LIVE A LIFE OF CONTRIBUTION
We all are created with the desire to be involved actively in life, to make meaningful impact and contributions. And when this desire is not fulfilled, life becomes stale. I remember when I went on an outing with some friends, it was on a Sunday and apparently I was just there to be entertained because I didn't have enough cash on me. So during the course of the outing, we ran out of cash and one of us willfully added his money to augment with what we had budgeted. And when the outing got more exciting, someone else also added extra money to what we had so we could actually buy alot of things. It was then, I realized that I was left out and I asked myself the question, "Johnson or whatever you call yourself 😁, what have you contributed to this outing?" Well, I couldn't answer this question because I knew I hadn't contributed anything. And this is some of us going through life not making any impact, not contributing anything to this world and within us we know we are living below par. We know we are just being mediocre and we can't help being average. But I challenge you today to take the decision to LIVE A LIFE OF CONTRIBUTION! In your school, place of worship, workplace, family, home, society, in people's lives and wherever you find yourself, ensure you make contributions. It could be a financial contribution, it could be being physically present when you are needed, it could be giving support, useful ideas, suggestions, advice etc. Have you ever helped an elderly person carry a load or help a little child do something difficult? These little services come with great fulfillment and joy. And this can only come when we are living life with a sense of purpose. Someone said something I love, "There are three kinds of people in this world: people who make it happen, people who watch things happens, and people who don't know what happened." So which category are you? I know you are amongst the people who are willing to make things happen! Now, back to my story, after resolving within myself I decided to make a contribution no matter how little it was. And guess what, after the outing, I paid the transport fare for everyone as we went back to town. The transport fare was small relative to what others had contributed during the outing but I gave the little I had and it was my own contribution. And the story of that day would never be complete without having my name mentioned! Before I end, I'll like you to know and affirm that you have alot God has placed in you to contribute to this world we are in. My goal in life is to live a life that will be remembered! A life of achievements and success. Filled with stories of the battles I won, the challenges I overcame, the difficulties I pulled through and the contributions I have made to this world. And I know at the end of the day, God will smile down from heaven because of my sake. Mon Dieu est bon! Thanks for reading, I am Johnson Crystal. #HopefulMeNetwork #LiveALifeOfContribution
