For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” – Genesis 18:19 (NKJV)
Children are the future of any society and the character of the children is the leading indicator of the future of the nation. It takes godly parents to raise godly children but from my observations, it would seem to appear that some parents have abdicated this responsibility to either the church or the school system. The reality however is that influence begins at home. It is in the home that children learn right from wrong, a sense of justice, pick up habits, mannerisms, learn to read and write, learn to talk etc.
But there is a spirit in man,
And the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding.
Job 32:8 New King James Version (NKJV)
Ideas Rule The World
Some of the things that you may have gotten used to and taken for granted in the 21st century were nonexistent in the last fifty years. Let me put it this way: Ideas rule the world! One idea conceived, believed and acted upon has the capacity to change the world and your world as you know it.Just take a moment and consider the following: the automobile, the aeroplane, the vending machine, the microwave, the personal computer, the internet, the mobile phone, the laptop, Ipad, google, facebook, twitter, instagram, pinterest, linkedin, periscope etc. (more…)
“In the first year of his reign I Daniel understood by books the number of the years, whereof the word of the Lord came to Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.”- Daniel 9:2 KJV
Why You Should Care
There is a sad but true saying that “if you want to hide something from certain kinds of persons, put it in a book” This is based on the notion that generally these people don’t like reading as a lifestyle to learn, unlearn or relearn. (more…)
Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.
Proverbs 4:23New King James Version (NKJV)
I first became aware that in a sense there were three groups of people many years ago when I was reading one of Dr Myles Munroe’s books, Understanding Your Potential. I stumbled upon a page, the forward to the book to be precise where Dr Jerry Horner said that “people generally fall into one of three groups: the few who make things happen, the many who watch things happen and the overwhelming majority who have no notion of what happens.” (more…)
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Jeremiah 1:5 NKJV
What Is Destiny?
I have always wondered about destiny probably because of my lack of clarity as I sought to find out what it really meant and what destiny was all about. I turned to the Cambridge Dictionary where it was defined as “the things that will happen in the future”.On the other hand the same dictionary also defined destiny as “the force that some people think controls what happens in the future and is outside of human control” Unsure of what position I should take, I turned to the Bible and stumbled upon what God said to Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (more…)
