QUOTE OF THE DAY: “NO ONE IS YET AT HIS/HER BEST”
Memory Verse: “Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervour, serving the Lord”. Romans 12:11.
Life is a good business; it is either you get busy at it or you fizzle out from the business of life. Jesus said, in the parable of the ten servants ‘occupy till I come’ Luke 19:13. If you are idle in life, you will be stuck in the middle of life. When a man has found the purpose of his existence, the next thing is to get busy at it. If you can’t work it out, it won’t work out. There is gold in you which can only come out if you keep working on yourself. Here is an illustrative story:
[pullquote]Life is a good business; it is either you get busy at it or you fizzle out from the business of life.[/pullquote]In the mid-twentieth century, in Bangkok, Thailand, the government wanted to build a large highway through a village. Yet in the path of the planned road was a Buddhist monastery, so they had to relocate the monastery including a heavy, eleven-foot clay statue of Buddha to another place. Using a crane, the government workers moved the monastery in sections. When the workers transported the statue of Buddha to the new location and began to lower it into place, however the clay on the statue started to crumble and fall off. The people were afraid because this was a precious religious symbol to them; and they did not want it destroyed.
Yet the more the workers tried to place the statue, the more it fell apart until, eventually, all the clay fell off. Suddenly, the workers stared in amazement because, as the clay fell away, something unexpected was revealed: the statue was pure gold underneath.
Those who keep working on themselves will eventually discover and unravel the gold in them. You are not a liability, there is ability in you. You worth more than this, but if you are not busy enough or working on yourself, the skills and professionalism in you will not be revealed. Challenges keep rising every day, only those who are skillful, creative and competent will survive. So, improve on your performance by widening your knowledge base via reading, practicing, learning and necessary exposure to mention a few. Remember, if you are loaded, you will be needed. Today will be great in your life. Have a fruitful day!
