MEN OF GOLD DON’T WEAR GOLD – PERSONAL LESSON
Yesterday I had to visit somewhere and it was raining so I did not want to drive there since I was not too familiar with the road, so I parked my car somewhere close and used a keke (tricycle).
While I was there I got a call from a long time friend reminding me of my promise to her husband over a job, so I quickly told her my location, and asked her to tell her husband to meet me up ASAP since I will be leaving town soon, but I told her to tell her husband to meet me up where I parked my car since that place was a popular land mark .
I don’t know her husband and we have never met before. As I sent her the address, she called me back and was so excited that I was even around her area which will make it easy for him because he did not even have transport to come out,things was that bad. So I told her that he should pick a drop and I will pay.
In order not to keep him stranded I had to start rushing back to where I packed my car. God, I even entered under the rain, cold, just to meet up with him so he will not be stranded. As I was walking under the rain I saw a keke and stopped it.
The keke man asked me to beg the man inside so he will allow me join him since i was drenched, so I started begging. The man refused and said I was wet. I told him I will sit to one side, and he refused, saying except I pay for both his fare and mine.
I agreed, then he allowed me. As I entered this man kept me uncomfortable, saying if my wet clothes touch him again I will get down. I just kept my cool until I finally got to my destination. I did not even reach when I stopped at the junction and paid then used my legs to walk to my car, since it was very close.
I was inside my car warming myself, then I got a call from my friend saying her husband was around, so I described my car and he came. I saw someone knocked on my car glass, wound down and it was this same man in a keke with me. Gosh!
I was suppose to pay the keke man, and recommend him for a job? Tears rolled down my eyes, I brought out N3,000, gave him, started my car and zoomed off. My friend has been calling and sending me messages…
Be careful, many times men of gold don’t wear gold. Be nice! Angels do not wear ID cards.

Awesome Bishop. Good lesson to learn there. Indeed I had the similar experience at my working place. This man was attached to work with us but he did not report instead just packed his car at our working place. So that day he drove us to our destination. On our way back he was quite rude such that my assistant officer was really shocked.
The following day when he reported for work I was with him with another different officer. So I walked over to accounts office to do one or two things. Then he wanted something from the senior supervisor gladly the other office told him that the person who was standing next to that one walking over there is the in charge here. He just screamed an said ugh that one, are you sure its her? Then he walked over to me and said what he had to say. I attended to him and since then it has been good morning good afternoon madam.
Thank you so much Bishop for this powerful word. Indeed men of gold don’t wear gold.
