7 Ways To Be A Better Person

Published May 21, 2014 by WAREPAMOR SAMMY

All I’ve ever wanted is to be a better person and I’m sure everyone desires to be better than they were in the past.

So I will be sharing with you few tips to becoming a better person.

1) Forgive: Most time people think holding grudges against a person is a way of punishing those who offend them, but that actually happens in the reverse they are actually punishing themselves.

Forgiving frees the mind off the heavy burden of hurt,anger,hatred it sets a prisoner free and later realising the prisoner was you. I know how it feels to be deeply hurt,treated badly and rejected Matt 6:14-15 says” for if we forgive men their trespasses our heavenly father will also forgive us but if we don’t forgive neither will God forgive us our trespasses”.

And a friend once said to us in a gathering back in school,She said “Prepare your mind to forgive even before the hurt comes so that way it will be easier to forgive” Since God forgives us daily let us also forgive others and let the matter go.

Be You
Be Yourself

2) Be Yourself: There’s way too much of fakery out there,too many people trying to be like,act like and sound like someone else. One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make everyone be like someone else. Be yourself,be original, Be You.

Be HumBLE

Stay Humble

3) Be Humble: Humility takes a man to the top and paves way for him ,so whether at work, at home or at school be humble James 4:10 says “Humbles yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time

 

 

4) Self Control: Most times we find ourselves in situations when we are tempted to react offensively not minding who we are hurting by our actions or do things over board.

Having self control puts us in check and will help you to refrain from having certain unhealthy eating patterns,relationships,friendships,refraining from saying certain things even when angry,Someone like me whose anger is as bad as the hulk or even exceedingly more than the hulk,it takes the grace of God to calm me down.

I have realized how bad and messy things could go wrong if I don’t have control over my anger, So I apply self control.  Starting it might not be an easy job but with time you can train yourself to have control over your emotions,appetite,anger e.t.c.

Hope Alive

Be Hopeful

5) Be Hopeful: Always look at the brighter side of life, even though things may not be working as you want now and situations around you are unpleasant, be hopeful and expect that better things will come to you, that positive changes will come into your life and in your family. Be hopeful.

6) Put a smile☺ on someone’s face: Sometimes our blessings in life comes as a result of being a blessing first to the next person. A candle never looses its light by giving light to another candle so take your candle go light your world and put a smile on someone’s face.
A word of encouragement or advice,a kind gesture,a simple simple show of concern to know how well the next person is doing can go a long way in putting smiles in the face of the person.

7) Associate With People Who Inspire You: Evil communications corrupts good manners. Avoid the company of people who bring you down with their words,people who live average normal lives and talk down your aspirations,intentions and ambitions.

Stop sharing your dreams,goals and visions with people who would tell you how bigger than you and impossible your ambitions are.
In Gen 37:5-20 Joseph told his “brothers” his dreams,they were filled with envy and jealous,they hated him and planned to kill him to ensure his dreams doesn’t come to pass. Associate with people who bring out something good in you

The Foolish Master Builder

Published May 4, 2014 by WAREPAMOR SAMMY

Once upon a time there lived a man called Bankole, whose occupation was building and construction.

Bankole was a diligent and hardworking man focused on his business always, ensuring he satisfies the demands of his clients. Though bankole wasn’t living in a comfortable well furnished home, he always believed that with hard work, efficiency and faith in God one day he would earn enough money to build for himself, his wife and children a beautiful, comfortable and tastefully well furnished home.

News about his satisfactory trust worthy and good business dealings and reputation began to spread as one satisfied client introduced him to another client who introduced him to another bigger client. Bankole was really excited and happy that the years of his hard work and labour was gradually paying off, he could see his dreams and plans coming to pass gradually as he was becoming successful with his business.

Bankole always wished that he would be invited to the opening ceremonies of the houses he had built but was never invited. One day one of his big clients who had introduced him to other clients requested that he build a master piece which is more expensive and bigger than the other buildings bankole had ever built, he wondered what such a big building would be needed for, perhaps an hotel or a guest house he thought to himself.

In a discussion with his friend’s bankole informed his friend’s about his clients request for a high cost building with a complex architectural design and asked what they thought such a building will be needed for, it really should not be your concern one of his friend’s said, do your job and make your money another added, now is the time to make your money and get rich you can use inferior quality materials after all they trust you and won’t know it, the third said to him.

After much thought and consideration of his friend’s , he decided to use lower quality building materials in the construction of the building requested by his client, saving a large part of the money for himself. After constructing the building,surprisingly the client invited him for the opening ceremony and he wondered why and on getting into the building he saw lots of big men and women standing at the entrance of the building, immediately his client called out to him to come and stand in the front of the building and though he was confused as to why he was called he walked to the entrance of the building and his client announced to the congregation saying” This House belongs to mr bankole the builder of this house, I am giving this house to you mr bankole as a gift for you and your family to live in.

Moral of the story: Gal 6:9 Let us not be weary in well doing, for in due season we shall reap if we faint not.
