5TypesOfPeopleWeRelateTo - (2)The Andrew type

…One of his disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, saith unto him, there is a lad here, which had five barley loaves and two small fishes but what are they among so many. John 6:8

The Andrew sorts of people are always recommending others with the resources but not themselves. (Copy and tweet). They position themselves in way in which to attract and locate the skills, talents and the abilities of others to help the vision. Yet my question to such is – what happened to theirs? I have seen people with fantastic ideas who fail to make use of it only for others to pick their ideas up, add a little of theirs and become great with it. 

There are a lot of well skilled people who nurture others with their great ideas. The nurtured ones are able to implement the borrowed ideas to become great whiles the originators remain in their poor state of life. I have no problem with nurturing others but at least do something with what you’ve been given. In this life, no one honours or applauds ideas until the virtue is turned into a desired product. (Copy and tweet). You join the losers club if you sit and wait for the results of your vision or idea to be handed down to you. 

A poor wise man in the bible had profound wisdom and through it saved his nation but the fact remained that he was poor. No one wants to be associated with poverty. (Copy and tweet). Soon every one forgot about him because he was poor. You can have the world’s greatest vision but if it is not implemented you will not be recognised.
One negative of being the Andrew type is that you will wait for others to become icons of peoples’ admiration and claim to be part of their success. (Copy and tweet). Sometimes even those you helped or nurtured will refuse to give you credit or recognize you! Its the reality of life.
For me, one of the people who could have become great in the work of God other than Paul was Ananias. Ananias represents a sort of Andrew type person. He had the anointing but was not prepared to use it. God made him release everything into Paul by the laying on of hands.(Copy and tweet).  Such people are never implementers nor can they lead. They are very comfortable when others receive the praise for their work done. I suppose you could use their ideas. It’s called smart work Lol!

Do you think if the Andrew type of people is balanced, he/she will profit from their gifts? Let me know your thoughts.
