FOR THEIR SAKES – Wed, Aug 30, 2017

Genesis 30:27 KJV

And Laban said unto him, I pray thee, if I have found favour in thine eyes, tarry: for I have learned by experience that the Lord hath blessed me for thy sake.

Sometimes when I meet with other colleagues who ran their own businesses, you’d often hear them complain about one or two staff who give them much trouble. A very few of these bosses have even conclude that all their staff are ‘useless’ and they’ve come to accept that.

You may see renditions of this in your school, in your family or even at church. But it might interest you to know that your business, school, family or church may have seen progress not necessarily because of your hard work, but the presence of another.

I don’t look down on hard work by this statement. But the mere presence of some people, due to what (anointing) they carry on their lives, is able to affect the whole lot. Laban realized this with Jacob. The guy was shrewd, Laban knew that… But he was also blessed!

It is important for you to identify such people around you and continue to benefit from what they bring to the table. Instead of driving them away, create roles that will keep them around you longer, you will need them.

Have a blessed day. #CarllyDevotionals #1ChapterADay #OCP
