We will never again say ‘Our gods’ to what our own hands have made.“ (Hosea 14:3). Just like Israel, we… Continue reading Hos 14v4 – Returning to God
Have you ever met someone who reads every book and watches every documentary on health and fitness? They constantly talk about the importance of a healthy lifestyle. However, they seldom engage in exercise and tend to eat unhealthy foods. They are more in love with the idea of being healthy rather than practising healthy habits… Continue reading Joh 5v39-40 – I love the idea of
I had this challenging thought the other day – “In my day-to-day life, how do I live differently from someone who doesn’t know Jesus?”.

Identifying which costs fall into each category is interesting as it makes you consider what is essential. Are donations discretionary or non-discretionary? What about your… Continue reading Heb 10v24-25 – The budget

Just get to the point. Just skip to the conclusion. Just give me the answer. Because who wants the details anyway? We live in a time where the average attention span is less than the duration of this sentence. Where instant gratification is the reigning desire, but enough with the musings; just get to the… Continue reading Pro 25v2 – The Conclusion
A house typically has many rooms. A room for preparing meals. A room for sleeping in. A room for ablutions. But there is one room every house needs, and while some think they don’t need it, it should be the biggest room of all. It’s the room for improvement. We are the house, and whatever… Continue reading Luk 5v31-32 – No room for improvement
We walk past an old house that has been painted and the garden cleaned. It looks amazing. However, on going inside, we discover a totally different scene. The walls have peeling paint.
