Bible Reading: John 2:1-25
Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit serving the Lord. Romans 12:11
God’s intention for man right from creation was for man to be self-reliant. Adam did not depend on any man. He survived by himself. There was nobody Adam looked up to as god, father, or helper, his sole help came from God who made him. That was how man was created to live. Stop begging. Don’t depend on a man. Don’t let your future or prospects depend on man because I can assure you, man will fail you. Instead, look inward. There are natural gifts God has put into you that can make you. Many of you pray for fishes without first getting the fishing net. Sit down and think about your situation. Explore every opportunity. Don’t be afraid to take a risk. Also, don’t live a fake life. Don’t try to be what you are not. Don’t strive to please people. Live reasonably. People will not assess you based on what you told them but on what they see that you actually are. If you are real and original, people will appreciate you better. Don’t compete with anyone otherwise you will lose focus and directive. Be a giver. It is more blessed to give.
