Choices

Choices

2022 is here. What a tough year we have been through! Now more than ever, our future will depend on the choices we make today. For many of us, our lives are essentially an accumulation of the hundreds of choices we make every week.

Bad choices sometimes have devastating consequences. I know some people who paid with their lives because they refused to wear a mask or get vaccinated . . . bad choices

Anyway

Anyway

For most of us, our lives are the accumulation of the choices we make everyday. God has given you the freedom and responsibility of free choice. Choose life. Choose blessings.

Creation

Creation

God created you. Not randomly or by chance, but by design. He created you intentionally. Your life has value not because of your education/ wealth/ status/ gender/ race but because you have been created by God, and you have been created in His image. With dignity and self-respect.

Forgiveness

Forgiveness

Forgiveness is central to our lives as Christians. Without it we cannot know the love of God and we cannot love others as we should. We need to give it. We need to receive it.

Attitude

Attitude

Don’t you just hate it when someone has a really bad attitude? Our relationships are significantly affected by our own attitudes and of those we interact with.

We are not always able to control circumstances (what happens to us and around us), but we can usually control how we respond to the circumstances we find ourselves in.

We are responsible for our attitudes.

Diversity

Diversity

South Africa is such a diverse nation. Different cultures, religions, races, languages. A melting pot of diversity. A potjiekos – delicious because of the different ingredients. And so, just like the potjiekos, our lives are richer and tastier because of diversity.

Diversity should be embraced both in the church and in our society.

Courage

Courage

Discouragement. It is real and it is so prevalent in our world today. We have been through so much as a global community and sometimes it is difficult to remain courageous, but we have to – surrender is not an option.

Throughout history, people have suffered and faced almost insurmountable problems. Even in the time of Moses, God had to remind him to be strong and courageous.

Not Forgotten

Not Forgotten

Do you feel as if God has forgotten you? Sometimes we feel alienated from our friends, family and colleagues: and even God.

There are many great truths in the Bible, and one of them is that God does not forget you. You are the apple of God’s eye. You have a special place in God’s heart. God loves you and wants to have a mean
