Ezekiel 5:7-8 KJV
Therefore thus saith the Lord God ; Because ye multiplied more than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments;
 Therefore thus saith the Lord God ; Behold, I, even I, am against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations.
Recently, I read a post on social media, which comments were supposedly made by Sadio Mane, the in-form Liverpool FC Forward. Though I had seen the post before, I took time to read it again.
Essentially, he didn’t want to be consumed by all his wealth. He always remembered where he came from and would rather channel his resources into worthwhile projects that will transform the lives of his people back home.
Prophet Ezekiel, the drama minister that he was, portrayed the reality to his people. Their successes, compared to the neighbouring nations, had made them completely forget who they were or where they had come from. They had forgotten their God and His ordinances because “they had multiplied.”
Success can be delusional sometimes. I pray that as you “multiply” you still remember who you are, how you got there and what is more, who got you there.
I pray for more successful people among us, succesful people who have and maintain a memory!
Have a blessed day.
