*IF YOUR EGO ALWAYS TELL YOU THAT THERE ARE PEOPLE AROUND YOU THAT ARE TOO SMALL FOR YOU TO READ THEIR WORK*
Pause, take a chill pill and read: This is for you sir/ma.

*Bishop David Oyedepo’s Experience!*
Some years back Bishop Oyedepo was having the same thought as you do now but something happened that changed his view and perception about that.
One day a young minister walked into his office with smile on his face with a copy of his new book which he gave to Papa as a gift to his Spiritual Father and Mentor, but after praying for him and he left, Bishop said what is it that he has written and wanted me to read? Is there anything in that book that will add to what I already know?
So Bishop left the book on his office table for Months without looking inside… One faithful day Bishop was bothered and worried about a particular issue, that he went to God to seek for solution to that very problem but the unexpected happened, the Lord directed him to that book from the young minister, what, like seriously he said but the Lord insisted in that book was what he seeked for.
He had no option but to pick up the book to read, he couldn’t drop the book but read to the last page with excitement and boom the light came, he has gotten what he was looking for in thesame book he thought there was nothing deep, rich or important. From that day he decided to read anything that comes his way. Any write-up he comes across. For you never can tell.
I don’t know the reason for your decision and action but permit to say that it’s pride! Pride has enveloped you that you now think that anyone below you has nothing to offer, in the church, school, government institution, neighborhood and even in your house.
But listen: The solution to that problem that has been giving you sleepless nights may be in their books, their posts on social media, verbal ideas, written ideas or articles. The truth is that God deals with us differently. He gave each of us a message and that’s why we must work together and accept each others work.
To you they may be small but to God they are vessels… And no one is too small for God to use… Remember He used a horse to communicate with His people.
