Then there is the extreme we should guard against. In 1 Kings 21:1-24, an innocent man loses his life and inheritance due to the greed of a king. What is it that may push us to such extremes? We should be careful and also have others who can hold us […]
If mortal things are the primary focus of our life on earth, then we may just miss the Messiah just like the Jews did in John 10:22-42. May our primary focus be the immortal or eternity. That will help us escape corruption & many vices.
Greed leads one to even break the law in order to acquire wealth or possessions. Many of the murders being committed countrywide are motivated by greed for material wealth. Proverbs 1:19 warns against this. If the desire to acquire something by any means consumes you, be careful.

It is mentioned severally in the old testament because of its significance-Micah 5:2. It demonstrates God’s love through what Christ and His disciples did while one earth-Luke […]
The United Kingdom conquered a large part of the world and left its influence even after those nations gained independence. We still drive on the left, eat with a fork & knife, have 1 or 2 English names, use English as an official language, etc. We can’t refute that we […]
There is a sense of expectation, waiting for the Lord to show Himself strong. May we not be disappointed like Isaiah 26:18 says. Our desire should be to establish God’s kingdom wherever He places us. How I pray that we shall experience what verse 19 says. May the Lord have […]
