Pro 26v12 – Boasting!

“Do you see a man who is wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.” (Proverbs 26:12). This verse speaks to a core truth: in its quest for wisdom, the world often overlooks God. The paradox in God’s wisdom lies in its simplicity and humility, not depending on… Continue reading Pro 26v12 – Boasting!

Pro 16v18 – Pride before Fall

Can you place these words into the correct order – destruction, honour, humility, pride? Knowing the correct order will change your life. We have all seen it, the classic scene when someone boasts about something, and moments later, they come crashing down. The internet is full of videos laughing at people when this happens. Yet,… Continue reading Pro 16v18 – Pride before Fall

Job 40v8 – It’s God’s fault!

The Book of Job is one of my favourite books in the Bible. The narrative description of the depth of God’s knowledge, the intricacy of his wisdom, and the vastness of his reign leave me in awe every time I read the final chapters. But what really stood out to me this time was the… Continue reading Job 40v8 – It’s God’s fault!

Deu 8v10 – Praise God

Is your life filled with God’s abundance? When God brought Israel into the promised land, he gave them a land with streams; a land with wheat and barley, vines and figs, olive oil and honey; a land where bread was not scarce and where they lacked nothing (Deuteronomy 8:7-9). Moses told them, “When you have… Continue reading Deu 8v10 – Praise God

Phi 2v14 – Pulling against you

Our dogs love going for walks. But, it’s not the exercise that excites them but the sniffing. It’s their ultimate entertainment – the dog equivalent of Netflix. We call it Snifflix, and they love to binge. This often results in them pulling against the leash, determined to go their own way. Recently, while walking two… Continue reading Phi 2v14 – Pulling against you

Psa 36v7 – Two lives

Today, more people are atheists, choosing to believe in mankind’s solutions than in God and His promises. I often wonder whether they really know what they are rejecting. Psalm 36 compares a life filled with mankind’s ways to one filled with God. Verses 1-5 describe mankind’s ways. They have no fear of God at all.… Continue reading Psa 36v7 – Two lives

Psa 25v9 – The gift of humility

What is it about humans that we love to be right? We are proud of our point of view, proud of our correct knowledge and understanding. Yet is this the way our Heavenly Father wants us to think and behave? Is this the type of heart and mind that draws us closer to Him or… Continue reading Psa 25v9 – The gift of humility

Psa 95v6 – Warthogs

There are many animals that people are excited to see in game reserves. However, one that is not usually high up on the to-see list is the warthog. These beauty-challenged pig-like animals with their wart protrusions are often ignored as people seek out lions, leopards, elephants and other greater beasts. However, watching them on a… Continue reading Psa 95v6 – Warthogs

Eph 2v8-9 – The sighting!

We were recently blessed to spend a week in the Kruger National Park. On any safari, the most sought after experience is a cat sighting. And so we studied the maps, plotted the best routes, rose at dawn, and drove to dusk, all in search of illusive felines. However, our efforts were to no avail.… Continue reading Eph 2v8-9 – The sighting!

Gal 3v28 – A Handy lesson

“It’s Doctor, not Mister!” You might have heard someone say this or request you use some other title when addressing them. In life, we all end up in different positions – some as the CEOs of organisations and others the cleaners, some as doctors or professors and others as secretaries. While all these positions are… Continue reading Gal 3v28 – A Handy lesson
