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.

Friendship is like a canoe with two people in it.
It is stressful when there are two people involved in a friendship and just one person is handling the paddle meant for two people to paddle,it becomes uncomfortable,tiring,energy consuming,uninteresting and boring if only one person keeps making efforts and inputs into a friendship for the benefit of two people,if only one person keeps paddling the canoe(friendship)when there is another person who ought to paddle along side there is bound to be stagnancy as a result of the other person’s refusal to contribute in the progress of the friendship(canoe).
And friendship is not a competition, friends ought to complement, encourage, advice and inspire you rather than compete with you over progress, success and achievements. And friends don’t get intimidated by your success instead your success should be an inspiring and motivating factor to their own success and achievements.
In addition they are stepping stones who should lift you higher to achieve your dreams, goals and purpose, they ought to contribute in making your life better.
To contribute positively, inspire changes, bring out the best in you and challenge you to become a better person, this is the very essence of friendship.

Birthdays are worth celebrating because its a celebration of life and a time of merry making, having fun and enjoying ones self, but birthdays are not just a time to eat, drink, have fun and receive birthday gifts but its another 365 years added to a person’s life to live more meaningfully and better than you did in the previous year.
It is a time and new year to take steps further towards becoming a better person, a time to realize and recognize one’s talents, skills and abilities and to utilize them maximally, birthdays are a new year to discover more about yourself, your personality, your likes and dislikes and to define the kind of person you truly are, birthdays are also a new year to live a well and meaningful lifestyle to appreciate the almighty God for keeping you alive to see another new year and to utilise the new year in making positive impacts in the lives of people and the world at large starting with one person wherever you find yourself.
Birthdays are a time of reflection and stock taking period to count your achievements in the past one year to take stock of your weaknesses and mistakes and to strive to perform better than you have done in the past one year, at least to have an achievement no matter how little or insignificant it may seem to others, it maybe purchasing and owning something you’ve longed to have for a long time, a goal or a dream, starting a project, acquiring a skill or reconciling with a friend or family, getting a new job, being a member of a voluntary organization or NGO, reaching out to and visiting an orphanage home, etc.
Whatever positive thing it is that you do, birthdays are about moving forward in life, making progress, going higher than you have been in your past years and becoming a better person. So have fun, enjoy your day, be a better person in the new year,achieve your dreams and more than you than you have done in the past years and be all that God has created you to be. Cheers to a new year, you are loved. Happy Birthday♥
