The counselor writing on the topic ‘how to rate one’s day’, said having a nice day isn’t only about waking up, praying and heading off to a good day, but the little niceness we invest in others contribute to the feel-good factor of a nice day and the rewards are enormous.
“HOW DO YOU RATE YOUR DAY?
By Counselor Adofoli
How do you determine today is a good one or not? Mostly we do that depending on the outcome of the day. We do that based on the events that occurred in the day.
For example, when one loses a dear one in an accident or tragedy on a particular day, we don’t only tag the day as a bad one but we also add “black” to the day.
So, if someone loses a dear one on Friday, he or she calls the day “black Friday” due to the loss. Same way we determine or judge a day as a good one when we receive a surprise call with good news, win a lottery or raffle, get a contract or appointment.
What I have observed is, many people wake up and just pray for something good or great to happen each day and the outcome determines the day.
We forget that we are like farmers, what we sow is what we are likely to reap. Many of these harvests you wait to reap, you didn’t sow anything for it.
The scripture says in Genesis 8:22 (GNT) “As long as the world exists, there will be a time for planting and a time for harvest. There will always be cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night.”
From today, judge each day by the seeds you planted instead of by its harvest. If you want people to like you, if you want people to be your friends, sow niceness each day. Be nice to people. Those who complain they don’t have friends are not nice to people, and those that no man or woman is coming their way or proposing to them are people who are not nice.
If you are looking for a harvest of kindness, you should sow a seed of kindness. Be kind to people, instead of waiting for surprise calls which is not guaranteed, be kind to someone who is in need. When you learn to help others, God will make help available for you. When you give to others, God will give to you or cause someone to give to you.
If you are looking for someone to help you, sow a seed of help. Help someone when you wake up today. Whilst you sow help, a harvest of help will be on its way.
The fact about sowing is that, you might not get the harvest the very day but you are sure of it in the future to come. Again, you don’t get the same amount you sow, you get bigger than that.
Imagine how rich your life will be when you seize the opportunity to sow each day. Many of the people you call successful, rich, well to do etc sowed each day. The truth of the matter is, it’s only their harvest we see many at times. They don’t tell you their secrets so you end up praying to have what they had but sadly you don’t get that.
You don’t get that because you didn’t plant what they planted. Make it a habit to start planting. Sow a seed today. Your day is as rich as the seed you plant today. If you choose to plant nothing today, just remember that is how poor your day was. Don’t just wish something great happens to you. Make it happen.
In conclusion, “Do not deceive yourselves; no one makes a fool of God. You will reap exactly what you plant” – Galatians 6:7 (GNT).
Please share it with your friends. Someone out there needs this.
