When a man belives in you against the advice and counsel of your haters do everything within your power never to prove your haters right.
Sometimes I tell the people I love and show favour to , that everyone is giving me reasons to be careful with you, but please be prayerfull not to fall into their evil plans and counsel. You know they are not happy I love you and I don’t hide my love for you.
Let me give a very practical example.
During our church building project, we got to a particular stage of the building and we needed to buy a particular material that a member sells. One of the building committee members came to me and said , Daddy with all due respect sir, i want to advice against you giving that our member the contract to supply the materials we need for the current stage of the building, because he wants to do this job before leaving the church.
I said to him this work is worth millions of naira, I can’t give it to an outsider, someone within the house must do it.
I said if we give this man the contract he will take care of his house rent and children’s school fees, which I am aware is overdue.
So behind the committee, without mentioning any name, I called the man and said to him they don’t want me to give you this supply. I was told you are waiting to do it before leaving the church. He said to me this is my church for life. Where am I going to? Daddy don’t mind them. I told him Please my son help me prove them wrong.
To make a long story short, I approved the contract for him, even though he was the list qualified to do it and paid him the entire sum in millions because I want him to do it and solve his family problems.
Lo and behold he finished it, and stopped coming to church on the ground that he wants to save his marriage, that his wife has vowed never to join him in our church. That nothing can take her from her current church.
My committee on the hand said to everyone, don’t blame that man, Daddy Dont listen to advice, Daddy thinks he knows warri people more than we that lived in warri before he came to warri.
It is so painful that now I do more of listening to some of my core leaders before taking major decisions, which was not my stlye when i started the ministry. they are over protective of my well-being and the ministry resources. But i cant blame them, because it has save me the consequence of trying to help at all cost and getting hurt in the process.
I HAVE NOT CHANGED I HAVE ONLY LEARN TO LOSE MY SPINAL CORD FOR ONLY THE CHILDREN THAT WILL NOT DENY ME THEIR WHEEL CHAIR.
SO BEFORE YOU BETRAY THE MAN WHO LOVE AND TRUSTED YOU. REMEMBER YOUR HATERS WHO PREDICTED IT AND PROVE THEM WRONG.
