You are God's Masterpiece

In the art world, experts are always on the lookout for fakes and imitations. To the novice, a counterfeit can be mistaken for a masterpiece. However, an expert, someone who knows what to look for, can easily identify an original masterpiece.

Merriam Webster's Dictionary defines a Masterpiece as "a work done with extraordinary skill; especially : a supreme intellectual or artistic achievement". A Masterpiece is simply the best of a person's work. The climax of an artistic endeavor. 


After God spent five days speaking the worlds into form, creating the universe, He prepared for the ultimate of His grand and divine design - You. When God created man, unlike anything else He had made, He made man unique and special. He made man in His own image. 

"God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, ........." - Genesis 1:26.

God created us in His own image in that He endowed us with Spiritual, Intellectual and Moral likeness to Himself. He made us to be like Him. God created man to be an object of His love. This is why He took time to prepare all you'll ever need in the universe before bringing you on the scene. All creation displays God's glory but only man was created in God's image. Humans are God's representatives here on earth. He made us specifically to show His greatness and love. 

"God created us to be like Him in nature and character"

We are not counterfeits. We are Genuine Masterpieces "painted" by the Master Artist. We are not imitations but the genuine article. No other living creature has this amazing uniqueness. 

He loves you with such a love that He wouldn't stop in heaven without you; He was willing to give His life than see you perish. He knows everything detail and sees every secret tears. His heart is broken when you're hurt. He cannot bear to see you hew out broken cisterns when the Overflowing Fountain is always free to you. 

Always remember this, in spite of what you believe or how you feel, You're Loved. You're the best version of You. He'll leave the 'ninety-nine' for you because you're the climax of all His creations. You're His Masterpiece!  

I'll love to know your thoughts and opinions. Don't forget to share this with friends and family.

We're Empowered to Empower Others

One important truth we must all come to terms with in our world today is that as long as we're alive, we'll always be confronted by one challenge or the other. It is childish and immature to think or believe that life, at any given time will be trouble-free. It is then imperative that we understand that we face challenges so we can become stronger and grow to be who God created us to be. 
However, God promises to strengthen and comfort us when we go through trials. He promised to be with us when we go through any storm or fire. 
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you" Isaiah 43:2
When God does, He then expects us to extend the comfort and strength to others. We are to Empower Others with what God gives us. Just as we know that we can't give what we don't have, we are expected to pass on to o…

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…
