"Nawa o, common 2000 Naira you cannot afford, I am tired of all this your ways, for me making money is easy, the problem is you are not sharp, you are just too slow"
Jide felt very sad after Kunle, his best friend tongue lashed him. He needed the money to attend a seminar on network marketing so he could start earning some money. He wasn't lazy or slow, things were not just working for him at the moment. Jide approached his next door neighbour and begged for the money he needed and he was given.
Jide threw all of himself into the network marketing business and in 5 months, he was earning as much as 600,000 Naira a day. Kunle, his best friend was also doing well but he did not have the kind of money Jide had. Kunle finally realised that Jide was not slow and as a matter of fact, he was way sharper than him financially.
The bible says in Ecclesiastes 9:11 (ESV)
Again I saw that under the sun the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to the intelligent, nor favor to those with knowledge, but time and chance happen to them all.
Don't think other people are foolish because you are doing very well right now and they are not, they may just be going through process. Life is full of ups and downs, someone up today may be down tomorrow. Be careful how you treat people when you feel you have arrived and don't ever conclude about anybody or say words that would count against you in the future.
Some people who look like nothing today may be the big shots of tomorrow. Treat everyone with respect because you don't know who God will use for you. May God grant us all wisdom and common sense in Jesus name. Amen
