Githeri 027: The Passing of a Wise Elder

The passing of a wise elder is more than the burning of a huge library. Our condolences to the entire people of Ghana over the demise of Professor John Atta Mills yesterday, 24th July, 2012. The death of President Mills in not only a loss to the people of Ghana but to the entire people of Africa. May the Lord grant our Ghanaian brothers and sisters the fortitude to bear the loss. Though painful, the death of a brother in Christ is not a loss, rather it is a transition unto glory (1 Thessalonians 4: 16-18)! Sovereign Lord, may you grant wisdom, godliness and a deep sense of direction to the acting President of Ghana, Mr. John Dramani Mahama. Our prayers are with the people and nation of Ghana!

Githeri 026: Beware of “Achan”!

“If one finger brings oil it soils the others” (Chinua Achebe).  “Do not be misled: “Bad company corrupts good character””  (1 Corinthians 15: 33; Cf. Matthew 7: 15-16). Remember Achan “who brought disaster on Israel by taking plunder that had been set apart for the Lord” (1 Chronicles 2:7; Cf. Joshua 7).  Beware brethren! A word is enough…!
