02 Oct 2021 : RISING ABOVE THE AVERAGE LIFE – Proverbs 22:29

When you look in the Bible, you will find out that God generally groups people into three classes while the world groups people into two.

First under the world grouping is the Average Class and majority of people find themselves there. Most people will live life averagely by doing just enough to survive. There is a survival level of life in every field. There are pastors today that are pastoring just to eat. Some of them wonder what other pastors that give their best to the ministry are doing. Right from the time that God called me, if all I wanted was to eat, my certificate offered me a better option than when God placed a calling on my life. So, there is not going to come a time in my life now that I will be running church to eat.

A young man went to the church of one of my friends, saw the church and said, “Ah, this church is big enough for a man to eat!” Such a person doesn’t have a vision, rather he has an appetite. There are people that are running businesses to eat, not for destiny or a vision. Such people don’t mind whether they cheat people as long as they have enough money and food is on their table. There are people that go into politics to eat and not to better the lives of the people who elected them. You find them everywhere. Those are average class people, don’t be among them. 

Make up your mind to give your best everywhere you find yourself. Always aim for the top and don’t settle for an average life.

PRAYER: Lord, rid me of every mindset that wants me to settle for an average life in Jesus’ name.
