Birds of a feather

An English proverb says: Birds of a feather flock together. In Afrikaans, we say ons dam se ganse (the geese that belong in our dam). I suspect this is true for all of us. We choose friends that are more or less like us. We choose schools for our children where the education is the […]

Think, talk and act like Jesus

I look up to my mentor. I wish I could be more like him. He does so much for everybody. When he is with you, all his attention is focused on you, making you feel so special. When he talks about God, he speaks with authority. You can ask him virtually everything about the Bible […]

For sale, for free

With his crucifixion, Jesus opened a shop with loads of brand new clothes in every town. Anyone could enter and exchange his or her dirty clothes. As you enter, you pass a lovely burning fire. You can throw your old clothes into the fire where they burn to a cinder together with all traces of […]

Only within such an intimate relationship with God where you and I can really grow, where we can learn and become more like Jesus. In an intimate relationship with God, 10You don’t need a […]

God’s truth or not

Each of us has a personal responsibility to test whether the information we hear and see fits within God’s truth. So many people spread their own understanding of the Bible as the only correct way of understanding. What is the truth and who is missing the point? The driver at the garage where I have […]

Pushing against the gate

We’ve been living in this house for 10 years and we really like living here. The house has a flat roof with concealed guttering (the gutters are hidden behind the facia boards to make the house look prettier). But those concealed gutters is a nasty story. A friend of mine says the gutters are so […]

Richest Treasures

Every day we see shiny treasures being advertised on television, on billboards along the road, and in catalogues left in our mail boxes. Shiny, expensive diamonds in rings and necklaces looking so very appealing. Many people are ready and eager to collect treasures in safes. Women especially love it. It reminds of the time when […]
