That you are poor shouldn’t be a reason why you should see yourself as inferior. 

Not having that money now does not mean that you will not have it in later life.

It’s unfortunate the way things are turning out in our today’s society, even parents are the sole actors. Instead of parents to support their children to becoming what they wish to be in life, they end up being the people pushing them into committing crimes.

That you are poor today is a story you will tell tomorrow when the hand of the clock changes.

The truth is, you are never created to die a poor man. Everybody is created for a purpose and trust me that purpose is designed for your success.

Understanding Your Purpose on Earth

Like I said earlier, you are brought into this world for a purpose and that purpose you must achieve before you die.

A Catholic priest said that untimely death is not bad but dying an unholy death is destructive.

Any man who dies without knowing Christ has died an unholy death but when reverse becomes the case, then you are said to have died a holy death.

Your purpose in life is something you must achieve. Do not do things simply because other persons are doing it. Do things because they please your Maker.

As a person, it is your responsibility to settle down to understand the reason why you are created in this world.
