Security companies are everywhere, each with its own profile trying to entice companies and even individuals into booking them, the more packages you have to match and meet every need, the more people will buy into your company. When the services offered are good enough, then you are guaranteed of referrals from different people, which is good for your business. However, whenever a security company fails to protect what was agreed on in the contract, then there is a problem. Was it the guard on duty? was it an inside job? or was it just bad luck that thieves broke in and stole! Well bad luck or not, inside job or not, truth is; every time there is a change of guard, certain things have to change. The guard that was there during the day will have to go and usher in the night guard, briefly explain how the day was and then leave and the cycle continues every time there is a change of guard, at no single time will the property not be protected or guarded.
The world we live in has 2 major companies, one that purports to be good, while it isn’t (devil), while the other one that is very good and all its deeds can be seen by all (God)! When we were sinners and indulged ourselves with the pleasures of the world, we could care less about what we did, but truth is the devil was always looking for ways he could continue to entice us that we may get deeper and deeper into immorality and completely forget about God. However, his company doesn’t offer much, in fact it doesn’t have anything to offer! there is nothing that he can bring to the table! He’s the father of all lies. All he does is entice! gives you a taste of the world, once you like it, you indulge and plunge deep! However, everything that you tasted at the beginning is now gone, your lost and worst still, you don’t even know who you are anymore! The biggest mistake that many people do is we do not vet this company! we don’t ask for any referrals, we just jump right into the mucky waters thinking its all fun and games and end up sinking.
When you want to serve God, you cannot continue to live your life the same way you used to! something gotta give! And when you live your life for God, you have to accept His will over your life, sometimes it may be tough and may not make any sense at that time, but truth is this, He who knows the future, knows whats best! Why? because He can see into the future, we can’t! Letting go of things we are used to can be really hard and even painful sometimes. I have seen how my sons react when I discipline them, by making them forfeit what they love best, but in the end the results are good. Its the same with God, the same way that as parents we want the best for our children, is the same way that God wants the best for us, He is our Father in Heaven and He loves us all.
Change your guard! take up your cross and follow Jesus! Even when it doesn’t seem to make any sense, just know it will make sense eventually and all will be well.
