My Humble Summation as we Witness Another Christmas

kccc

Throwback to some years ago, I always looked forward for Christmas seasons, reasons been that, I saw it as times where I get to eat plenty “good food” & meat, wear “Christmas clothes”, see relatives I haven’t seen in a while, embarked on various visits, travels, adventures & journeys. I also realized that people were unusually generous during the season, so I get quite a good sum of freebies then. Hence Christmas was always what keeping my eyes on the road for.

Today as I grow older, I see people with many motives, intentions & reasons for Christmas. Just like poor me, most of their rationale are good but are not the reason for the season.
I watched people caught in the mist of activities, the glamour, celebration without the Celebrant in the picture. Shame.

Long story cut short, my humble summation as we witness another Christmas period, I will encourage us to:
1. Look beyond activities and see The reason for the season. (JESUS)
2. See this period as an opportunity to reflect Christ. (What Will Jesus Do WWJD).
3. Not just share gifts with friends and love ones but to give them the ultimate Gift of salvation (Jesus)
4. Make our world better; Add JESUS….

Merry Christmas.

AIDS and YOU: Nowhere To Go

By Patrick Dixon

Is it Really Worse Than Cancer?

Imagine that you go the doctor because you have been feeling very run down and tired for the last few weeks. He sends you to the clinic where they do one or two tests. Before you know what is happening they have rushed you up to the ward. They do some more tests and everyone runs around looking very worried.

Then the doctor comes in and tells you that you are seriously ill and you will need to have a big operation tomorrow. He says you will be in for at least a week. Two days later you have a very rare form of cancer. It is very advanced and the outlook is terrible.

Your whole world has fallen apart in an instant: all your hopes and dreams for the future have been dashed. It cannot really be true. It is hard to take in: your plans for training, a job, a home of your own, maybe to get married and have children have been crushed.

Your parents are beside each other with worry and grief. What kind of a world is it where children die before their parents? It is like whole natural order has been turned upside down.

No Where to go

Feeling Suicidal

But AIDS can seem worse than any of this. What would you do if you went to give blood and a few days later a letter came asking you to re-attend, and when you got back a man there tell you that your blood has been tested positive for HIV?

Sometimes I asked a class at school this same question and many people tell me that they would commit suicide. They could not face the thought of everyone wondering how they had got it. How could they tell Dad? Could they tell him about using drugs, or having been with many women, or being gay and having sex with lots of other boys and men?

Many people do feel like committing suicide and some actually do, just after finding out about AIDS or an early infection, which is why so much care and support is needed after someone has been told. A friend of mine who is a doctor was shocked one day to wake up in the morning and find that someone had gassed himself with the exhaust. He had discharged himself against advice from the AIDS ward just a few hours previously. He could not face the thought of life with AIDS.

Do not stigmatize or judge HIV positive people, they need your care more. They can live their normal life and fulfill their destiny. Support an AIDS patient today.

LEARN FROM SUSANNAH WESLEY HOW TO RAISE GOODLY CHILDREN

Are you finding it difficult to raise Godly children? The task of raising children in this age could be a herculean task with the impact of modern world and jet age civilization.

However, Susannah Wesley, a mother of 19 children among whom are Charles Wesley and john Wesley. Founder of Methodist church, succeeds in her time. Here are some of her basic rules which can be of great benefits for this day’s parents in child upbringing.

  • Allow no eating between meals.
  • Put all children to bed by 8 o’clock.
  • Require them to take medicine without complaining.
  • Subdue self- will in a child, and thus work together with God to save his soul.
  • Teach your child to pray as soon as he knows how to speak.
  • Give them nothing they cry for, only those which they ask for politely.
  • To prevent lying, punish no fault which is first confessed or repented of.
  • Never allow a sinful act go unpunished.
  • Commend and reward good behaviour.
  • Any attempt to please, even poorly perform should be commended.
  • Preserve property right even in the smallest matters.
  • Strictly observe all promises.
  • Be humble and mature enough to accept responsibility for your wrongs a apologize for wrongs
