For God, the goal is not uniformity in competition but unity through complementarity. Himself respecting this principle, desires that we apply it because He is God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. And in this trinity, each plays its role. This proves that there is perfect unity in complementarity, and not in competition. Thus, we are also invited to apply this same principle together as members of the body of Christ.

Let this become our way of life since we are all members of the body of Jesus Christ. Therefore, each of us is invited to respectively play our role in this Body. Not often understanding their essence, many people seek what could satisfy their worldly passion instead of fulfilling God’s plans. Genesis 6:14 informs that God asked Noah to build the ark, and he did. It practically took him several years of construction. Many surely mocked him.

How can you build such a thing? Why don’t you go to the field like others? Why don’t you engage in this or that activity like others? Or he might say to himself, why should I bother so much in this adventure? No one has ever done it before. Shouldn’t I also do as this or that other person?

Perhaps I have also been called in these different areas. Noah understood that he was unique, called to fulfill his mission not following the instructions of men but those of God. He did not refer to this visible, superficial world with all it contains in terms of lust to build the ark; he referred to God, the Perfect designer and implementer of projects who has no equal.

The Bible says in Hebrews 11:7 that Noah was warned of things not yet seen. Listen! Just because something has never manifested does not mean it does not exist. Discover your mission and make it manifest because it already exists. You cannot accomplish said mission by comparing yourself to others, but by listening to God as Noah did. For we walk not by sight but by faith. Every man is a unique being with a unique purpose. I titled this book “Echo Mentality” because, realizing that above all things, man is spirit.

But it is the spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty, that gives them understanding.” Job 32:8

This book aims to influence the life of the human being not from external facts to the inside but from internal facts to the outside, that is to say, that man knows that he is not the result of what he sees but of what he thinks because the Bible says in Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

That is why this book touches much more on the spiritual sphere than the physical. Thus, before developing the different circumstantial realities of life in a proverbial style, it would be wise to first define the two basic keywords constituting the major reason for this book: “Echo” and “Mentality”.

Before understanding the mentality of the echo, let us distinctly understand the meaning of these two words. Borrowed from Latin, echo, itself êkhô, means “sound, echoed noise.” The echo is what is repeated by someone. It occurs when one shouts, a voice, and one hears identically with a slight delay. Spiritually speaking, as it is the axis that concerns us most here, it is the instant of listening that we take to receive what we hear internally in order to reproduce it externally.

The time it takes to visibly bring the signs or directives received invisibly…

This text is an excerpt from the book “ECHO MENTALITY” written by Kitoko Yuwayako Denis.
