to his name. He is wealthy.

One day, while going through his credit records, he took notice of a man whom he did business with and for some years now hasn’t paid the remaining balance. Immediately, he dialed the Man’s number to call him to order.

He is influential and to that cause, the man zoomed off in response to the call.

Meanwhile, this man who is in debt is having a hard time. His business is taking a nose dive and he’s almost frustrated with the bills piling up by day.

On getting to the house of the master, he fell on the floor begging, narrated his current ordeal and pleaded for more time to pay up.

“Sir, in the name of the Lord, I beg you. I know I’ve wronged you in this way, please find it in your heart to grant me a chance to pay later. I am currently facing a hard time in my life; how I wish this is a dream, maybe the worst nightmare I could come off immediately. My wife is pregnant, my son’s school fee I have not paide, my mother is ill, my business is dying; I am dying. Sir, please, give me some time, I promise to pay you back with an interest.”

He said this crying with his face on the floor, ashamed of looking at his master.

The master was enveloped with compassion and mercy that he almost shed tears. He has been through this kind of storm and knew exactly what it means to pass through at such a time. He resolved to cancel the debt and he informed the man.

“I’m sincerely sorry for all you are going through. Be strong and you will see yourself come out stronger. I forgive you the debt. Henceforth you are a free man.”

He was so happy. It was as if a burden weighing a tonne was lifted off his shoulder.

On his way home, he met someone who has been owing him quite a few sum of money. About 1/10 of the debt he was recently freed from.

He approached the debtor and began to harass him for owing for so long. That he cannot be owing him for so long while he suffers.

“…pay me now or be arrested…” he said to him.

Immediately, he fell on his knees begging for some time. That he’s also going through a storm.

Well, all his pleading fell on deaf ears. He got him arrested and was jailed.

However, the news circulated the town and the master who forgave him of his dept heard it and was raged. He called him to order and asked why he could do such even after forgiving him such a huge dept.

“I thought you are a better man. That you would go ahead and teach others what I thought you by my simple act. How much is he owing you that you could not forgive him of. Is it that more than the one I forgave you off…”

Before he could reply, the man made a sign to his servants to have him put where he will suffer the pain of lack of forgiveness.

There, the pangs of lack of forgiveness clinched to his soul and in regret, he counted his sorrows.

MORAL OF THE STORY

“…Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us…”

If you don’t forgive, you will not be forgiven.

Compassion is an act you need to grow in. Without it, you can not feel what others are going through.


This story was inspired from the parable our Lord Jesus told concerning the unforgiving servant. (Mathew 18:23-34)

Why we need to associate with people in Life

I’ve seen a lot of people saying that they don’t need other people to survive.

I for once have thought about that too. A time came in my life when I thought that I could do alone. I was frustrated. Literally speaking, I never achieved anything much.

I’m not disputing the fact that we can do things alone. Yes, we can. But think about it. How many research have you done without consulting someone else’s journal or report. How many times have you been able to get things done without being inspired by something or someone.

I could go on and on giving you scenarios where you will depict the fact that you are never an island of knowledge. What you know is a combination of what others knew before you did.

It is, inarguably true, that an individual needs another to excel in any sphere or aspect of life.

Deep thought!

Family. A man needs a woman for recreation.

Schooling. A student needs a teacher for Knowledge.

Greatness. An individual needs a mentor and Idea sparking friends.

Success. An individual needs Tests and Examinations

Deep thought, again!

Name. You need your parents to have a brand; your name.

Death. Something will, kill you. Either Peace of mind or External factors.

Life. You need someone; parents, to give you Life to Live.

Why I need People, most especially the right People.

  1. To Live a fulfilled Life.
  2. To Maximize my Talent.
  3. To Deal with mediocrity.
  4. To Remain Positive.
  5. To Maximize my happiness.
  6. To Grow stronger.
  7. To Keep the Faith Stronger.
  8. To Help each Other.
  9. To spark out ideas.
  10. To Win.
  11. To Be Important.
  12. To make an Impact.
  13. To make a Change.
  14. To be True.
  15. To overcome and conquer.

We become what we become when we associate with People.

Deep thought!

