II Kings 4:2 NKJV “So Elisha said to her, “What shall I do for you? Tell me, what do you have in the house?” And she said, “Your maidservant has nothing in the house but a jar of oil.”
I have come across a number of people eager to start up businesses, most times due to the need to survive. And they have big budgets; going around looking for sponsors, finding none. So they get frustrated and angry, and then they give up. I hope I can minister to such people today.
What people lack is not really capital; what people lack is understanding of getting things done. And sometimes they are too proud to start small, and lazy to start from the bottom. Apple Inc. is valued at over $500bn today, but do you know that it was started without a dime? It was started in a garage, and all they had was an idea! They sold their idea, got an order, got materials on credit, did the job, and as they say, the rest is history!
Listen to me: nobody owes you anything! But if you have understanding, you will eventually get everything you have ever wanted in life. Look around you; people are selling water! You don’t need a million to start that. The Igwe twins started with the little money they got from their father’s burial! If it’s only one item you can start with, start! You have a jar of oil somewhere in your house or in your head; it’s enough to start your journey to prosperity and success!
