Stay Sharp and Sharpened.


Once upon a time, a very strong woodcutter asked for a job in a timber merchant and he got it.
The pay was really good and so was the work condition. For those reasons, the woodcutter was determined to do his best. His boss gave him an axe and showed him the area where he supposed to work.The first day, the woodcutter brought 18 trees.

“Congratulations,” the boss said. “Go on that way!
”Very motivated by the boss words, the woodcutter tried harder the next day, but he could only bring 15 trees. ____
The third day he tried even harder, but he could only bring 10 trees.
Day after day he was bringing less and less trees.
“I must be losing my strength”, the woodcutter thought.
He went to the boss and apologized, saying that he could not understand what was going on.
“When was the last time you sharpened your axe?” the boss asked.
“Sharpen? I had no time to sharpen my axe. I have been very busy trying to cut trees…”


Our lives are like that. We sometimes get so busy that we don’t take time to sharpen the “axe”.
In today’s world, it seems that everyone is busier than ever, but less happy than ever.
Why is that?

Could it be that we have forgotten how to stay “sharp”?
There’s nothing wrong with activity and hard work but we should not get so busy that we neglect the truly important things in life, like:
👉our personal lives,
👉taking time to get close to our God the  Creator.
👉giving more time for our family,
👉taking time to read the Bible , spiritual materials etc.

We all need time
💥to relax,
💥to think and meditate on God's word.
💥to learn and grow spiritually.

If we don’t take the time to sharpen the “axe”, we will become dull and lose our effectiveness.

Please come o, what could have made this young man to want to sell himself?

I met him at the motor park in Nyanya Abuja, on my way to work. He was so serious to want to sell himself.

What has led him to this decision? 

I tried asking him, he told me of the frustrations and the helplessness he's daily facing. You may wish to contact me to contact him, (lol).
