Archiving your dream in today’s world is like passing through the eye of a needle for most youth, especially in a society where the government does not I care about the welfare of its citizen. The politicians see politics as a conduit pipe to amass wealth, ‘ chop your own clean mouth’, and leave for the next politicians to take his own share of the national cake [while all the time the poverty rate of the governed continues to grow astronomically.] So when the few who can make it outside politics emerged, their story is that of hard work and grit financial sagacity and a strict economy that only the determined can survive. For the many who admire them, they cannot help but want to hear them talk, write about their story from rags to riches.

2 Samuel 11:1, And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon and besieged Rabbah

But David tarried still at Jerusalem. King David was an accomplished warrior and was gifted with formidable warriors also among whom was dodo. The bible talks about these men in glowing terms see 1 Chronicles 11:11-18, And this is the number of the mighty men whom David had; Jashobeam, an Hachmonite, the chief of the captains: he lifted up his spear against three hundred slain by him at one time. And after him was Eleazar the son of Dodo, the Ahohite, who was one of the three mightiest. He was with David at Pasdammim, and there the Philistines were gathered together to battle, where was a parcel of ground full of barley; and the people fled from before the Philistines. And they set themselves in the midst of that parcel, and delivered it, and slew the Philistines; and the LORD saved them by a great deliverance. Now three of the thirty captains went down to the rock to David, into the cave of Adullam; and the host of the Philistines encamped in the valley of Rephaim. And David was then in the hold, and the Philistines’ garrison was then at Bethlehem. And David longed, and said, Oh that one would give me a drink of the water of the well of Bethlehem, that is at the gate! And the three brake through the host of the Philistines, and drew water out of the well of Bethlehem, that was by the gate, and took it, and brought it to David: but David would not drink of it, but poured it out to the LORD. That is King David——– he loved the Lord and refused to take pleasure in gulping down the water, taking into cognizance that those men had gone through the valley of death to give him a drink. He should give such loyalty displayed by those men to God, only not to man. Truth said.

But there is time for everything. King David was relaxing, and that was to be his undoing. Samson was the power of God in man to do the superhuman, but when he was relaxing with a woman like David, that was to be his undoing.King Solomon inherited a peaceful kingdom courtesy of his father; therefore, the men where available no life of able-bodied men lost in battle, no young woman was suddenly rendered a widow for losing a man in battle. So King Solomon decide another way put them all to his use, and they hardly had time for themselves and family while Solomon had all the time to marry from across the border; from far-away countries and relax in the company of women, which was to be his undoing.

Colossians 3:5 Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:
