It pays to help people...

I grew up helping people with things I am gifted in: computers, internet, IT related things generally. I also would go the extra mile just to ensure that one was ok when they came looking for some sort of support. This made me sow seeds of kindness to a few people.

Later I was pushed to start the "nothing goes for nothing" lifestyle. But truly I struggled living that way. Yes I needed money. But I was not so fulfilled even when the money would come.

On the other hand, the seeds of kindness I had sowed earlier in life keep bringing in harvests of favours...

Today, I received a call and guess what? I helped someone to get a contract...Now he wants to appreciate me. It suddenly dawned on me, THIS IS HOW I AM CUT OUT TO LIVE- Help people achieve their desired goals and God will reward me in different other ways. Yes, they may appreciate me too. But ultimately, God's reward is better. I have seen it happen over and over again.

Zig Zigler wrote "You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want. " This is a radical truth I have seen play out in my life.

Thank God for the 'resurrection'. Now I am living MY LIFE!

Friends,  may you (re)discover what you were born to do this year in Jesus name. Amen
