Seyi Law made this known as he took to his Instagram page to share some words of wisdom with his followers based on his experience. The comedian wrote:

Yesterday, my wife spotted my first grey hair and I began to ask myself what wisdom have I gained from life. What lessons have I learnt on my journey? One of the most profound lessons is, if those who live indoor with you don’t talk, those outdoor will have limited chance of harming you.

It took Judas to sell out Jesus. It took Joseph’s brother to sell him to slavery and it took Ahithophel to destroy David’s house, but in all of these with all their evil, there are fulfilment of purposes despite the hurts.

Those who I have trusted the most have been my greatest enemies, always talking without been asked or succumbing to lies about me, but as I leave them behind, God always opens a new chapter that celebrates His Grace and Glory in my life that they always wished they were a part of.

One of my ernest prayers is God take all the glory and leave none to any man and He has always done. If you are open enough, He will show you your enemies who you think are friends.

  3. I completely agreed with him. Those you trusted the most, will be the ones to sell you off to the enemies. In fact, i am inspired by those wisdom-laced word of his

  4. Trust is earn, if they don’t meet up to the standard of your principal, then let your secret be with ya wife.

  5. That is life for you na the rat wet dey inside house dey tell the one outside say food dey inside house.

  6. Those are facts of life. People are so bad these days even once own family most times becomes his greatest enemy.

  7. Yes it’s hurt to see those u trust hurt u so much,there a say that says onyeoma madu na egbu ya

  8. That is life for you. It’s the rat in the house who told the one outside that there’s fish in the kitchen

  9. Seyi law wrote out of experience. And I gained thus from it; if those who live indoor with you don’t talk, those outdoor will have limited chance of harming you.

  10. Human confidence is vanity.That is why only should we all put our confidence in.It is equally good to have enemies,enemies and hatred push Joseph to his place of prosperity and shining star

  11. True talk!”it’s the house rat that calls the outside rat to come and feast”.May God save us from ‘Frenenmies’

  12. I share your story and i thank Jah av learnt so much in life.weldone bro,no mind world people dem go everly talk

  13. Thats the truth,those you trust miht be the once to hurt you tomoro,but all thesame if people dont talk about you are nobody bear that in mind bro

  14. Your closest friends are always your worst enemies, we need to be extremely careful of the people we call friends.

  15. Yes oooo that is why you must not trust anybody at the same time be careful in everything and have faith in God

  16. Trust nobody. Your worst enemy could be your best friend vice versa. Just be careful with people. Don’t say much.

  17. You’re right. Our enemies are not people from outside,they live,eat, sleep and smile with us. People outside don’t know you except your close friends and family. That’s why we should ask God to forgive our enemies and always pray for them. Because your enemies are mostly your family and close friends.

  18. My brother we don’t trust anybody in this days because when you trust them they will be the one to kill you I better trust my enemy than trusting my best friend

  19. Before nko, in this life don’t ever or even mistakenly trust anyone because they will be the one to stab you at your back and in front of you to console you…..

  20. That is true. These days there are betrayals everyday including ones immediate family member. It is had to trust someone.

  21. How lucky for you to have realized th at some don’t even know until it’s too late. No man can share in God’s glory. Him alone deserve s the glory. Thank God for you. B strong for God is with you.

  22. Fact!!! The enemy within paves way for the enemy outside. In most cases when you hear the word friend…Abeg run….

  23. As humans that we’re, we don’t have to trust in our fellow humans but in God only. There’s no perfect and trust worthy being on earth.

  24. Seyi boss…..flex your money jooh….keep them as friends but nobody as friend….don’t get too close to them and don’t get too near….just be a neutral man

  25. Its painful when the people we do trust a lot disappoint or even hurt us..thank God you decided to share your experience with us with these we will learn not to trust anyone but God alone

  26. Yes Ooo!!….My brother, humans are wicked and so hard to trust, but who put their trust in God shall not be disappointed.

  27. That is life be, in life you are either going to see people as your adversaries or your assets. If their are your adversaries, you will be continually sparing with them by defending your potential. So be watchful.

  28. Trust no man bro. Yhu have to put your trust in God and believe in yourself
    No friends no foes no common blood

  29. You don’t have to trust anyone because as people said that someone you don’t know won’t harm you but the person who is very close to you, this is why no matter how close you are with someone don’t always trust Dem much because they will harm you

  30. Such is life as you learn everyday and watch ways.
    Continue to give God the glory and he will be there for you at all times.

  31. That’s the life we live in today,jealousy and hatred has taken over most peoples heart.BETRAYAL ALWAYS HAPPENS ESPECIALL IN THE INDUSTRY SEYI IS

  32. That’s why you should trust no man expect yourself in this life because you will never know who is your friends nor foe’s

  33. no one to b trust seyi law your closes friend can b your enemy all u ave to do is to ave trust in God

  34. I call dem u dey do me dey pity me friends. Dey can be very deadly
    It’s only people dat know you in and out sat can hurt you

  35. One of the most profound lessons is, if those who live indoor with you don’t talk, those outdoor will have limited chance of harming you. That is the simple truth i don’t blame those who are afraid of their relatives.

