Don’t be selfish

One of the amazing ironies of life is, everybody wants the best but few want to give out their best. Many want to be well treated but few want to treat others well. Many want to be loved genuinely and be trusted but few…

The Choice is yours

Life may offer us great opportunities to succeed or to fail but the choice is unquestionably ours. Situations, people and the environment can influence us but the choice is still ours. Our place, position and status in life are hugely hinged on the choices…

God still loves and care….
