This may sound cliché, but it’s not only true, also true is the fact thatmany people do not understand that this is a fundamental principle of life.
Let me share a personal story. Years back when I was a kid about age 8,I had a teacher in primary class Three. He was mean to us kids, taking out hisfrustrations on us in outbursts of anger resulting in verbal and physicalabuse. I, (and am sure) many others never forgot.
Life went on. Ten years later as a freshman I was on the queue at theUniversity Health Centre in another city, when I heard someone call my name. Wonderingwho it could be since we were just few days in school, I turned around only tosee my teacher from years ago. I asked him what he was doing there. He told mehe too was matriculating. Thank God for Jesus! I bore him no grudges. The pastis past but I learnt my lesson.
Then we were teacher and student. Now, we’re co-freshmen! The tableshad turned. Life had gone full circle. Oh, yes! Indeed life is a cycle. Those whoare up today may be down tomorrow and those who are down today may be up tomorrow.So, you don’t despise the “beggar” you meet on your way up, you may need him onyour way down!
I think we need to re-evaluate the way we look at the people we meet onour journey in life. We should stop placing people in those little stereo-typedboxes we’ve formed in our heads. Destiny happens in the most unusual of placesand with the least likely of people. Tomorrow you may be the one to need thehelp of the person who needs your help today. Listen, that a man is down todaydoes not mean he will be down forever! Conditions MAY change. Conditions DOchange. And conditions WILL change. No condition is permanent!
You see, I’m so passionate about this truth because I’ve seen a lot ofpeople miss out on what God wants to do in their lives because they keep takingpeople for granted. That’s why I wrote the book – small but powerful! That’s whatthose who have read it say, not me. A mini-book but it can give you amega-life! It is titled, THAT I LOOK LIKE A BEGGAR DOES NOT SAY I DO NOT HAVE ATHRONE! Simple truths delivering remarkable results.
See, that “beggar” of today like David could actually be aking-in-waiting or a king-in-hiding. Destiny is never written on people’sforeheads. You never can tell any man’s future by looking at their photographs.Never take anyone for granted or you may be grounded!
Lay your hands on a copy of this book THAT I LOOK LIKE A BEGGAR DOESNOT SAY I DO NOT HAVE A THRONE! In it I extracted five simple but significant lessonsof life from the story of David and Nabal in the Bible. They are lessons we allneed to learn. It’s also available as both a message & an audiobook on CD and in e-book (PDF)formats.
