What did Abraham see?

All that you “see” will be given you. What did Abraham see? This is what I’d like to know. Did he see lots of cattle, goats and sheep? Did he see gold and silver, servants and camels?

For we are told this is what he had, in abundance for that matter.

Some say he was a multimillionaire. This is my story for today. I don’t know why, but dreamers fascinate me. Actually, I love them. Why do I love them? I love them because I believe dreams come true. And anyone associated with dreams; I will look at her life story. I will like to know more about her. And to me Abraham is a life story.

Why? He left his old country. He left it. It is said if you want to be successful leave your old country. This is what I like about wisdom.

It challenges you. It makes you to think. In this instance, what is old country? I wish I were in a classroom standing in front of you. I wish I could see the expression on your face. What would you come out with? Think about it. Well I’m not in a classroom. And I’m obliged to tell you the answer.

It is your old mindset. You can’t be successful thinking the way you think. You have to think differently. This is what is says. Most people want to be successful but they cling to old ideas. They don’t see things. They don’t see big things. Because they do see things. Everyone sees things. But it depends how big they are.

Most are small. Most of us are small dreamers. This is what I want.

And we mention them. And when we get them, we are satisfied. Small dreamers! I won’t mention what we want. I will ruffle feathers.

But think you. What do you see? Look, I know where we come from. We come from an era where we were not allowed to think. You are blacks.

Don’t think big things. Don’t have dreams. But is the situation still like that? Some people will have us think it is. We still have a rope around our legs. We can’t leave the old country. And we can’t see things. Why people? Why? Why? Why? This is what I’d like to know. Remove that rope around your leg. You are free now. Don’t be afraid to abandon those lousy thoughts that you had and that held you back all this time. Try new things. That’s right. You heard me right. Try new things. See things. See things and say, “Why not. I love this dream. I can achieve it!” People, it is time we abandoned the old country. It is time we saw things. What say you? Stay positive
