Let me allude!
Every one is rushing to get a piece of land, not only that to put up a structure that’s really a prestige. But as it happens, there are guys who know how to take fast routes to get rich.
Tonny had such desire so when he met Tarrus, he shared the big dream he had of owning a real estate, a bungalow and a tinted car. Unfortunately, he didn’t know how to achieve this dream. Tonny being a brilliant man though from a poor background suggested they apply a loan and seek for genuinely acquired land. It would take a long procedure, and so Tarrus doubted whether they will ever be get to that dream. He spoke to his other boys about it and in a weeks time all and sundry got to know his plans.
A month late Tarrus met Colly and he suggested to him that an agent would sell him a plot at a cheap price little did he know that he was being led to a swindlers trap. He met the agents in secret and with a guarantee he was declared a landlord but the papers would wait. He seized sharing his plans with Tonny who took a loan and was check with the lands commission for a genuine land.
In one year time Tarrus owned a storey, his dream was in his hands, a reality. Least did he know it was short lived. He enjoyed rent for two years, and then tragedy struck one Monday morning when the genuine land lord arrived with the police and a charges sheet. Tarrus soon lost millions of money he had spent with the land sellers cartels in the city.
One year later, he was humbled and called Tonny who had cleared with the bank and now owned a hostel next to a public university.
Today’s reflection is a Biblical allusion my reader. Jesus Christ, the wisest man spoke of two men, a fool and a wise man. One who took a short, fast route and build on the sand as the other struggled digging the rock, lastly the rains tested their structure and gosh! the fools house fell and it was a terrible fall!
Reflect on this, are you building on the sand, taking short cuts in life?
Are you taking other partner’s spouses instead of seeking to have your family?
Do you choose to rig votes, or cheat in exams? Do you cheat your spouse for a nights pleasure? All these possessions are short lived, soon you will have a great loss!
And if you are not a believer, you trust your possessions or property, you are building on the sand…your cash is but sand, your brown skin is but sand, any material thing you trust is but sand, Jesus Christ is the ROCK.
Those who believe in Christ who do his word and will are sure of eternity, we are building on the rock. Taking the long route in life and our reward is sure!
BUILD ON THE ROCK!
