Be Content With Your Harvest – Rev. Fr. Wisdom


Many of us today in these modern times always want more than we can chew. There is absolutely nothing wrong in aspiring to acquire the good things of life, but most times, the things we really need at that given moment has been provided for but we are too busy desiring much more to recognize this.

They say the best things in life are free.

Yesterday was the past, today is the present and tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. The reason why today is called ‘present’ is to remind us that it is indeed a gift to us, a gift that is meant to be treasured, loved, nursed, adored, reverenced and taken seriously.

“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”

Just as the writer in Ecclesiastes 1:2 said, ‘vanity upon vanity, all is vanity’; Rev. Fr. Wisdom Chikezie in his Sunday homily addressed the church on the need to be content with their harvest. He said we are too busy concentrating with the outside forgetting the most valuable part of our being, ‘our inside’.


‘Ladies of nowadays spend huge sums of money, spend countless hours in front of a mirror just to look good for the next person – painting, rubbing and beautifying every possible physical area neglecting the depth of their innermost soul, the battle ground of the enemy’, he said.

The time has come for us to appreciate what has been given to us and shut out all forms of distractions that may bring about lack of contentment in our work places, our marriages, our individual lives and the way we relate to others.

During Sunday’s mass on 31st July, five (5) families danced to the altar for their family harvest thanksgiving with their gifts in appreciation for all the good manifested in their lives.


They don’t have the world at their feet still they are content because they serve He that created all that is to be craved for. That He is – the Holy trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Be guided.
