Poverty by logadims: 9:05am On Jun 02, 2016
poverty, the prize and end-point of laziness. It comes upon you like a mighty flood. Just like hiv/aids, it is transmitted from one person to another though not sexually but mentally. It grows gradually into the comes and marrows like cancer and finally to abject poverty.
when drowned/swallowed just like an iron thrown into an ocean, it takes mental liberation, visitation, transformation and most importantly spiritual and super-natural purification to be delivered from it's claws, bondage and captivity.
A well known adage says 'a wise man learns from the mistakes and experience of others. Haven seen laziness render potential, gifted and talented men and women useless, fools still allow themselves to be made victims of the circumstance.
When asked. What is the cause? We blame the cause of our predicament and disastrous outcome to our ancestors, parents, friends...etc. Maybe you take the likes of Charlie Chaplin, J.K Rowlins, Jim Carey, Frank O' Dea, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey...etc. They were men and women born into the families of poor parents and backgrounds, but they had this decision: NEVER TO REMAIN VICTIMS OF THE CIRCUMSTANCE BUT VICTORS OVER THE CIRCUMSTANCE. Guess what happened? They SUCCEEDED.
You want to know your problem? Then look into the mirror. Until we stop blaming our environment and start putting the blame on ourselves, then we will never get out of it(poverty).
Some use the scripture which says 'the love of money is the root of all evil(1Tim 6:10). Forgetting the scriptures like (Prov 20:13) and (Prov 6:11). Even Christ himself was made poor so that we might become rich (2Cor 8:9). This is to say that; he doesn't want to see any of us wallowing in Poverty.
finally, formula to success is God+Hardwork-Laziness/procastination=Success. For it is written, if any is not willing to work, let him not eat (2Thes 3:10)
