Please, Beware!

*SIT DOWN,CHECK UP, MEDITATE, CRY OUT FOR HELP WHEN YOU NOTICE THESE IN YOUR LIFE.*

1. Beware When prayer becomes a difficult thing for you.

2. Beware When fasting is becoming a history in your spiritual timetable.

3. Beware When you no longer enjoy reading the word of God.

4. Beware When attending church programme is becoming a burden rather than a blessing for you.

5. Beware When living a life of holiness is appearing like extremism.

6. Beware When sinful living becomes a lifestyle in the name of grace.

7. Beware When you crave for earthly things rather than the things of God.

8. Beware When waking up in the night to pray is becoming a thing of the past.

9. Beware brethren, when your heart no longer desires to see the Lord Jesus one day.

10. Beware when you eat more than pray

11. Beware when you no longer share the word with others.

12. Beware When u start diluting the preaching Word of God to keep people around you.

13.  Beware When you spend more time on Facebook, whatsapp, twitter, and internet. These things become idols and take the place of God.

14. Beware When you ignore messages such as these.

Beware of all these, brethren. Satan isn’t resting. We too must be vigilant.

Lets prepare, Jesus is coming soon to take those who are eagerly waiting for him.

PLEASE DON’T LET SHARING THIS BECOME A BURDEN LET US ALL BE CONSCIOUS  OF THE LAST DAYS.

Money Mistakes

#MoneyMistakes: 1.

Never borrow money with interest to start a business (except for salary loans); only borrow to grow your business. This is because business takes a long time to gain ground and begin making profit yet for most of the loans you begin paying back a month later or even earlier. Hence,  never borrow to start a business expecting that business to be the one to pay back the borrowed money plus the interest.

#MoneyMistakes: 2.

Never spend money you haven’t received. Don’t even promise someone money based on a promise you have from someone else. Don’t hear somebody say, “Ezra come to my office tomorrow at 9am and pick 2m” and you go and buy items on credit hoping to clear when the promised money comes.

#MoneyMistakes: 3.

If you want to ever save, whenever you receive money ensure you don’t start spending before taking out the savings hoping that you’ll save what remains. Normally what remains is zero. And things to spend on even incite their ‘relatives’ while when money to spend is not available we naturally find a way of managing.

MoneyMistakes 4

When you get an opportunity to meet a very wealthy person never ask for money. Ask for ideas on how to make money. They can even choose to give you money on their own after seeing that your ideas are great, but let getting money from them never be your objective.

#MoneyMistakes: 5.

Keeping your seed instead of planting it. Many people stop at saving. It’s very, very difficult to save and have all you need to maintain your lifestyle especially after retirement. When you save, your savings are seed; plant it. When you just keep it some seeds begin to die (eaten by inflation and the likes). That’s where I recommend that you read about the different types of investment you can use to grow savings. I am not necessarily talking about putting the money in a business because you can easily lose money on a business. I am talking about putting it in an investment.

#MoneyMistakes: 6.

Never lend someone money you are not willing to lose. By the time you lend money, be contented in your heart that should the person not pay, you will not die. You should not even lose the person as a friend. If you realise the person can fail to pay you and you are ok  then lend. If you find you would even hate the person’s entire clan, please advise the person to go to the bank.

#MoneyMistakes: 7.

Never append your signature to guarantee someone on a financial matter if you are not willing or able to pay the money. Do I have to explain that one? No. It’s self explanatory.

#MoneyMistakes: 8.

Avoid keeping within easy reach money you don’t intend to use in the short term – don’t for instance walk with 100k in your pocket when all you plan to do in a day cost 20k.

: #MoneyMistakes: 9.

Avoid keeping money at inappropriate places eg in socks, under the pillow, in a pit, in the sitting room, in the bra, in a travel bag that you will place somewhere eg when in a bus..

#MoneyMistakes: 10.

Spending money on an item that you can do without (at least for the time being). These days when I pick money from my pocket, before paying for something I ask myself: What would happen if I don’t buy this? If I find I can live with the consequences of not having that thing, I smile and walk away.

#MoneyMistakes: 11.

Paying an amount that’s not the minimum you can get that same value for. In other words, if you pay 70k for a shoe at Topman that you can get at 30k at Kejetia/Kanta. Arcade, that’s a money mistake except for those who have achieved financial freedom.

