Poor Love Investments
...Poor Love Investments...
Life, I believe, is a function of investments and returns. You invest your time and money in the school, and get knowledge and a certificate in return. You invest your time in apprenticeship and get skills in return. You invest your time, energy, and skills in your job and get a salary in return. You invest your time reading this BC, and you get value in return. That's how life rolls; its all about investments and returns.
Looking at Samson, I observed that one of his principal mistakes was poor investments. He invested his time in the wrong ventures, he invested his strength in the wrong causes, and invested his love in the wrong person.
Samson was sincere with his love for Delilah; he so genuinely loved her that he didn't consider his destiny too risky to put at her mercy. But as sincere as he was, the investment was wrong, and he got death as returns of that investment.
Like him, many people keep investing love in the wrong people, and on the long run, they are left with unpalatable returns to live with. I looked closely at Delilah, and the Holy Spirit taught me 7 kinds of people I shouldn't invest my love in; I'll be sharing this today. Please note, this is not the love-thy-neighbour-as-thyself kind of love, I am addressing love as it pertains to a relationship between a man and a woman. Let's do it!!
Don't invest your love in:
#1. Folks who value the material more than people.
#2. Folks who offer you comfort in exchange for your core values.
#3. Folks who are not committed to your fulfilment on earth.
#4. Folks who use love as a leverage for their selfish desires.
#5. Folks who are easily manipulated.
#6. Folks with uncertain or divided allegiance.
#7. Folks you can't read (people who live as masquerades, always hiding something)
Be wise friend. Don't invest your love in the wrong person. Like Samson, the returns could be deadly and destiny-truncating.
God Bless You.
