Don’t be Angry, it’s Normal

Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Then many warned him to be quiet; but he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
So Jesus stood still and commanded him to be called.
Then they called the blind man, saying to him, “Be of good cheer. Rise, He is calling you.” Mark 10:46-49.

The events of life are designed to passively instruct the wise in order to save him from experiencing the pains and hurts others who went ahead did experience. It’s unfortunate many hardly submit to the instructions of life but unconsciously choose to have personal experiences which many times slow their life’s pace and makes a disaster of their lives and destiny.

Blind Bartimaeus for several years was a community liability, solely dependent on people for motion and vision. He was notorious for living off handouts.

While he was In that state, it’s possible to have been carried away by the people’s consistent “love, care and benevolence “ until opportunity presented itself for the people to prove their true love for him, alas, the opposite was the case. He couldn’t fathom why the people who all these while had shown him “love” would want to deny him the opportunity to be healed and cease to be a burden to them. He didn’t stop to argue with them on why they wanted to stop him but focused on the main subject hence, shouted with every fiber of strength he had left to compel attention knowing that opportunities like that don’t come everyday. Ironically, after he succeeded in commanding Jesus’s attention, the same people turned to give him attention.

1. Majority of people are comfortable with you as long as you are dependent on them for survival but will never give you an opportunity to have a meaningful life. DON’T BE ANGRY, IT’S NORMAL.

2. Very few people are willing to be a bridge; a ladder or a door to a new you, until you meet such people please DON’T BE ANGRY with those you meet, IT’S NORMAL.

3. Refuse to bear grudges, nurse bitterness or fertilize unforgiveness when people refuse to play the role you expected them to play when you want them to play it. DON’T BE ANGRY, IT’S NORMAL.

4. Never waste the energy you need to pursue life’s opportunities on fighting those who appear to work or conspire against you- nature will do that for you.

5. When God turns His face on you, people against their will will be compelled to turn their faces on you for favour.

6. Never be too comfortable when everything about your welfare is dependent on someone or people, it’s the shortest route to a life of ignominy.

7. Anytime your story changes, your company will naturally change.


1. Appreciate your status per time but never be comfortable if it’s not your station.

2. Refuse every opportunity to quarrel or strife, it’s a drainer of life’s energy and a thief of Divine opportunities.

3. Be sensitive to understand the turning moments of your life and seize it.

4. Never engage in compromise of any sort to change your situation, it’s calamity postponed.

5. Do all you can to refuse anger, bitterness, malice or unforgiveness . No one’s misbehavior is worth your peace and joy.

6. Never forget that you are no one’s priority in this life except God.

7. Do all you can to secure the face and favour of God, it will change the face of things around you and turn the face of people towards you.

Never forget, to be informed is to be forearmed


You will never miss the opportunity that will positively change your future!

Grace to handle the misbehavior of people is activated for you!
