ONE OF THE MAJOR LESSONS LEARNT BY THOSE WHO CHANGED THE COURSE OF HISTORY WHETHER IN THE BIBLE OR JUST HUMAN HISTORY IS ONE OF DELAYED GRATIFICATION.

DELAYED GRATIFICATION IS ABOUT ENJOYING THE BENEFIT OR THE PRIVILEGE LATER, BETTER AND FOR LONGER.

During the hyperinflation era we all learnt the wrong habits of both wealth creation and maintaining wealth. We learned how to consume all our benefits here and now.

IN THE PROCESS WE ROBBED FUTURE GENERATIONS.

It is because of our inability to delay most of our benefits that we as a nation are in debt to the tune of $10 billion, as a result we have mortgaged future generations. They must pay for what we consumed over the past 33 years!

Abram and Sarah could not wait any longer for a child and so they connived that Sarah's maidservant bear Abraham a son. The result was Ishmael, we would not have the Middle East crisis that we have today had they practiced delayed gratification.

When our lifestyles are not matched by regular revenues we are stealing from future generations because we obviously get into debt on consumptive goods. That's why we need nothing short of a miracle.

PEOPLE WANT CARS THEY CANNOT SERVICE, SEND CHILDREN TO SCHOOLS THEY CANNOT AFFORD, STAY IN HOMES THEY CANNOT AFFORD TO MAINTAIN, PLAN WEDDINGS WE CANNOT AFFORD, GET INTO FASHION TRENDS THEY CANNOT MAINTAIN: BECAUSE WE WANT IT ALL AND WE WANT IT NOW!

Proverbs 28:19, He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who follows frivolity will have poverty enough!

1 Timothy 6:6-10, Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

IT TOOK ABRAHAM 25 YEARS BEFORE HE RECEIVED ISAAC IN HIS HANDS; IT TOOK JACOB 20 YEARS TO PUT TOGETHER THE RESOURCES THAT FORMED THE NATION OF ISRAEL: IT TOOK JOSEPH 13 YEARS BEFORE HIS DREAM WAS FINALLY REALIZED; IT TOOK DAVID 13 YEARS BEFORE HE ROSE TO THE THRONE OF ISRAEL AFTER BEING ANOINTED TO BE KING.
