DROP THE TOY TO GET THE MEAL

I was feasting on a plate of beans and plantain. Olive was fiddling with her toy guitar. She wanted to get on the chair and have access to what I was eating. She tried climbing with her guitar but it was hard. My daughter made a great choice- she dropped her toy and climbed the chair. She reached out to […]

GIFTS ARE NOT ENOUGH, CHARACTER COUNTS!

A dear brother was in training once when one of his colleagues asked a question: They have two young men in the ministry. One was heavily talented but not available. He does things as he wants. The other brother was not as talented as the first but he was available and very consistent with a teachable spirit. Now the ministry […]

WHEN IT LOOKS LIKE IT BUT…

It was a Sunday morning. We stood by the roadside awaiting a cab when a Toyota Camry packed by our side. The gentleman asked where we were headed. He knew the place and although it was not his direction, he chose to give up a lift to church. We were three lawyers in the car that day. When I spotted […]

“HOW WILL YOU BE PAID?”

After listening attentively to me while I narrated my call to ministry in Eruwa, a dear father asked me a question, “Temi, I know God has called but how will you be paid?” I smiled and said to him, “Daddy, if we can trust multinationals to pay their employees without fail. Do you ever think God can owe the ones […]

WHEN DADDY SANG, I CRIED!

Some few minutes after the delivery of our second baby, I called my parents to share the good news. Dad picked up a hymn in rejoicing that spoke about how the battle has been won and the triumphing grace of Christ Jesus. As he sang in thanksgiving, I did not know when tears began to swell up in my eyes […]

BRING BACK THE ROMANCE

It was a Sunday evening. My wife turned over and gave me that loving look which had “I have something on my heart to tell you” stamped into it. She said, “Darling, can I tell you something truthfully?”. “Yes, dear. Please do”, I replied. Then comes the lovely knock out “I am bored”. Instinct would make a man think like, […]

DISGUISE MAY NOT WIN THAT WAR

The police officer stopped me and asked me to kindly identify myself. I was in a hurry to catch up with our midweek service. I told him my name and that, “I am a lawyer”. That earned me an immediate pass. But I failed the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit asked again as I drove off to identify myself. I […]

DANKASELE TIGA & THE BLESSING OF INTERPRETERS

We landed at the airport in Kano that day. We knew how expensive it was to charter an airport taxi to our Law School Campus at Bagauda. We opted to get to town and find buses. Exactly what we did. But we were at the roadside for so long- we did not get a bus heading to Bagauda. To make […]

“YOU CANNOT HANDLE IT YET”

Danielle was playing some educational games on her mum’s tablet. Olive was observing and dancing to the music coming from the games. Some minutes later, she began to reach out and grab the tablet from her sister. While she struggled to get it from her sister, I called out to her and said to her, “Olive, you cannot handle it […]

GET SET TO FLY

Four months after the commencement of the ministry in Eruwa, my Spiritual Father came to Eruwa for a meeting. I had the privilege of telling him about the vision. He said to me, “Son, get set to fly”. Beloved, the call of God never reduces a man. It is a call to increase always. The call of God is always […]
