To him, he had the unfortunate luck of ending up with an unfair boss. He was doing his best but for some unexplained reason, he was always the one picked last
Last for commendation and last for promotion if he ever got any. His appraisals were very good but he wasn’t recommended for promotion. This happened more than once. It was clear to him – his boss probably had it in for him.
Fortunately, things were starting to smile his way.
A friend of his had told him told him about a position that opened up in another company. More pay and a better role – just the combination his skills deserved.
“And maybe a boss that appreciates my skills”, he said to himself.
He was about to send his CV and for some reason, he could not commit himself to the process. He was sure he would get the job so it was the fear of failing that was holding him back.
He remembered something he heard in church. “Don’t stay where you are not celebrated”, the preacher had said.
He was not getting the “celebration” vibe from his boss. He was sure it was ok to make the move.
“Time to go where I will be celebrated”, he convinced himself.
But what was holding him back from making the move?

He was sure that they were talking about him in a way that would not win his trust.
Better put, he was sure his colleague was discussing the new idea he shared with him with his boss. His problem with that? He was sure the guy was taking credit for the idea. Trust is a big problem with this guy.
This was one issue he saw with the guy. He couldn’t be trusted not to want to have one over anyone and everyone – even if it meant stealing their ideas.
He mentioned what happened to another colleague. Guess what, the guy had done the same thing to her!
According to her, she had adopted an “avoid” strategy with him. She zipped her mouth when around him. She also avoided any non-official interaction with him. No need to show him any form of trust.
“So what are you going to do about him” she asked him.
“I haven’t thought about it” he replied.
But he was thinking hard
How was he going to deal with this “sneaky” colleague in a God-honoring way?Read More
- He believes the practice of religion (chief of which is Christianity) is one of the biggest reason for African countries’ underdevelopment

The only other adrenaline pumping talk that matches talking politics is talking sports. Football, tennis, basketball, choose your pick. They turn one-time friends into strong rivals and create common ground between strangers.That is a conversation for another day.Recently, a pastor posted that any fellow pastor supporting a particular candidate is a murderer. Very strong words. Especially if you consider that no murderer has a place in the kingdom of God
How could Jesus have stayed dead for 3 days if Easter says he was crucified on Friday evening and resurrected on Sunday morning? The math was not adding up
By my calculations, that seemed less than 72 hours if I go by the words of Jesus on the expected timeline for Him to stay dead.
For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. – Matt 12:40
So, what happened here?
