"A man who wants to swallow an udara seed, must first pause and carefully measure the circumference of his anus" - Chinua Achebe


Once upon a time, 2 hungry and lean goats passed through a hole in a farm fence into a man's farm. Once there they began eating the abundant crops. Both were hungry, but while the first goat pounced on every crop in sight, the 2nd would eat a little and take a look at the hole, despite his overwhelming hunger. After a while, the 1st goat had his stomach bulging in several places, and when he noticed his friend's stomach was not bulging, he called him a fool who was wasting a great opportunity. Seconds later, the farmer came in and both goats rushed for the hole. While the 2nd goat rushed through and escaped, the 1st couldn't - his bulging stomach stuck in the hole and he was caught and killed.
Be careful what you call opportunities and how you use them. There will always be consequences.
When you pounce on a relationship that leads you nowhere, check the hole. When you spend all your savings to buy things to impress others, check the hole. When you live a reckless sex life because of gain, check the hole. When you are desperate for a relationship or to be accepted by someone, check the hole!
When as a woman you choose to nag your hubby into submission, check the hole. When as a man, you treat your wife and kids as garbage because you are rich, check the hole. When you belittle yourself and become a beggar because of poor self image, check the hole.
When you become careless with opportunities God has given you in marriage, ministry, job, academics and leadership, check the hole. WHEN YOU TAKE GOD FOR GRANTED, CHECK THE HOLE!
WHEN YOU TAKE YOUR EYES OFF THE ULTIMATE, YOU BECOME A SLAVE OF THE IMMEDIATE! CHECK THE HOLE AGAIN!
