Your life is a rare privilege and responsibility
which you cannot shirk.
Many times when we are affected by the
adversities of life or other challenges, we wonder
about the value and meaning to life. We are so
perturbed that we begin to ask why me. It is not
right to react to the issues of our life in this
way. It is perfectly normal to ask questions. But
the questions we ask should be what and how
and not why me. What and how questions of life
evoke the spirit and desire to give service to
fellow beings and society at large.
Our life on earth is a rare privilege to serve. We
cannot see it in another light and expect to be
successful in life. If you wake up and realize you
are now on this planet earth, your life would be
best served when you make decisions along the
following lines:
• I am life
• I am privileged
• I am rare
• It is only me that is me
• I must serve
When we view our lives on the mirror of service,
we are automatic champions. We are instantly
successful. And this is regardless of where we
are coming from.
Poor family background is not an excuse for
poverty. In fact, it has been known to be the
greatest propeller for success for many of the
world’s greats.
Rich family background is not a guarantee for
success in life. In fact, we know countless
number of cases where family wealth had
become an impediment to the success of the
posterity of the family.
When we set out in life serving others, we end
up being their masters. Those you serve depend
on you and sometimes surrender happily their
wealth and sense of direction in life in your
hands to do as you please. We have seen a lot of
this in real life and in movies and books to
buttress this point.
The Saviour Jesus Christ gained all that his
Father has by serving ordinary human beings
even unto surrendering his own life.
One of the ways we can see the adversities of
our lives with an eye leading to success is to see
them as opportunities to move to the next level
in life through service. Actually, it is strongly felt
that some adversities come to us if we overstay
our welcome at a particular spot and are not
involved in the dynamic project of service. The
great Creator Himself instigates some events
that disrupt our comfort zone so that we might
march on to our glory through service and the
way we respond to the events occurring in our
The challenge of living our lives in any other way
other serving and claiming our God ordained
glory is that we could end up in hell. And hell is
when we look at the sunset of our lives and
regret about the things we have done or have
not done, especially of services not rendered or
rendered poorly.
Your lives challenges and adversities are the
schools where you learn how to live on the earth
by service. Your earth life is the school where
you learn how to live in eternity with God,
serving and praising Him. You are expected to
pass your class promotion examinations to be
promoted to the next level and service is the
examination, the homework and pretests you
need to undergo on the route to your success.
See you at the top.

  1. I’ve been surfing on-line more than three hours these days, yet I by
    no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
    It’s beautiful price sufficient for me. In my view, if all web owners
    and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet
    will be much more helpful than ever before.
