Of Ibadan Taxis
My letter to you today is about something I recently observed. I believe you will agree with me that there are many things we can learn by observing. Observation brings many things our way. I observed something and I would like to share it with you today.
The taxis in Ibadan are gradually wearing a new color. To someone that is new in Ibadan, the color would be something new, but to someone that has been in Ibadan for a long while it is not a new color.
Ibadan taxis use to be yellow and brown, then it was changed to white with two green stripes. Now, they are back to the yellow and brown color. It think that color actually fits Ibadan, but the change brought some thoughts to my heart.
Do you know that a lot of our friends have changed back to what they used to be just like Ibadan taxis? It’s not a good news. People are now reducing the standard of the scriptures. There is a scripture I love so much in the book of Hebrews.
Hebrews 10:39 But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.
I often confess this scripture to myself. I really hope that you are still as fervent as you use to be. If not, you need to return to your first love. Don’t be like the Ibadan taxis that changed back to what they use to me.
Can you remember that song by Hezekiah Walker- Moving Forward?
