Relationship

THE RELATIONSHIP CURRENCY

RELATIONSHIP Is a significant factor in achieving greatness in life. If you want to go far in ministry or business, you must find good partners now and you will be successful.

God blesses men through men in this life; no Angel will come and give you what you have requested from God day by day. In this chapter, I am not writing about your spiritual relationship with Angels and God, but rather about your relationship with men which is also very necessary and biblical

Angels will not descend from heaven and work with you, pay your school fees every time physically, or give you advice all the time, but I am genuinely writing about a great buddy, brethren, bride, and business associates.

If you want to advance in ministry, you will need to surround yourself with people who will support you and most at times people who have gone far than you. Do you think Apostle Joshua Selman or Apostle Arome Osayi would turn down my invitation to speak at one of Ghana’s universities if I knew them well and had a good relationship with them to the point where I could even chat with them on WhatsApp?

Relationships can take you places you never expected to go. Even as an anointed man of God, you may need to tell your friends who are also anointed men of God what you are going through in order for them to pray for you. It takes a good relationship to accomplish this. If you want to keep soaring higher, you need to know people.

When I came to the university in my first year, the first person I made a friend with later discovered that I am good at website development and told me that he has a woman from abroad who needs someone from Ghana to build a website for her. He connected me, and by God’s grace, I am still a good friend to the woman, and we do programs together even in ministry because the woman is an evangelist.

During our orientation, I recall most of the lecturers telling us that “this is the right place to make connections.”

Imagine I get to know someone very well, and we eat together, play together, pray together, and learn together, and later in the near future he becomes C.E.O. in a reputable company, and I am looking for a job either for my family member or someone else, can such a true friend turn me down?

Relationships will allow you to enter places that require people to pay thousands of Cedis before they can enter. Even today, people pay a lot of money to be recruited.

Loved ones, please remember that relationships contribute to a man’s greatness; don’t be antisocial, don’t act as if all men are evil, don’t act as if you know it all and don’t need anyone in life; a friend sitting next to you in class may one day become a great man, and it will only take you saying “hi, how are you, this is…” to receive a blessing through that your friend. Never dare look down on anyone you see today. Even a gleams of people’s future can be hidden most at times, the one you think he may not do well may do well in life. Don’t use only academics to choose people as friends, the one who may not be good than you can be fortunate in life, just make sure they are good and not evil and associate yourself with them. Choose friends who can help you pray and know God more, choose friends who are can also teach you so many things whether school books or skills and people that carry connections to help you one day as well.

 Easy-to-Read Version Ecclesiastes 4:7-12 Again I saw something else that didn’t make sense: I saw a man who has no family, not a son or even a brother. But he continues to work very hard. He is never satisfied with what he has. And he works so hard that he never stops and asks himself, “Why am I working so hard? Why don’t I let myself enjoy my life?” This is also a very bad and senseless thing. Friends and Family Give Strength Two people are better than one. When two people work together, they get more work done. If one person falls, the other person can reach out to help. But those who are alone when they fall have no one to help them. If two people sleep together, they will be warm. But a person sleeping alone will not be warm. An enemy might be able to defeat one person, but two people can stand back-to-back to defend each other. And three people are even stronger. They are like a rope that has three parts wrapped together—it is very hard to break.

Dr. Kwesi Koomson, a lecturer at the University of Education Winneba, is a family friend whom I have adopted as my uncle. When I visit his office, he tells his friends and lecturers that I am his son. They all respect and love me because Doctor introduced me to them. I was so surprised that he introduced me to a lecturer in my department, and the lecturer was so pleased that he told me to come to him in the next semester for a free grade A in his course because he is going to take me through a course the next semester. He claims to be Dr. Koomson’s best friend. Beloved, you need to have good friends, friends that can send you somewhere, friends that can connect you.

I know I’m an opportunist, but I’m convinced that the type of relationship you keep for yourself can also determine your future.

When you make friends with prostitutes, your end will not be pretty; when you make friends with drunkards and bettors, you may not have enough money, and no one will teach you the wisdom of saving. Associate yourself with wise people and you will become wise for bible says “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but whoever walks with fools suffers harm”.

You must be wise. This is wisdom, my dear brethren in the Lord Jesus Christ. Grab this and start looking for the good in men today. People may be weak, but if you can find the good in them and maintain a good relationship with them, it will take you somewhere one day. I helped a man two years ago, and he is now paying my school fees.

When you are extremely hungry and unable to call or text anyone on WhatsApp, you are in desperate need of money, whether your family members, friends, or people you have come into contact with, my dear, you are in a danger zone. Most at times you have family members you call no one will even respond to your call because they know you are coming to request for money, but I tell you, you can get a friend who can even support you. Bible says in Prov 18:24

“A man [that hath] friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend [that] sticketh closer than a brother”.

 I myself I have help people in developing website for their organizations without taking them any money, they didn’t pay anything to me because I am very close to them, they are my very close friends, so a time may come that they will remember me for good when I need their service.

Easy-to-Read Version 2 Samuel 9:1-7  David asked, “Is there anyone still left in Saul’s family? I want to show kindness to this person. I want to do it for Jonathan.” There was a servant named Ziba from Saul’s family. David’s servants called Ziba to David. King David said to Ziba, “Are you Ziba?” Ziba said, “Yes, I am your servant Ziba.” The king said, “Is there anyone left in Saul’s family? I want to show God’s kindness to this person.” Ziba said to King David, “Jonathan has a son still living. He is crippled in both feet.” The king said to Ziba, “Where is this son?” Ziba said to the king, “He is at the house of Makir son of Ammiel in Lo Debar.” Then King David sent some of his officers to Lo Debar to bring Jonathan’s son from the house of Makir son of Ammiel. Jonathan’s son Mephibosheth came to David and bowed with his face low to the floor. David said, “Mephibosheth?” Mephibosheth said, “Yes sir, it is I, your servant Mephibosheth.” David said to Mephibosheth, “Don’t be afraid. I will be kind to you because of your father Jonathan. I will give back to you all the land of your grandfather Saul. And you will always be able to eat at my table.”

If you want to be remembered for the right reasons, make sure your friendships are strong. Be kind to everyone, and one day you or your children will reap the benefits.

When you leave a good mark for the family as a father, those who know you well will still love your children as they loved you, and if any of them need help in life from them, they can be connected. Make a point of leaving a good name wherever you go, and you will be remembered for a long time.

“Life on campus is like writing an easy; people will read and mark it for you, and they will give you the remarks whenever you need them,” a teacher once told us.

Be kind, and you will surely reap the benefits!
