Nigeria’s most popular blogger, took to her Instagram page to share a heart warming photo of her, hugging a primary school girl.
“All she wanted was a hug to put a smile on her face’ ?? Here’s what I want to say about being kind to other people. I learnt very early in life that one of the easiest ways to get blessings and continue to get favour from God is to be kind and helpful to others. Remember, God said whatever you do for others, you do for me.
I don’t know what spirit led me but I started as a teenager to give to others. It didn’t matter how little I had, I was always happy to share, to give, to bless someone else and I don’t mean just family members, it included friends, acquintances and strangers. And the great thing about giving is that people always remember. When you do something so kind for someone, it occupies the biggest part of their hearts and their gratitude turn to prayers and these prayers send goodness that just continues to follow you.
I gave back then because I derived joy from putting smiles on people’s faces and I also knew it was what God would want us to do. I give now for the above reasons but also because I know what it is not to have.
I’d recommend from now on for you to be kinder to others and help as many people as you can because it’s only by giving that you are able to receive more than you already have. To be honest, I think it’s one of the secrets to my success. God just never departs from a giver.
But in saying that, you also have to differentiate people who need genuine help and people who are just leeches, greedy and want to take advantage of your kindness. Those ones you can ignore.
Lastly, giving doesn’t necessarily only mean money or other material things. Giving could also be your time, kind words, a listening ear, sharing love…and so on! It’s to give of yourself!
So be kinder in 2018 and remember, we rise by lifting others!
