TITLE: IT’S NOT ALWAYS ABOUT YOUc
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
PROVERBS 18:2 “Fools find no pleasure in understanding but delight in airing their own opinions.”
It’s not always about you. You shouldn’t only be concerned about expressing your heart. People often display foolishness with the way they express their heart. It is good that you seek to understand why things are the way they are and why people act the way they do.
If we could just stop to understand, we may end up finding out that our expression towards some people and some things may be different.
Lack of proper understanding of things or people have cost some damages which should have been avoided in some peoples lives.
Gehazi got himself leprosy because all he cared about was to express his own opinion by his action. Peter got hot rebuke from Jesus because he lacked understanding of purpose. If he understood purpose, he would have held his peace when Jesus talked about His death.
Sit down to think things over before rushing to say what you think is best to be said or do what you think is best to be done. Some people didn’t get a chance to recover from the consequences of making the mistake of thinking that everything is about them. You can find out from David’s wife.
Get understanding for it brings you favour.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
O GOD MY FATHER, I ASK FOR UNDERSTANDING. I GIVE UP ANY FORM OF SELFISHNESS IN MY LIFE TODAY. I LIVE TO BRING GLORY TO YOUR NAME, IN JESUS NAME… AMEN
