Winning Wisdom: Create Value

Author: Ese Ehimare Dave
Topic: Create Value [Wednesday, 5th April 2017]

Then Peter arose and went with them. When he was come, they brought him into the upper chamber: and all the widows stood by him weeping, and shewing the coats and garments which Dorcas made, while she was with them. - Acts 9:39

Scriptures say in Proverbs 10:7 "we have happy memories of the godly, but the name of a wicked person rots away." People are remembered for the value they create in the lives of others. When I was in my early teenage age, I had a friend that I liked so much. We always hang out then and sing together. But one thing I will never forget about her was that she was the first person that encouraged me to be a writer. I used to write articles and give to her to read. Her words were always filled with appraisals of how good I was in writing. The value her words of created in my life is still being felt till date. Those are the kind of things God has created us to do.

Creating value not only goes a long way in blessing and enhancing lives, it also have its effect in your life in a positive way, even more than you could ever imagine. Dorcas, in Acts 9, would never have imagined that the value her good works created in the lives of people will spur them to  bring Peter to resurrect her when she first died. She would have been doing what she did with a loving heart, which is very essential, without expecting much from them, but at the end, the value she created with the coats and garments she made for the people within her sphere of influence, influenced them to send for Apostle Peter to come bring her back to life. And yes, he did just that for them, and I am certain she continued creating value.

Products and services in the business world can only survive if they continue to create affordable value for the people that use them. Affordable here is relative and since this is not a business school, I will skip that. But essentially, every product and services must create value for people if not they will go into extinction. We are called by God to create value. Our lives are fueled by the value we create. It is what keeps us going and spurs us to do more. Find your niche and space so you can create the value God has called you to create in the lives of people. Don't settle for anything less than a life that is valuable to your sphere of contact.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank You because You chose and ordained me to create value in my sphere of influence. By Your Spirit that is at work in and through me, I create the right value and enhance the lives of the people in my sphere of influence, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