#MoneyMistakes: 12.

Wanting to be the saviour  of the world by helping with ethane in financial need. My sister, brother you are not Jesus. If you find it so hard to say No to a financial demand, you may think you are practising  generosity when in actual sense you are practising  committing (financial) suicide.

#MoneyMistakes: 13.

Consistently spending all you earn or more than you earn is  like having a drum where you have an inlet that’s smaller than the outlet. It will never get full. And should the inlet ever reduce significantly the drum will run dry. If you do it the other way round and the inlet is bugger, it will get full and even overflow. Hence, we have to always ensure we are widening the inlet while narrowing the outlet – all the time.

#MoneyMistakes: 14.

Thinking about short term only and forgetting about long term or think  about the long term and forgetting about the short term. What of those who find they are one paycheck away from salary? Are they thinking about the long term needs?

Summarily,Don’t expose your success too quickly in life.I learnt that from playing WHOT.Once you just say “Last Card”, you will see your enemies coming out of the woods… You’ll just be hearing Pick 2, General Market, Hold On, etc..”
As if they never had such weapons before.
Be wise!!!!!!!!!!.

Remember, money or no money, the Lord is coming soon.

Vanity Of Life

Thought that Inspired THE VANITY OF LIFE…
🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾🌾

🌿One Sunday morning, a wealthy man sat in his balcony enjoying the sunshine and his coffee when a little ant🐜 caught his eye; going from one side to the other side of the balcony, carrying a big leaf several times more than its size.

🌿The man watched it for more than an hour. He saw that the ant🐜 faced many impediments during its journey, paused, took a diversion and then continued towards its destination.

🌿At one point the tiny creature 🐜came across a crack in the floor. It paused for a little while, analyzed and then laid the huge leaf over the crack, walked over the leaf, picked the leaf on the other side then continued its journey.

🌿The man was captivated by the cleverness of the ant🐜, one of God’s tiniest creatures.

🌿🐜The incident left the man in awe and forced him to contemplate over the miracle of Creation. It showed the greatness of the Creator.
🌿🐜Before his very eyes was this tiny creature🐜 of God, lacking in size yet equipped with a brain to analyze, contemplate, reason, explore, discover and overcome.

🌿Along with all these capabilities, the man also noticed that this tiny creature🐜 shared some human shortcomings.

🌿🐜The man saw about an hour later that the creature had reached its destination – a tiny hole in the floor which was entrance to its underground dwelling.

🌿🐜At this point the ant’s shortcoming that it shared with man was revealed.

🌿🐜How could the ant carry the large leaf it carefully managed to its destination into the tiny hole? It simply couldn’t!

🌿🐜So the tiny creature, after all the painstaking and hard work and exercising great skills, overcoming all the difficulties along the way, just left behind the large leaf and went home empty-handed.

🌿🐜The ant had not thought about the end before it began its challenging journey and in the end the large leaf was nothing more than a burden to it.

🌿🐜The creature had no option, but to leave it behind, to reach its destination.

🌿The man learned a great lesson that day. Isn’t that the truth about our lives?

🌿We worry about our family,👪
🌿We worry about our job, 👨🏻‍💻👨🏻‍✈👩🏼‍🍳👨‍🚒👨‍🏫👮🏻
🌿We worry about how to earn more money, 💵 💴 💶 💳 💷
🌿We worry about where we should live – 5 bedroom or 6 bedroom house. 🏡 🏘 🏠 🏚
🌿What kind of vehicle to buy – a Mercedes or Honda or BMW or a Porsche? 🚗🏍🚖🚘🚙🚎🛴
🌿🐜What kind of dress  & things to wear? 👗👚👠👡👕👖👔👞👜💼👓🌂🎓🍏🍐🍓🍇🍌🍉🥑🥒🌽🥕🌮🍦🥂🍾🍽⚽🏀🎱🏓🎾⚾🏈🏋🏻‍♀⛹🏻‍♀🤾🏻‍♀🤾🏻‍♂🏄🏼‍♀🏄🏼🏊🏻‍♀🏊🚴🏻‍♀🏅🥇🏆🎗🎧🎼🥁🎷🎸🎲🎮🎳📱⌚🖥📀📷🎞☎📡💎🔭🛒🎁📚📗
🌿🐜All sorts of things, only to abandon all these things when we reach the entrance to our destination – {THE GRAVE} when we realize we cannot enter our destination with all these things.

