“A Global Honour”

Key Verse

“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.” Proverbs 22:29

Text — Proverbs 22:28-29


A young achiever by name John Oseni spoke at a youth convocation in Nigeria. In his speech, he gave himself a goal to be known as one of the top achievers in the world, and he is seriously working towards it. He became the first Nigerian to be listed as global child top 100 prodigies. He was listed as a global child prodigy under the technology category.

If you desire to be honoured like John Oseni, you need to work towards it. It is not by mere wishes; you must read hard and pray. If you are diligent, you will stand before kings and not mean men. Joseph in the Bible had a dream and God at the appointed time raised him up to the top; he became a prime minister in Egypt. Apart from his dream, there are desirable attributes in the life of Joseph that we can copy. He was God-fearing, holy, righteous, loving, caring, prayerful and hardworking. Today, God will honour you and lift you higher above your peers, and you will have global honour.
