“God who made the birds never made bird cages. It’s men who make bird cages and after a while we become cramped and can do nothing but chirp and stand on one leg” (Oswald Chambers). Refuse to be caged by people’s opinion, approval, or censure. Had Joseph waited for affirmation of his dreams, he’d never have become Prime Minister. Had David waited for validation of his ability, he’d never have become giant-slayer and King. Had Paul waited for the confirmation of his conversion, he’d never have become a great Apostle. Don’t be caged by others’ doubts or fears, envy or hate, hypocrisy or mediocrity. Don’t chirp in anyone’s cage. Fly like God’s bird and sing your freedom song! (Jeremiah 1:5-7; 29:11)—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
