When many of us were just kids in the 70s we lived a happy life without many of these gadgets available in the market today.

Parents worked only during the day and looked after the financial matters with whatever they earned .They didn’t even think of as to how they would look after so many children with so low earning because abundant grace surrounded their lives.

Their faith carried them through the storms of life as they tried their best.Their focus was to have honest children,healthy children.

They were blessed with what they required and today we are blessed with more than what we require and so we are struggling with a single child.We are not happy with our modern lives.

It is very difficult to train a child to be God fearing because of the menace of technology.

The world is well equipped with all that one requires to be pious or impious.A boy or a girl has the option to have a Bible app in his device or a special pornography app or gaming app.

The question is ;what is he/she going to choose ?Death or life?I,as a father of an adult son has to be cautious with my activities .

I believe that what my son is going to be in future depends on my activities.

But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone hung around your neck.-Mark 9:42

The above verse clearly tells us that the loving creator is not happy with his creation.He is condemning those who are a hindrance to the piety of innocent people.

The materialistic world is simply alluring for us and its beauty and attraction is like the forbidden fruit of the garden of Eden .

The happiness of the creator only assures us of a happy and prosperous life.If I don’t allow the innocent grown up people to be honest and pious then I make the creator unhappy hence I become the cause of my sadness.If I spoil the children of others then certainly someone will spoil my son.

So don’t allow the world to corrupt you .Stay away from the temptations of life .A life of sin is a warning of sudden death.Covid is nothing but our own creation for our destruction by legalizing sins .

Stay pure like snow and you will be able to visit hell like a tourist and return home in time .The devil fears an honest and chaste person .

I could not post on Sunday as a good neighbour of mine a strong ,stout and healthy man died of Covid.

Thank you very much for your support and prayers.Take care.



    1. Yes, to some extent and that’s because of wide open eyes to see all that is happening around me their causes and consequences. Thank you very much for reading and taking the time to share your invaluable views. Take care. πŸ™πŸŒΈπŸ˜Š


  1. Excellent points to remember and live by. I surely concur with your memories of recent past, my mother never worried about feeding 4 kids – and she wanted more! Technology and materialism are the poor substitutes for meaningful relationships with our family, our neighbors and with our God.
    Not sure what you mean about Covid being “our own creation”. Because it was made in a laboratory?
    Anyway brother, its good to hear from you and read this thought provoking post. Thank you!

    1. Thank you very much dear sister for reading and also for sharing your views. ‘Covid being our own creation’ perhaps it’s created in the lab but if we read psalm Chapter 41 verses 1,2 and 3 which says “Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the Lord delivers them in times of trouble. The Lord protects and preserves them -they are counted among the blessed in the land -he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.
      The Lord sustains them on their sickbed
      and restores them from their bed of illness.
      I hope you can understand what I mean by it. Take care. πŸ™

      1. Yes dear sister, you will certainly understand the fact that when the Lord is our shield and assurance nothing can defeat us and if we are defeated then it’s our own creation, isn’t it?What do you say? πŸ™

  2. The world indeed is very alluring. And I love that comparison you did when Adam and Eve was allired by the fruit from the Tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

    As a parent, it has been my prayer to be able to train my children to love God and love righteousness. With social media being so powerful, I pray my children will choose what is godly from all different things that they see, hear, and even experience.

    1. Don’t worry I shall pray for you and above all the Lord loves children so he will ever guide our children because we rely only on him for our safety and security.Thank you very much for sharing your invaluable views.Take care.πŸŒΉπŸ˜ŠπŸ™


  3. I loved the title of this post – it is a reminder that needs repetition to keep living it. Indeed the world looks very unhappy in this modern world, lost in versions of happiness that doesn’t seem to stick. I have been unclear if I even have the capacity to bring the idea of Faith in its right version to my sons. So I simply resort to live in integrity with values of authenticity, and trust they will find their way.

    1. Yes,fortunate are those who can win this particular battle in life.This is the greatest challenge for me in life because all the other professions on this earth are achievable but being a man/woman of chastity is a true jem on earth and in heaven .I believe that if we can have control over all our weaknesses then we can walk on water,we can visit our dead relatives and inquire about their whereabouts .We can command a deadly disease to depart from an ailing person.We can summon the soul of a dead person to the honourable court to identify the criminal and so many other things.I could describe an unknown place or location of a person’s house and the surroundings perfectly with wide open eyes .I haven’t tried it for almost two years. Since then I have sinned more so I don’t know whether I still have that power or not.Thank you for sharing your views.Take care.πŸŒΉπŸ˜ŠπŸ™
