69 Truths You Will NEVER Hear About Roman Crucifixion!!!

1. Crucifixion was invented by the Persians in 300 BC, and perfected by the Romans in 100 BC.

2. It is the most painful death ever invented by man and is where we get our term “excruciating.”

3. It was reserved primarily for the most vicious of male criminals.

4. Jesus refused the anesthetic wine which was offered to Him by the Roman soldiers because of His promise in Matthew 26: 29, “But I say to you, I will not drink of this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in My Father’s kingdom.”

Dear God,

Several times i sit and wonder, about the fragility of human allegiance. How often a times i wonder, God, why did you invent the word friend? Who truly is a friend? Who can you rely on? Who truly has your back covered?

You know God a times, i ask myself, if i feel this way, how do you feel, when we let you down, when we disappoint you and do things worthy of your instant anger and indignation. You are merciful of Lord, you are!

When people you look up to, show you they are not worthy to be looked up to… God what will you do?

When people preach a message, but they don’t live up to the message, what do you do o God?

When people you trust, make boast about how they can harness you, and you know within you, that if they see the unharnessed part of you, their lyrics will change, what will you do Lord?

What will you do, Lord, when you are trying to nurture, but the people you are to work together seems only interested in what profits them, what do you do Lord, what do you do??

When people honestly deceive themselves and choose to see what they choose to see and hear what they choose to hear, what do you do Lord?

Am reminded of Whitney Houston’s song, “I look to you” and all i can do is sing it along and meditate on your words, in Psalm 61:2.

You Are Unemployable Because…

Have you ever sat down to ask yourself this question? Ok, lets pause for a moment if you are reading this and you have been hunting for a job for a while now. How unemployable are you?

Am sure you have never given it much serious thought right? That’s one of the reasons why you are not unemployable. Now don’t get me wrong or conclude that am following the norms and newspaper reports. Be it far from it. Follow me on this “short” journey.

We have different people in the job hunting market. University Graduates, Doctorate graduates, different school drop-outs, “Job drop-outs”, “wrong job drop outs” and etc. And the singular question all these people ask is “Why me?”

Now, am not going to bore you with all the statistical details of unemployment and why youths are not employed. The information is on the open market for all and with Election coming up next month, promise galore on the job opportunities to be provided. But we ar yet to see the actionable plans to that effect save from one candidate and it’s yet to be explicitly clear.

Long Walk Ahead

“May your road be rough!” Those were the words of a man i respect so highly, in person of the foremost educationalist, the late Dr. Tai Solarin. Back then in Mayflower School, we use to think the man was nuts for cursing us in such manner. But years have passed, we have grown wiser and come to see the wisdom and deep insight in those words of his and seen the practical reality in our lives…in my life.
