You Don't Have To Be Old To Own A House

There is no greater story I have encountered today like the story of this young man called Nicholas Luwuge from Kalangala. The daily monitor of today has published a story of how he has built a two-roomed house see this link for more http://www.monitor.co.ug/Magazines/HomesandProperty/13-year-old-constructs-house-from-savings/689858-3437056-item-00-wl8vhe/index.html. If there is any story of great inspiration today, it is from this young man. There is so much we can learn. 

We often look for INSPIRATION from very far, yet we have some of it just around us, The story of this young man should challenge all of us, A 13 Year OLD building a 2 roomed house, it might not be to the standard many of us want but the mere fact he did it through Hard Work, Desire to Change his mother situation and Saving money to make sure that he meets his goal of a house, this should be great inspiration for one to take in and sit back and think about all the resources they have and what it can do, you could be having more and you don't know what to do with it, let this young man's story push you to BELIEVE. To add on, this man pays his own school fees and feeds his family.

Recently while listening to Richard Senkwale, he made a very strong statement and he said that, “A good Saver must save 25% and above”. He also mentioned and said that a PLAN compels us to work harder and that if we aren’t disciplined, there is no way we can save. I want to believe that this young man embodied these principles and applied them and put them to work.

The things that seem so hard in life were done by men and women who sat back and told themselves that I will do this and that. I will achieve my dream no matter what. Often such people turn a deaf ear to impossibilities and believe without a doubt that it is possible to rise above the challenge. There is nothing that can’t be done, you just have to put your mind to it and keep trying without giving up.

Scripture reference:
Luke 14:28 "Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won't you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?
Proverbs 21:5 Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.
Proverbs 10:5 
Poor is he who works with a negligent hand, But the hand of the diligent makes rich
