Extraordinary Things, Ordinary Places
By Rogers Wanambwa
It is common knowledge that Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Microsoft which are all trillion-dollar companies started in small rooms and garages.
This fact seems inconsequential now because they are big companies. I mean, so what if they begun in such conditions?
But, hold up!
Lest we overlook this important lesson that even in the most ordinary of places, extraordinary things can be born.
You see, even Jesus was born in a manger and grew in Nazareth. These two were never associated with great things. But He came from these humble places to prove a point that it doesn’t matter where you are from.
You can still change the world. Or perhaps you just want to change your village or family. Start on that too.😉
Do you always wonder where these celebrities cane from? Doesn’t it seem like they cropped out of nowhere and now they are always in our faces?
I believe that it is because where you come from does not limit how far you will go. Only your faith will do that.
This is the theme of this series. Occupy. Do not fear starting things because “they will fail.” Fest not starting and regretting in your last days.
What if is not something to go out of this world with. Even still, many go in this fashion. Hope it won’t be you.
Start that business, do that course, approach that lady/guy, start that farm, that NGO, preach that gospel, write that book.
Most importantly, don’t wait to have enough to start, ordinary places have birth extraordinary things, humble beginnings have resulted in legacies.
In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.
So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger because there was no room for them in the inn.
“Can any good thing come from Nazareth?”
