There Was Once A Story About A Poor Orphan;

Several Years Ago This Orphan Advertised Her Piano Recitals In Order To Raise Funds. Posters Boldly Declared She Was A Pupil Of The Celebrated Hungarian Pianist Franz Liszt – Which Of Course Was A Lie. To Her Horror, She Discovered Liszt Was Coming To The Village She Was Giving The Concert.

With Trepidation, She Requested An Interview With Him, Sobbed Out Her Confession And Awaited His Stern Rebuke For What She Did.

Liszt Acknowledged That She Had Been Wrong, But Recognised Her Repentance And Asked Her To Play For Him. At First, She Stumbled Over Her Notes.

He Gave Her A Few Tips And Said, “My Dear, Now I Have Given You A Lesson. You’re A Pupil At Liszt. Go On With Your Concert And Put On The Programme That The Last Piece Will Be Played Not By The Pupil But By The Master

Onesimus The Runaway Slave In The Bible, In His Time, Was Worthy Of Death For Running Away from His Master, Philemon. He Became Born Again Through Apostle Paul’s Ministry.

But Instead Of Turning Him Over For Punishment, Paul Sort To Restore Him To His Master, Having Been Forgiven And Reconciled With God.

Just Like Onesimus, That Orphan Girl Was Forgiven And Restored

While Most People Admit To The Fact That Confessing / Telling The Truth Can Be Sometimes Hard (Of Which 50-80% Of The Time Is, Especially If The Situation Is Unfavourable), What You Just Might Need In That Situation Is Confessing!

Free Yourself Of That Burden… Confess… Ask For Restitution… And Watch That Which You’ve Lost, Be Restored.

John Wesley Had This For His Rule In Life:

Do All The Good You Can,

By All The Means You Can,

In All The Ways You Can,

In All The Places You Can,

At All The Times You Can,

To All The People You Can,

As Long As Ever As You Can!

In This Post Is A Mini Awakening To What It Really Means To Be Good.

If We Will Ever Be Able To Boast That We Are Indeed Good To Everyone, There Are Certain Things That Must Reflect In Our Lives

When One Of Our Relations Is Overtaken By A Fault, Instead Of Tongue-Lashing Them Or Passing Out Negative Comments About Them (Which Is Often What We Are Firstly Tempted To Do As Humans...)

Rather, We Should Correct In Love, We Should Try As Much As Possible To Be Good…

If There’s One Important Lesson I’ve Learnt In Life… It’s That People WILL Offend You… And There’s Nothing You Can Do To Stop Them… In That Knowledge, Don’t Let An Outside Negative Energy Change Who You Really Are… (If You’re One Of The Good Ones Of Course! And If You Aren’t, Well Change! You Might Be The One In Need Next… You’d Never Know)

In This World, Where People Have Built High Walls Around Themselves, Noticing Other People’s Need Isn’t Something You Can Decide To Do…

But As An “Helping Hand”, Once It’s Evident Someone Is In Need, Or They Come To Us Specifically For Help… Then It’s An Obligation, If The Needs Are Honest. (You Never Know Who’s Going To Be Your Helping Hand, Remember, What You Sow, You Reap.

And What’s That They Say;

“What Goes Around, Comes Right Back Around!”

For The Past 10 Years, British Photographer David Weightman has taken photos of Beaming, Mostly Young Couples On Their Wedding Day.

Last Year, He Decided To Turn His Camera On Another Kind Of Couple In Attendance; Couples With Decades Of Marriage Under Their Belts.

Then He Asked The Marriage Vets To Sit For A Photo And Share Their Secrets To A Happy, Long-Lasting Relationship.

The Secret: TOLERANCE!

It’s A Give And Take, A Kiss Good Night At The End Of The Day, No Matter The Count Of Arguments You Had, A Specific Woman Named Joyce, Said Of Her 66-Year Marriage.

