Success is not measured by how much money or resources you have but by how you can convert your skills and abilities to useful ends.
I have observed that people Complained more than they contribute and over time they become better Complaining than Contributing because that’s what they’re good at. When all you do is spend virtually all your time seeing the wrong in others and recruiting others to support your perspective of them, you will certainly end up a failure in no time. You think no one but you, is good enough!
Don’t criticize when one’s ideas or opinions are preferred over your own. Don’t judge, and if you must, take a trip through their experiences and or ordeals, and make sure of fairness! Do good and be good to others because it is required of you.
Kindness and goodwill on the bases of relationships or affinities are wholly sentimental, because, When the bond is broken, the real you will be opened.
Love without limits, because it is unconditional. serve without pretense, because it is unto God.
Not every service you render or provide should be rewarded with money or favors, most of what you got and can do are given to you freely.
Plan to meet needs, identify problems and provide solutions. Don’t be the questions, remain the answers. Don’t ask “whys”, “know whys”. Don’t breed or initiate chaos, promote peace, be patriotic, have value for life. Rather than condemning others, commend their efforts, see the good in them and be optimistic of their successes. Quit expecting others to fail, because their failures won’t make success out of you. Never forget that failure is not failing at an attempt at something. Rather, it is a propelling force to discoveries: How not to’s & How to’s.
Quit rigging elections, quit looting, quit stealing public treasuries, quit deceit, quit lies, hatred, injustice, greed, tribal and religious sentiments. Never determine whose life is more important on the basis of their colors, races, academic qualifications, societal status or languages. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). God loves us all equally.
“The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world,and they that dwell therein.” Psalms 24:1 KJV
To comprehend or understand what this portion of the bible meant, take a close look at the break down from Barnes’ Notes on Psalms 24:1;
The earth is the Lord’s – The whole world belongs to God. He is the Creator of the earth, and therefore, its Proprietor; or, in other words, “the property vests in him.” It belongs to Him in a sense somewhat similar to our right of property in anything that is the production of our hands, or of our labor or skill. We claim that as our own. We feel that we have a right to use it, or to dispose of it, as we choose. No other person has a right to take it from us, or to dictate to us how we shall employ it. Thus, God, in the highest possible sense, has a right to the earth, and to all which it produces, as being all of it the creation of His hands, and the fruit of His culture and skill. He has a right to dispose of it as He pleases; by fire, or flood, or tempest; and He has an equal right to direct man in what way He shall employ that portion of the productions of the earth which may be entrusted to Him. All the right which any person has to any portion of the earth’s surface, or to what is treasured up in the earth, or to what it is made to produce, is subordinate to the claims of God, and all should be yielded up at His bidding, whether He comes and claims it to be employed in His service, or whether He comes and sweeps it away by fire or flood; by the locust, or by the palmer-worm.
And the fullness thereof – All which it contains; everything which goes to “fill up” the world: animals, minerals, vegetables, people. All belong to God, and He has a right to claim them for His service, and to dispose of them as He pleases. This very language, so noble, so true, and so suitable to be made conspicuous in the eyes of human beings, I saw inscribed in a place where it seemed to be most appropriate, and most adapted to arrest and direct the thoughts of men – on the front of the Royal Exchange in London. It was well to remind the great merchants of the largest commercial city in the world of the truth which it contains; it does much to describe the character of the British nation that it should be inscribed in a place so conspicuous, and, as it were, on the wealth of that great capital.
The world – The word used here – תבל têbêl – is a poetic word, referring to the earth considered as fertile and inhabited – the “habitable” globe; the same as the Greek, οἰκουμένη oikoumenē.
And they that dwell therein – All the inhabitants of the earth, embracing men and animals of all kinds. Compare Psalm 50:10-11. God has a claim on people – upon their services, upon their talents, upon all that they can acquire by labor and skill; He has a right to all that fly in the air, or that walk the earth, or that swim in the sea. On the occasion on which it is supposed that this psalm was written, in bringing up the ark of God, and placing it in the tabernacle provided for it in the capital of the nation, no sentiment could be more appropriate than that which would recognize the universal supremacy of God.
Think before you speak because once you say something, you can’t take back. The NLT for Matthew 12:37, says, “The words you say will either acquit you or condemn you.” Yes! We are that powerful! The bible describes us in Psalms 139:14 as “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well”. These and many more accounts for why we cannot be careless
You are created in in God’s image, in His own likeness. Genesis 1:26, so you see, you should never think less of yourself or others.

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made – Set Apart and Unique
On a more practical level, God has fearfully and wonderfully made us, setting us apart as the brightest, clearest mirror of God’s creativity. While evolutionary biology considers us nothing more than glorified apes, scientific research confirms that humans are vastly unique on many levels. Only humans possess the ability to create and understand art and drawing.1 Man’s capacity for abstract thinking sets us apart from animals. By referring to un-observable events and changes, we are able to formulate explanations of why certain things are happening. Chimpanzees, for example, operate in a world of concrete, tangible things merely reacting to conditioning from directly observable events.2
Humans are set apart from all other creatures by the ability to make moral judgments. We can discern between what is right and wrong. No animal models exist for human pride, shame, or guilt. A dominant male chimpanzee does not punish or prevent another chimpanzee from stealing food from another.3 Humans are unique in that we recognize wrongdoing and seek redemption.
American author and biochemist, Isaac Asimov (1919–1992), stated that the human brain is “…the most complex and orderly arrangement of matter in the universe.” As you read this, your brain signals your eyes to automatically adjust the focus and aperture. Humans are not the product of chance or haphazard construction. German-American rocket scientist and aerospace engineer, Wernher van Braun (1912–1977) stated, “Certainly there are those who argue that the universe evolved out of a random process, but what random process could produce the brain of a man or the system of the human eye?”
In the time it took you to read any of the previous paragraphs, 1.5 gallons (6 liters) of blood passed through your heart. Did you know that the human heart’s blood vessels are not just straight-through tubes? They are helical, having a slight twist to them. This gentle corkscrewing makes your blood flow more evenly, minimizing damage from turbulent flow, especially at T-junctions. This smooth flow also encourages the productions of healthy-promoting protective substances.4 God’s attention to the human heart is extraordinary!
Fearfully and Wonderfully Made – The Heart of the Matter
In many cultures, the heart is seen as the center of the emotions. The human heart is fearfully and wonderfully made, enabling us to love and experience God intimately. The heart reveals our personality—thoughts, memories, emotions, desires, will (Luke 6:45). Our hearts not only think, feel, and remember, but also choose every course of action. Our decisions should reflect integrity of heart, with a heart that is discerning. When we live an upright and honorable life, God fills our hearts with joy (Psalm 97:11).
God places a high value on our bodies as well as our hearts. We are an intricate and fleshly fine-tuning of divine wisdom
