  • Driven By Service Or Desire For More Cows?

    In the 2016 movie “Arrival,” the linguist reveals that in Sanskrit, the word for “war” translates to “a desire for more cows.” It’s a simple yet profound concept. Wanting more cows symbolizes our desires for wealth, power, and connections. While these desires aren’t inherently bad, problems arise when greed becomes the driving force. As 1…

  • Rebuilding The Nation By Righteousness, Mercy And Justice

    In a nation gripped by senseless corruption and escalating cases of kidnapping and banditry, the call to righteousness, mercy, and justice becomes paramount. Recent incidents, such as the abduction of passengers from Abuja-bound buses in Kogi State, Nigeria, reveal the profound weakness in the fabric of our society. Beyond prayers, it’s a clarion call for…

  • Let Your Mission Reflect The Beauty Of Heaven

    As you pursue your mission, make sure your core values include truth, goodness, and beauty. These values ensure a profound and positive impact. When your endeavors align with the principles of beauty—wholeness, harmony, and radiance—they transcend mere productivity. Beauty adds depth and purpose to your mission, making it resonate with the universal sense of goodness.…

  • A Divine Calling To Craft Beauty

    Operating with creativity and your spiritual gifts transforms you into a source of light, radiating truth, goodness, and beauty—just like your heavenly Father. Emulating Him, we strive to bring beauty into the world. While some claim beauty is subjective, it’s not superficial; it’s not merely in the eye of the beholder. Your mission is to…

  • Reflecting God’s Love In Your Friendships And Relationships

    The law of giving and receiving also applies to love. The measure of love we show others reflects the love we receive. It’s a simple but profound spiritual principle. With this in mind, our relationships should reflect the divine, selfless love of God. As we navigate life’s twists and turns, the essence of our connections…

  • The Senselessness And Destructive Paradox Of Nigerian Corruption

    Public sector looting, especially in places like Nigeria, baffles with its senselessness. It’s not just corruption for financial gain; it’s corruption that cripples nations from within. Unlike corruption in the West, where the motive might be to make a buck, the looting here is like a man stealing blocks from his own house every night.…

  • Here’s The Freedom To Do Anything You Like

    While some believe the Bible imposes strict limits, it actually encourages freedom. Ecclesiastes 11:9 advises, “Rejoice, O young person, in your youth; let your heart cheer you in the days of your youth. Walk in the ways of your heart and the sight of your eyes.” However, it comes with a caution: be aware that…

  • Success Requires Trials, Errors And Feedback

    Pray and plan, but true progress begins with that first step. As Helmuth von Moltke wisely stated, “No plan survives first contact with the enemy.” Steve Blank echoes, “No business plan survives first contact with a customer.” Even the most detailed plans demand adjustments. In the initial stages, lacking real-world experience, gaps exist in your…

  • Embrace The Lessons From Every Outcome

    Each step of your mission journey serves as a classroom, a space for continuous learning. As you take actions towards getting things done in your mission, you will not always have favourable outcomes. But, even obstacles can become stepping stones. Every endeavour, whether successful or unsuccessful, serves as a tutor, leading you closer to the…

  • Navigating Your Mission With Clear Goals And Diverse Approaches

    In pursuing your mission, flexibility is key. Your initial plan is a guide, not a rigid path. Ecclesiastes 11:6 encourages sowing seeds in the morning and evening, hinting at diverse approaches. Likewise, in your mission, go wide with varied strategies. You can’t predict which idea will flourish, so give yourself permission to try many within…
