I watched a movie (an American film) today titled “THE ULTIMATE GIFT”, it’s a film you should see, it taught me a lot of things, and i would like to share the lessons i learnt, although i still insist you should watch the movie. It’s the story of a grandfather who gave his grandson what he called the ultimate gift and in other for the young man to get this ultimate gift, he had to first learn to have the following gifts, which would eventually make him get the ultimate gift, and these gifts are thus;
GIFT OF WORK; work is an important part of life, it’s something every human should have, the gift of work makes you a focus person, no matter how big anybody might be or want to be, you have to work for somebody or something.
GIFT OF MONEY; money is good, like we all say money answereth all things, money can buy you the beautiful things of life, but we need to understand that it's a gift, it's not a do or die affair, that’s why we should endeavor to go about the right way to get the gift of money.
GIFT OF FRIENDSHIP; this is very important, friendship is essential in life, we need people we can lean on, people that can be there when we need somebody, but we must choose carefully who our friends should be, some people are our friends because of what they can get from us, some people are parasites in our life, we must try everything possible to rid ourselves of this kind of people. When you have real friends you will truly understand that friendship is a gift.
GIFT OF FAMILY; a lot of people have family members who are not worth it, in the sense that we can’t count on them, not all families are bonded, that's why a lot of people look for love outside their home, i have come to understand that we have our part to play too when it comes to family building, do your part in establishing the bond of your family, your family is very important, if you truly have a family you can count on, then you can enjoy the gift of family.
GIFT OF GIVING; we all have to learn the act of giving, giving is powerful, it’s the tool of the rich, look or study the richest men on earth, they are men who love to give, if you can’t give you simply can’t take, giving is a very essential gift in life, have you heard the saying, “GIVERS NEVER LACK” so why not learn the act of giving, it’s very essential, the most surprising thing about giving is, i have never heard of anyone that gave so much till he became poor, no matter how much you give you can never lack, truly giving is a gift.
