TITLE: GET ALONG
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
ECCLESIASTES 4:9 “Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.”
Developing the capacity to get along with someone else or other people is very important to achieving the greatness we all desire. You accomplish great things alone, but by getting along with others, you accomplish even greater. “One shall chase a thousand, two shall put ten thousand to flight ”
It doesn’t matter what your background taught you, if you are finding it difficult to relate with other people or insisting that people speak your language, think like you, act like you and do everything your way, you will be limited.
And if you think you are making effort to get along but every other person doesn’t get along with you, check things properly, the problem may be from you. Though majority does not always win the vote, still sometimes it does. Everybody cannot just be against you all the time.
You need to sit down and ask yourself “is there an attitude I display that repels people from me? Do I feel like am the only one who is right, the only who’s got a point, the perfect one, etc.
You must not conclude that they are jealous and envious of you, don’t just conclude that the reason you and people don’t really get along is the problem of the people.
We’ve seen people who get along with only members of their family. Some others who get along with only people they feel they’re better than (that’s a sign of insecurity). We have also seen people who will never get along with anyone who didn’t come to them first. (It’s another sign of insecurity and pride) And there are some who simply don’t trust people, they think everyone coming to them is coming with an ulterior motive.
Not being open to relate with people you live or work with will only deprive you of what God wants to do in you and through you.
Remember what happened with the people who were building the tower of Babel; it was a great goal, they were already doing so well towards accomplishing that goal until they could no longer get along with one another.
You need to learn a lot through the experiences you gather while relating with different types of people.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
LORD I RECEIVE THE GRACE TO ACCEPT, ACCOMODATE AND VALUE PEOPLE IN MY LIFE, IN JESUS NAME… AMEN
