TOPIC: Your Impact on Other and Your Success in Life
SCRIPTURE: As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged everyone of you, as a father doth his children, That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. 1 Thessalonians 2:11-12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: You are at your best when there are people who can trace their success to your life.
MESSAGE: Sometime ago, someone walked up to me and said that I gave him money to buy remedial form for his degree course. Although I could not remember when I did it, I was glad to know that the person is now a graduate. I have experienced many cases like that: some of them say, ‘If not for you, I would not have graduated from the University. If not for you, my son would have dropped out of school.’
There are some young men that God brought my way in Ministry and gave me the privilege of impacting them as a Spiritual Father. When I look at their ministries and the impact on their lives and destinies, I say, ‘Thank You LORD for the privilege of affecting lives positively.’
The truth is, you are at your best when you bring out the best in others. You are at your best when your life is concentrated in adding value to people’s lives. You are at your best when there are people who can trace their success to your life. When you help others to realise their visions then you are at your best.
Daniel decided that Shadrach Meshach and Abednego should be upgraded when he was upgraded, therefore, he could not end small in life (Daniel 2:49; 6:2-3).
Beloved, release the best in others; start from where you are and you can never end small in life.
Remember this: You are at your best when there are people who can trace their success to your life.
1. Assist someone reach where they are struggling to reach.
2. Do not ignore the less privileged; do something that will make them smile.
3. Encourage someone who has given up in life; call someone you have not seen for a while in church and know how they are faring spiritually and physically.
