1 Timothy 4:12 Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
What can you do with N12 million in a country like Nigeria? Well, you could buy a nice car and registered with Uber, walla! you are your own boss raking in at least 150 thousands naira every. You’re returning from the united Arab emirate, U.A.E will be a talk of the town and you can even give testimony about the goodness of God! Here you are in another man’s country driving a taxi for a company when you can, as of now, be your own boss? No doubt all these thoughts could have raced though the mind of brother Abraham Airaodion when a man left a cool 100, 000 Dirhams, (N12 million) that was forgotten in his cab.The taxi driver who attends Omega Fire Ministry (Dubai-UAE) and identified as Abraham Airaodion discovered a passenger had forgotten the whopping amount of money in his taxi and so he showed true integrity and returned it.Abraham who works with Sharjah Taxi Cooperation was honoured by the organization on Monday, December 13, 2021. They gave him a certificate of appreciation which he brought to Church and displayed while sharing his testimony.
In as much as Abraham, has identified with his church there in Dubai, it was not the church , but his faith and the belief in the word of God, which he allowed to renew his mind that made him took such exemplary action’ even though many in social media are out calling him names but he choose not to do their wishes. This is the action serious any real christian would take. The money is not for you and your God has millions of honorable ways to blees you by not taking what does not belong to you. Again, Abraham could have easily taken it and denied all knowledge about it. Who locks u a man for a crime? You do not have evidence? If many African youth who are unfortunately into BEC scam are like Abraham, wonderful parents would not be crying like they do now.
Our thoughts, way of life, thinking must be different once we come to know christ; we allow the word of God to take control and do what the word says in any situation. The bible says in the book of Romans 12:2, And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Those in social media who say he missed his luck are part of the world and that is how they reason, but in the above passage, we are told to be different by allowing the word of God to be our guide. Somebody said, what would a certificate do for him? Well, that is a testament to his exceptional honesty. It could open more doors for him? It has given him a good name already. He has made his country proud; he has dared to differ from the Nigerians seen in that country as fraudsters and scammers. Though many who do not go to church can also do same, but Abrahan shows that it was God who stopped him from taking that money, hence he associated with the church. Indeed, in a church many are turned from rebels to peace makers, from thieves to honest men and from questuinable characters to people of worth; it is the word of God that changes us. When we become christians we see as the bible sees,allow the bible to guide us in our dealings.Psalms 119:105, NUN. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
