MONITORING.Monitoring (according to word-web dictionary): the act of observing something and sometimes keeping a record of it.
I will like to start by saying: ‘Every information is a product of observation’ and that means when we fail to observe we fail to be informed - and definitely we become deformed.- Monitoring!
A deal according to the picture I attached last week as that thing you find yourself doing with zeal creating a vision of a potential only you can feel.
What is that thing that takes up your heart? What is that thing that gives you a vision of a brighter tomorrow? That’s the deal you need a meal for. The first meal we want to discuss today is Monitoring.
There is a way monitoring works and I’ll take you through that it in some minutes.
I told you earlier: ‘Every Information is a product of Observation (Monitoring) but it takes:
Information + Observation (Monitoring) = Product.
I am trying to calculate this out: You need to monitor i.e. get all information around you to get information for yourself.
What can I do? Where can I do it? When can I do it? Why do I want to do it? How do I do it best? How does it positively impact others and myself?
Questions like this birth series of Information which are very important. No wonder the scriptures said; ‘My people perish for lack of knowledge(Hosea 4:6a)
[Knowledge here is synonymous to Information]
Now when the information is gotten, you need monitoring to yield results/product.
Let’s gist this scripture below to buttress my point.
44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
If you follow closely you’ll discover the scripture is presenting a 2-sided story here, these 2 men through monitoring discovered some invaluable treasures which we earlier described as Information. It is obvious they were looking for some great things......... Here is what I mean.... You do not just set out to monitor, you must be out looking for something. How great is it?
I hereby define Monitoring define as the act of ... Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: (Mathew 7:7).
Monitoring is the act of finding what you seek.
In the scriptures above, the first man and the second both observed the presence of a treasure(hidden) and a goodly pearl through monitoring respectively!
What you need won’t just fall in your hands like some young adults dream you need to observe, monitor and seek them!
Armed robbers will never forget a bag of money for you to stumble upon neither will a mad man/woman come give you directional, it’s absurd!
God doesn’t work in these ways.
Even our God that ‘calleth those things which be not as though they were’ (Romans 4:17) had to work out creation for 6 days and rest a day (Genesis 2:2)
These men through monitoring both saw these invaluable items.... the first man had to discover it in its hidden place while the other man discovered it through its worth. Two things to watch out for!
Monitoring made them know they were both invaluable assets. Definitely they must have stumbled upon some series of treasures and pearls for them to know the value of what they saw.
They sold all they both had to buy what they needed to get what they discovered.
Monitoring is sacrificing all for a deal and taking actions when needed. The actions we will continue in our next edition.
