  The story of Kevin Rene Richardson, a South African, who is better known as “Lion whisperers,” has never stopped to amaze animal behaviourists and wildlife experts. I remember how I held Richardson in awe, the first time I watched him on DSTV’s Nat Geo Wild station in the midst of a Pride of Lions in a forest.

Where is honour in marriage?

T he word ‘Honour’ according to dictionary refers to something that is morally right, has respect, honesty, dignity and pride.   If we agree that God is honourable and that everything he created is good, then, we must admit that marriage, (his creation) is an honourable thing.   Marriage is not man’s idea.

Who will save us from ourselves?

Not too long ago in a piece titled: “We versus them!” I pointed out how the selfishness of most of us has played a big role in the kind of country we have now found ourselves living in. While many of us cast envious eyes at other countries and marvel at how much better off their citizens are, we often forget to also realise that the countries we crave to be like were not made by people from others climes; but rather by the citizens themselves who, although are ready…

Husband as God’s wife

To understand this piece if you are a Christian husband to a Christian wife, you need to understand God’s attitude and perception about you. “…for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God” (Exodus 20:5).
