It’s MARCH!! My month…. I am happy…. HAPPY CELEBRATION TO ALL MARCH BORN!
*lets get to business for the day*
I was at a retreat organized by the youths of my diocese and the guest speaker who happens to be our Provost emphasized on a thoughtful and powerful statement.
He said ” The youths of this generation, the time we spend watching the television , if it continues at that rate; nobody will watch you in life”
It is indeed sad that the media is the ultimate time waster of this generation, we have ignored the fact that we need to also work hard to be seen on the television someday. Many of the great men we see on the television were busy working,reading,innovating and inventing while their mates were having fun and enjoying their lives. THe media has invented alot of fascinating and mind thrilling programmes which has become gods to mosyA youths in our dear nation. Africa magic has changed the mind and dreams of alot of people who are not self controlled.
Those behind the social media are working hard in their duties to entertain people, that is their passion , they worked hard to get there… have you ever thought of that? WASTING HOURS WITH THE TELEVISION IS DEFINITELY A HUGE WASTE OF TIME WHEN THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT AND RELEVANT THINGS TO BE DONE AT THAT MOMENT.
I dare not criticze the media, that is their duty and vision…it is a great thing cuz they could entertain us to satisfaction, and that is because they have worked harder to know the wants of the society but then, as a young guy/lady; the television should not be our priority, we’ve gat mpre than enough to get busy with.
REST, IF YOU MUST BUT DON’T BE LAZY…
The hope of this great nation should not be upon T.V freaks but upon those who are willing to be distinct and control d urge of time wasting.
Watch the television if you must but put self control into action..remember, each second you waste counts and each hour wasted will always be accounted for; Later in the nearest future.
If wole Soyinka was like you, would you even hear about him today?
If Pastor Enoch Adeboye was like you, would you know him today?
If Fela Durotoye was a tv freak like you, would he have been a top public speaker today?
If Dr. Benjamin carson had not been stopped by his mum from excessive watching of the television, I doubt if he would have been successful in life….
It is loud and clear to us….CAUTION!!
