How to love when it seems hard

How to love when it seems hard by Toyosi Adegunle “You can’t give what you don’t have” is a popular phrase that is mostly used to describe the inability to express a character or trait. When people are unable to love, forgive, or show kindness, it might be due to the fact that they don’t have it which means they never experienced it first-hand from the people around them, they’ve never really seen it play out hence they can exactly show it to other people.  Is there anything that you haven’t experienced, hence can’t give? Surely, there might be a lot of that, but the love of God I believe is not one of them. You can give love because you have it, in abundance in fact.  “Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.” - I John‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ I randomly say “I have a lot of love in me to give and show” which is the truth because it’s plenty where it comes from - my heart, where the love of God is shed abroad; and it’s the same f

Being a good financial steward as a Christian

Financial stewardship tips for Christians by Nnamdi Udeze How do we deal with your finances as Christians? If you grew up in a church like I did, you must have heard someone talk about being a good steward, especially with our finances, and we have given many interpretations to it over the years.   How do we handle money as Christians? If you asked this question in a room full of Christians, you would most likely hear a variety of answers.  In this piece, we'll examine what it truly means to be a good steward of money, and how, while it sounds great in church, what does it actually means in your day-to-day life. What is stewardship The term "stewardship" is derived from an Old English word that meant "care for" or "manage." A steward is someone who administers another person's property or possessions.  As an example, consider a business owner who hires a manager to handle the day-to-day operations of the company; the manager is not the owner but a

How to help a friend struggling in their faith

How to help a friend struggling in their faith by Toyosi Adegunle One of the many reasons for friendship is support and help in many forms. More specifically, lifting your friends up, helping them in good and bad times, supporting them for good causes and showing up generally are major attributes that can strengthen and help your friendship grow.  “ As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend .” Proverbs‬ ‭27:17‬ ‭NKJV‬‬ A lot of things can be responsible for struggling with personal faith. Sometimes, its adult life is overwhelming and other times, it is a myriad of personal issues.  How do I know I am struggling with my faith? Do they struggle to pray? Do they find it hard to study the bible?  Are they finding it hard to hold on to the truth of God's word during difficulties?  Is meditating on the scriptures unattainable?  Are they finding it hard to fellowship with others? Go to church? Serve in church? or are they generally uninterested in activities r

How to make Easter about Jesus Christ

How to make Easter about Jesus Christ When I think about Easter, I think about how Jesus Christ died, was buried and resurrected on the third day for the forgiveness of my sins. It makes me reflect on God's great love for me and the world. That before the foundation of the earth, He had me in mind. For the average Christian in my circle, Easter is also about the greatest sacrifice ever known to mankind. Some call it the greatest scandal. That God became man, died as man, was buried as man and resurrected so all those who believe in Him will never perish. In my world that's the reality. As I continue to get settled into Canada, I've been learning about an easter that has nothing to do with Jesus Christ and the significance of what was done on the cross. This easter is about dinners, easter bunnies, Easter egg hunts and other family traditions that aren't focused on the person of Christ. I did a little research on the history of these traditions and it was interesting to
