Turn on the Lights for the others to See


“One day i visited a friend of mine, Thomas, who is blind. And because it was night he did something that taught me a lot.

Upon entering the house, Thomas switched on the light. I asked him “Thomas, why did you put on the light yet you can’t see ?” Thomas laughed, switched off the light in the kitchen. After a short while he came with a pot of tea and eggs, placed them perfectly well on the table.

What Thomas said made me shed tears because he said to me, “Julius, i did not put on the light for my own sake or because i needed it, i did it for you because you needed it since you are not blind like me”.

Then he asked me, ”Julius, how many times have you switched off the light from other people and denied them an opportunity to see light just because you yourself do not need it ?” I thought about that so deeply.

🤷🏽‍♂️ Why would you let your accounts grow to millions while your brother’s child is going hungry, naked or barefooted ?

🤷🏽‍♂️ Why would you put clothes you don’t wear in the bin, while someone out there is almost going naked ?

🤷🏽‍♂️ Why would your food rot in your store while there is someone out there sleeping hungry ?

🤷🏽‍♂️ Why would you see a business opportunity and hide it without sharing with your friends when you know you wont use it ?

🤷🏽‍♂️ Why would you be in a position to help someone get promotion or a new job and you keep it because the person is not from your family, tribe or religion ?

🤷🏽‍♂️ Why would you defame your brother or sister just because you don’t want someone to help them ?

*Be mindful of others, switch on the light for others to see the opportunities out there. That’s the meaning of being “the Light of the world !”*
