Let’s take a moment and ponder on what would happen if Someone walked up to you in the heat of the day. He’s immaculately dressed in a black tux, white shirt, black tie and matching shoes.
The Guy presents to you His Identification card. You blink your eyes in wonder. Why, you say, He’s from my bank! His face has a tender mix of compassion and concern. You look into His eyes and instantly know you can trust Him.
All is going according to the script, until He tells you that there’s £100 million lying fallow in your bank account.
The cautious part of you looks incredulously at the Man standing in front of you.
A hundred million pounds?!!
The Man from your bank then presents your statement of account to you. You stare at the sheet of paper, your mind trying to convince your heart that it’s all a hoax.
But, moments later, with your tear-stained eyes facing the Bank Manager seated opposite you, you find out that there was no scam in the first place.
It was all true!
In fact, the money had been lying dormant in your account right from the day you were born!
You hold back the well of tears threatening to flood your eyes, as you remember the days you forced yourself to fast, since there was no money to buy food.
You remember how you used to walk long distances to your destinations because you had no money for transport.
You remember how you wore one cloth for all your social functions.
You remember how you couldn’t pay your bills….
Just then, the Manager peers down a particular document on the table and tells you that there’s a clause attached to the money in your account.
When you ask what it is, The Manager tells you that after every withdrawal you make, not minding how frequent or how large it is, the account is replenished back to its original amount!
You’d probably have fainted at this point!
Nice story, you might say…
But to me, it’s more than just a ‘nice story’. It’s an analogy that clearly depicts how many pass through life, enduring it while we’ve been given ALL THINGS to enjoy.
You see, in real life, we are all given a BLANK CHEQUE to write out whatever we want. For some, they write exorbitantly; others write less impressive figures. Still, some others do not even know that such a cheque exists in the first place!
The key here is KNOWLEDGE. Because, unless one KNOWS that he/she has priviledges and perks, he/she would probably just get by with life.
But regardless of the presence/absence of the knowledge, the TRUTH remains that everything has been given to us to enjoy!!!
That’s what abundant life’s all about.
You don’t have to struggle with lack of money or the absence of good health. You don’t have to battle with anxiety or certainty over the future.
You don’t have to struggle anymore because you’ve been given ALL THINGS that pertain to life here on earth.
All you have to do is to go to your banker, withdraw from the ‘pool of unlimited resources’ that has been freely given to you and live your life to the FULLEST.
It’s the good life. No scam!
