Specks And Logs PART 1

For a while now, I have been learning to pay attention to patterns and the persuasions that produced them. I see more people seeking to solve the problems they are heavily afflicted by; they refused to see in themselves what they criticise in others. I’ll start with the tendency to judge all people and matters,…

Lessons Learnt

I am learning that nothing is eternal that is done outside of God. Recently, I have been terribly troubled by realities around me. I am deeply worried that nothing is more significant to most people than gains. In the face of what money can buy, very few people treasure things that money cannot buy. While…

DOMINION: A Case for a Different Philosophy of Education

Nigeria is on my mind . . . ; Africa too, by extension. In light of all the shortages in character-rich people, creative processes, and contemporary products, as well as power, fuel, gas, and the subsequent hardship and discomfort the people are subjected to, it seems we may have shortchanged ourselves in many ways. We…

Success and Seasons

Why do we feel the need to be successful? Successful at what exactly? What is the definition of success? When is ‘success’ a success? Are we sure it is not “an example we want to follow, whose opposite is a mistake to avoid?” Who defined the terms and the references? I have found out that…
