Gimmicks

Have you ever confronted yourself with this question: “Why is Christianity at such a low ebb when it comes to Bible knowledge?” It is … and I’m sure you will agree with me. By lack of Bible knowledge, I am not talking about where to find a Book of the Bible, or what the Old […]

Darkness and Death

If living with COVID-19 is not sufficient, we have to live with power outages due to Eskom’s load shedding program. We have absolutely no clue where we’re going with the Coronavirus. No one knows what is happening, as it has returned in a second wave, seemingly more aggressive than the first. Will the vaccine work? […]

The Fling

I travelled through to Benoni for a church council meeting this morning. The roads are free flowing on a weekend, so the journey was easy and enjoyable. Yet, being so quiet, some drivers of powerful cars must have thought the open highway is license to speed. I was doing 120 kph, and these cars sped […]

On the Death Penalty

How peaceful is your neighbourhood? Ours seems to be rather quiet, with few crime incidents since the gate motor thief has been caught. The street is rather short, with a total of ten houses on either side of the road. Yes we have people who do not live in the street walking and driving the […]

Spiritual Garbage

This morning I went for an 8.8km walk. I went through financially lower middle class, middle class and upper middle class areas. The reason I mention this is because these are people who will be paying rates and taxes and other amenities. Many of the pavements are cemented, though most are broken and damaged through […]

On Data

We have had our electric fence checked a few times over the last year because as soon as it rains, the alarm is triggered. This normally happens at night when we are sleeping. It’s great to have this facility, but when it malfunctions it defeats its intended purpose. Today the technicians came to repair a […]

Irritation and Ointment

The grass was rather long before I cut it on Friday. It was almost two weeks since the last cut and during that period it rained quite a bit. In Pretoria, we have summer rains, and together with the warmer temperatures, we can expect all plant life, trees and grass to grow faster. It is […]

Judging Yourself

Whilst on the “garden route” yesterday at our house, we noticed two or three bats hanging from the rafters where the lounge wall meets the chimney. The natural response is to get rid of the bats … so I googled to learn what to do. The common bat may eat up to 600 mosquitoes or […]
