SHUN FOOLISHNESS

Read in your own language

Scriptural Text:  – Matthew 25:1-30″
“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:

 

The word “foolish” in the above scripture is from a Greek word “moros”. It means to be blocked headed or headless. In contemporary English, it is to be dull. This may sound harsh but why does Jesus call them foolish? They were called foolish because they lacked foresight so they did take oil with them. They failed to make adequate preparation for what they claimed to be expecting.

Sadly, some persons are this way. They may be well-intentioned people with good ideas, but they lack a good strategy for implementation. They do not project into the future and anticipate challenges, so they are shocked when they meet challenges. They do not determine what they will require aforetime, so they are always running helter-skelter at the last minute.

They have a mind to succeed, but they do not think things through before they start building their businesses or endeavours. They do the right things at the wrong time or at the wrong place, hence they are not effective. Like the foolish virgins, they know to buy oil but do not know to get enough. They are those who always try to solve issues at the minute when things have already gone bad. And, like the foolish virgins, because their foolishness, brings losses into their lives, relationships and businesses, they always end up being rejected.

As someone who intends to succeed, you must shun foolishness in every form. Become deliberate about adequately planning and strategic implementation of your ideas. Think through every project so that you can anticipate challenges, and make plans to surmount them even before they surface. That way, you will not incur losses.

🙏 DAILY PRAYER GUIDE

🙌🏾 PERSONAL PRAYER FOR THE DAY:
Dear Father, I ask for grace to apply my heart to wisdom and to shun foolishness in Jesus name.

PRAYER FOR A NATION – FEDERATED STATES OF MICRONESIA
Biblical Christianity faces challenges on three fronts. One is the traditional cultural elements such as the use of magic. Another is the pull of Western consumerism encouraged by US aid and the temptation to migrate to the USA. Finally, Mormon missionaries are highly active in Micronesia.

1. Prayer for the nation: We are praying for a revelation of the power and love of Jesus Christ in the nation, that many may come to salvation thereby.
2. Prayer for the leaders:
Father in the Name of Jesus, purge the nation of every corrupt and evil-minded leaders, that the people may yield to righteousness alone in Jesus name.

🕍 PRAYER FOR ISRAEL – ( Psalms 122-6 )
Father, I ask today that there will be peace in Jerusalem and that your purposes be established in that city. Amen.

💒 PRAYER FOR UNITY IN THE CHURCH
Father in the Name of Jesus, we pray and declare that every attempt of hell to sabotage and discredit the Church will not stand, but the truth of your Word will prevail in the heart of every believer in Jesus name.

☄️ PRAYER FOR SOULS / REVIVAL
Father in the Name of Jesus, we ask that you cause the light of your Gospel to shine more and more in our city today, so that we will reap an unprecedented harvest of souls, in Jesus name.e.
