REVISITING LESSONS

When I saw it, I said it out. Irewamiri asked, “Where did you see that?” I told her it was right on my phone. I had taken note a while back that: “Whatever will cause the downfall of a man followed him to the top”. Can I say it again? “Whatever will cause the downfall of a man followed him […]

“ARE YOU A PASTOR?”

On the trip, the police officer asked me to park for routine check. After checking the car’s trunk, he requested for the papers and my driver’s license. I handed it over to me. While checking the papers, he asked me, “Are you a Pastor?” I replied in the affirmative. He said to me, “You should have introduced yourself and I […]

OUR WHATSAPP APP

We were simply looking into each other’s eyes and talking. An evening time out was enjoyable. Then she remembered that the Whatsapp App on her phone was not working. I picked the phone and began to work on it. After succeeding, I handed the phone over to her and she said “Thank you”. She began to check up the phone […]

Dad said to him, “He has made a wise choice. I really […]

It was a high brow hotel on the Island somewhere in Lagos State. I had stopped over to say hello to a dear mentor who was in town. After our discussion, I dipped my hands into my pocket and slipped a cash gift into his hands- It was my way of saying thank you. He does not need my money. […]

MISTAKES THE YOUNG MAKE (4)

He is a key person in the church. He walked to my office and said to me, “Pastor, I am sorry I did not say this earlier. I will leave service to speak some where”. I responded, “You can go but when you return, we have a discussion”. Friends, platforms and invitations are exciting. They always seem like affirmation that […]

He looked at me that night and said, “I have done everything I can but the ministry is not growing”. I asked him, “Describe how you feel in one word. And please dont try to sound like a pastor”.
