Life is simple

05 December 2013, 11:56 By Jibunor George Chuks.

Many at times we fail to know the beauty of life and the plans of God by creating mankind! He did put us under command to rule and guide the world why because mankind are the most supreme and precious creature that He had created. This is why He is always very slow to anger when it comes to things that concerns us.

Earth is a beautiful place which out of His own “WILL” designed for mankind and with other inhabitants then above all, He entrusted us incharge over all that He has created. So many people view and live life in a way they feel it could be ok for them. There are people who take life as simple as like a very easy one therefore turning their own lifestyle into a simple way so that it (their lifestyle) can fit in with that of life which they believe its simple. This is a simplest mathematics which they believe can be suitable for them. Now, let me give you one practical example of someone which i have seeing who has actually demonstrated this lifestyle of simple.

His salary earnings are 60.000 naira per month, he is married with four children, two boys and two girls! And they are all in school, nursery and primary respectively. He pays house rent in a two bedroom flat. He is equally building a house of his own right now as i am telling this story. Wait now, some persons reading this right now, i know what might be going through their heads right now.... Like no no its not possible! But who told you its not possible? There are some irrelevant things that we spends our money on which he doesn't do.
Going to clubbing and drinking. He has a time to fast for God, the whole family, not because there is no money for food but because man does not live by bread alone. There are some little distance that he uses as an exercise therefore, walking is his best option. By doing that exercise of fitness he actually saves most of all this wasteful money others do waste on transportations! Many could say, what's life fore? How can i do that long walk all in the name of saving money! Hell no, i won't. Forgetting that the exercise helps to keep you fit and prevent you from fatness and diabetes. You burns the excess sugar in your system with such exercises and the fat too. It equally reduce money spends on hospital because hardly could or can you fall sick.  My dear, if this man can do it, why not you? You can.

 Then, the set that believes ah life is so unfair, unbearable, terrible and difficult. Now, they have made life and everything surrounding them to known that life is difficult for them. With this, little things about life which they do which other people might consider simple could or can be considered as the most complex or terrible condition about life for them. They spends money on things that are irrelevant rather than relevant. The 60.000 naira salary they receive is never enough for them. And yet this same people complains the country is bad, the country is bad! They sang it like songs all the time to nuisance like them too. So many people don't plan on how and on what to spend their salaries on. Mark this two words that i used, “How and what” two important key words in life. “On How” know the limit to spend. “On what” what can i invest on that can yield me more money at the end of every month or week.

So that i can not only depend on my monthly salaries. That's a perfect thinker and an executioner's target. Not to drink away or party away little that you have achieved. Be simple and live a simple life, it can help you to conquer the world. We are on earth on a mission and a mission we must accomplish. Don't allow life to subject you to abject poverty by not doing the right thing now. Make your purpose of life count in every seconds that you live. I'll leave you here, hoping that you have grabbed something from what i have said. God bless us.
