Welcome to purposeful living today. 

Good day my dear reader, compliment of the season to you and your lovely family.

We at fulfil purpose blog wish you God's favour this season.

It's two days to Christmas, I am so excited not just for the food, and fun but for the life of Christ I have received because of the birth of Jesus to the world.

As we celebrate Christmas and get set for the year 2020. I want to share with you two wisdom tips that will help you make this yuletide season a very memorable one in your relationship with family, friends, strangers and even enemies.

Lack of this truth I am about to share with you has led to the termination of destiny relationships.

Getting wisdom is the most important thing you can do! And with your wisdom, develop common sense and good judgment.(Proverbs 4:7 TLB).

These tips are:
1). Keep your tongue from speaking evil of anyone.

2). Don't conclude on what someone said to you about someone.

let me explain...

1). Keep your tongue from speaking evil of anyone: 

The life and death of any relationship lie in the power of the tongue.

This season your long-time friends will come for Christmas celebration and they will ask you; "Aunty Bobo you aren't married yet? I already have 4 children what are you waiting for?"

"Uncle Ojo after all these years you still haven't built your house? You don't have a car yet? I have chains of cars and  beautiful mansions in the city and one in the village, why are you still in a rented apartment with your family?"

My dear, people will speak ill of you, want to stop you from progressing and make you look inferior before them — being offended is a necessary evil in this world that we can't avoid.

You can choose how you respond to people and their annoying behavior by aligning your life to God's word through the power of the Holy Spirit.

 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but be a new and different person with a fresh newness in all you do and think. Then you will learn from your own experience how his ways will really satisfy you. (Romans 12:2 TLB).

God's word should be the instructional guide of your life, not your feelings and emotions.

It takes the grace of God not to react based on the flesh when you hear these things.

How to respond based on God's word:

  • Don't speak in anger:

A gentle answer turns away wrath, but harsh words cause quarrels. A wise teacher makes learning a joy; a rebellious teacher spouts foolishness.
(Proverb 15:1-2 TLB).

 Let your conversation be gracious as well as sensible, for then you will have the right answer for everyone.
(Colossians 4:6 TLB).

  • Speak with wisdom:

 When she speaks, her words are wise, and kindness is the rule for everything she says. (Proverb 31:26 TLB).

  • Don't try to explain to them:

Crooks are jealous of each other’s loot, while good men long to help each other. Lies will get any man into trouble, but honesty is its own defense.
 (Proverb 12:13-14 TLB).

  • Don't speak out of frustration:

Dear brothers, don’t ever forget that it is best to listen much, speak little, and not become angry; for anger doesn’t make us good, as God demands that we must be. So get rid of all that is wrong in your life, both inside and outside, and humbly be glad for the wonderful message we have received, for it is able to save our souls as it takes hold of our hearts
(James 1:19-21 TLB).

2). Don't conclude on a rumor or gossip about someone:

When King Hanun of Ammon lost his father King Nahash, king David of Israel sent his ambassadors with a message of sympathy to him because his father was kind and loyal to him while he was alive. Now, some elders told Hanun that he should not think that the men sent by King David are coming to console him of his father's death but they are coming to spy the land so they can conquer it. King Hanun received this information without vetting it. He would have vetted the information if he was a wise king and call the men, finding out why they were in his kingdom. No, he didn't, rather he disgraced the men by shaving their beards and stripping them of their clothes halfway up their buttocks and sent them back to King David. Instead of apologizing he went into battle with the king of Israel, he was defeated and deposed ( 1 Chronicle 19).

This singular act made him lose the kingdom to his brother King Shobi who became a loyal vassal of King David (2 Samuel 17:27).

Your friends and family members will speak ill about someone because they personally dislike them, they want you to join them, refuse to join them.

Especially when you want to favor somebody, someone will just come with a rumor about the person, to discourage you from doing them good.

When you hear a rumor or gossip about your friends, fiancé or spouse for married couples don't believe it until you hear from them. Don't partner with the devil to destroy your destiny relationship(s).

When you hear anything don't believe it until you hear from the other person or persons involved; " In the mouth of two or three witnesses every matter will be established". (2 Corinthian 13:1).

When the two women who were prostitutes came to King Solomon for judgment he did not act based on what the woman that her son was dead said. He had to also hear from the woman that had the living son, by the wisdom of God in him justice prevailed.

Choose to walk in love with everyone this season and always, love doesn't speak or do evil to his neighbor and love believes the best of everyone (1 Corinthians 13:4-7).

Wisdom is profitable to direct...God bless you.

Dear reader, you need the Grace of God to build a relationship that is full of love. You can't do this until you receive him into your life.

You can begin a relationship now with the Lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:

Lord Jesus Christ, I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you to forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today that I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.

If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible-believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
