Our Daily Manna 21 June 2022 – CAN YOU RESIGN? In 1955, Winston Churchill, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, resigned due to poor health but remained in the House of Commons.
In 1974, Willy Brandt, Chancellor of West Germany, resigned after the Guillaume affair. Same year, Richard Nixon, President of the United States, resigned after becoming mired in the Watergate scandal and impeachment hearings.
In my country, late Dr. Tai Solarin was a man who you would call a social critic. He served as a commissioner in 1976, but resigned when he drove without a license. Again in 1988, he resigned as chairman of Peoples Bank of Nigeria when he could not perform his role.
What keeps amazing me about this man even after his death, is that he was a self-proclaimed atheist, yet he had great qualities we can learn from. Can you sincerely judge yourself without hiding your faults? Can you prescribe punishment for yourself without a master? This is the road to excellence! The Word says, the saints shall judge the world (1 Corinthians 6:2). Yea, it even declares that we shall judge angels (1 Cor.6:3).
It is only a man/woman who has judged himself/herself and daily judges himself/ herself that can judge angels. We will pray part of the Basic Scripture later! 1 Corinthians 11:31 declares that if we judge ourselves, then we would not be judged. Tai Solarin, an atheist, could resign because he drove a car without a license. The world is looking for men who are not for sale, who are honest and sound from centre to circumference, true to the heart’s core.
Men who will stand for the right even if the heavens totter and the earth reels! Dear Pastor, can you step down from the pulpit for a while? Dear child of God, can you suspend yourself as a church worker if the need arises till you fix your soul with God again? Judge yourself and watch a new you emerge!
Publilius Syrus said, “To confess a fault freely is the next thing to being innocent of it.” Tai Solarin was an atheist, yet he pruned his character. Judge yourself and have a great future! TODAY IS DAY 3 Of MONTHLY 7-DAY PRAYERS which ends with the anointing service of this Sunday!
