Living love is not always that easy

I had to drop someone off at the airport. On the way there I saw the N2 was quite congested and decided to take the Stellenbosch Arterial instead. The traffic ran fluently through a few suburbs, but then it also came to a stop.  I turned up the music, but the many taxis whizzing by […]

Sow love, not war

Before I started my quiet time one morning, I noticed a news report from an African country whose government had been overthrown again. Army rebels slipped in during the night and took over the country. The one guy’s commentary: “Africa’s democracy in action. The guy with the biggest gun is in charge.”  That’s not God’s […]

Sacrificial love jacket

The Bible says: 17 Love your spiritual family. This is one of the easier assignments in the Bible, or so I thought at first, until I gave it a bit more thought. At the business, we had to provide a special window for a school. These were very unique windows and not part of our […]

Overflowing love for stray dogs

I saw a picture of a dog and you could just tell that dog was happy. It wasn’t an expensive, purebred dog. When you ask the people what breed he is, they say he’s a genuine dog, because his mother and father were both dogs. They picked up the dog as a stray. Very neglected. […]

No longer homeless

In 2015, I received the first email from Andy. Life has treated him rough. It chewed him up and spit him out on the streets. Yes, he lives on the streets. He is a homeless person. Every now and then we talk. He often gives me a glimpse into a world completely unfamiliar to me. […]

Just one good deed per day

Alida (not her real name) made me a little embarrassed by her way of living love and caring. She says: We have to make the will of God part of our lives in a practical way. If your neighbour, and yes, even your enemy, are hungry, give them bread. Or if they are thirsty, give […]

Buying on Gumtree sight unseen

I am an ardent Gumtree fan. For those of you who don’t know, it’s an online platform where you can buy and sell things. I’ve bought and sold many things on Gumtree. The drone that we use to record material for our YouTube sermons had to be replaced. We then received a substantial donation from […]

Sinful, more sinful, most sinful?

We all sin. We all have a problem. We all have a little room somewhere we don’t want to show others. How do I know that? Because Adam and Eve and the serpent are to blame for what they did right there at the beginning in the Garden of Eden. Disobedience, a desire to know […]

Judging a book by its cover

Lonzo Green was a well-known American country singer. One day, he visited the house of his cousin, Jim. Obviously, like any teenager would be, Jim’s friends were very excited to meet such a well-known singer. Jim’s parents didn’t allow one of his friends to come inside the house, since he was from the wrong side […]
