Greetings to all followers of YOUCUS. We ascribe praise and thanksgiving to the giver of life, the Almighty God, for whom by His kind courtesy, we are alive to behold the NEW YEAR, 2019. We trust God that in this year our STRATEGIC EFFORTS plus GOD’S GRACE will cause us to enjoy the free gift of the LORD’S ABUNDANCE. Always bear in mind; YOU’RE THE FOCUS: CHANGE BEGINS WITH YOU.

Now, let’s hit the road. I don’t know about you but for me, wealth is the dress I love to wear every day without changing clothes. It’s the food I can eat over and over without having a diminishing marginal utility. Wealth is the friend whose daily escort speaks and teaches a lot of wisdom. Wealth is wealth; a MINISTRYon its own that has what it takes to effect a lot of changes wherever it finds itself. To be wealthy, I believe, is a MUSTnot OPTIONAL, even though its timing may vary.

Let’s therefore consider the various definitions of wealth. The free dictionary defines wealth as the abundance of valuable material possessions or resource. The business dictionary, from an economic perspective, defines wealth as the total of all assets (natural resource and human capital) of an economic unit that generate current income or have the potential to generate future income. From study.com, wealth, in its simplicity, is the value of all the resources that are possessed by any individual or society. From these three different definitions, the word, “RESOURCE” is prevalent in them all. I will define wealth as inner/ self-resources, which has the potency to attract other valuable assets, once they are cultivated.

I strongly believe that, if not all, most people are wealthy, but only few people get to know of it or live to see its manifestation. No wonder Dr. Myles Munroe once said, “The wealthiest spot on this planet is not the oil fields of Kuwait, Iraq or Saudi Arabia. Neither is it the gold and diamond mines of the Soviet Union or the silver mines of Africa.”He concluded that, “The wealthiest place of earth is the cemetery.”I don’t think anyone will intentionally contribute his/her wealth to that of the cemetery but ignorantly and unconsciously many people do that. I don’t want us to be contributors to such wealth, that’s why I have taken the time to share this with you so that we will be a reminder to one another on the need to manifest our wealth.

Wealth carry forward implies that you and I always have an asset/ resource in our possession that we carry it on in life. It’s up to us to use and develop those resources so that we can attract other things of great value. Probably, you may be wondering, “What resources is he talking about?” STAY CALM, DEAR, as the time unfolds, we will look at those resources.

To conclude, please try and keep this in mind: NEVER THINK YOU HAVE NOTHING, YOU CERTAINLY HAVE WEALTH IN YOUR POSSESSION. YOU CARRY SOMETHING THAT CAN MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE IN YOUR LIFE AND IN THE LIVES OF OTHERS.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

GOD LOVES YOU AND ALWAYS WANT THE BEST FOR YOU
