Everyone likes a little bit of adventure in their life. There is a story told in the Bible about David, who was always ready for Adventure. He was the youngest son of his father; he would take his father’s sheep’s and look after them. Continue reading
When someone you care about hurts you, you can hold on to anger, resentment and thoughts of revenge — or embrace forgiveness and move forward by Letting go of bitterness and hostility and forgiving them from the heart and being reconciling to them.

Most of us would like to put an end to all kinds’ of hatred. We should all learn to get over our hatred and stop being mad at everyone all the time, because life is short. Enjoy your life while you can because you only get one of them. Why waste time being angry, upset, or hostile to other people.
Just because we don’t like the other person’s gesture, behaviour, habit or anything that counters our policies doesn’t give us the right to hate them. Some people say that they don’t hate anything, but of course, that would be a lie. We all have hate; it is an emotion that we are all born with and we must work to overcome it every day.

All around the world, we often hear stories of court cases, where justice hasn’t been done. In most nations there is procedure to appeal against miscarriage of justice. Most of the time injustice is carried out because of evidence which is available during the trial. In some cases the witnesses give false evidence against the accused, which ultimately leading to wrongful conviction.
When we examine The Trial of Jesus Christ we discover that he too was falsely accused of many things. “And they that had taken Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were gathered together. Matthew 26:57 and the next morning, “They took Jesus to the high priest, and all the chief priests, the elders and the teachers of the law came together.” Mark 14:53 after another consultation by the priests, “Very early in the morning, the chief priests, with the elders, the teachers of the law and the whole Sanhedrin, made their plans. So they bound Jesus, led him away and handed him over to Pilate. Mark 15:1 Continue reading →
“Jealousy comes from self-love rather than from true love.” Iris Murdoch
We are often jealous of others for many unfounded reasons. The reason for being, extremely Jealous is because we are envious of what others have, which can lead us into all kinds of problems, some have even killed others in order to take what they have.
King Solomon puts it like this, “Peace of mind makes the body healthy, but jealousy is like a cancer” Proverbs 14:30” Yes wrong kind of jealousy can be un-healthy for us. Solomon also said, “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.” Proverbs 14:30. The effects of jealousy is that we end up destroying our body. Lord Jesus said that Jealousy starts in the heart, “For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man ‘unclean.” Mark 7:21-23
“To cure jealousy is to see it for what it is, a dissatisfaction with self.” Joan Didion
