TITLE: YOU MUST NOT ALWAYS SAY ‘YES’
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
PROVERBS 18:24 ” A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”
Showing yourself friendly to your friends does not mean that you should always affirm to whatever they bring. Truth is as the second part says that there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother, at the same time, if you are not wise while dealing with friends, you will put yourself in trouble.
There are times you will have to say ‘NO’ someone said it is good to learn to say NO without feeling guilty. The only person who deserves your ALL TIME YES, is God alone. When God says anything, don’t argue, don’t even analyze it, just say ‘YES’
But if it is man, no matter how long the friendship has lasted, no matter how much the person has done for you, even if the person has taken a bullet for you, when you need to say NO, throw away sentiments. Don’t do friendship by sentiments.
When you should you say ‘NO’? Say ‘NO’ when what is demanded is not available. Don’t steal to meet a need, give only what you have. Say ‘NO’ when what is demanded does not fit into your values, your priorities and God’s plan for your life.
Sometimes we may need to be flexible and make sacrifices but, make sure your sacrifice does not cost you your future.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
I RECEIVE WISDOM AND BOLDNESS TO REFUSE WHEN I HAVE TO, IN JESUS NAME… AMEN
