SCRIPTURAL FOCUS: “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with each other.” Mark 9:50 NIV
TODAY’S THOUGHT: “When quality is lost, relevance is reduced and can even be forgotten.”
Character is good, but when it loses quality and becomes wild, it becomes detrimental and a major drawback to the fulfillment of destiny. Salt represents character. Our character should always align with God’s provision for righteous living. By definition character is the summation of a person that is revealed in the way he/she responds to issues. By extension, Godly character is the kind that pleases God. We are being encouraged today to uphold and maintain the goodness of our heart no matter the circumstances. Don’t allow the insensitivity of people make you lose yourself and give people the chance to say nonsense about the God that you serve and represent. Perhaps your character is deflated and needs reconstructing, there is hope. You can take a U-turn for the better and start doing the right thing. Man becomes useless when he tells himself and accepts that he/she is useless, it doesn’t matter what anyone thinks of you. You can correct it by acting right, so long as you are on the right path with God, no man can displace you from your possession.
The matter of character is a serious one, to remain important character is needed. Whenever character fails, other areas suffer the loss as well. In the race to survive and carry-out our purpose comprehensively in the earth, Godly and sound character is a major tool for sustenance. The way the human brain enhances performance and productivity in humans that is how vital character is. Have you ever wondered why a business project or an individual with so much potential to break forth barely survived and didn’t make much impact. This is traceable to character. Character is a powerful tool that the enemy uses to destroy a lot of projects. Don’t assume you’re better than every other person; it will only cage the significant input of others around you that will aid your growth. Everyone has something good to offer that will make the world around you go round. Don’t hold back from being good, love one another and be genuinely concern about the needs of others. You’re to maintain your goodness, because sometimes the experience might be ugly, but you don’t deprive yourself and others of your goodness because of one person’s moment of ungratefulness and foolishness.
If you know what is good. Do it and keep doing it. Don’t lose yourself brethren, it pays to be good.
Always re-exam yourself to ensure that you’re not erring, be open to correction. Moments of offense are moments to speak wisely and act discreetly and never stop something good because someone is against it.
I decree in the name of Jesus that your life will not lose its value. You’ll be relevant to God and to your world. The blessings of God rest on you and give you peace.
