ALTERNATIVE PERSPECTIVES

Saturday: January 18, 2020 I recall a scene in a movie where a character introduced herself as 'Fat Amy'. When asked why, she responded in a manner that suggested that she was well aware that others would call her that even behind her back so she might as well join in. In conversations with others,...

LESSONS FROM SAMUEL AND HIS SONS

Friday: January 17, 2020 Reference: 1 Samuel 8:1-22 From reading the text today, I have a number of questions, but will ask two of them: 1. Why did Samuel wait till he was old before appointing his sons as judges in Israel? If there was precedence to go with, the example of Isaac should have... Continue Reading →

OUR WALK ISN’T JUST PHYSICAL

Thursday: January 16, 2020 My bicycle has no mud guards at the moment because its design makes getting a fitting pair quite tricky. During the dry season, that is no issue at all but with wet conditions, it produces a rather unwanted setback. It tends to stain any clothing worn rather badly and the closer... Continue Reading →

YOUR RESPONSE IS NEEDED

Wednesday: January 15, 2020 Reference text: 1 Samuel 3:1-10,19,20 1 Samuel 3:10 And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel.

A PURPOSE HAS BEEN GIVEN

Monday: January 13, 2020 Reference: 1 Samuel 1:1-8 1 Samuel 1:8 Finally her husband Elkanah said to her, "Hannah, why do you weep and not eat? Why are you so sad? Am I not better to you than ten sons?" Elkanah's words today may have been spoken in a desperate bid to comfort Hannah, his... Continue Reading →

NOT JUST A PAST MEMORY

Sunday: January 12, 2020 Today is the feast of the Baptism of Jesus and so a question which caught me a bit off guard is that which I also wish to ask you: 'We remember our dates of birth, but do we remember the dates of our Baptism?' In conversations with many other Christians, we... Continue Reading →

STRATEGIC POSITIONING

Saturday: January 11, 2020 John 3:23 And John also was baptizing in Aenon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were baptized. A little bit of history shows that a multitude of factors influenced the final settling ground of many different cultures. Amongst them: fertile ground for planting, clean... Continue Reading →

AN EXPLOSIVE ALLIANCE

Friday: January 10, 2020 Luke 5:12 And it happened when He was in a certain city, that behold, a man who was full of leprosy saw Jesus; and he fell on his face and implored Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” When one wants a definite positive response to...
