Saturday: September 19, 2020 Luke 8:5 A sower went out to sow his seed: and as he sowed, some fell by the way side; and it was trodden down, and the fowls of the air devoured it. "When you take a punt on something", it means to take a chance and to accept the risks... Continue Reading →

AUTOMATICITY

Friday: September 18, 2020 I found something interesting while reading a book recently - the relationship between our habits and decision making.

THE “UPTAKE” EFFECT

Saturday: September 12, 2020 Luke 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
