QUOTE OF THE DAY: “YOU CAN NEVER EXPERIENCE PEACE UNTIL THOSE PLANTED AROUND YOU ARE AT PEACE”
Memory Verse: “So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed” John 8:36.
Whenever God blesses you, He has others in mind. Whenever you are privileged to occupy a significant position of influence within the society, such privilege is given to you so that through you others can be lifted. Whenever God is set to bless a nation, or lift a people, more often than not, His method has been that He will raise someone among them such that through the fellow He can reach others. Esther was raised from a nonentity to a celebrity because of the deliverance of the Jews that were in servitude in Babylon. Hear what Mordecai said to Esther ‘and who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this’ Esther 4:14.

It takes God for a person who is in affluence to remember those at the lowest rung of social strata. This is obvious in our country, and in other nations of the world. However, the truth is if the less-privileged are abandoned by the most privileged or where the rich are so selfish and the government feels unconcerned and does nothing about the unemployed, and touts, the implication is that sooner or later, they will grow wild and threaten the so-called peace and wealth of the affluent few.
It is not any wonder that we have armed robbers, terrorists, kidnappers and hired assassins in our society. It is dangerous as well as risky to be growing in life without carrying others along. Those you fail to help will eventually hurt you no matter how smart you think you are. In whatever you are doing, carry others along. Do not attempt to succeed alone. When you are already up, help others around you to also come up; both in your family and within the community. By this, your safety and peace are guaranteed.
Enjoy your day!
