“It’s my life” – a slogan that breeds decadence!

For instance, the brothers of Joseph sold him in envy but then, they were merely selling him into greatness
– Benjamin Franklin
It’s in human nature to forget the very many good deeds you have done in the past but to judge you based on the present mistake. Hmmn!
That simply means, we need to live circumspectly. But then, isn’t it harsh to judge a fellow man based on just his present folly?
Well, both actually work hand-in-hand to move mountains; Ideas show where bulldozers should go to work.
That is to say, ideas or plans aren’t enough for success, the execution aspect is an essential.

What are Values?
VALUES are like filters, they determine what is acceptable to you or not. whatever comes out of your mouth or manifests in your behaviour depends on what your values have allowed to pass or not to pass.
If you value Justice — you will not oppress others and you will tend to dislike oppressors
If you value friendship — you’ll be tend to be forgiving
If you value Truth — you will not lie against another and you will not want to associate with people that lie
If you value good health, you’ll be mindful of what you eat
If you value Peace of mind, you’d want to stay away from trouble etc
That simply means, as long as what he owes outweighs what he pays back, in effect, he is still in deficit. This is a general truth. This is the lesson of the Number Line.
The family, indisputably, is the bedrock of the society. The bedrock, remember is like a foundation. The word bedrock also refers to a rock that has formed or hardened.
And you know, it’s not easy to re-shape the rock but it is possible to give it a shape at the early stage of formation.
Today’s children are the adults of tomorrow.
The way they’re shaped today determines to a very large extent, what they’ll become tomorrow.
If a child lives with criticism,
he learns to condemn
If a child lives with hostility
he learns to fight
If a child lives with shame
he learns guilt
If a child lives with tolerance
he learns patience
If a child lives with encouragement
he learns confidence
If a child lives with praise
he learns to appreciate
If a child lives with fairness
he learns justice
If a child lives with friendship
he learns to love
It is said, “what is learnt in the cradle lasts to the tomb”.
The home is the first and best place to mold a child. Teach that child the right way to go now!

A couple Thomas assisted by his partner, Abiola, managed to pocket about £87,000 after submitting almost 2,500 handwritten false claim applications for tax credits and benefits.
According to the story as reported by the DailyMail, Thomas, with Abiola’s help, used stolen personal details to complete these claim forms. When the claims were successful, the pair withdrew cash from acquaintances’ bank accounts or from bogus post office accounts that Thomas, who masterminded the scam, had set up. The report has it that they had claimed £3 million from the Department of Work and Pensions and received £44,000.
How was the fraud uncovered?
The fraud was discovered when benefits staff noticed the same address was being used for multiple claims.
And what does that remind us? The ungoodly man is ensnared by his own mistakes.
What did the couple use the money for?
Twas discovered that the pair spent the money on designer clothing and electrical items including a 50-inch plasma television.
What was the court’s judgement?
Thomas, an illegal immigrant, was jailed for seven years while Abiola, also a Nigerian national with leave to remain in the UK, received two-and-a-half years.
Judge Kennedy also indicated that both Thomas and Abiola should be deported at the end of their prison terms.
The pair, who carried out the scam between January 3, 2007 and October 7, 2011, tried to claim £827,000 from HMRC, securing £43,000.

All that men laboured for, their joy, their love
Down the drain they’re gone! they’re perished !
By the sea of waters; the sea had lost its cool
But thot they say “As calm as the sea”. What then happened?
In reflection came this line:
For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead (Rom 1:2)
“Ahaa !” I exclaimed.
The sea is calm but in the day of its wrath, ships roll ashore like empties
The Almighty is calm, patient & gentle but in the day of His wrath, mountains will melt !
It is written:
“For God so loved you & I that He gave His only son, Jesus, a just man, to die instead of us, paying for our sins, so that thru Jesus, we may have access to Him in blissful eternity ~ John 3:16
And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts” ~ Rev 21:6
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” ~ Mt 7:7
“That we should be to the praise of His glory ...” ~ Eph 1:12
Jesus died on the cross that you may live . Jesus has paid the debts that you owe. Ask Him into your heart today and you’ll be glad you did
