On a daily basis we run, walk, sit into people who we make assumptions about who end up surprising us. This last weekend I was introduced to two different people and honestly i felt somewhat ashamed. Let me explain….
I am not a person who gives as much as I would like to. I believe i give less than what I am capable of and this is as a result of my personality. While I am bubbly sometimes, I dislike processes, especially in Nigeria. In the past i have given specifically to women and children. I am of the opinion that men are generally better positioned in society than women and children.
The two people i met, one is from Boko Haram territory – when i heard of different things he did within his community i was floored. He didnt tell me that himself, it was the person that inteoduced him to me that told me in confidence. I also met a 27 year old that does prison outreach.
My own calling has always been women and children. I actually have a registered a foundation and I am working on some ideas to see what is feasible and effective. God help me, because some days i wear so many hats i start getting confused.
Do you meet people who make you reflective? How do you feel about doing for those who have absolutely nothing to offer you in return? Or are you even struggling to keep your own head above water that its hard for you to consider someone else?
