We were discussing our father that died on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 as we drove through the sparsely populated area in order to do some business in a nearby fast-growing town that is becoming a city already.
As we got to the junction that one of our customers had described for us some minutes earlier. We crossed the Express Road in order to park at a safe point. My spouse alighted in order to trace the exact location where the woman was.
She didn’t return timely. This gave me an opportunity to ruminate about life one more time. As I was doing that, an occurrence that happened in the church stroke my mind. ‘Who was actually wrong?” I asked myself. “The other party or myself?” I queried.
As I was engrossed in this thought, a mentally derailed man stood beside our car, and scribbled something on the side screen of the car. It took me time to Stand up to see “the writing on the wall.” I was surprised with what I saw. “A good man” was written by the man. I was justified that the demon in the man knows that I am a good man.
Another thought about the saying of Jesus came to my my mind where he said, “no man is good.” Whether the demon referred to me or not, I am relieved of that thought that hour. A very short thought, but a long argument in the court of my heart!
You may think no one knows you; it’s a lie, God sees your heart, angels know you and even demons. They know whether you’re good or bad.
Though Jesus said only his father, God is good. This does not mean no man is good, but when our goodness faces that of God, it’s going to disappear into thin air. Notwithstanding, let us be good and do good in all our dealings with men.
