Theme: Define it
Text: Mark 11:12-25
Then he said to the tree, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard him say it… In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!”
Let me use this booster to answer a friend’s question which may be yours too. She asked, how long does it take for me to see what I have defined? I hope you have asked yourself that same question too? Then permit to take a little detour and I will get back to our discussion.
We have come to meet the definition of some science terminologies and words which predates our birth. They were accepted because it was owned either by the author of the research paper in the publication or in a dictionary. As such, there is a consistency in regaining the true meaning of the word. Your situation may not change with immediate effect when you start defining them. However, the more you are consistent in your definition, the more you have that sense of ownership. Jesus spoke to the tree and it did not die instantly. The disciple noticed it was dead the next day as they passed by. On another occasion, he spoke to the wind and it calmed down instantly. Even though you don’t see what you are confessing, be consistent; for it will surely yield results.
What you call forth is what you own. Persistency in your definition seals the ownership to what you have called. You don’t give a name to your child this minute and change it the next and expect the world to call your child by the former. Consistency counts.