Her Husband, James, Had A Simpler Recipe For Marital Success: “Doing What I’m Told”, He Joked To Weightman.

Living Together Is One Of The Most Difficult Tasks For Humans. Sometimes We Turn Our Differences Into Walls Instead Of Bridges, But Taking Christ As An Example, We Will Know That The Life We Have In Christ Is Not For Ourselves But For Others.

We Must Learn To Bear With The Weaknesses Of Others The Same Way Christ Bore Ours And Be Willing To Give Others Allowance, The Same Way We Have Enjoyed From Christ.

Humans Are “Imperfect”, We’re Bound To Make Mistakes, Especially The Silly Ones. To Live In Harmony, You Must Have That Fact In Mind And Be Always Ready To Forgive And Forget.

The Media Went Wild When Ted Haggard (An American Evangelical Pastor, The Founder And Former Pastor Of New Life Church In Colorado Springs.) , Who Used to preach against Homosexuality ⚣, Was Involved In It.

Hypocrisy, As We Know It, Is Pretending To Be Something You’re Not Or Even Intend To Be. Sometimes, It’s Even When You’re Paying More Attention To Reputation Than To Your Character.

Let’s Take A look At The “So-called” Leaders (Not All Are, But, They’ve Contaminated The God-Sent)

Jesus, Back In His Days, Never Minced Words About Hypocrisy and Hypocrites. It Was Evident Of How He Directly Confronted The Religious Hypocrites Back Then, The Scribes, Pharisees, The Elite And Learned People At That Time (Of Which There Are Still Pretty Much Evident Now)

They Hated And Arrested Him On Trumped Up Charges.

Some Christians, While Being Skeptical About Being “Contaminated” By The Unbelievers, They Exhibit Self-Righteousness

Hypocrisy, In Our Today World Is Being Manifested In Various Ways Such As; Giving To The Less Privileged Publicly Or Uploading It To The Social Media Of Their Choice | Fasting And Praying Publicly |

(A Part Of The Bible Scolds This Act; )

“When You Pray, Do Not Be Like The ‘Hypocrites’! They Love To Stand In The House Of Worship And On Street Corners, So That Everyone Will See Them. I Assure You, They Have Already Been Paid In Full.

Matthew 6:5 GNB

The Bible Furthermore Tells How To Pray In The Succeeding Verses.

The Most Obvious Manifestation Of The Hypocritic Act Is How We Sometimes Complain About Someone Else’s Behaviour When Ours Is Even Worse!

I Understand We’re All “Humans” Yes, And Humans Are Faulty As… But As Hard As It Can Be, Try To Be Original And Genuine In All You Do… You Won’t Regret It!

DON’T TELL PEOPLE YOUR PLANS!

KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

I Know, After Discovering This Blog, Some Of My External Friends Are Going To Ask The ~ Why Didn’t You Tell Me ~ Type Of Question…

Why Should I Tell You?!

So You’d Start Hating On Me Eh?

So You’d Ignore Me And Make Me Feel Bad For Trying…

So I’d Tend To Give Up ‘Cause It “Seems” What I’m Doing Is Bad When It’s NOT!?

Oh, Hell No! (In Chris Tucker’s Voice)

I’ve Actually Been In This Shoe A Couple Of Times, Like When I Was Learning Spanish – And I Wanted To Teach It… I Created A Group For It And Sent The Link To Almost Everyone Of My Relatable Contacts_Of About 30+ Persons ‡ Only 2 Joined And Was Serious, The Rest?…

Well, All Wonders Of Snubbing Was Initiated.

You Know, I Get It If You Ain’t Interested In “Spanish” … I mean, Who Gives The F-Word… I Get If You Think It’s A Stupid And A Rubbish Language… But Still…

You’re Probably Thinking Why I’m Using Those Words Eh?… Well, Those Words Were The Exact Terms My Dad Used…

And Of A Fact, It Has Affected Me… Most Times I Just Wish I Could Have Reversed Time And Kept My Zeals To My Self… 😔

Just Keep That Life Plan To Yourself 🤐🤫 … You Ain’t Gonna Die! 😬

I’ve Learnt, Noticed And Realised This Phenomenal Occurence In Humans, As a Fact;

I’m Going To Be Really Plain Here: – We Don’t Like To Support – FACT!

