SCRIPTURE: Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledst thou it: he went up to my couch. Genesis 49:3-4.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A person is never valuable until he has a sense of value.

It has been established that self-control is key to destiny realisation. A life without self-control is a destiny out of control. The capacity to say “No” is critical in fulfilling destiny.

Many years ago, I met a possessed girl. While praying for her, she confessed that she had not been able to say “NO” to any man. She slept with every man that wanted to sleep with her. Even if that man was a mad man, it did not matter to her. That was a demonic operation.

This was one of the character flaws of Reuben! He had no destiny principles and guidelines.

Now, another character flaw of Reuben was that he lived with no sense of value. He did not value his father. He did not want to preserve or respect what belonged to his father; rather, he defiled his father’s bed. He had no value for his father or the God of his father. He had no value for his father’s name and reputation.

Today, there are many people who have no sense of value. When you see someone who is always on drinking and smoking sprees, such person has no sense of value.

A lady that stands by the roadside as a prostitute, and goes home with any man who desires her, has no sense of value. A person is never valuable until he has a sense of value. No one regards a harlot or an armed robber enough to want to listen to their advice.

My counsel is, have a sense of value so you can be valuable in life.

REMEMBER THIS: A person is never valuable until he has a sense of value.


  1. Refuse to live without a sense of value.
  2. Live a valuable life by maintaining a rigid sense of value.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to maintain the right sense of value. Help me to be valuable in life as I maintain godly principles, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
