“You’re an original, don’t die a copy”. You must have heard it said and probably told yourself the same very often. Well, I’ve observed that, for most of us, in the bid to be “original”, even when we see something obviously working for someone where we are struggling, we still refuse to “copy”.
“You’re not an original because you’re the first to do every little thing; it is your particular blend of talents and unique brand of creativity that makes you original. What most of us have tagged as “copying” is what is called “learning”. Please be humble enough to learn from those who have something you need but maintain your originality by always trying out new ways to improve what you have acquired by learning. That’s why the world is being made a better place and not a fresh start again and again.
Heb 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; Heb 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.
Humility, it’s not one of the gifts of the Spirit but sometimes, I wish it was. – Selah
