Welcome to the second half of the year! I remember saying this years ago: “We often miss opportunity because it’s dressed in overalls and looks like work.” Then I concluded that inspiration is a guest that does not willingly visit the lazy. This is how men and women become poor and drift into lack. Even if you are RETIRED, remember you must REFIRE because you are not TIRED. To kill DEMOTION, “put all excuses aside and remember this: “YOU are capable” (Zig Ziglar). Some years ago, someone jokingly sent me a write-up on the quickest formula to be poor:

1. Complain about everything.

2. Pass over opportunities repeatedly and consistently thinking all are scams.

3. Remain at one spot and resist change.

4. Criticize and look down on risk takers.

5. Ignore emerging technologies and breakthroughs.

If you can practice these five things seriously, you will seriously and ‘successfully’ become an “award-winning” poor/ broke person! No wonder Steven Grayhm noted: “Excuses are the tools with which persons with no purpose in view, build for themselves great monuments of nothing.” Wow!

MONUMENTS OF NOTHING! God forbid! Indeed, laziness travels so slowly that poverty soon overtakes him. Catch this: “A life of leisure and a life of laziness are two things. There will be sleeping enough in the grave” (Benjamin Franklin). Close with this scripture: Prov. 10:4 – “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.” God forbid! Hear Thomas Taylor: “Too many young people itch for what they want without scratching for it.” Use today’s devotional to scratch for the things you desire!

Start preparing for the upcoming WORLDWIDE 14-day fasting programme (Starts July 10th-July 23rd)! Even if you are retired, find something to do. I see you living long to eat the fruit of your labour in Jesus name. (Help someone partake in the upcoming 14-day fasting programme! Give out these ODM and “War Against Haman – 17” copies now!).