If We Do, Mostly, We’re Either Expecting A Favour, Or We’re Doing It ‘Cause The Person We’re Doing It For Is Rich Or In A Higher Position – A Perfect Example Is The Elections 👀

When I Started This Blog, It Wasn’t Even Up To A Week And My “Friend” 😒 Was Already Calling It “Yeye” (That’s Yoruba For “Useless” Or “Senseless”). I Created A Facebook Page For It And Sent The Link To Him To Like, And His Exact Words Were “u go just carry ur empty head send me friend request bcos u want me to like yeye page” – My Own Childhood Friend! 😒😑

See Why I Keep Saying I Don’t Want “Friends” 🙄

Might Be a Joke Though, Or Is It?!… But Still Not Liking The Page After The Insult, Definitely Isn’t…

I’m A Guy That Smiles And Laughs For No Specific Reason – I Laugh Alot – But When In Public… I Tend To Frown On Purpose (Sometimes, It’s Just Hunger 😅)

Someone Once Approached Me And Asked Why I Like To Frown _ I Replied – I Don’t Want Friends”. (There’s More To That Though)

Having A Lot Of Friends May Have An Advantage To It, But Trust Me, It Can Never Ever Pay!… Ever!

The Word “Friends” _ To Me, Means Trouble, Storms, Unnecessary Headaches!… I Mean;

† Friends Making Out With Friends’ LoversA Daily Occurence, Repeated Over And Over 🤦‍♂️

Thoughts 💭 On Reality 😐😶

† Back StabbersLike For Real, Only Someone You Trust To Hold Your Back Can Stab You In It… Have You Ever Thought Of That?! 🤔

† Leaked Secrets C’mon!, You Think Secrets Just Fly Out Of Your Mind And Broadcast Itself?!… Who Did You Tell?… Who Has Access To Where You Kept Your Secret Files?… Who Did You Entrust Your Codes To?!

A Stranger Can’t Just Look At You And Know Your Password… Someone Who Doesn’t Know You Can’t Just Break Into Your Home 🏡C’mon!… A Random Restaurant Can’t Poison You!… Someone You “Trust” Did!

Seriously, Yoruba Adages Topped This When It Said “Ẹyin kulé ni ọ̀tá Wá, Inú Ilé Ní Aseni ń Gbé” Which Is “Our Enemies Are At Our Backyards, But The Perpetraitors(see what I did there😅) Are Living Right In With Us!.

They Eat With You, Drink With You, Party With You, Play With You, Sleep With You, Heck!, Even Pray For You!…

I’m Not Saying Not To Have Friends, But Having A Lot Is Bad For Your Health, Literally! 👀

DID YOU KNOW?: Studies Have Shown ~ And I Can Personally Assure You ~ That Plans, Dreams, & Wishes You Tell People Has A 70 – 80% Likely Chance Of Not Coming To Fruition!

I Know Everyone Needs Someone To Listen… We All Feel To Tell Someone Everything… But Still…

Don’t Tell People What Your Plan Is… Show Them What Your Plan Was… – Spizzerinctum™

† Planning Your Own House?, Let The House Warming Ring The Bells

† Planning On Your Marriage?, Your Invitation Card After You’re FULLY Prepared Should Do!

† Having A Scholarship Or Travelling Abroad?, So Long They Ain’t The Ones Sponsoring You – Use Your foreign Number To Tell Them (If They Hating Now, They Was Gonn’ Hate Before You LeftFACT!)

Not Everyone Is Your Friend!, Even Sometimes Family! – FACT!
