LETTER TO MY SON: BEING BETTER THAN ME IS THE LEAST YOU CAN EVER BE PART 1 BY MASTERPIECE DAVID OLAWADE
It gladdens my heart that I’m writing you again to emphasize some of the prospects I shared with you sometimes ago. You know your exploits, impacts and relevance mean a lot to me. We would both be a failure if you fail to fulfill destiny maximally.
Listen to me champ, if you see my achievement in career, ministry and marriage as the standard to your success, that’s your first step to failure. Don’t try to match up with what I have done or what I’m doing, see beyond it and take it as a starting point for your conquest.
I know there are some opportunities I have made available to you that I never had access to while growing up, please do well to utilize and maximize them. As time goes on, I will share with you areas of my life where I failed and took with negligence before getting over them. These affected my progress to an extent but glory to God that I’m who and what I am today.
I can relate to how you feel as a teenager, the exurberances and peer pressure would seduce you but they are not more than what you can overcome. I also faced some, gave in to some, overcame some and many lessons were learnt. You don’t have to learn from negative experiences, all you need do is to be discipline and take responsibility.
I know how you feel those lonely nights and that early mornings when your body does “gim gim”. It’s a craving that shouldn’t be fed for the now. Don’t give in to “porno or masto”, I believe you understand my terms boy. Moments when rain falls and you feel cold as you imagine a company.
Don’t give in to do stuffs that aren’t convenient, the urges are signs that your hormones are getting ready for the real day and the appointed time.
Do well to respect the opposite sex ranging from your sister, your peer group and your future spouse. Defend them and don’t make them feel irrelevant. I know you must have heard that they are “weaker vessels”. Truly if they are weaker that proves the point that you are also weak and both needs the strength of God.
Champ, don’t be moved when some folks present to you immoral acts like smoking, clubbing and getting high on alcoholic beverages. Listen to my directives more because the folks around you are only privileged to experience one side of life that they don’t want to let go.
Why you should give attention to my words more is because I have been privileged to experience both sides of life, the good and the bad but I know that which is better.
Listen my prince, if you want to get high in the right earnest, you don’t need to go far or haywire to get that done, you only need to draw from within you. Inside you is a brewery and a wine press, the Holy Ghost is the bartender to give you as much as you desire. I tell you, this wine is never stale, just a shot of it would intoxicate you to do the supernatural.
I was a drunkard on the other side of life before I found this kind of level. When I discover this one, the difference is clear and I became a drunken master per time. I carry this brewery every where I go, I stagger and feel intoxicated time after time. There is no better way than this my son.
Some of your folks would call you small boy for not doing what they are doing but they are indeed the small boys. Bigger boys represent the kingdom, engage kingdom principle and demonstrate the supernatural as a lifestyle.
