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.

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…

Character

Think of character as having the benefits of a house’s foundation during a huge storm. If the foundation is strong enough, it will stand firm when the waters come. But when it is weak, the house will come down crumbling even at the slightest wind. That’s why it’s important that we develop a good character. It is often said that hard work will take you to the top but character will keep you there.  
 "Many succeed momentarily by what they know  Some succeed temporarily by what they do Few succeed permanently by who they are”
What then is character?  The Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary defines it as “the particular combination of qualities in a person that makes them different form others”. In the simplest terms, character is “who you are”, nothing more nothing less. It is often widely described as who you are when no one else is watching. Your character is what defines you. In other words, your true value can be more than what your degrees, reputation and even your pay check …
