Hello Dear Listeners, welcome to overcoming temptations. My name is Oyisi. Today our topic is titled: Be a solution
In life most people want to be successful and achieve something worthwhile with their lives. I want to share with you one great principle of success and that is, be a solution to others people’s problems. People will always pay someone who will provide a solution to their problems. Why do you pay a trader or farmer for food, because food solves the problem of hunger so you will be happy to pay for it. Why do you pay telecommunication companies for airtime or phone recharge, because they solve your problem of communication, why do you pay the bus or taxi driver because they solve your problem of transportation, so if you have a solution the world will pay for it. Don’t go about asking people for free money or favours, rather identify a problem in their lives and provide a solution and they will be happy to give you money and favour. A young boy kept asking an old woman for money and she kept ignoring him even though she had the money to help, one day he changed his strategy and asked her if there was anything he could help her do like laundry, cleaning and gardening. Immediately he got the woman’s attention because she needed someone for gardening and mowing her lawns. So she offered him a job. People are not just going to see you and pity you to help you, if you help them solve their problem they will help you solve yours so be a solution not a liability.
Check it, anytime God wants to promote someone in the Bible he makes the person solve a problem. Joseph and Daniel solved the problem by interpreting the Kings dream and received promotion. David solved the problem of killing Goliath and received promotion. Mary solved a problem by being an available virgin to conceive Jesus Christ and she was promoted. The King was searching for a virtuous wife and Esther solved the problem by being a good and virtuous lady and she became the queen. So solution to problems will bring promotion and financial gain.
There are so many problems around us such as diseases, depression, poverty, terrorism, corruption, injustice, hunger, illiteracy and so on. So if you can identify and solve one around you, you are sure to succeed.
Jesus Christ solved the greatest problem of mankind which is sin and the eternal consequence it brings. The sacrifices of animals was not an adequate atonement for sins, and we as human beings cannot by our own power live a righteous life. So by death on the cross and resurrection after 3 days he gave us the gift of salvation and solved our problem of condemnation.
Everyone has a gift, there is something in you that other people need no matter how small. So use your gift, talents and ideas and be a solution to someone today. Have a blessed day.
