    2018.

    This marks the last post of the year as we’ll be on sabbatical from December until early next year. Hearty thanks to everyone who showed up, spent time here and gave us their sentiments online or in person. I believe the only way to change the world is one person at a time. You’re our one person. 🙂 As I wind down 2018, these are some of the thoughts I’m carrying with me: You don’t have to have a big title to wield powerful influence. My greatest joys and deepest disappointments in the marketplace have come from people who either chose to value their positions and serve well or absconded…

    Not All Heroes Wear Capes

    There are people who serve in the shadows. People who don’t have any fancy titles or accolades but continue to do their work faithfully. People who allow God to entrust them with destinies that seem far greater than their own and pour their all into them. People who allow others to stand on their shoulders and be in the spotlight even if it means they never get any recognition for it. They’re heroes in my view. Unassuming and often overlooked, but heroes nonetheless. This is probably why I find it interesting that when most people talk about their dreams and desires in life, there’s an element of recognition attached to…

But Miyagi keeps giving him seemingly menial tasks such as cleaning and waxing his car using a “wax on, wax off” motion. Before long, Daniel has had enough and questions his master’s training. Only for Miyagi to show him that every menial task he’s given him has taught him an essential karate move. Regardless of what field you’re in, there’s probably an element of repetition in the things you do and the people you engage with on a daily basis. Sometimes,…

    Speak!

    When God speaks, creation changes. Our first introduction to God in the Bible is of Him as One who creates, forming something good out of nothing, through speech. As human beings who are made in His image, and believers who have been set apart and empowered in Christ, it shouldn’t be a far stretch to believe that when we speak, creation will change as well. Creation knows it. For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain…

    Pastor Appreciation Month: Prayer

    We get to end the month on the same note we started it on – by honouring the ministers in our lives, this time in prayer. If you’ve just joined this party and have no idea what’s happening, read this first. It’s not too late to get it done. Besides, the heart of this call is to stir up a culture in us that regularly extends gratitude and honour to those God is using to bless us. As we come to the end of Pastor Appreciation Month, more commonly known as October, I’d like us to take time to pray over these ministers as follows: Refreshing for them and their…
