OUR DAILY MANNA 25TH APRIL [SATURDAY] 2020 – MESSAGE: LORD, REMEMBER ME
Some years ago, a professor in a Ghanaian University said: “You could graduate as the best student in Finance but it doesn’t mean you will make more money than everybody else. The best graduating Law student does not necessarily become the best lawyer.
The fact is, life requires more than the ability to understand a concept, memorise it and reproduce it in an exam. School rewards people for their memories. Life rewards people
for their imagination and innovations. School rewards caution; life rewards daring. School hails those who live by the rules. Life exalts those who break the rules and set new ones.”
So only the smart ones make it in life and ministry! Even if you were the best student in a Bible school, it does not guarantee your GOOD SUCCESS IN MINISTRY or divine FLOW OF DIVINE POWER! Life is not all about academic grades. The great Late Nigerian lawyer, Ganı Fawehinmi, is a big example. His books are being used by FIRST CLASS GRADUATES, even though he made a 3rd class!
He was one of the prestigious inner club members of the SENIOR ADVOCATES OF NIGERIA (SAN)! In life, what you do with your experience is what counts at last! You might actually have a first class in school and still work under someone who had a third class. It is possible! Life does not commend you that you were exceptional within the box or within a guided syllabus, etc. Life rewards those who have exceptional thinking “out of the box.”
Yes! Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all! Hear from the Journals of Ralph Waldo Emerson: “Don’t be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”
I remember Craig D. Lounsbrough: “It is no secret that the greatest treasures are found in the most remote, maccessible and difficult places where we must pursue them with great energy and even greater risk. It’s the same with our lives. Even in a risky race, it is better to cross the line and bear the consequences, than to stare at that line for the rest of your life!
