Forgiveness: Why Are We Missing Opportunities?

Forgiveness: Why Are We Missing Opportunities?

Chidi5The feedback from Chelsea’s story has been awesome. I think many people could identify, in one way or the other, with her story. Today, we shall be taking it further by highlighting the importance of forgiving your country. “Forgive my country? What does that mean?” Many families are bitter toward their countries, they feel robbed of opportunities, disappointed, violated without justice in sight and it appears that there is no end in sight. “Things were great some years ago, now that it is my turn, the country practically has nothing to offer me. I have not gained anything from this country”, a distraught young man thought to himself. However, if we want to move forward, we must learn to forgive our countries. Do you love your country?

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love you” Psalm 122:6. In this scripture, if you replace Jerusalem with your country or where your family resides at the moment, the principle here is that there are opportunities your family cannot see and profit from unless they love their country. It is amazing how foreigners make billions from the same economy everyone complains about. What you label a problem is an opportunity for someone else, the issue is with the individual doing the labelling. Today, we enjoin you to stop complaining about your country, make up your mind to love your country, pray for her, celebrate her, support her, be an ambassador, patronise the products and services produced in it. Love is action, not just talk.

THINK & ACT: Pardon your country and enrol yourself in nation building. Every change starts with an individual with a different paradigm and vision.

    The state of things in my country right now is frustrating, but I think we need to get past the blaming game and see what we can do on our part as citizens in building the nation.

    Same here @ Dan, reading this woke me up! I have been holding a grudge against the government of my country for segregating my people. Although, I don’t think they will ever change, but I have decided not to keep all that negativity energy within me.
