SCRIPTURE: Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers. Galatians 6:10 (NIV).

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Your worth in life is measured by your positive contribution to the people in your life.

John Wesley was a great man of God who impacted his generation in his time. The world has not recovered from the impact of his life and ministry till date.

He was the founder of the Methodist Church that has spread everywhere across the world today. In his life time, he once preached to about 30,000 people in a single gathering. Imagine commanding such a huge a crowd at that time!

He travelled on horseback, and he rode on horseback cumulatively for 250,000 miles in his days preaching the gospel. That was equal to going round the equator 6 times.

He preached more than 40,000 sermons in his lifetime. His daily schedule involved waking up every morning by 4am, and sleeping by 10pm in the night. And this continued for more than 60 years of his life. He preached an average of two to three messages every day. He was such a restless, brutal man.

However, he had a challenge; it was the challenge of marital disharmony. His wife was a thorn in his flesh.

One day, while he was praying, his wife held and pulled his hair to distract him from praying. The woman did a lot of things to distract his focus but he refused to be distracted.

Towards the end of his life, she apologized to him saying, “I’m sorry for all I did to you.”

John Wesley responded, “If both of us were to live together again for 100 years, you cannot undo what you have done.”
Beloved, the question to answer is, Are you a burden or a blessing to people around you? Is your impact on your spouse and family negative or positive? Have you helped or hurt your spouse? Have you upgraded your spouse or you devalued them?

As a parent, what is your impact on your children?
And as a child, have you brought a bad name or good name to your parents? Are your parents proud of you because of your lifestyle?

Beloved, your worth in life is measured by your positive contribution to the people around your life.

Remember this: Your worth in life is measured by your positive contribution to the people around your life.


  1. Ask yourself: Am I a blessing or a burden?
  2. If you have been a burden or a negative influence to the people of your life, make up your mind to repent today, apologize to them and correct any negative contribution you have made in their lives quickly.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You help me to be a blessing to the people of my life. Deliver me from falling into the temptation of being a thorn in their flesh Lord, in Jesus’ Name.



QUOTE: The blessing of God is not in the hearing; the blessing is in the doing. It is not what you know that gives you victory, it is what you do. Your stability in life is by the acceptance of responsibility. Culled from the book, “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.

AMAZING FACT: The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays are a source of Vitamin D, which is crucial for humans. Vitamin D helps keep bones healthy and prevent diseases that make bones weak, such as rickets!

PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the grace to be a generational Blessing in Jesus’ Name.
