Wishes, Ditches and Riches

Wishes are totally free.

Ditches are undesirable and probably consequential.

Riches are desirable but demanding.

Men will rather choose two of these three- riches and wishes.

Who then wants or has ever imagined falling into a ditch?

Though ditches aren’t pleasant, are they without purpose?

Job(a bible character) had riches.

He made so many wishes.

But fell into his own ditch.

Job uttered statements of wishes like “may”, “why” and “Oh.”

Words like “touch”, “strike”, “potsherd”, “scrape”- are all pointers to Job’s predicament.

For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me.”

“And what I dreaded has happened to me.”

“I am not at ease, nor am I quiet;”

“I have no rest, for trouble comes.”

Take it or leave it- ditches are purposeful and necessary.

Haven’t you ask yourself this question?

Why should Jesus learn obedience by the things He suffered!

That implies that there is positivity in every negativity.

Despise your ditches and forget about its glory.

Embrace your ditches and in the right time, its glory will show forth.

Joseph accepted and embrace his.

Other patriarchs took theirs upon themselves.

So why won’t you?

Accept your ditch(es), stop making wishes and you will enjoy its riches.
