Lessons Learned

Reflecting on how difficult it is to present a Live video on Facebook.  I actually must be honest in telling you it was quite daunting.   It is not like when I present over the Radio, looking at myself is rather strange and you need to wait for comments to come in.

A friend of mine was doing it for the first time and to be honest he seemed to just be natural.

I now understand the Live video and it is almost the same as Radio, you still need your headphone and mic to speak to people, and the picture isn’t very clear.  Something that I believe needs some investigations.  I need to see what to do to improve the view.

I will be sending an invite out over WordPress and hopefully, I will receive a couple of views from you guys.

Thank you

 

A burning issue … to spank or not to spank your child?

Proverbs 3:12 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition

12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.

I see that in our society that we “do not spank” our children because they have rights.  The sad thing I believe is that we are cultivating a society of undisciplined spoilt brats.  I have attended a couple of school meetings and it is obvious that the children have more say than the adults or teachers.  They become rioters when they do not get their way.  Hmm, something is very wrong with this picture.  What happens to our respect for the people in authority?  What happened to the respect for our elders and parents?  The teacher doesn’t even get the necessary respect.

We are failing our children dismally, it is such a sad story but they [children] have no consequences.  Tell me why don’t we step up to the plate and act righteously with our children?  Are we afraid of them?  Why do we let them get away with murder?

Shamefully, we allow these things, we actually don’t care about them.  We say that its part of growing up and they will mature and get over it.  My question to you Mom and Dad, will they really get over it?  You set the example and your standards have they dropped?  Why?

Being mediocre and living a mediocre life is okay, what happen to my best every day?  What happens to been proud of my work?  What happened to been the best I can be wherever I go?

Shame, shame, shame on you mom and dad.  Shame.  We should stop and take a look at who we have become and start setting the record straight.  Be that example your children look up to and make them proud.

Nothing But Future:  God inspired

Luke 6:38 (CEV)

38 If you give to others, you will be given a full amount in return. It will be packed down, shaken together, and spilling over into your lap. The way you treat others is the way you will be treated.

Here is the thing, what has giving got to do with “Nothing but future:  God inspired?”  That is just it when we are faithful in our giving to others, giving to God and helping each other.  God sees this and opens doors of opportunities for us.

You do not know what lay in your future, but I am certain you are excited, something great is coming you believe and know this.  Perhaps you are going to University, or you are going to college.  You even might be embarking on a new job with great prospects.

Nothing but future, in my own life I am looking forward to something so awesome I still can hardly get my head around it.  I wrote a Daily Devotional book over three years and finally, I completed it.  My wildest dreams have come true, my book is going to be published.

Nothing but future for myself, a milestone in my own life, it’s never been done in my family.  How awesome is our God!

Lord thank You so much for this great opportunity!!

Praise Your Holy Name.
