SHE PUSHED ME AWAY, BUT LATER SAID ‘SORRY SIR’: I went to an e-bank hall few months ago. As I was about entering the hall, a lady ran ahead of me and pushed me away, so she could quickly join the long queue before I will get to the queue. I did not say anything.
She felt I will stay at her back, but I was actually not there to withdraw, I came to deposit. So I walked to the deposit machine and I was the only one there. No single person on the queue and when I finished depositing.
I was about leaving the hall, when the lady came from the queue and apologized that she pushed me away the other time. With sorry smile on her face; she said ‘I am sorry sir for pushing you away, I thought you were coming to the queue’, I just smiled and told her not to bother, that’s not a big deal.
But since then, the lesson in this story kept coming to my mind, and I felt I should share it for us all to learn from it.
Friends, who have you ‘pushed’ away and trying to outrun in the race of destiny, relationship, business, ministry, career, etc? You are thinking you are going to the same ‘queue’ (destination) unknown to you that, though your path may look alike, but your destinations are different!
How many people have had to say ‘sorry’ to those they pushed aside, pushed away, push down when they finally realized that that person was not actually going to the ‘withdrawal machine’ they were running to. Are you reading this and you are pushing people away here and there by slandering them, hindering their progress, blocking their promotion, spoiling their good names through lies and rumor all in a bid to ‘get there’ before them.
I challenge you today, to take it easy. You might not be going to the same destination. It might surprise you later that, with all your pushing away you are doing, they may still leave you on the ‘queue’ of destiny later and they will be successful before you.
Finally, are you reading this and you can feel people in your office, ministry, business, etc pushing you away just as she pushed me away so that they can get ahead of you? Don’t worry, God will use your case to prove to them that, ‘it is not of him who runs, but of the Lord that shows mercy…’
(Romans 9:16). He will show you mercy and give you an overtaking speed and those who are pushing you here and there will later come and tell you they are sorry. Please, don’t push anybody.
You might meet on the same path, but you might not be going to the same ‘machine’ (destination). Thanks for reading. You can share to warn someone and to encourage someone. I JUST WANT TO MAKE A SENSE. TOENGINE GLOBAL
