IF YOUR AGE COULD SPEAK

Imagine you had no birth certificate. And your parents also couldn’t trace your age. And the only way to determine your age is to measure how well you’ve maximized each year. What will be your real age?

How old are you now? Twenty-five? Thirty? Thirty-five? You’ve seen all those years end. But have they really profited you? Have you utilized the opportunities and resources they came with?

Do you bear fruit that matches your age? Have you yielded to the growth process each year gave you? Does your attitude and character reflect your age? Can the people around you testify there’s no gap between you and your age?

If your age could speak, what would it say? Will it accuse you of neglect? Will it bemoan it has been underfed?  

Perhaps you’ve experienced thirty passing years already. And because of those years that passed, you say you’re 30. But are you really 30 when you could maximize only 10, 15 or 20 of those years? Jawaharlal Nehru asserted, “Time is not measured by the passing of years but by what one does, what one feels, and what one achieves.”

Life isn’t just about the number of years you live. It has everything to do with what you do with those years. You can be full of years and yet, empty of the fullness of the improvements those years bring. It’s meaningless to have an array of beautifully celebrated birthdays if the basis of those celebrations isn’t about the content of the year.

Don’t just celebrate a year. Celebrate the performance of the year. And like George Meredith said, “Don’t just count your years, make your years count.”

God has given us the blueprint. And this is it: He focuses on what a day can produce and then works at it. Rather than focusing on the day or the year coming to a close, cause it to produce something. Check this revelation;

And God saw the light, that it was good…. (Gen. 1:4)

………… and God saw that it was good. (Gen. 1:10, 12, 18, 21, 25)

And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good…. (Gen. 1:31)

Have you realized God was the one who, by His works, defined the day as good? Yes. His output made the day complete.

That a day or a year closes doesn’t make it good. The acts in it, the proper inputs bringing out their profitable outputs, define it. And if it’s so, then what needs to be the basis for the celebration of a year should be the content. Not the closure.

Life satisfies by content. Not just by closure.

Pope John XXIII said, “Men are like wine-some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.” I’m positive you’ll choose to be like the men who improve with age.

Let each year that’s added to you reveal the effect of growth in you.

Every year that adds to you is like a womb. And just like a business, it grants you the platform to invest into it and to grow. Invest all that you can. Read good books, listen to those who ever made it, and never be cut-off from the atmosphere of the wise.

It’s your responsibility to decide, to discipline yourself, to take action and to fulfil your life purpose. Get up and get it done.
