Don’t shut down your mind in the name of religion. “God wants us to use our intelligence; to seek to understand as well as we can.” He wants us to ask questions; to examine the Scriptures~ to diligently study it~like the Bereans. (more…)
There’s need for us to exercise caution before passing judgement on others. What people need is love, not harsh judgement. The truth is, we can never go wrong when we choose the way of love and compassion. “Kind mercy wins over harsh judgement every time.” (James 2:13 MSG) (more…)
God is not man. He’s not moved by popular applause and opinion. He judges everything that we do, for him and humanity, according to its hidden intent, whether it’s good (done out of love) or evil (not done sincerely or out of selfish ambition). (more…)
Keep a sharp eye out for weeds of bitter discontent, the Scripture says. One of the ways to uproot the seeds of bitterness germinating in you, is praying for those who despitefully use you. I know doing this is hard but it’s better than going down the lane of bitterness, allowing others to bring out […]
“The Lord said, ‘If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, THEN NOTHING THEY PLAN TO DO WILL BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THEM.’” ~Genesis 21:6 (NIV) “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in me through their words; that they may be one, […]
“Many Samaritans from that city believed in him (Jesus) because of the woman’s testimony…..” John 4:39 —— What are you known for? What are the people you’re meant to serve saying about you? What is your reputation out there? (more…)
1. God’s desire is for His Kingdom to be expressed through your life. “A kingdom,” according to Myles Munroe, “is the sovereign rulership and governing influence of a king over his territory, impacting it with his will, his intent, his purpose, manifesting a culture and society reflecting the King’s nature, values, and morals. A kingdom […]
People may try to shame you, mock you, criticise you……. But don’t let their actions turn you into another play-actor, pretending to be something you’re not. (more…)
You’re not here to be an onlooker — you’re here to be useful; to play your unique role in making the world a better place to live in and inspiring others to do the same. You’re important. You’re crucial to the survival of planet earth. The world needs you and your unique contribution. (more…)
Motives means a lot to God; He greatly cares about why we do the things we do, for him and humanity — whether they’re done in love or out of selfish ambition. Doing the right thing out of envy and rivalry is foolishness and futile, a waste of precious time and energy. An ambition that […]
It’s difficult to be unique, to choose not to do what everyone else is doing. It’s difficult to take a principled stand in the face of adversity. It’s difficult to be vulnerable and trusting. It’s difficult to stay calm in a crisis, when things aren’t going the way you want it. It’s difficult to do […]
Where are the matured sons and daughters of The Living God, those who are fully equipped to realise God’s purposes on earth? These are men and women who’ll administer God’s plan on earth, his heaven-on-earth agenda. They’ll champion the cause for change, teach people to (more…)
Don’t live a fearful life. Fear is crippling. It’ll make you an invisible nonentity if you allow it to rule your life. Fear will stop you from living your best life; from dominating your world and making a ding in the universe. (more…)
Panic is nothing but a waste of energy. That’s why I tell people not to panic; not to allow that “sudden overpowering fear” take over their lives, when they face difficult or challenging circumstances in any area of their lives. (more…)
I believe in using business to positively impact the lives of others. That’s why I love Google, Toms, Ashoka, Kiva and many more. They’re profitable and socially relevant businesses. They’re purpose-driven businesses making our world a better place. (more…)
1. Be selective. (more…)
There’ll always be people who complain around you. But you must refuse to join their tribe if you really want to be a change-maker. Complainers don’t change the world. (more…)
