No one can harm you without having access to you. Giving people access to your life, can either help to promote it or to destroy it.

If not for the access Judas had to Jesus, he wouldn’t have easily betrayed him. If not for the access Delilah had to Samson, she wouldn’t have known the source of his power and he would not have died prematurely. If not for access Mary and Martha had to Jesus, their brother Lazarus wouldn’t have been raised from the dead. Etc

Access is a priceless gift. Do not give it to anyone that has nothing meaningful to offer to your life. Do not give everyone access to your life. The people you give access to must show quality and dependability.

If Jesus could not please the world, you too cannot. Love your neighbor as you love yourself. It doesn’t say love yourself as you love your neighbor.

Many people are in great pains-physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally, just because of the kind of people they give access to their lives.

In our institutions of higher learning, in our working places, even in church, many people are dying in vision and in focus, just because of the people they give access to their lives.

In Biology, we have the knowledge of different associations-saprophytic, parasitic, symbiotic etc relationships.

*Symbiotic or mutualism* is singled out as the best form of association, in that the two parties involved gain from the relationship and this helps to promote the cause of each.

Review the list of all who have access to you. Consider the value you deliver to them and also the one they deliver to you. The result of this evaluation should form the basis of your access closures to some of them.

You see, while mediocrities take their entire life to get prepared, possibilities thinkers understand that life is too short and every thing should be done with a sense of urgency.

If you’re wise, be selective in giving people access to your life. That you’re a Christian should not make you to lose your sense of reasoning. Remember, *be wise as the serpent and gentle as the dove*.

Think about this.

*Watchwords:do not give up, as long as you have something to give*
