LIGHTER MOOD: Be a Teacher or Leader who Inspires…!



LIGHTER Mood: Money 💰 is Number 6 in Yoruba Land...!

A young man saw his primary school teacher at a wedding ceremony.

He went to greet him with all respect and admiration!!

He said to him: “Can you still recognize me, Sir?’

‘I don’t think so!!’, said the teacher, ‘could you please remind me how we met?’

The student recounted: “I was your student in the 3rd Grade, I stole a Wristwatch belonging to my then classmate because it was unique and fascinating.

My Classmate came to you crying that his Wrist Watch had been stolen and you ordered all Students in the class to stand on a straight line, facing the wall with our hands up and our eyes closed so you could check our pockets.

At this point, I became jittery and terrified of the outcome of the search.

The shame I would face after other Students discovered that I stole the watch, the opinions my teachers would form about me, the thought of being named a ‘ thief’ till I leave the School, and my Parents’ reaction when they get to know me about my action.

All these thoughts flowed across my heart when suddenly it was my turn to be checked.

I felt your hand slip into my pocket, brought out the Watch, and dip a note into my pocket.

The note read “stop stealing.

God and man hate it.

Stealing will embarrass you before God and man”.

I was gripped with fear, expecting the worse to be announced.

I was surprised I didn’t hear anything, but Sir, you continued searching other students’ pockets till you got to the last person.

When the search was over, you asked us to open our eyes and sit on our chairs.

I was afraid to sit because I was thinking you will call me out soon after everyone was seated.

But to my amazement, you showed the watch to the class, gave it to the owner and you never mentioned the name of the one who stole the watch. You didn’t say a word to me, and you never mentioned the story to anyone.

Throughout my stay in the school, no Teacher or Student knew what happened.

This incident naturally taught me a great lesson and I resolved in my heart never to get myself involved in taking whatever is not mine.

I thought to myself, you saved my dignity.”

“Do you remember the story now Sir? You can’t simply forget this story Sir!!”

The teacher replied, ‘ I vividly remember the story that I found the Watch in a pocket but i did not know in whose pocket the stolen Watch was found that day because I searched your pockets while I also had my eyes closed.”

In life, we need wisdom for everything we do. As parents, teachers, Pastors, leaders, etc.

*We should be able to close our eyes to some things.

Not all misbehaviour require punishment. Some will need encouragement, some mentoring and some monitoring.*

*Be a teacher or leader who inspires, not one who shatters.*

LIGHTER MOOD: *What is politics?*



A Russian Jew was finally allowed to emigrate to Israel. At Moscow airport, customs found a Lenin statue in his baggage and asked, _”What is this?”

The man replied, _”What is this? Wrong question comrade. You should have asked: Who is he? This is Comrade Lenin. He laid the foundations of socialism and created the future and prosperity of the Russian people. I am taking it with me as a memory of our dear hero.”

The Russian customs officer let him go without further inspection. At Tel Aviv Airport, the Israeli customs officer also asked our friend,  _”What is this?”

He replied, _”What is this? Wrong question, Sir. You should be asking, ‘Who is this?’ This is Lenin, the bastard who caused me, a Jew, to leave Russia. I take this statue with me so I can curse him every day.”

The Israeli customs officer said, _”I apologize, Sir, you are cleared to go”

Settling into his new house, he put the statue on a table. To celebrate his immigration, he invited his friends and relatives to dinner.

One of his friends asked, _”Who is this?”

He replied, _”My dear friend, ‘Who is this’ is a wrong question. You should have asked, What is this? This is ten kilograms of solid gold that I managed to bring with me without paying any customs duty and tax.”_

Politics is when you can tell the same shit in different ways to fool a different audience, to allow you to look good in every way….
