And his brothers responded, ” So you really think that you’ll be our king and actually reign over us”? (Genesis 37:8)
These are the inward voices humming softly in the mind of the wrong folks with whom we share our dreams and visions.
Sometimes we may be tempted to say ” It doesn’t matter sharing my dream with my best friend.
Sir, ‘it doesn’t matter’ may later become ‘a long matter’ on the long run..
Dreams are your personal seeds that are meant to be planted in the word of God and watered by prayers before unfolding them to anyone.
Eventually, when the seeds of our dreams begin to germinate, awe fills our heart thereby, neglecting the conditions attached to the fulfillment of dreams..
He’s my best friend, we soliloquies…
Yes he is, but do you know the kind of soil he is before planting that seed in him/her?
I liken our dreams to seeds that are scattered on various soils( Mentors, friends, models, teachers, friends, etc)
Three kinds of soils we could decide to plant our seeds(dreams) shall be examined thus :
(1)THE FOOTPATH AND SHALLOW SOIL:These are the folks whom we have a shallow knowledge of, and yet trusting them to foster our dreams..
(2) THE THORNY ONES: These are people who themselves know little about their dreams, and Lo, because of our intimacy with them, we just #feel it’s okay unfolding to them our dreams..
These kind of people cannot withstand the weeds of jealousy, bitterness and envy, which may not even be evident in their look..
(3) GOOD SOIL: These are the folks who have harvested the spiritual seed of success, they haven’t only experienced, but are also manifesting their successful feat.
Look inward carefully, and look around before choosing the soil( People) With whom you will plant your seeds ( Dream)..
