I bet you never knew Ronald Reagan, the 40th president of the United States was once a Radio announcer and motivational speaker. In fact, for large periods of his life, he was a Hollywood champ featuring in over 50 films. However, he got into politics at the film industry and then realised his passion.
Thus, he put away his childish ways and trailed his true path. He became the Governor of California and later ended up at the White house. Reagan was a national leader, but for over 20 years, he thought he never realised this. No wonder, he was the oldest president in America history, assuming office at 69 years and reigned till he was 77, still the oldest.
The founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken, (KFC) Colonel Sanders, had one of the most incredible resumes in human history yet he was nothing but a fiasco, poor and frustrated simply because he did not realise he was a born cook. The day he did, while in his 60s, his life changed.
Elisha was a Prophet but for years, he thought he was a farmer. Peter too was busy hunting fishes, little did he know he ought to be hunting souls for redemption.
Many a times, we invest the larger part of our lives in frivolous activities simply because we have not found Purpose. I love the way Paul put it saying, “when I was a child, I spoke like a child, i thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things.”
Yes, the day you find your purpose, that day you also become a Man. So put away your childish ways and grow up. You have greatness within you!
