Foolishness

Mr Azu and his friend Oko were arguing about their sons. Mr Azu said his son was more foolish than
Oko’s son, but Oko disagreed
so they decided to prove it.

Mr Azu called his son and told him to go to the market and buy a box of matches and the boy left without asking for money.

Then Mr Azu said “You see how foolish he is, he didn’t even ask for money”

Oko replied; “is this what you call foolishness? Wait and see”.

Then Oko called his son and told him to go home and check if he was around.

The boy took to his heels and came back panting; Papa, you no dey house, Mama say you dey
your friend place.

Do have something more foolish than this? Please share

Biding Your Time

A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out.
The Genie says, ‘I’ll give each of you just one wish.’
‘Me first, me first!’ says the admin clerk. ‘I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.’
Puff! She’s gone.
‘Me next, me next!’ says the sales rep. ‘I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.’
Puff! He’s gone.
‘OK, you’re up,’ the Genie says to the manager.
The manager says, ‘I want those two back in the office after lunch.’
Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say.

Rashidi Yekini

Few hours after his death was announced, an article on Rashidi Yekini appeared on Wikipedia chronicling his life and achievements, including the illness that would eventually end it.
Very touching is that he, perhaps, never found his place or purpose in life.
He found fame (and perhaps a measure of fortune) in football, winning a number of laurels both in Nigeria, Africa and Portugal. In his later years, he lived alone apart from his three wives and three children, battled depression and other mental disorders.
The reactions from many who knew him(?) was that of disbelief, and denial as is the case when someone hears about a death.
For many others perhaps a death(or news of one) is a reminder of what happens to our soul.
May his soul rest in peace
Being a christian, I remember a few things from the Holy Bible:

  • The soul that sinneth, it shall die. (Yes, souls die! Forget immortality).
  • All have sinned (except Christ and yet he chose to die – even though he did it to prove a few points;
    1. he loved us enough. John 15:13
    2. he can conquer death and can share this power with us)
  • Through sin came death. Romans 5:12, 6:23,
  • Through christ came freedom (Romans 5:21) from death and thereby, immortality!

And answers to a host of other life’s issues.
Of course there is a caveat. To get this offer, you have to be a friend. To be a friend, you have to do his bidding. Its easy because he has given you all knowledge with nothing hidden. All is there in the bible.
Even easier if you get a mentor and study partner the way you did back at school, and this makes the burden lighter!
I know salvation is personal, but as iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. So find a mentor (church or pastor), textbooks (a copy of the Holy Bible, for a start), partner and study to show yourself approved (2Timothy 2:15) to be a friend of God.
