IFÁ SAYS: THE GRACE OF ORÍ AWAITS THOSE WHO ARE PUNCTUAL~Ogbè Iwori
To be Punctual means: To do something at the agreed or proper time” ~Oxford Dictionary
One of the reasons why some are not enjoying the goodness of ORÍ is because they are not willing to use their energies wisely. The grace of ORÍ is sufficient but those who are punctual will benefit from it.
IFÁ says in order to enjoy the goodness of ORÍ, we must cultivate the habit of ‘being punctual’ in whatever thing that we know is worthwhile. If your ORÍ says, “Do this now!” please do it! Do not delay, because time waits for no one.
In Ogbe Iwori(the 18th chapter of IFÁ), IFÁ told a story of how a woman called “Tètèdé” enjoyed the grace of ORÍ because of her punctuality.
Tètèdé was praying for material Wealth so she consulted ifá about it. Ifá told her to offer Ẹbọ, and to be punctual in the spiritual meetings that she used to attend.
Meanwhile, on every meeting day, the irunmole used to bring gifts for the attendees but because they were latecomers, they always miss these blessings.
So whenever the priests and Priestesses call for spiritual meeting, Tètèdé would get there first and on time. She would clean up everywhere and get the place ready before her colleagues would arrive.
Èṣù was taking notes of everything.
But because she had already offered Ẹbọ to Èṣù, Èṣù opened her inner eyes and she was able to see the doings of the irunmole, so she became more serious. Whenever the irunmole bring in their gifts, they would hand over them to Tètèdé because she was punctual. So gradually, Tètèdé started to enjoy the grace of ORÍ and that was how she acquired wealth for herself.
When you are punctual you will grow fast spiritually because Punctuality is one of the attitudes that will help you stay in alignment with ORÍ.
Whether we like it or not, ORÍ is taking care of everybody but it is our responsibility to be punctual to the things of ORÍ, so that we can enjoy Grace in abundance.
