My name is Tomorrow
"not my real name", I own a company, none of my staff knew me as the
owner except the Manager and the Secretary. (I had told them not to disclose my
identity). I don't usually go for a visit.
One day, I visited the
company and I saw my Ex-wife, who had thrown me out of my own house. I asked
the Manager and he said she is one of their staff.
I instructed the
Manager to promote her to Personnel Officer and gave her a car, a bungalow, a garden
boy, security and other emoluments. An undeserved position though, which he
A month later, I went
there as a job seeker. As soon as she saw my application and CV, she
rejected me outright, threw my application at my face, and immediately retrieved
it from the floor and tore it to pieces and threw it into the waste bin. After
regaling me with all my past, she informed me I would never get employment or
an opportunity at the company. Also, she swore on heaven and the earth that all
this would happen. She boldly declared that the only way I’d get employment at
the company was over her cold dead body.
I came the following
day with another application and went on my knees to beg her, but she refused
and spat into the waste bin and said even if I was the only bridge to cross to
come to work, she would opt for a boat and called the security men to throw me
out, so I left.
One day, I went to the
company in my real identity and entered her office with the Manager who
introduced me to her, she quickly knelt down crying and begging me, "the
proposed rejected bridge.” She informed me that her entire family depended on
her for survival. If her employment was terminated, she added, life would be
absolutely horrendous not only for her but also for her entire family. She even
promised to remarry me.
We both stood there motionless and speechless which left the Manager befuddled. Many things started racing in my head. Should I call the police? Should I strip her of her current position to her former place? Should I cancel the unqualified benefits given to her? Should I accept such a woman back?
I'm still standing at
her office indecisive. If you were in my shoes, what would you do?
THERE IS TOMORROW
dealing with people, you must never forget that there is tomorrow and you
might need them tomorrow. You may request help from the people who
are asking for your help today, so help as much as you can.
Life is like a moving
wheel, sometimes you are up and sometimes down. Sometimes we destroy
the bridges that we might need to help us cross back tomorrow. Sometimes we
treat people as though there is never going to be tomorrow. We sometimes act as
though we will never need help from anyone. Remember there's tomorrow.
Joseph helped the
cupbearer in prison and later the cupbearer connected Joseph with Pharaoh.
Imagine how Potiphar's wife felt when she heard that Joseph was now the
Governor of Egypt after she had falsely accused him. The brother who sold
Joseph away ended up being fed by him. Don't ever think of going to the extreme
with your offenders, they might be rescuers tomorrow. Always remember that
there is tomorrow and it will surely come.
The little help you
give to people today will profit you tomorrow.
May the good Lord touch
your heart to live your life knowing that there is tomorrow.
In Everything You Do,
Always Remember That, There Is Tomorrow.
IS TOMORROW!!! !!
