E kaaro, Idobale ni mo
The Yoruba boy in me will often
emerge. I have no option but to say ‘Good Morning while prostrating’! I consider my language an asset, at this
time, now that the spotlight is now on Africa and her languages. Be that as it
may, let’s learn from the worldview of the Yoruba today. Welcome to a new week, its a wet Monday morning in Lagos.
In some corporate organizations
in Nigeria, it is a company policy not to allow couples to work within the
company. It is understandable because it would be easy to perpetrate fraud.
However, there are some couple who work in the same big organization without
the knowledge of the management. The lady thereby retains her maiden name after
a ‘secret’ marriage. One of the ‘assumed allies’ of the lady sold her out to
her line manager hysterically. She called her the surname of the guy mentioning
his vivid details. This reinforces a Yoruba saying, ‘B'íkú ilé kò bá pani,t'òde kòlè pani’ meaning if the
household (enemy) does not kill one; an external (enemy) would not be able to penetrate.
Internal Entrust are the people
that one believes they are one’s allies and you can narrate everything about
one at every point in time. However, these are the set of people that can
easily be your ‘Judas’ because they have all your information at their
disposal; they can easily be your ‘Delilah’ who can be used to obtain great
information from you and they can also be ‘spy’ who wants to evaluate you for
External Attack is a response to
the information gathered from the internal people that you have entrusted your
life and secret to. The causes of many job losses are based on tip off by
colleagues! Many times, we sell ourselves out cheaply and we pay dearly for it.
However, there are times when external attacks could be as a result of sin or
that the glory of God to be unveiled.
Men are built for relationships
but know this for sure that you are the only person that can help yourself
against internal entrust or external attacks. If you do not set limit; your
information can turn around to inhibit you!
As small as your tongue is, it
can set a forest on fire. James 3:5.
Have an attack free week.
