One day I visited a friend of mine, Thomas Mouko, who is blind. And because it was the night he did something that taught me a lot.
Upon entering the house, Thomas switched on the light.
And I asked him “Thomas, why did you put on the light yet you can’t see? ………….“ Thomas laughed for a long time, switched off the light and went to the kitchen, after a short while he came with a pot of tea and eggs, placed them perfectly well on the table and switched on the light again
What Thomas said made me shed tears because he said to me, Jay Jay! …… I did not put on the light for my own sake or because I needed it, I did it for you because you needed it since you are not blind like me”.
Then he asked me, “Jay Jay!! How many times have you switched off the light for other people and denied them an opportunity to see light just because you yourself do not need it?”. I thought about that so deeply.
I ask you the same question today, How many times have you put off your lights and denied others an opportunity to see the light while they are in darkness???
May God help us to put on the light for others so they can see.
Why would you let your accounts grow to millions while your brother’s child is going barefooted? Why would you put clothes you don’t wear in the bin while someone out there is almost going naked? Why would food rot in your house while there is someone out there sleeping hungry? That is equivalent to switching off the light in the dark.
