Welcome to yet another wonderful episode of the godlyminds insightful series. I must start by saying YOU AND I HAVE BEEN STUPID IN HIS EYES BEFORE, anyway that’s yet to be proven😀. Being in a place like this where godly minds are built is for rare people like you who care about their mindset. The Story you are about to read is similar to the likes of [ HOW FACEBOOK ALMOST RUINED MY FAMILY 💡, How I got Gonorrhea 💡, “IS MY BREAST, NOT OUR BREAST!”🎭 ] like I always say, this very one is my best😀 – more coming.
Who still remembers the family of Pastor Chukwuma and Teacher Chijioke? If this is your first time to this blog, then trust me, you are just a Click 🎭 away from catching up with the story that transformed the minds of my many of my email subscribers with testimonies.
Running a family is not an easy task. Both husband and wife should be like-minds about certain things or one would have to SACRIFICE his/her will for the other.
So Today the attention is on Pastor Chukwuma’s Family. Guess what? He just told his wife Mrs Uju – “God thinks you are stupid”. Hmmm! What must have led to him saying this? Is he really godly to think that God would call his own loving wife STUPID? . Let’s see as the story unfolds. Stay glued to your Phone or PC as we hope this short story builds in you the God kind of mindset.
It’s yet another Sunday morning in the city of Anambra State, Nigeria. Just like it was the last time in “IS MY BREAST, NOT OUR BREAST!”🎭Pastor Chukwuma is already set for church service at 7am – Service starts 8:30am. Guess who he is waiting for. You are right✔ Madam Uju is really busy on here make-up this time.
Never Rush Your Wife During Her Make-up. That’s her selling point. Just let her do her thing if you want to smile to the occasion with her. 😀
Not to worry about Pastor Chukwuma 😀. Today he isn’t staring at any breast, he is steadily reading his New Living Translation Application Study Bible outside the corridor as he waits for his wife. Mr Chijioke and his Wife Mrs Chinwe have been taken to church by their son Obiora – (hope you remember him in the story of “How I got Gonorrhea” ). Now back to Pastor Chukwuma.
Over recent times Mr Chukwuma has been spending a lot of cash💶 on his wife as it gets towards Christmas🎅. She needed to by new cloths, new shoes, new bags and some other jewelry as she loves to look trendy. But there has always been one problem with Madam Uju. She seems not to be particular about the kind of dresses she puts on, especially when “you know you are a pastor’s wife” – says Mr Chukwuma. She does not dress BAD or GOOD. She is just difficult to place on any category. More of like lukewarm.
It’s good to be consistent in all you do. That’s the personality you build in people’s mind, Even in the mind of God.
On several occasions, I have noticed him correcting his wife. Guess what Madam Uju always says in defense of here dressing. She quotes my favourite verse in scripture – this is sometimes always read at marriage ceremonies
“Your adornment must not be merely external—with interweaving and elaborate knotting of the hair, and wearing gold jewelry, or [being superficially preoccupied with] dressing in expensive clothes; but let it be [the inner beauty of] the hidden person of the heart, with the imperishable quality and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, [one that is calm and self-controlled, not over-anxious, but serene and spiritually mature] which is very precious in the sight of God.” — 1 Peter 3:3-4
Then Madam Uju we be like “The Bible is not against my dressing dear, God is interested in my Heart as it tells the state of my spirit” – You Know My Heart Love, my intentions are purr😃. With this, Mr Chukwuma is mute. This statement is more like a regular jargon amongst Christians today, and it’s true. But why is Uju thought of as being Stupid then?
So while Pastor Chukwuma was waiting, he just felt like reading the regular verse his wife quotes each time he tries to correct her about dressing modestly. “WHAT A SHOCK!!! THANK YOU HOLY SPIRIT ” – exclaimed Mr Chukwuma.
What did he see?😯 He happened to have read the same verse a bit further which says; “For in this way in former times the holy women, who hoped in God, used to adorn themselves, being submissive to their own husbands and adapting themselves to them;” — 1 Peter 3:5. Mr Chukwuma now had to start from verse 1 of the same 1 Peter 3 and he read down to 12. Pastor Chukwuma has all been understanding and submissive to the will of his noble wife. In fact he understood that love supposed to be mutual. Thus, both parties should submit to one another. But “why doesnt she listen to me? ” – exclaimed Mr Chukwuma.
Just at that moment, the long-awaited queen of the compound steps out In all elegance. I always waited to see her pass by, her perfume is pleasant – very expensive I guess. To her greatest surprise, her husband said;
Pastor: Dear, you are looking good. The whole church will know you came today😀.
Wife : Aww! Dear thank you. Glory to Jesus. Hope you have a great sermon from God to preach today. Can’t wait to learn from your wisdom.
Pastor : Sure dear. I hope it ministers to you and everyone as it does to me.
Both head to church.
After the usual, it was time for the sermon. Guess the Title. Lol yes! The title woke every sleeping head and opened every deaf ear of talkative in the choir😀. Immediately he mentioned the Title, even the ushers who loved to move up and down stood still to listen.
Today the Title of my message is “GOD THANKS YOU ARE STUPID“. You see my brothers & sisters in Christ, there is a difference between saying “you act stupid” and “you are stupid” – (at this time the blogger gentle_george just entered church jehjeh. Late comer😀 ). If we do not submit ourselfs to the godly council of one another; be it father to son, wife to husband, brother to sister, friend to friend, boss to employees and vise versa, God thinks we are stupid. Today my sermon would be very short because I need us to really reflect on this subject to have a change in our lives this week. So reading from my bible in Proverbs 12:1 it says;
Whoever loves instruction and discipline loves knowledge, But he who hates reproof and correction is stupid. — Proverbs 12:1
When you don’t like anyone to correct you except yourself, God thinks you are stupid. I believe you agree that God is the author of scripture – 2 Timothy 3:16. Being stupid is not like God is coursing you. Noo! We are not under the course of the Law. God is simply telling us our character. So before we call anyone STUPID, we need to ask ourselves if we ain’t more stupid a times. With this, I round-up this sermon in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. May God Help us be Doers of his Word and not hearers only.
This message transformed Mrs Uju for good as well as the whole church. Ever since she came back from church, she has been so up and doing. She now listens to her husband without putting on unnecessary defences. She now appreciates and respects the views of her husband just like he values hers too. Wisdom was indeed profitable to direct the pastor to speak objectively and not like his message was directed to any one.
TRUE CHRISTIANS LOVE CORRECTIONS BECAUSE WE ARE ALL GROWING TO BE LIKE OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.
INDEED THERE IS POWER IN THE WORD OF GOD TO BUILD GODLY MINDS.
