    Day 11: Faith, Unfeigned #28DayChallenge

    Today, I want to share a few thoughts on faith, particularly in connection with the adjective “unfeigned” as used in the King James Version of the Bible. If you use more modern versions such as the NKJV or NIV, the word will likely be rendered “sincere” or “genuine”. In the first chapters of both his […]

    Day 10: Celebrity, Unpacked #28DayChallenge

    When I was a child, I wanted to be famous and popular. I was never quite sure of what I’d be known for. But I wanted to be well-known and much loved and highly respected by many people. Although that desire is not something I now pay attention to, I do not trust that it […]

    Day 9: Coffee, Black #28DayChallenge

    Day 7: The Sabbath #28DayChallenge

    Every seven days, we begin a “new” week. Our seven-day week usually includes 5 or 6 days of work and 1 or 2 days of rest. If you are unlucky, you have to work round the week and don’t have one day of the week set apart for rest. Hopefully, you are still able to […]

    Day 6: The Teacher #28DayChallenge

    I love to teach. I have a natural inclination to it, and I think being a teacher in any form, is the greatest way to shape people. Since I enjoyed the privilege of having great teachers simplify concepts and make them relatable for me, I also feel like I owe it to others to help […]

    Day 5: The Learner #28DayChallenge

    Against all odds, I made it to Day 5 of my 28-Day Writing Challenge. I’d have thought it too early to start getting tired or blank, but I must admit I’ve felt that way today, to the point of wondering why I’m even doing this. As the saying goes in local Nigerian parlance: “Who send […]
