CELEBRATE THE FUTURE
(There’s Hope For A Brighter Tomorrow)
TO THE BIBLE
Ecclesiastes 7:10 GNB
“Never ask, “Oh, why were things so much better in the old days?” It’s not an intelligent question.”
Do you know most of the things we see today in the nations of the world are harvests of the decisions that were made in years gone by? The state of a nation today is, more often than not, a product of the choices, decisions, and actions of its past leaders. For many, their national anniversary has become a time to reflect on the past and wish for “the good old days.” Many wonder how the state of their economies remains comatose after so many years of self-determination.
Well, it may be a fact that your nation has been dominated by governments that have been indifferent to the needs of its people, but you have to make a personal choice to move forward from that. Rather than join the band of critics, naysayers, and rabble-rousers blaming and fighting their governments over the state of affairs in the country, I challenge you to be a solution-provider.
Create around you a joyful atmosphere for change, as you celebrate the hope of the glorious future that lies ahead. Be glad about the opportunities you have to make a change, and take advantage of them. If we all make the right and proper investments with the time we have today, we will reap the harvest of a more prosperous tomorrow. That hope of a better future is in itself worth celebrating.
But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
Blessed heavenly Father, I thank you for anointing my eyes to see great opportunities of service around me. Through me, my nation is positioned for success and greatness as I recognise the human needs around me, and reach out to meet those needs, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
