DOUBLE DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL
Tuesday 19 November 2019
Genesis 3:1-6; 22-24
DO YOU WANT TO LOSE “ALL” JUST BECAUSE OF “ONE”❓
Very often, we do not take out time to think deeply about the consequences of each of our actions and inactions. But, the truth is that for everything we do or fail to do, there is always a follow up to it. Our prayer today should be that we do not lose so much in our effort to gain very little. In other words, we don’t have to lose our dollars while trying to gain some cents.
From our test, you will notice that by just eating a fruit, Adam and Eve lost a whole garden full of even more precious fruits. They were thrown out of the garden of Eden into a world of thorns and thistles, suffering and sweating because they made one wrong choice. The experience is also true of Esau who for just a single meal, lost the whole blessing that could have been his.
These days, we are aware that some young persons have lost some scholarship opportunities, juicy job placements, valuable mentoring relationships and other good things of life simply because they traded the immediate for the ultimate. If you do not want that to become your experience, you must develop a good sense of contentment, learn to practise delayed gratification and make a commitment of total allegiance to God’s will for your life.
Obedience to God and life of contentment can safe-guard our blessings.
Help me to overcome the temptation of trading the ultimate for the immediate.
