” So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart and guided them by the skillfulness of his hands.” Psalm 78:72
A good name says the Bible, is better than pounds and dollars.
When a man loses his money, he’s simply broke. When he loses his name, he’s got a stroke.
We become lame when we mess up our name.
Legacy is the greatest wealth of a man. He’s got to protect it with all he’s got. A man’s legacy is his best inheritance for his children.
Some names open doors. Some names close doors.
Some names command a clap, while some provoke a slap.
Some names bring curses while some attract kisses.
I assume you’re a Nigerian, a CEO, and you’re around 40years old.
An applicant drops his credentials with the name : Charles “Anini”. I’m sure you will make a special enquires about the applicant, and the chances of employing the fellow will be very very slim, no matter the qualifications.
The legacy of the heroic King David was built on two legs – Integrity and skillfulness.
Everyone needs those two legs to stand, and those two wings to fly.
Integrity without skillfulness is neonatal while skillfulness without integrity is infant mortality. None of them has a future.
No alternative to being skillful. Lack of skill will surely kill our career. We must know our onions.
Every career deserves specialists and professionals. No layman should know it better.
Integrity has its root in “integral” — a number without a decimal point.
Nothing devalues talents and abilities like lack of integrity.
A decimal point reduces 5000 to either 500, 50 or 5, depending on how far you allow it to go.
You’ve got to arrest that “dot” or those “dots” now, before they reduce you to the minimum.
“Whatever your hand finds to do; master the art and justify your heart, and you wouldn’t have to worry about your leg — legacies.
