DAY FOUR: A Time to Walk Away

Christ was just given a platform by John the Baptist to be revealed to the world; it all culminated at His baptism, where the Spirit of the LORD was seen descending upon Him. John had spent all His life serving the purpose of the kingdom of God, preparing the way for the Christ [Matthew 3:1-17]….

DAY THREE:Tools and the Trade

God has given everyone a gift. Each one is meant to profit with that gift. The manifestation of these gifts comes in diverse ways; some shines so brightly in public, others glow quietly in obscurity. Still, each gift is to be explored and exercised for good, no matter what the situation presents. But gifts are…

When People Listen . . .

It is often said that most people listens to respond, not to understand what is being said; even speakers speak to be heard, not to seek clarity from engaging the audience, most of the times. Had each person seen the opportunity to listen and speak as one to attain a deeper depth of understanding, we…

Of Growth and Boundaries

There is something amazing about PHYSICAL growth: as beautiful and necessary as it may be, beyond a set limit, it would be a disaster – actually a malignancy! Have you ever imagined what we would look like if we don’t stop growing physically after a particular stage in life? Many of us would be giants…

Where is (YOUR) Fortune?

Fortunes, they say, favours the brave . . . nothing significant comes from easy places. If beauty would ever come out from chaos, and problems would become blessings in disguise, resources must be spent on them, wherever they are. There is a lot of value and great wealth in mundane and regular experiences. So, wherever…

What is [YOUR] Value?

Certainly, no one is bereft of value; it is either it is unknown or it is known and underutilized. If there are resources (time, money and people [relationships]) and they are not spent on increasing or improving worth and essence [skills], value would inevitably be lost. It is a beautiful thing to buy pleasure and…

Do You Work?

It is the beginning of a new week,Dawn to dusk, a cycle of rising to work and retiring to bed, to bring aspirations to realization. Before you begin this week, the grind of making and promoting value, ponder a while on what you do as work . . . Is it the exercise of your…

The gift of life has many dimensions to it. Those who understand these dimensions are able to make the best of it. It comes with instructions on how it is to be used, outside of which it would be abused. This is its INSTRUCTION MANUAL Surely it is to be numbered, but it’s numbers is…

Beyond the Door

For every door that is knocked, there has to be a response. If there is none, it means there is no one in that address. If and when the door opens, the interaction could go in many ways. But before we explore that, do not forget that the visitor knows what the subject of the…

Faith for Works

I live in a row of flats that necessitate some sort of shared facilities; wherein, something as simple as a fault in the water pumping system requires a meeting of many tenants to resolve. It is amazing how many back and forth is necessary before simple things get resolved. Among us are some, who don’t…
