TOUCHING STORY: ‘SERVED BREAD ON A PLATE USED FOR FEEDING DOGS’

Chibamba Kanyama Writes:In the 1970s, when I was a little kid, a relative served bread to my brother and I on a plate that had on occasions been used for feeding dogs. She could not allow us to join her in the house where she ate with her children. When I took the bread back under protest, she severely rebuked me, telling me I was not a King to deserve better. 
Little did I know 30 plus years later, I would take care of her, and joyfully so. It was that action that provoked me to work harder in life, to deserve better. Bad experiences usually spur us to do better, and when we succeed, we use our elevation to  love and appreciate everyone. Remember what Joseph said to his brethren when they came begging for food in Egypt and he was Prime Minister? 
‘You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.’ Gen 50:20.
Some of you will never achieve greatness unless someone provokes you. Like John Maxwell says, sometimes you have to hurt enough in order to change! Take it well and seize the opportunity before you.
