QUOTE OF THE DAY: “ONLY THE RIGHT THING BUILDS POSTERITY”

ANCHOR TEXT: “So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables”

Acts 6:2.

There  is no alternative to doing the right thing.  In the course of doing the right thing, you may hurt the feelings of people, but that does not really matter.  Doing the right thing gives a sense of satisfaction, it removes guilt and gives you confidence towards God and man. It is doing the thing that pleases God, and at the same time serves the best interest of humanity, it means taking the right step in the right direction, some of which are; being selfless, being sacrificial, adding values to others to mention a few.  The right thing may not appeal to public opinion; it may not attract the support of the majority, and may generate controversy but at the end of it all, no matter how long it takes, it is the right thing that will prevail.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “HE WHO SEES CHALLENGES IN EVERY OPPORTUNITY IS A POOR MAN”

Numbers 13:30.

 Sometimes ago, according to Gary C. Payne, wolves were picking off the livestock of ranchers at an alarming rate, so the state offered a bounty of five thousand dollars for every wolf killed. That problem at hand turned Sam and Jed into fortune hunters. Day and night, they searched the mountains and forests looking for their prey. At a time, they got exhausted and fell asleep, yet dreaming and aiming to hit it big. Suddenly, Sam woke up to see fifty wolves with flaming eyes and bared teeth.  He nugged his friend Jed, and said, look, we are rich! Despite the fact that they were surrounded with problems, they chose not to see danger and disaster associated with their present situation, instead, they saw wealth knocking at their door and began strategizing on how to kill the wolves. If you were Sam, what would be your reaction? (more…)
