If you’re not a worker you’d be a beggar. Things only work for workers. There is no free launch in life, you can’t eat your cake and have it. What you don’t work won’t work – work out your own change of level. Your tomorrow is determined by you. Jesus said, “i must do the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (John.9:4). Again and he said, occupy till I come! ( meaning that, do business till I come).
Life is business. Your twenties are the best moments to see the brighter you can see for the brightness of your tomorrow. Time not well managed will be wasted. Time wasted may never be recovered. You think you’re small? At the age of 8, people were already ascending throne in Israel. Jesus already knew where he was going at age of 12 – and he said unto them, how is it that ye sought me? Wist ye not that i must be about my Father’s business (Luke.2:49). He was not a play boy. Now, you’re in your twenties, you don’t even know the definition of a vision not to talk about where you’re heading. You can’t have where you’re going and not package yourself dangerously to get there.
In boxing, there is a featherweight (115 pounds/52kg), lightweight (135pounds/61kg), welterweight (147pounds/67kg) and heavy weight (unlimited). The heavy weight are the ‘baba (father)’ of boxing. Before you can be qualified as a lightweight, you must have passed through the level of featherweight, subsequent to cruiserweight (200 pounds/91kg) is heavyweight. By the time you would have become an heavyweight, your body would have been used to being crushed, and after the referee has counted one, two…., you are already on your feet (bounced back to fight). Why? Because your body has been used to being crushed.
In football, we have under seventeen, under twenty, under twenty-three, etc. People are already watching you at the age of sixteen. You think you are small? You’re already behind schedule. Your mates are already CEO’S in some other countries. This post is to dig around you. Stop being playing boys and girls. You don’t have a spare of life, stop living rough.
In a sprint, at the beginning of the race you could tell who would win the race. Life is a race, that is what Paul called it: Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain (1.Cor.9:24). There are seasons and time for all things, energy level diminishes with age and those who discovered where they belong on time were the ones who were able to make the most of their lives. You can inherit properties but not status. Your worth is as worked by you (you can’t use the certificate you inherited from your father to secure a job even if your father was a professor, his professorial title doesn’t qualify you for a job). Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house (Proverbs.24:27).
Listen to this: people will not remember you for your title but your name. The value in your name is determined by the impact that you made. We live in a world whereby an army of people are making living while only few are making impact. The few that are making impact are the ones called stars. You’re an eagle, refuse to settle with the ducks. Every genuine child of God is ordained for a flight.
