If you are born left handed today, you are setup to operate in a right handed world. This means the things you work with are designed for right handed people. Doors, machinery, appliances and even games are designed opposite to what you would be comfortable with. You therefore have to put in twice as much time to learn how to function in this right handed world. As a unique individual, you must understand that the world is not designed to fit your mould. Ehud as a left hander couldn’t buy a suitable weapon off the shelf. He therefore had to go make his own weapon. He couldn’t just enjoy the convenience of shopping. He had to learn the blacksmith trade and master how to make an effect weapon. That diligence set him up to excel as a leader.
Diligence is critical to your uniqueness. Go the extra mile, stay up two extra hours, work harder, go further and stretch yourself more than others because you are different. Are you a woman in a male dominated industry? You must work twice as hard to get anywhere. Are you a Christian businessman in this corrupt generation? You must be more excellent and aggressive than your competition. The world will not give you the tools you need. The honours is yours to take the leap of faith and do the things it will take to get the results required. Be diligent today.
SCRIPTURE READING: Proverbs 10:4 He who has a slack hand becomes poor, But the hand of the diligent makes rich.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, am grateful because am diligent to deliver results. I am a hard worker and I stretch myself more to get the required results. Teach me to be more excellent in everything that I do. Amen
