Work as the light where you work

When I visited England as a young man, South Africans were highly in demand. If a South African applied for work, you had a good chance to get the job. Because South Africans were hardworking. They could do many things and they weren’t afraid to do the work the Pommies looked down on. The young […]

Social network thieves

Social networks are addictive. Due to the nature of our ministry I must constantly make sure that the posts on the various social network platforms have gone through. But then I noticed that I don’t only check whether our posts have landed. I quickly scroll through the news feeds to what fresh news there are. […]

Peace and joy at work

We spend the biggest part of the day at work. The place where you work, the people who work with you, the people you work for, have a significant impact on you. What do you look like when you get home after a bad day at work? Your mood is lower than your feet and […]

A friend was telling me about some major projects his children were working on. He described the challenges the young men were facing. A big company has been holding back a heap of money due to them for two months. This gives me the heebie jeebies, because I can still remember from my days in […]

Inhabit, cultivate and protect

What do people think of me? What do people think of you? Immediately I can hear people say that it doesn’t matter what other people think of them. They don’t live for other people. That might be right. We cannot allow what other people think of us determine how we live our lives. Our foundation […]

Your reward is coming

It is said that a Christian’s benefits are out of this world. And it’s true! Our reward comes in life hereafter. So, when we work, we mustn’t work for our earthly bosses. They’re only human and can disappoint us. We must work for our Heavenly Father. He will never let us down. He will give […]
