TOPIC: ARISTOTLE: SUCCESS WITHOUT A SUCCESSOR!

Basic Scripture: 2 Kings 5: 20-27

When Alexander died in 323 B.C., Aristotle wisely retreated to the pro-Macedonian base of Chalcis. He was reportedly trying to save the Athenians from sinning twice against philosophy (the first sin being the execution of Socrates. He died there in 322 of a disease of the digestive organs. Following Socrates and Plato, Aristotle had a great wealth of knowledge and wisdom to build upon, but he left no successor who could surpass him.

His work changed the direction of the western learning/education and continues to play a real part in modern studies. His work in the sciences became obsolete, particularly in modern philosophy because he had no successor! But his contribution to Biology would remain unsurpassed for centuries. However, his contribution to Humanities and Social Sciences continues to provide basis for debate and a guide to academic learning.

Moreover, he essentially created the field of LOGIC and discovered SYLLOGISM is a LOGICAL ARGUMENT INVOLVING THREE PROPOSITIONS: 1. A formal deductive argument made up of major premise. 2.

And what the Holy Ghost is saying to a user of today’s Word is that you must remember that NOBODY LIVES FOREVER! You must reach a place where you become a mentor to others by your lifestyle! Success is adding value to others. The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership! A great leader understands that success without a successor is failure.

But I know that sometimes, successors are difficult to find or mentor. An example is Gehazi and Elisha! Elijah and Elisha his successor and mentee, butElisha had no successor! His successor –to-be (GEHAZI) was a GREEDY MAN, LIAR, AND A THIEF, so instead of catching a double portion of anointing, he got a double portion of the Annoyance of his master! Instead of blessings, he got the curse of LEPROSY! What he left behind for his generation (His LEGACY) was LEPROSY!

Oh God! Even in my African arena, great political leaders find it difficult to have sincere successors because of corruption and betrayal! Use today’s devotional to ask God for sincere God-sent-successors! Always pray that long after you have departed this planet, YOUR LEGACY will glow brighter and brighter! Amen!
