Bible Reading:  2 Kings 10.30, Joel 1.3, Psalm 78:6

Memory Verse: A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children. Proverbs 13:22a (NKJV)

In 1876, Tetteh Quarshie (1842 – 25th December, 1892), a Ghanaian farmer, arrived in Bioko, a beautiful island in Equatorial Guinea. He discovered the existence of cocoa bean crops and decided to import them into his country. Today, Ghana is the world’s second largest cocoa bean producer. Tetteh Quarshie is a generational thinker. He was not only thinking about his household but an entire country. A generational thinker WILL ALWAYS SEE BEYOND HIMSELF and his immediate gratification.

Sir, are you a generational thinker? With the way you are going about your life with little or no divine zeal, are you sure you really want to rewrite your family history? No one has ever traveled abroad in your lineage, and you are holding God and kingdom service lightly? It doesn’t happen that way. As a generational thinker, you must secure God’s divine approval and sell yourself out to whatsoever He will be committing into your hands until you strike a covenant of transgenerational blessings with the Almighty upon your lineage.

In the society, as a transgenerational thinker, you wouldn’t throw sachet water into the water ways or leave public water running after use. As a tenant who thinks about the future generation of those who will use the same house, you wouldn’t engage in any form of willful destruction of your rented apartment.

While you have right to protest as a citizen, you shouldn’t destroy government property meant for posterity. Until we start seeing government properties as our own properties, we may keep recycling our pain, especially as Africans. Government vehicles meant for monitoring and controlling of projects suddenly disappears in less than six months while others are in various dilapidated state. Generational thinkers don’t think like this, rather, they do everything possible to see the people coming after them benefit in a bigger version from their labour of today.

Quote: A politician thinks of the next election; a stateman of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his party; a statesman for that of his country. The statesman wishes to steer, while the politician is satisfied to drift – James Freeman Clarke

Prophetic Decree: Africa shall rise again, in Jesus name.
