You can tell when a person is living in God's Grace. They have peace in their hearts and are at peace with their neighbours. They're quick to show mercy and slow to condemn.
Nothing kills idealism more than poverty. Yet, it's through lack, that the passion for idealism is tested.
Innovation is one heck of a status quo changer...little wonder people at the helm of affairs want more of the same.
Procrastination...gives your rival a head start.
God said His people should pray if they want change...the people argue, they have prayed, and its time for action...and God retorted, when did His people pray? It is only the fervent prayer of the righteous that avails...not that of the syncretic, hypocritical zealots...God wins.
The Messenger and the Method may be different, but as long as the Message remains the same, then it is well...don't divide the Body...Heaven doesn't have compartments.
Bitterness, the root of unforgiveness. Love, the root of mercy.
The best way to obey the 1st Commandment is by obeying the 2nd Commandment.
What's the use running, if you are going up the wrong mountain. STOP! Where you are. Define your purpose, then continue running, in the right direction.

Churchianity is not Christianity...the latter is Christlikeness, the other is of no divine consequence.

Great sprinters know, to get ahead of your rival while on the track, all you need to do is raise your knees and pump the arms. No need to cross lanes and pull down the rival. Politicians should learn from great sprinters.
A winning Sprinter is one who has great acceleration at the start and least deceleration at the finish. You don't win at the start of the race, but at the end. A great start in life is no guarantee of a great finish...let's learn to invest our abilities for a superb finish in life.
