How to solve the riddle or the mess called Nigeria is the earnest desire upon every thinking Nigeria.
Let’s reflect upon Covey’s words, “that personal victory precedes public victory.”
Have you considered how futile it is for a man suffering from high fever tossing in his bed thinking that finding a cool patch of the bed will relieve him? The high fever cannot abate until the germs within have been destroyed. So must it be for every Nigerian to first deal with the self-worship within before we can genuine seek change on the outside!
To the same point, in Matthew 23:25, Jesus said ‘woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self indulgence.’
Each of us needs to be freed from the inner cancer of sin, and self worship if we are to impact or change the external! This is food for thought for the week. Shalom.
