Special: RIP Myles Munroe

Myles and two his children
      Dr. Munroe was a pastor, teacher, administrator, author, a father, a husband and motivational speaker. The late Myles Munroe had a son Chairo (Myles Jr.) and daughter Charisa and said that his family is his greatest responsibility and his marriage his most sacred trust. He travelled throughout the world as a speaker addressing governments leaders, businesses, schools/universities and church congregations. He personally addressed over 500,000 people each year on personal and professional development, and he received hundreds of invitations every year to speak worldwide.  Dr. Munroe placed an emphasis on the Kingdom of God and believed that the whole Bible, along with the message of Jesus, revolves around the kingdom and not a religion. He said, "My vision, is wrapped up in one statement: I exist to transform followers into leaders. My philosophy is, trapped in every follower is a leader. My belief is, if that person is placed in the right environment, the leader will manifest himself or herself."

His famous quotes:
“Purpose is when you know and understand what you were born to accomplish. Vision is when you see it in your mind and begin to imagine it” “The bible does not say that a man’s education makes room for him, but that his gifts does. Education is not the key to success, it doesn,t guarantee anything; it is your gift that is the key to success”
“Anyone who develops his gifts and talents will become a commodity”
“You are meant to be going somewhere, to be headed to a destination. The poorest person in the world is a person without a dream”
You are designed by God not to blend in, but to stand out”
“If you have hope for the future you have true riches; no matter how much you have in your account”
“Hard work and diligence are essential to success, but they require an internal motivation. That internal motivation is Vision”
“Vision is a conception that is inspired by God in the hearts of Human”
“God loves dreamers”
You need to treat your finances as a resource God has provided to fulfil your vision, not a tool to fill your life with luxuries”
You are not saved for the sole purpose of going to heaven; you are saved to finish your assignment on earth”
