Shape Your Destiny Wisely

… For with the same measure that ye mete, withal it shall be measured to you again. – Lk. 6:38 KJV

The scripture today is the summary statement of our Lord Jesus Christ, after delivering one of his several teachings, that he expects the Christian to put into practice in order to enjoy a comfortable Christian lifestyle. The major focus of this particular teaching was actually for the Christian to realise that life is like a mirror that reflects whatever gesture one makes before it. A smile by someone into a mirror returns a smile and vice-versa. Jesus with this teaching informs all people and the Christian in particular, that a major contribution to what one gets or becomes in life is a function of who one is, thus advocating that those particular areas of life he focused on should be taken seriously, amongst possible others.

In this teaching, Jesus Christ lists out some acts of men that anyone who hopes to avoid the pitfalls of life must abstain from. He advises that such a person:
1. Should avoid judging others – Lk. 6:37a. He makes it clear that he who judges will equally be judged. This is because;
a. Only a master can judge a servant.
b. It is very likely that man will not have sufficient information to deliver true judgement.
c. Man will be judged by the same lofty standards that he is also using to judge others, one which he may not equally be able to attain.
2. Should avoid condemning people as such a person will experience condemnation too – Lk. 6:37b.
3. Should form the habit of forgiving others, else it will be impossible to receive forgiveness too – Lk. 6:37c.
4. Should form the habit of giving if he/she hopes to receive from others – Lk. 6:38.

There can never be an overstating of the importance of these four actions in deciding the direction of any one in life. The Christian today who is complaining of one form of difficulty or the other needs to firstly assess his/her life using these parameters. Simple basic questions such as:
1. Have I been involved in judging fellow men, whether rightly or wrongly?
2. Have I been involved in condemning people either justly or unjustly?
3. Have I refused to forgive, even after all entreaties have been made by the supposed offender.
4. Have I ever given to meet someone’s need or I have always excused not giving on the basis that I do not have?

All these are questions that must be honestly answered by the Christian before expecting a positive response to that prayer request.

Should there be a short-fall in the response to any of the above, then expectation of a miracle from the Lord by such a person will most likely end in nothing. This is because Jesus Christ, in the scripture today says that it is impossible to escape the judgement of men, even if done unfairly, if such a person has been involved in judging others. It will be impossible to avoid condemnation by men if such a person has been active in condemning others. Forgiveness from family members, friends and colleagues will remain a dream for someone who has found it difficult to forgive others and there can be no act of mercy to be experienced by one who does not have any record of showing mercy to others. These are works that may not have a direct link with salvation or where eternity is spent, but will surely have much to do with how life is lived in this realm as it will decide how fellow human beings relate with the person.

Salvation from the discomfort of constant and probably, unfair condemnation by people, could be the focus of that prayer point to the Lord, just as the deliverance from the effect of the unfair judgement received could be the focus of the prayer point. The fact that people are holding you down because they are not willing to forgive your transgressions may be the reason for your prayer sessions just as lack of help from people could just be what is causing pains, and is what you want God to help you with. Note that all these may not be due to any enemy anywhere but basically the reward of your actions or inactions and a favourable response to those prayers will be dependent on you changing your reaction to others. Resolve to change today and all those situations will change in your favour. These are challenges that will be resolved, more by action than prayers.

May God grant you the ability to change your ways so that your fortune in life will experience positive turn around in Jesus name. Amen.
