  • Theme: The path to greatness


    Written by Schadrac Junior Ondongo Bongo


    Nature teaches us a lot about how our world works in general, life and established laws in particular.

    When we put a seed on the ground under conditions of mild temperature and high humidity, the seed germinates. The seedling grows into a young plant with roots, stem, leaves and buds. This new plant belongs to the same species as the mother plant from which it came.

    The process for the seed to reach maturity (from seed to plant while bearing fruit) can seen as the path to greatness. And the result of this is that, the seed that has reached maturity serves others through its fruits.

    Greatness does not necessarily require having a great financial or material heritage, although this is a sign of greatness. But it lies in the ability we have to serve other people. Do you want to be greater? See how far you can serve other people.

    The work we do to achieve greatness also depends on the paths we take. Hence, greatness is, therefore, not a position of responsibility or a particle of authority that we have, but greatness is linked to the path we have followed to reach this supposed greatness.

    People say, all roads lead to Rome, that is to say, regardless of the path or routes we take, the importance is to reach the goal, or whatever the processes differ a little, the essential is to achieve the same goal, or there are often many ways to achieve a certain result or do something.

    But all things are lawful for me, but not all things are profitable. Because if you use the glassy paths to achieve greatness, it will catch up with you sooner or later.

    Proverbs:14
    12 There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.

    Proverbs:28
    18 The one whose walk is blameless is kept safe, but the one whose ways are perverse will fall into the pit.

    Proverb 10:2; Matthew 7:14.


    Jesus Christ said: 
    Matthew:20 Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave.

    Matthew:23
    11 The greatest among you will be your servant.
    12 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.


    A servant is the one who serves another, providing help in some manner. It's a person who dedicates his life to God.

    And can only be great one who serves others in a given field. The most important man in the history of mankind (Jesus Christ) was a servant. He said, the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many (Matthew 20:28).

    Philippians:2
    5 In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:

    6 Who, being in very nature[a] God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; 7 rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature[b] of a servant, being made in human likeness.

     8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! 9 Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

    Saul of Tarsus persecuted church. But when he met Jesus Christ (Acts 9:3-5) his life was changed. And the Lord said to Ananias about Paul: Acts :9
    ”15 But the Lord said to Ananias, “Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. 16 I will show him how much he must suffer for my name.

    He's the one who wrote a lot of books of the New Testament; he's the one who revealed a lot of mysteries... And he says clearly, I worked harder than all of them (1Corinthians15:10). But I'm the least of the apostles (1 Corinthians 15:9); I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people (Ephesians 3:8). His path to greatness was through being a servant of others.

    Biblical references speaking of humility as the path to greatness: James 4:10; 1 Pierre 5:6...

  •   A  LETTER TO DAVID FROM KING SAUL

     

    Dear David Son of Jesse

     

    My attention is drawn to your recent spectacular victory against the Philistine giant Goliath.  On behalf of the entire leadership of Israel allow me to sincerely apologize for underestimating your ability to  defeat this enemy of  Israel who had openly intimated the entire army for 40 days and nights. 

    We are still in awe of your exceptional faith  in God and meticulous  creativity that enabled you kill Goliath with a simple shepherd sling.  My military commanders are in serious discussion on how to in future incorporate your new found skills in our national army fighting strategy. David, you’ve done as proud.

    Having said  that I wanted you to know of my decision to recruit you in my Jerusalem Palace Choir as my personal entertainment manager. Many have attested of your singing and playing of the cymbal as you took care of your father’s sheep in the wilderness something which l want to experience as a king.

    As you join my team, I want to assure you that I will do all that is necessary to help  you reach higher heights in sharpening your talent as a giant killer, singer and worshiper of  true God.

    Finally my son,  you need to know that am a  spear throwing king hence don’t be surprised when you see me practicing at the palace. It’s part of my lifestyle and way of unwinding.

    That being said I look forward to seeing you soon son of Jesse the giant killer.

    Yours sincerely

    The one and Only King of Israel - King Saul  -

     

     

     

     

    Dear King Saul

       Shalom  my King and hope this finds you well.  I write in response to a recent incident that has left me asking so many  answered questions.  As your son am still in shock concerning your attempt to kill me using a spear the other day.   Were it not for my dodging skills I would be dead by now.  As I recall,  I know I was  in a quite good  position to throw the spear back but the fear of God in me has always reminded me  “ touch not the anointed one of God”.

    You know in two incident where I was in position to strike you but the Lord would not allow me to that for whatever a man soweth that will he reap.

    Remember also I am a  firm believer of the song, weeping may endure for  a night but joy comes in the morning hence I will not revenge.

    Finally be assured of my loyalty to you until the fullness of time of God’s promotion comes .

    Your son

    David – in the cave
