And a great multitude followed him, because they saw his miracles which he did on them that were diseased. John 6/2
The word multitude seems to me as “multi- attitude” when broken into two. (Copy and tweet). They are many with different ideas and mindset. They don’t have a united mind to be channelled into something worthwhile. They only followed Jesus because of the miracles which they saw him perform and not for the word to transform their lives. They have the tendency to be only receivers but not contributors. They have their mouths well opened to receive and never give back to others what they received. They will keep you busy preaching, teaching and even giving out everything you have. They have a motto that reads - “no contribution but we are here to enjoy”. (Copy and tweet).
They come in so many forms and they do not seek anything but the best you have to offer without any contribution from them. If in church, they could represent the people in the parable of the sower in a sense. They will cause you to preach for the word to fall on rocky hearts, wayside hearts, and thorny hearts. They are very quick to fill churches, raise you up and with the same quickness raze you down in search of a new anointing or kid on the block. (Copy and tweet)
There is a tendency for you to try and prove a point when you come across the multitude type. (Copy and tweet). Watch out! For they might let you to do things God hasn’t told you to do. They will put you under enormous pressure and sometimes even sin against God.
Though sometimes there might be an iota of skill, talent and ability within them, you do not need to spend so much of your time with them. If you are not careful you will focus all your energy and time trying to help people who do not need it. (Copy and tweet). We meet these people every day in our lives but your focus should not be on what they do.
Of cause some will help you achieve your vision but the ratio of your helpers compared to your detractors will not be in your favour. (Copy and tweet).
Have you ever encountered a person with a multitude mentality? Let me know your thoughts.
