PAUL FASORO is at it today- bringing to you a food for thought.
What are you going to say when someone taps your chest and asks you “what can you do”?
What will be your reaction when you have an opportunity to fill a blank spot in your life, but then you have to sin in the process?
What will you do, when the helpless needs your help and deep down you know you can either help them or take advantage of them?
What will you do, when you know that your next step will offend God, but the people around you call it “a blessing in disguise”?!
I think you should Stop!, and Think! Here’s why.
In elementary economics, we hear terms like “long run” and “short run”. These terms are used to express the immediate and distant effects of a major (or sometimes minor) decision.
For example, a reduced supply of a product may lead to scarcity, and thus an increase in price, in the short run. However, in the long run, that product may eventually loose its market to a close substitute. Leading such a product to extinction.
Everyone of our life’s major decisions have a “short run” and a “long run” result. It may taste good, or feel awesome today, but how will it be in ten months or ten years?
In like manners, it may be a bitter experience today but what will the aftermath be?
I dare you to ask yourself if you are ready for the short and long term effects of your next step before you take them. Have a great life ahead!
