Text- John 3:27-30
Imagine a lecturer that has a fantastic reputation because every student that he teaches passes, if a student wants to make sure that man fails; the student will have to fail for the lecturer to fail. Only then can his reputation be broken. If you are working for the failure of another person, you are going to fail. As a boss that heads a department, if you decide that the department will be the greatest in that company, you must have the greatest members of staff in that company and as soon as you have that, nobody can get rid of you in that company.
Only small-minded people think they are hurting another person by denying his greatness, not knowing that they are actually reducing themselves. I have seen people that wanted to show another person that he can’t succeed while they are around. You have to fail to prove another person’s failure.
Your greatness can never come out of the failure of anybody else. When you bring somebody down, you make yourself lower and exhibit the nature of the devil. When you set out to make somebody fail and stain his reputation, you have to lose your own reputation too. You have to make yourself something twisted before you can make somebody fail. The wife of a Governor or President, most times is referred to as “First lady”. So, it is to her advantage if she supports the man to remain governor, if she wants to remain first lady.
PRAYER: Lord, I make a commitment to greatness and drop every negativity towards the people above me, in Jesus’ name. Amen!
