This and That...
Perception!!! Double check when you think he/she's stooped to conquer. You never know when one has a need to ermm poo poo. Don't let desperation blur your vision of reason. Wise up or get played. Things aren't always as they seem. Well sometimes they are... Oh snap, life and it's complications :)
Irony!!! The smarter the technology, the dumber the people. It seems people loose common sense when they type into their smart phones. I have seen great men reduced to nothing by their gadgets or more like, gadgets exposing our ignorance?( i.e Nigerians and blackberry broadcasts)
Dream killers!!! No, not those friends that kick you out of your unrealistic dreams... Like when you keep insisting that you're sure you're some distant relative of Dangote, and he's been looking for your father, his favorite cousin for ages, to give half his kingdom to. Take it in good faith when you're hit on the head.
I mean those who wear the pessimistic crown, who never seem to be excited about every goal you score. Think arsenal finally winning a cup(yeah right) and their biggest fan showing no emotion and giving them a 'yimu'... Surround yourself with people who believe in your impossible dreams(not the dangote sort) That's being one step closer to achieving.
Priority!!! Put God first in all you do, and He'll be the perfect gentleman, opening doors for you to walk through. He wouldn't let you fumble with keys and pick on locks to enter the fullness of His kingdom. He's cool like that.
Due Process!!! Manufacturing of products have to go through the production line for a perfect finish. Each step has been thoroughly thought out, and if you're foolish enough to skip a process to save time, you'll get a flawed finish, and you'll have to go through the process all over again(wasting more time).
There's always a heavy price to pay when you skip the process. Instant gratification is not worth the price you pay. There's a greater glory in the end for those who are patient. Sometimes, when you stick with God, you loose the instant gratification of promotion, financial gain, early marriage etc. You go through the dungeon like Joseph, but in the end you wear the kings signet- ring. Are you waiting on God? Then wait!!! Yeah, easier said than done, I should know... But wait anyway.
Grey areas!!! You know the areas of life that aren't spelled out in black and white in the bible? Like smoking, drinking(the bible only warns about getting drunk, not drinking) Remember this when in doubt.
1 Corinthians 10:23 ' All things are legitimate [permissible--and we are free to do anything we please], but not all things are helpful (expedient, profitable, and wholesome). All things are legitimate, but not all things are constructive [to character] and edifying [to spiritual life].'
Got Jesus? Yeah I know you go to church. But what does your twitter timeline say about you? Things you tweet and retweet? Books you read? Is '50 shades of grey' next to your bible on your night stand?... Don't be a medium rare steak. Stay raw or well cooked. God loves a well done fine meal. Don't be spat out.
That's all folks.
