Last week Sunday was Mothers’ Day and it was a day when individuals honored their mothers by showering them with love and affection. Instinctively, women are nurturers.

Yesterday, I had a very strong craving for curried chicken, and not just ‘ordinary’ curried chicken – the kind that needed to come from M10 or Moby Dick [restaurant]. As the day wore on, my craving grew, and only intensified after a friend laughed at my plight and advised that he was having my desired dish for lunch, then proceeded to descri.

I recently attended the funeral of my best friend from high school. I was sure to take a handkerchief, as I knew the impact eulogies had had on me in the past.

The subject of prayer has been a hot topic among the brethren at my congregation in recent times – whether it works or not, who God hears, if He hears all but only answers to those who are in Him and so on. As I reflect on prayer, I’m focused on what it means to truly cast all my cares on God. Very often, I pray and with my mouth, I will say that I am ‘lea.

‘Please pray for me. I’m going through a difficult situation.’ In recent times, I’ve been saying this a lot to my friends. I’ve been falling asleep in despair and waking up in tears. The situation is the last thing I think about at night and it greets me every morning when I awake. This is one of those challenges which seems insu.

Often times people comment, “God did not define which words are bad!” or “Where did curse words come from?” These comments are usually made to explain why there is a free licence to communicate in any manner The attitude of this line of thinking is of concern, as it foregoes consideration of how we wish to be perceived.

Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other. – 1 Thess. 5:12-13 As Christians we are called to be respectful of each other and more so those who instruct us in the faith. Where there is lack of resp.

But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under God’s curse! – Galatians 1:8 I recently was in a conversation about Aliens and the enquirer was curious to know if they exist.
