“GOD KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING”

We were travelling from Eruwa to Lagos. We had the first delay at the entry point to Abeokuta. We ran into a ditch, and the exhaust pipe got broken. We spent about two hours fixing that. Some minutes after moving, we got into heavy traffic. There was another delay of about an hour or more.  One of my dear ones […]

DO NOT CONCEAL WHAT CAN RUIN YOUR MARRIAGE

There was a Sunday afternoon that issues just began to brew. Irewamiri and I did not seem to find our sync and rhythm. She even strolled from the house for some hours. We would normally resolve all matters, no matter what, before going to bed. That night, I pranked her, but it solved the matter. I told her that our […]

THE STRUGGLING BROTHER, RANDOM GIRLS AND DATING APPS

A beloved one came to visit me some years ago. He had just landed his second job. We were both super excited about the possibilities of his life. But I had a prompt to ask him about his tithes and he admitted he was not paying tithes as he used to. I encouraged him to always pay his tithe.  (Tithing […]

TWO THINGS THAT MUST BE CHECKED EVERY TIME YOU DRESS UP

A member of the church asked another member some years ago, “Does the Pastor see your status? Because if he sees this your status, I am sure by now you would have gotten a message from him!” What was the issue? She was indecently dressed with her cleavage out, and she paraded it on her status.  Christianity and indecency are […]

DRAW THE LINE!

A dear minister friend shared how a protégé called him once and said she had a dream where an ant bit her on her breast. She wanted to talk to him. He simply referred her to his wife. Those were not conversations meant for him.  The relationship between a minister and the people he leads can be one that has […]

THAT MISTAKE IS NOT THE END!

Danielle woke up in the middle of the night while I worked. After a while, she mentioned that she was hungry. There was a cup of beverage that Olive only took a sip out of some hours earlier. I offered that to her. As she drank, she wanted to move her leg and it all poured away. It pained me […]

WHEN GENUINE CARE BECOMES A PROBLEM

There was a night Danielle went to bed pretty early and she woke up hungry the next day. She was so hungry that she wanted to have anything in sight. She took some water first. Then as a caring Dad, I wanted her to be strong on time, so I gave her a drink. She rushed it. A few minutes […]

YOU WILL MIRROR WHAT YOU DISLIKED IN YOUR FATHER EXCEPT… 

During one of our training sessions, a young man stood up and said to me, “I hate my father and what he is doing, but I am doing exactly the same today. I hated to see my father drunk, but now I am drinking. I know that I will end up like him, looking at the path I am already […]

YOUR CHARACTER CAN BE A KEY OR A LOCK!

I got information from a reliable source requesting that I recommend some people for a job in a financial institution. While processing and thinking about those I could reach out to, I remembered a young man who was not close to me in any way, but I knew he needed such an opportunity.  I placed a call to those who […]

HOW TO OVERCOME A BEGGARLY MINDSET

In the early years of ministry, I went to visit a dear family that I love dearly. Normally, when I visited as an undergraduate, it was certain that I would leave with some good money in my pocket. Do you know the way a broke student announces to his uncle or aunt the day he will be leaving? If he […]
