The People You Cannot Fix

I have someone in my life who is capable of keeping for years everything you did to her. Growing up, myself and other members of our family usually joked about how she could recall lots of things. Unfortunately, her remembrance of our offences to her outweighed the good things we did for her. She isContinue reading “The People You Cannot Fix”

What They See When They See You

Respect is one of these. A follower of Christ must teach him/herself the rudiments of respect. It comes with knowing who you are in Christ and living accordingly to ensure anyone who has encounters with you will see the power of the resurrection in you. Being a believer in the redeemed works of our LordContinue reading “What They See When They See You”

My pastor, my saviour

Learn to pray for yourself, and by yourself. The pastors to whom you are running during your crises, are human beings just like you. That means they have personal problems, too. The bottom line is that these are not your saviour. Often, private prayers help you draw closer to Jehovah than what you refer toContinue reading “My pastor, my saviour”

Can You Stop Trying?

Are you going to spend the rest of your life trying to change people? Learn to read the Bible in context! Samuel was once a boy who could not convince Eli to address the latter’s son. What Samuel may not know is that Eli tried for so long until he stopped attempting. Hophni and PhinehasContinue reading “Can You Stop Trying?”

In God’s Time

Jehovah is neither slow nor forgetful as many thinks. His time is unpredictable, consequently making people think that the Lord is no longer responding to prayers. When He steps in, everything changed. Those who think they can continue to damage others often discovered their powers are useless because God makes a mockery of them. Likewise,Continue reading “In God’s Time”

Has anything changed?

What is it like being in someone else’s shoes? I guess the time has now come for many to see how privileged they are and how others around them are not. The pandemic may be over for some. However, this is the moment that majority of people are going to bear the brunt. Can weContinue reading “Has anything changed?”

Those Who Hurts Others

When people hurt others, they are not aware that there is always a paybac day. The story of Joseph is a perfect example. Despite living in wealth, his brothers were afraid of him. There is no doubt they did keep their guard even when he assured them, as mentioned in the above verse. Is thereContinue reading “Those Who Hurts Others”

Christians Who Know Too Much

The government of all respective nations seems to have enough information about the ongoing health crisis than we do. This is why they imposed lockdowns and the continuing imposition on everyone to wear masks and maintain social distancing. But it bothers me when I see people failing to obey these instructions. At the stores, onContinue reading “Christians Who Know Too Much”

How Not to be a Parent

In Human Nature and the Social Order (1902:80), Charles Horton Cooley asserts, “It is not at all uncommon to wrong one person out of affection for another.” Being a parent is one thing, and being a good parent is another. Rebekah was both. Her actions cause total disasters in the lives of her children. LovingContinue reading “How Not to be a Parent”

Who is my neighbour?

We had the sun today. At least, for the past few days, the weather has been generous to the extent that the talk of switching off the heaters seems to be on everybody’s lips. With the sunshine comes out the decisive question about how to continue using the masks. Anyone wearing an N95 or theContinue reading “Who is my neighbour?”

Why Christ is All You Need

Many times I heard some people say, “if people were like God, this world would have been a mess.” They are not far from the truth. Already, the world is unhealthy, and for humans to take the place of the Almighty would be a further disaster. The current pandemic has shown the heart of manContinue reading “Why Christ is All You Need”
