Your Gift Will Make A Way For You

A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: Your Gift Will Make A Way For You [27/10/2017]

A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. Proverbs 18:16. Read: Prov 22:29

In his classic book “TALENT IS NEVER  ENOUGH”, John C. Maxwell told a story of a man who came to meet him and said, sir, I love writing and I really want to be like you. Maxwell asked him, how many books have you written, he said, nothing. Maxwell advised him to go and start writing. Maxwell further said, the first book he wrote (with three chapters) took him almost a year to complete.

Many of us are just like the man above, we want to be great like the well-known men and women in the world today, yet do nothing to attain the greatness we desire. Yes, the Bible indeed says, your gift will make a room for you before the great men and women, but the Bible reading tells us how such would happen, “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men”. No matter how gifted you are, if you lack diligence in developing and putting such gift to work, the Bible says in Proverbs 12:24, The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute.


* It is not enough to wish for greatness, what you do consistently is more important in attaining true greatness.
