SCRIPTURE: And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured. Genesis 39:5-7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One of the greatest determinants of a person’s destiny is character.
I once heard the story of a young man who went to an airport to board a flight. While entering the aircraft, he saw an old man who was struggling with his luggage and opted to assist the man carry the luggage.
The old man was amazed that there were still such humble young men in our world. While they were conversing, the young man mentioned a company in Lagos, Nigeria, as one of his clients that he made supplies to. Unknown to him, the old man’s son was the Managing Director (MD) of that company. The company owed him some money in millions of Naira. After their conversation, the old man gave him his complimentary card.
When the young man met with the MD of the company, he showed him the complimentary card. The MD was excited that the young man met his father. Immediately, his money was released and more business opportunities were given to him, all on the frequency of good character.
Beloved, one of the greatest determinants of a person’s destiny is character. There is a character that multiplies opportunities and there is a character that diminishes opportunities. Always uphold a good character.
Remember this: One of the greatest determinants of a person’s destiny is character.
1. Be kind to everyone irrespective of their status or background.
2. Refuse to allow the negative character of others to influence yours.