  36. Thats life for u bro,do gud or bad people must talk but mind ur business and look unto God for vengeance

  37. Exactly! That Is life For you, Trust No one. Who will kill you Is the person you know Even eat wuth..is Well with us

  38. It is a good thing that you thought of this. The friends we keep matters and not all of them should be fully trusted cos the outside world gets details from them

  39. yes you’re right your friends might turn to be your enemies while your enemies might turn to be your friends

  40. Word of wisdom, motivation and inspiration coming from the ace comedian, Seyi Law. Betrayal has been in existence from existence of man.

  41. my brother such is life forget them just relax because when God bless you they will run back to you but its too late then

  42. The so called friends who knows few things about you often turn out to be the real enemies.nobody is to be trusted

  43. He is right. You dont have to trust anyone in life because dont be surprised someday those you trust might turn around to stab you on your back

  44. If the in house death didn’t kill you the outside one’s will not have authority over you. The people I fear most is not my enemies but my friends.

  45. Exactly, the distance enemies cannot penetrate you except the closed enemies approved.. God will continue to be with you sir

  46. Let’s forget about the past because if not for the past most of us wouldn’t have gotten to where we are today. Let’s be thankful.

  47. Thanks be to God that today u v known ur enemies ,so be careful on how u work with them,never u trust anybody in life

  48. My dear if you’re just finding out today that means you found out late our biggest enemies has always been enemy widen, households enemies but am happy you humbled your self for God to take all the Glory they can only talk behind your back.

  49. “If those who live indoor with you don’t talk, those outdoor will have limited chance of harming you”. You are very correct here.

  50. You’re very right that’s why we should always keep to ourselves because we don’t know who our enemies are and it hurts to find out that the ones we love and trust are the ones killing us

  51. Yes o. The enemies within brings the ones outside. Those you trust always have a way of totally disappointing you the most

  52. That how he happen to everyone the pain full thing is that traitor or hurt come from those who we really truest it only God that can help us

  53. My dear they are household enemies. There is a saying that goes this way: becareful what you tell people cos your friend today meant be any enemy tomorrow. That is part of life.

  54. YES OOO. ONE HAS TO BE CAREFUL OF THOSE ONE EVEN CALLS FRIENDS. THEY MIGHT END UP BEING ONE’S GREATEST ENEMY….

  55. So true brother. The people inwards brings the outsiders into the home. If your own people inside refuse to talk, the outsiders can never know what to say or believe so the greatest enemies we have is the people we call our own and that’s why trust is very hard this days to be found in our society because of what our own brothers have done to us. We should only put our trust in God and not to man. Also we should try to keep our secrets with us always because whom you trust to share such secret may be your enemy you don’t know looking for a way to destroy you. A word is enough for the wise.

  56. I strongly agree with him, it’s only the enemy within that can bring you down. The Holy Book says “a man’s enemies are the members of his household”

  57. Yes. Your greatest friend should be God , no other because man has nothing to offer to accept , hypocrisy, hatred, lies, deceit, etc

  58. In life if u make it is when u will see all ur hidden enemies I swear is everywhere and as I can see he post new rid

  59. That’s just the truth, I totally agree with you Seyi but God has always been the victory, I celebrate you my guy, keep winning.

  60. That’s just the truth, I totally agree with you Seyi but God has always been the victory, I celebrate you my guy, keep winning.

  61. the greatest enemies we have is the people we call our own and that’s why trust is very hard this days to be found in our society because of what our own brothers have done to us

  62. thank God for wisdom and revelation from the Almighty God who have been protecting you and the life he has given you also

  63. Lesson learned from this wonderful write up…..I have experienced some and I’m braving up for the worst experience.

  64. THATS FACT OF LIFE I SUPPORT AND AGREE WITH YOU MY DEAR THOUGH ITS BAD BUT THATS THE LIFE WE LIVING IN…LIKE YOU MENTIONS STARTED LONG AGAIN EVEN IN THE BIBLE SO IT SHOULDN’T BE A SURPRISE TO YOU..THOSE CLOSE TO YOU OFTEN TIMES HURT YOU THE MORE THATS LIFE

  65. Of course those you trusted often tends to be the worse enemies because of the fact that they’ve betrayed you

  66. That is truth and it usually be, that is the world for you, those you love and trust may be the people killing you, something bad can not happen to you without your closet person been behind it.

  67. This world have turn no one should trust nowadays even weither ur mother or father or friend honesty.

  68. Household enemies are the most dangerous enemy one can have because they know all about your in and out.

  69. There’s a saying that your best friend will turn out to be your worse enemy. But not in all cases. But in whatever case we should try not to be harsh on them

  70. True words of wisdom, a man must keep moving on to succeed inspite of any odd he encounters in his success journey in life, keep it up man

  71. That is life for you trust no one even your closest friends the topic secret you can keep is keeping it to yourself

  72. In reality without the enemies inside the ones outside will definitely have no cue about you but God is marvelous for he let them always fail at end
