the truth about itWritten by daniel nzenwata
The choir had just finished rendering a soul touching songs of worship and praise, every one was in mood to go to heaven. I was willing to be first on list, honestly I was. The pastor was a man in his early thirties. He was wearing a black suit and a cream colored shirt and a red tie. He carried himself so gracefully like he was very much aware of fact that he had a connection with a much higher being. When he mounted altar, everywhere became dump with silence. He had a story to tell. “One day a fisherman sailed out to sea with his son and son’s friend. That night nature was at rest, and fisherman hoped for a big kill. They sailed deep into sea, searching for kill zone, but along way they met a raging storm. The fisherman and his companions knew that they were in for a terrible ordeal, one they had not bargained for. As storm caught up with their speed, a forceful wind swept across them, rocking boat and sending overboard his son and friend. The boat was drifting away from spot where boys were trying so hard to stay afloat. The fisherman had chance of saving just one person out of two that were floating on sea. He had one life jacket with him, this he threw over board to his son’s friend, thus saving his life and allowing his son to drown. The fisherman had given up someone important, someone valuable to him in order to save another life”.
When he had finished talking, two little boys that were sitting close to me touched old man that was sitting next to them and asked him if pastor’s story was a true life story. The old man turned to them and said,” story is not a figment of his imagination. I am old man; boy that died was my son. And pastor is his friend. My son was a born again Christian and his friend were not. I saved his life to give him a second chance at knowing God”. I gave up my son sacrificially.
While we are on subject of “Don’t we All”, it may not be out of place to enquire from you when last you offered a sacrifice.. The kind of sacrifice that involves fact of giving up something important or valuable to you in order to help another person get something that seems important to him. Something that will affect his life positively.
Curiosity prompted me to inquire as to nature of this idea. I have suddenly realized that one of biggest jobs in world is this; giving up something that is valuable to us, and one of greatest joys in life is this; knowing that we have been able to reach out and touch a life, thus affecting that life positively. There is therefore a need for us to prescribe for ourselves a line of thought that should inspire us to give sacrificially. The idea of giving up something important to us to help others should be a habit of daily communication with others. It insures endurance of our riches and also serves as a dependable fetish through which we can draw upon powers of highest being.
