Hello, good to have you here once again. If you read the last post, you’d recall the goodnews. Well, if you didn’t, catch it here.
This is the first post from our new writer and I hope you learn from it as I did.
From: SAM’S NOTES
“If I have seen farther than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.” – Sir Isaac Newton
In his letter to his fellow scientist Robert Hooke in 1675, Newton disclosed that he had been able to discover more about the universe than others, because he was working in the light of discoveries made by fellow scientists, either in his own time or earlier.”
Bishop David Oyedepo will normally say, before he went into full time ministry he had read thirty-nine autobiographies of successful ministries and when he came in full time he’s already thirty nine years ahead of others.
This follows the principle revealed by King Solomon in Proverbs 20:29;
“The glory of young men is their strength; of old men, their experience.” (TLB)
This verse of scripture reveals a key that if when understood and employed accurately will lead to speed over time.
Because youths are people with vigour, but in most cases find themselves dispensing it on things that doesn’t contribute a great deal to their destinies or purpose, there is a need for an orientation on how best to run the race of life and make the most of it.
And also, old men because of the knowledge they have acquired over time, they have an edge of experience, which most youth are devoid of.
King Solomon by wisdom now offers a confluence where experience meets strength, and that if a youth whose glory is in his strength can tap into the riches of the experiences of old men, this combination will lead to speed!
But caution here, because young fools too also grow old, however wisdom is justified by her children (results).
This same principle is revealed in the the book of Hebrews 6:12 and revealed also is the kind of people we should imitate;
“That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.” (KJV)
