The lead writer and director of Roverman Production, James Ebo Whyte, professionally known as Uncle Ebo Whyte has shared his spirit-filled ten commandments which will help him to journey through the year. According to the playwright, these thoughts are personal to him and was moved to share them with his fans and the general public at large.
“Still in the spirit of the New Year allow me to share with you my ‘guiding principles’ for 2022, I call them my ‘Ten Commandments. Guidelines help me know where I am going and of course where not to go. If you find them useful, you can also adopt them or better still write your own Ten Commandments.”
He stated that “These are my personal Ten Commandments for 2022. What are you binding yourself to this year? What direction are you going to compel yourself to go this year? Remember that you will have a more meaningful life if right from the beginning, you know the direction you want your life to go this year. And with that, I wish you a very blessed and happy New Year.”
The first two points of these commandments deal with Uncle Ebo’s personal relationship with God. He made his faith know that his body is the temple of God and that he can’t fully serve his God when he is not in good shape.
He professed his faith out by saying that his fear belongs to God and he will always walk in his assigned destiny. “I will practice the fear of God and align myself with His purposes…”
Here is the outline of Uncle Ebo’s Ten Commandments.
1. 2022 will be all about God – I will seek to know God better & to honor Him in small and big ways. I will practice the fear of God and align myself with His purposes so I can be an instrument in His hands for noble purposes.
2. I will take better care of myself. If I am not healthy, I cannot honor God. And if my body is indeed the temple of God then taking good care of it is my godly duty and act of worship.
3. I will watch my thoughts. “Thoughts are things”, our thoughts become our reality. So I am going to think positive and keeping negative thoughts out is going to be a battle I’ll fight with Philippians 4:8.
4. Give. I am renewing that commitment to remain a giving person this year. To give my time, share my experiences and insights.
5. Work as if everything depends on work and pray as if everything depends on prayer. This has become almost like a mantra with me.
6. Celebrate people, their success, and their breakthroughs. I am going to find even more ways of celebrating people because that tells my subconscious that success is a good thing and then all that’s within me will propel me too towards success.
7. Practice gratitude. In every situation, no matter how unfortunate, I can choose to be positive about it or negative. Negativity will weaken my resolve and the situation will take a greater toll. Positivity will give me the needed inner resources and make me stronger and better. Plus Gratitude attracts more goodness into our lives.
8. Live every day fully. In 2018 when I was hit with a ‘death threat’ I prayed and I heard the spirit of God say, “Don’t be afraid of dying; be afraid of not living.” In that moment I realized that the worst thing that could happen to a human being was not death, it is failing to make the most of every day; failing to live. So I am learning to live fully every day.
9. Claim my mountain. 85-year-old Caleb, went to Joshua to say, “Give me this mountain.” A territory promised him when he was 40 and 45 years later, he was willing and prepared to take on the challenge of taking that territory. I am wired to chase new dreams and set new and bigger goals.
10. Make a difference in one person’s life every day. The motto of my company, Roverman Productions, is, “Be the difference.” This year, I am going to apply that in a very simple way. I am going to make a difference in one person’s life every day. Just one person. Every day. That means that by 31st December 2022, I would have made a difference in the lives of 365 people. I believe that is a good target to shoot for.
