YOU ARE NOT SHOWING OFF FOR BEING WHO YOU ARE AND YOU ARE NOT PROUD FOR BEING YOU BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
We are in a generation where we experience a man being termed to be “showing off” when he makes his progress visible or known to others even when the person is just being himself without being satisfied of his present state.
Listen to me, you don’t need to look beggarly or confused to make someone happy. Acting like a mediocre or pitiable is not a sign of humility.
Jesus was just fulfilling His call and ministry but the Pharisees continued to accuse Him of “showing off” neglecting the fact that He was just being who God sent him to be. He didn’t only show them He could demonstrate the power of God, He also sent those He ministered to in the absence of the Pharisees to go and tell the Pharisees in the temple what had happened by their encounter with Him.
There are young folks out there, fulfilling God’s mandate on their lives and being who God has made them but they are being accused of “showing off the power of God and His grace”. Thank God they are accused of “showing off the power of God” because I have realized that these accusers are silent when they see men who are of the world “showing off the power of the devil”.
Lately, I realize that people dislike to hear your testimony when making progress on a conquest but are happy to hear about your tribulations and frustrations when retrograding. They laugh at your tribulations in the camera and behind the scene but criticize your testimony in the open.
You owe no man an apology for progressing positively. You owe no man an explanation for being the wonder that you are.
“Do not allow the shade of your critics block the light of your success”- Bishop FEB Idahosa
I see young folks on social media publicizing immorality and people of like passion like them celebrate. Immoral post gets more likes, shares, comments and less criticisms while posts of a young folks that is succeeding on a conquest and relating a rightful mindset gets lots of corrections and critics from people of his kind. What a wickedness I have seen under the sun.
You don’t need to snap picture in the dustbin to tell us you are humble neither do you have to snap in Miamia to show that you are proud. Just be who are, where you are.
Don’t try and get people’s attention by being who you are not because you will have to continue faking it to retain the attention of men which may be costly all along.
Hear me sir and ma, you can’t be a “fault-finder” and be a “pathfinder” at the same time, you can only be one. If you see a man making progress, appreciate them not only in your heart and closet. Don’t compete with them, commend them and connect to them.
You can’t attract in the secret what you criticized in the open. You can’t desire in the secret, what you despised in the open. You can’t connect in the secret, what you condemn in the open. Listen to me, all these, “kole wark”.
