After you…

Some courteous people are not Christians, but all Christians should be courteous. -Louise Kimberly Harrison

Today I found myself having to open an account at a bank I had  left 10 years ago. One of the reasons I had left was congested banking halls, rude staff and most of all very un-courteous  clients. Today it was not as crowded as I remember, and the staff members were friendly and knowledgeable. However twice I shook my head as my fellow customers skipped the que ahead of me. And as I stood there willing myself to let it go, I wondered why it is not any different among the sons and daughters of God.

Fruitful

“Therefore, by their fruits you will know them”

The Words of Jesus Christ cannot be more clear and precise than this. “By their fruits, you will know them,” the Savior tells His disciples. Before that, He warned them to beware of false prophets who come in sheep’s clothing. The one criterion for telling them apart, simple, by their fruits.

Hannah’s Sister: Waiting with her

Remember when you were a little girl and you were going on a trip the next day,there was so much excitement that came along with the time of waiting before the big day, it set the mood for the trip, and your heart swelled with incredible joy and wonder as the trip began.

Or maybe it was Christmas, or the arrival of a much-loved family friend or relative.

Waiting: Isabella’s Story

By Isabella Chirchir

In this day and age, we want everything fast. We are impatient and don’t want to wait at all, but at times we are made to put a little brake on somethings and wait. When we go to the bank, post office, government institutions, we have to wait to be served. I had my share of waiting to be served and I am still waiting for some of my dreams and heart’s desires to be manifested.
