Caption: PAY THE PRICE
Pro 23:23 says: “Buy the truth, and sell it not; also WISDOM, and instruction, and understanding.” Matthew 25:9 explicitly says: “But the WISE answered, saying, ..but go ye rather to them that sell (value), and buy for yourselves.”
Remember it was said that wisdom gives value to the wise. A mentor and a Lagos based tax doctor Mr Kayode Okunola said, “it costs money to make money.” Meaning, money won’t produce another money in value if it’s not expended. If you don’t expense/expend, don’t expect anything. Investment in value involves expenditures in the expectation of future benefits.
So many people are expecting so much from life without investing anything to life. Continuous personal development is a worthwhile investment to increasing your value. Stop thinking that learning and education stop the day you graduated from schools, it is a starting point. For you to be relevant, current knowledge and learning must be the order of the day. If you want to rise up in value, there’s a price to pay. U’re Graced.
Action cue: Pay the price and get the rise. You need to get UP to stay UP. You need a ladder of wisdom not only to get UP but also to stay UP.
JESUS IS GOD!
