Bible Reading:  2 Samuel 15:31, Job 5:12

Memory Verse:  He thwarts the plans of the crafty, so that their hands achieve no success. Job 5:12 (NIV)

…Continued from yesterday. It was from this state that I was able to secure a scholarship to study after three years of working with my principal after NYSC. He didn’t want me to go because the computer school was a success story but he facilitated my comfortable arrival in the United States. All this happened within 12 years. I have a Ph.D. in Forensic and Information Technology. One day,  I was speaking at the conference of World Forensic Scientists in Japan. After delivering my lecture, there was a standing ovation from the participants all over the world. Among them was my old-time lecturer.

After the proceeding, I walked up and greeted him, he acted like he couldn’t recall who I was so I reminded him of his exact words which were “let me see how you will make it in this profession”,  I am the boy you said those words to. He was astonished. I advised, “try to be a mentor to the young students, you don’t know who and what they will become.” “Not only have I made it from this profession but internationally am recognized, you must have been seeing my publications, I was the one who paid $5500 to sponsor your trip for this conference.

“Sir, yearly you will be invited, to speak at a conference like this, it’s my way of saying thank you for influencing my posting to Kebbi state that particular year. If you had not done it, I would not have made it to where I am today. You meant evil but God turn it into good. I hope your hotel room (Room 312) has a nice view of Tokyo?” He stood rooted to the spot, he was too dazed to speak as I was taken away to meet other professionals in the tech business. He later sent a mail of apology when ASUU went on strike, I was informed he was boasting at the department in Nigeria that he is the only lecturer in Africa, who was invited to participate at the GRAND Inc World Conference and subsequently, he would be one of the speakers.

I guess a leopard never changes its spot. I am glad he is not poor but he didn’t meet me where he left me 12 years ago. No matter what anyone does to you, continue to be hardworking and rely on God’s grace. A man’s gift one day will always make a way for him.

QuoteWhat goes around comes around.
