“And the foolish said to the wise, Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out. But the wise replied, There will not be enough for us and for you; go instead to the dealers and buy for yourselves.” (Matthew 25:8-9, AMP).

This was a parable Jesus gave to describe how the Kingdom of God works. He used the illustration of five wise and five foolish virgins. They were waiting for the coming of the bridegroom. But the foolish virgins had run out of oil in their lamps. So they had to ask the wise virgins to give them some. The wise virgins politely refused and advised them to go get their own.

There are some vital lessons we need to learn from here. 1. There will always be days of great opportunities that will come. Most of the times, they come wrapped in human beings. 2. Preparation is key to make that opportunity a reality. The wise virgins were adequately prepared for the dream they were expecting.

3. A saving culture is key to lasting longer in the days when your expectations/dreams are yet to come. The wise virgins had extra oil, the foolish did not. So they couldn’t remain in the position of waiting required of them. So when the opportunity (bridegroom) came, they were not around.

You see, God will not present an opportunity for you to invest into something that will take you to the next level if you do not have a saving culture. He wants you to first be faithful in little. If you spend all you have, then it becomes clear that you can’t manage the next big thing. Giving is good, but to dip hands into your savings is not wisdom at all.

For us Africans, the needs of our relatives have finished us. For others, we have fallen prey of Pastors who tell us to go and empty our accounts and try God. Sacrificial giving is good, but make sure it is the voice of God you are hearing and not that of man. There are people you must say no to if you want to grow financially. Great day my friend. #BeInspired.
