Today’s Scripture

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.”

(Colossians 3:23, NIV)

Life in a Fishbowl

A pastor’s life has been described as “a life in a fishbowl.” Everyone is watching to see how you will react in any given situation. But really, that’s true of all of us. Whether you realize it or not, people are watching you. They watch how you dress, how you take care of your home, how you work, and how you treat other people. The Scripture talks about believers representing God here on the earth.

We are Christ’s ambassadors. If we’re to represent God properly, we should do it with joy, with enthusiasm, with a smile. People of faith are supposed to be the lights of the world. Some who lack faith may not want to listen to what we believe, but they certainly watch how we live. We are living epistles read by all men. Some may not read the Bible, but they’re reading our lives. As the saying goes, “Preach at all times; use words only when necessary.”

A Prayer for Today

“God, as Your child, I am called to be a good example in the world. My decisions, my words, and my actions should reflect my commitment to living a life of excellence. I love that I am Your ambassador! Thank you for your confidence in me. In Jesus’ name – Amen”

    • Last Saturday, I hooked up with an Indian chick in Zambia. For those who looking for taste change. The girl was standing around Mayela night Club in skimpy dress. I stopped my car next to her and she lifted her skirt to show me what she offering. Negotiated for a 100 kwacha for short time.

      Interestingly she forgot her phone in my car. And guess what. Its a non working old styled phone. Tried some contact numbers which don’t seem to be Zambian, tells me that she is likely a foreigner.

      Also I have managed to get her Skype details (no she did not give me). I can pass on if someone is interested.
