At the core, man is religious. To think of any man who is not religious in the sense that he does not worship is as absurd as trying to think of a non-thinking man. To be human is to automatically think, for not think is unthinkable. And as thinking is basic to humanity, so is worshiping. Every man is a worshiper. The question is who or what they are worshiping. God? A tree? Science? Reason?

When the Godly Grow Weary

Brother Habakkuk is a tired man. He ministers during the ‘death throes’ of the nation of Judah that has repeatedly refused to repent. He has lived righteously and sought to engage his generation with God’s message but seems to see no fruit. He is weary, frustrated, and discouraged. So Habakkuk decides to ask God questions, in chapter 1, many questions which really are one: why is God silent when the wicked devour the righteous? (1:2,13). Why?

Fascinated by Beauty

Ancient architecture and buildings have a way of communicating beauty to me, transporting me from the material world, to somewhere beyond the X-Y-Z planes. These sorts of structures seem so rare today, and more so in such a country as Uganda. This is so especially, given the fact that most Ugandans build primarily for shelter, and would be happy to spend as less as possible to get a roof over their head. Barely do people here build for beauty.

Focused on Eternity

For the Lord knows the way of the righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. Psalm 1:6

There is a certainty with which the judgement of the wicked is fixed. Those who have found refuge in Christ should be aware of this, lest they fret and are anxious when they see the wicked prosper in their schemes.

Be grateful

I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. Psalm 3:5

Many of us are not daily grateful for the things we have in life. We awake daily, go about our business, breathe and bathe with no acknowledgement whatsoever of the Lord who sustains us.