🌿We don’t realize in our life’s journey that these are just burdens that we are carrying with utmost care and fear of losing them, only to find that at the end, they are useless and we can’t take them with us.

🌿The ONLY TREASURE that lasts FOREVER is; OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR CREATOR -JEHOVAH GOD.

🌿So ask yourself, “AM I USING MY WHOLE LIFE TO SERVE HIM?
AM I DOING ALL I CAN?
🌿May God guide us all and remove from our hearts the excessive love we have for this world as we pursue his righteousness.

A Blowing Testimony

This testimony has blown me apart. May I I live for Him alone not for the things of this world. Read it soberly….

*RICK WARREN’S (BEST selling Author, Inspirational Speaker) Interview…..*

Pls Read this:

This is an absolutely incredible short interview with *Rick Warren,*
*’Purpose Driven Life’* author and
Pastor of *Saddleback Church in California.*

–In the interview by *Paul Bradshaw* with *Rick Warren,*

Rick said:
*–People ask me, What is the purpose of life?*

*–And I respond:*
In a nutshell, life is preparation for eternity. We were not made to last forever, and God wants us to be with Him in Heaven.

–One day my heart is going to stop, and that will be the *end of my body*– but not the *end of me.*

–I may live *60 to 100 years on earth*, but I am going to spend *trillions of years in eternity.*
This is the warm-up act –the dress rehearsal. God wants us to practice on earth what we will do forever in eternity..

–We were made by *God and for God*, and until you figure that out, life isn’t going to *make sense.*

–Life is a series of problems:
*Either you are in one now,* OR *you’re just coming out of one,* OR *you’re getting ready to go into another one.*

–The reason for this is that *God is more interested* in *your character* than *your comfort;* God is more interested in making *your life holy* than He is in making *your life happy.*

–We can be *reasonably happy* here on earth, but that’s not *the goal of life.* The goal is to grow in *character, in Christ likeness.*

–No matter how *good* things are in your life, there is always something *bad* that *needs to be worked on.*

–And no matter how *bad* things are in your life, there is always something *good* you can *thank God* for.

–You can focus on *your purposes*, or you can focus on *your problems:*

–If you focus on your problems, you’re going into *self-centeredness*, which is my problem, my issues, my pain. *But one of the easiest ways to get rid of pain is to get your focus off yourself and onto God and others.*

–Actually, sometimes learning to deal with the good is harder.
For instance, this past year, all of a sudden, when the book sold 15 million copies, it made me instantly very wealthy.

–It also brought a lot of *notoriety* that I had never had to deal with before.
I don’t think God gives you *money* or *notoriety* for your own ego or for you to live a life of ease.

–So I began to ask God what He wanted me to do with this money, notoriety and influence.
He gave me two different passages that helped me decide what to do, *II Corinthians 9* and *Psalm 72.*

–First, in spite of all the money coming in, we would not change our lifestyle one bit.. We made no major purchases.

–Second, about midway through last year, I stopped taking a salary from the church.

–Third, we set up foundations to fund an initiative we call *The Peace Plan* to plant churches, equip leaders, assist the poor, care for the sick, and educate the next generation.

–Fourth, I added up all that the church had paid me in the 24 years since I started the church, and I gave it all back. It was liberating to be able to serve God for free.

–We need to ask ourselves: Am I going to live for possessions? Popularity?

–Am I going to be driven by pressures? Guilt? Bitterness? Materialism? Or am I going to be driven by God’s purposes (for my life)?

–When I get up in the morning, I sit on the side of my bed and say, God, if I don’t get anything else done today, *I want to know You more and love You better.*

God didn’t put me on earth just to fulfill *a to-do list.* He’s more interested in *what I am* than *what I do.*

–That’s why we’re called *human beings*, not *human doings.*

–Happy moments, *PRAISE GOD.*
–Difficult moments, *SEEK GOD.*
–Quiet moments, *WORSHIP GOD.*
–Painful moments, *TRUST GOD.*
–Every moment, *THANK GOD.*

*–If you do not pass it on, nothing will happen.*

But it will just be nice to pass it on to friends…

*Just like I have done now.*
Note: This was passed to me and I think it will be of value to you.
