And God Lied-3?

And God Lied-3?

“Knowledge is power”

The above epigram is as old as my memory could recall, but it is not a completely applicable technique when it is applied without considering the place of the said kind of knowledge.

When Adam and Eve ate the forbidden fruit and knew they were naked, what kind of power did the knowledge give them?
How did it improve their lives?

It is no longer a secret that we are in a ‘Knowledge-based’ generation, where your earnings is connected to the knowledge you have, and how you can utilise the acquired knowledge for a financial boost.

In this new year, you must be deliberate with the kind of knowledge you acquire if you want to do something different and get a good result.

Unfortunately, a large number of our young people depend on social media for information. If it is not on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat or Nairaland, they are not interested.

They have become alien to reading books and taking classes that will improve their knowledge, and are now inclined with seeking knowledge like their mother, Eve- the knowledge that has no direct impact on their lives. They are well knowledgeable with the information of highest-paid football player, music artist, etc. They can boast of being well educated when it concerns trending gossips and celebrity fisticuffs but are ignorant of the weightier matters. ‘Awon’ #Marlians, #Titans, #Togbarians, #Buharideens etc.

For 2020 to be an awesome year for you, get a complete knowledge of that field by buying the requisite books, attending trainings to get complete information from qualified professionals.

Stop acting like mother, Eve, who had access to God, the master, but still gave ears to the devil to lecture.

All ye ‘shildren’ of Instagram, hear ye the word for 2020, and obey, so shall ye prosper!🙌🏾

God is constant, you are the inconsistent variable in the equation. Fix yourself and everything else will fall in place.

Have a fruitful New Year!

Attitude is Everything!
