You Are Living For Others

In most African countries/communities, the evening is sometimes spent to share stories. Parents tell their children different stories. At the end of each story, lessons are brought out and taught the young ones. By these stories, they know what to do and those things to run away from.
In bookstores today, there are story books as well. This ranges from autobiography, biography, fiction, etc. To every discerning heart, there is always a lesson or two to learn in each. Every story book, there are characters who are good people and worthy of emulation and bad ones who are so bad that a remembrance of their names will generate fear or remorse or hatred. Such people’s ways of life are never to be followed because of what they stand for.
Do you ever think of this that, you are living for others? Whichever way you look at it, it is the truth. You are in a generation, who you are and what your do will surely impact your community (generation) positively or negatively.
You are under the watchful eyes of all the people you come across daily. This begins from your home. You are living for those around you. You are either a good or bad example. You are either hot or cold. People may tell you or not. Directly or indirectly, you are affecting others. Recently, have you read or heard about something near or far? What is your opinion of such people? Good or bad?
What can you introduce as good quality into your life from that? What do you detest most in it? Such people lived or are living for you as you are also living for others.
People will hear and / read about you. What impressions are they going to have about you? Have you considered this? Do you think about this? What history are you writing about yourself?
In your present place of work, if you are transferred to another place, what will people say? Will anybody miss you? Will someone be happy because you are no longer with him or her? Will someone weep for your absence? Will your absence create a “vacuum difficult to fill”? As Christians
“We should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and savior Jesus Christ” Titus2:12 New King James Version.
Every Christian must
“Be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” I Timothy 4: 12 New King James Version.
Finally, to live for others as a Christian, you must,
“Do all things without complaining and disputing, that you may become blameless,
And harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life…” Philippians 4:14 -16a (NKJV).
May the Lord grant you and me the grace, power and spirit to live for others according to the will of God . (Amen).



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Thank you so much Olawale for your wonderful insights into the story-telling traditions of Africa. And yes, we are each "living stones' and our lives are indeed stories or 'testaments' which are being written daily as we live for God in this unique time in history which He has gracious given us. This is a powerful article. Thank you, again!

Olawale, You present some good thoughts on our Christian walk. We need reminders often to walk as the light of the world. Especially in this day, there is so much darkness. May the lost see the Light of Christ in our lives. Amen ~shalom
