When good things come out of you, you are perceived as beautiful, even if you’re not as good looking as you’d like. And if bad things come out of you, you’ll be perceived as ugly, even if you’re gorgeous. – Selah
Life is a journey; no one has arrived until he is dead. Keep moving.
Mr. A is known to be very cunning, crafty and smart and has a reputation of being able to fool anyone.
Mr. B heard of this and decided to put Mr. A in his place and set him straight.
So on a certain morning he met Mr. A just as he was leaving the market through the north gate and said to him, “Mr. A, I am told you can trick and fool anyone. I just want you to know that you can’t fool me, I’ll catch you every time.” Mr. A’s brow furrowed with seriousness and after a moment said to Mr. B, “Alright, I accept your challenge. Just give a moment let me get some things from the market then I’ll come back and play some trick on you too.”
Mr. B agreed.
At the close of business for the day, some passersby saw Mr. B standing at the north gate of the market and told him if he was interested in doing business in the market, he’d better hurry as they were closing down, to which he replied, “No thank you, I’m just waiting for Mr. A to finish his business in the market so he’ll come and try to fool me and I can refute him.”
Everyone who heard Mr. B burst out laughing and shaking their heads. “You have already been fooled, Mr. B. Mr. A left over six hours ago through the west gate”
It’s foolishness to think you can never be fooled,
It’s deception to think you can never be deceived,
It’s wrong to think you can never be wrong;
Be wise, seek advice.
I just read this somewhere.
I asked Him, “Why are you taking me through troubled waters” and He answered, “Because your enemies can’t swim”.
When you make a mistake and nobody tells you, it could be because you don’t mean much to them. If you’re making the same mistake over and again and nobody tells you, it could be because they have concluded there’s no point. And at that point, you’re in GRAVE danger. Look around you, who and who is keeping quiet over you? Don’t just bury it under the “friendship is not by force” carpet, you could actually be on a road to destruction – Selah
It’s easier to lead someone who is on a journey than someone who has arrived. God cannot lead you unless you know you still have some way to go, something to learn. Let Him take the lead in your life.
