SCRIPTURE: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Those who possess quality character magnetise favour.
Some years ago, my mother told us of a marriage custom that was in vogue in her youthful days. She said that when a man wanted to marry a lady, they would send the lady on a visit to the fiancé’s family house for character assessment. One of the tests was for her to sweep one of the rooms in the house. Unknown to her, they would scatter some money under the bed and at some hidden corners of the room.
In the course of sweeping, the lady would see the money, and if she was of a questionable character, she would steal the money thinking that they were lost and forgotten money or that God had favoured her. Afterwards, the news would go around the village that she was a thief and not marriageable. But if she was able to overcome the test, she would be married.
There are people who have closed their destinies on the frequency of character bankruptcy. But those who possess quality character magnetise favour. Beloved, struggle for quality character and favour will struggle for you.
Remember this: Those who possess quality character magnetise favour.
1. Make a personal assessment of your character and change where necessary.
2. Let the Word of God be your guide in every action you want to take.
3. Always dwell in the atmosphere of God’s Presence so you can assimilate His Nature.