An alphabet needs another alphabet to make a word; an important substance to every speech or language.

You need your parents at the first and second stage of Life.

You need guidance and wisdom, from Others.

You can not produce something without an inspiration from Others. The truth is our destiny is found from our connection to others, to God.

Everything, borne on earth, born on earth and invented on earth and beyond, needs a partner to get to its Destination.

Even the bird needs feathers to fly.

Success needs you to be called success. And you need success to be called a Success.

Shalom!

A Message to the Parents – Episode one

Dear Parents,

Attention is what your children need not your gifts. If they had wanted the gifts they could have asked for it and if they ask,you will not be able to afford it in the market because it is within you. And the only way you can give them is by showing them the attention. The gift is Love! That feeling and presence that resurrects the Man and Woman in them.

Spank them and discipline them but do not forget to offer them this free gift with which you will make them better parents like you in the future.

Remember this;

Business and church is come to stay. But your children won’t remain children forever. They will someday grow and become parents like you. And for them to be able to walk closer and in the way of the Lord, you need to start now by giving them the attention and proper Godly training and upbringing they need.

The future depends on this responsibility.

Before you give up on your future – Read this

One can even determine when you ought to move and when not to move. Surprisingly enough they will predict your future; which is more crazier than crazy.

I came to understand that no matter what you do people will have that short sentence they will have to say about it.

Like, if you try to do something that they don’t understand, they will cuss up and down the sky looking for a way to take you along with their misery.

Sincerely, what you need to understand is this; the act of talking and discussion will never end. It won’t. Even if it wants to, it just can’t.

Funny enough, the dead, ghost alike, talk also. They do so, and Sometime, they gossip about, leaving what they are supposed to do. Which is Rest!.

But Hey, do you know that, Being ‘Talked’ about or discussed, is a natural Phenomenon that, i will say, makes you a ‘Somebody’, something ‘Worthy of discussion’ and should you heed to it,you will never get to where you are meant to go in Life.

However, being dictated, made a zombie, and literally configured on a course by certain individuals, is what those ‘certain individuals’ could do and you, keeping the tabs on, keeping it real and remaining focused, is what you could do.

You, need to break off; step aside, break out from their Prison of words and Run as fast as you can. That, will help you a lot.

Wait a minute, dear, re-read the previous paragraph. Again. Again… Again. Are you done? Alright, let’s continue.

Furthermore, feeling comfortable in this kind of situation, for me, is not a good idea. If you care to hear the words they have to say so that you won’t go contrary to their feelings; to avoid being seen as a contradictor, then forget about the future you are dreaming of. Here, i mean, a justifiable and trustworthy future. Don’t quote me wrong!

You cannot serve two masters at the same time – to listen to the past and future – you either follow the former or later. Whichever you take, the consequences are all yours to bear.

When an individual moves forward without looking back, he gets foresight and insight on how to overcome the stumbling block on his way. But when he looks back and still intend to go forward he is Confused;he or she doesn’t know what he wants and where he wants to go.

In this journey, looking back is only permitted if you wish to count your blessings and to name them one by one, so that you will realise that ‘you have come this far to go back’.

Stop listening to the negative words hovering in your area. You are way more and better than that. Trust me. I am, too.

Nobody is above mistake. You walked the wrong path, you made the mistake, you failed and you loosed is not the end of the world. There is still hope, a space,a road you can still walk on that will take you home. Hope on it, Faith in it, you are still alive.

Keep going, the future is better. Stop presuming that the things said to you is the end of your journey. You still have the world to change, a family to love, friends to spend time with, and places to go.

Success, that lovely thing everybody wants, don’t just fall off from the sky. It hangs up there waiting for someone that has the mind to come and get it. It won’t fall if you don’t take the risk. It won’t fear you, if you don’t grab the courage. It will be there looking at you the same way you’re looking at it except you act, except you make a move that will change your life for ever.

And mind you,you can not keep on listening to the negative words and still want to jump.You will just be wanting to commit suicide. A good time suicide.

The decision to stay happy and remain happy is in your hands. If your heart beats for the future I see no reason why your body should beat for the past.

Shalom!
