Be generous: invest in acts of charity.

Charity yields high returns.

Don’t hoard your goods; spread them around.

Be a blessing to others. This could be your last night.

when the clouds are full of water, it rains.

when the wind blows down a tree, it lies where it falls.

Don’t sit there watching the wind. Do your own work.

Don’t stare at the clouds. Get on with your life.

Just as you’ll never understand

the mystery at work in all that God does.

Go to work in the morning and stick to it until evening without watching the clock.

You never know from the moment to moment

how your work will turn out in the end.

— Ecclesiastes 11: 1 - 6

Add to life.

You were put on earth to make a contribution. You weren't created just to consume resources- to eat, breathe and take up space. God designed you to make a difference with your life ... You were created to add to life on Earth, not just take from it. - Rick Warren Mayowa: This resonates so deeply with my mantra that you matter and what you do matters. Don't just come, live like you have nothing to offer the world. Every single soul has something to offer the world because God is a calculating and wise God who didn't send you here ...

Nothing that happens in your life is insignificant. God uses all of it to mold you for your ministry to others and shape you for your service to him. ~ Rick Warren Notes from Mayowa: This includes the 'mistakes' you have made. The challenges you have faced. The vomit that you felt yourself constantly going back to. If it didn't happen to you, how will you really be able to help others that it is happening to now? How will you be able to advice others before they make the mistakes you did. The truth is, people are more willing to ...

Temptation begins by capturing your attention. What gets your attention arouses your emotions. Then your emotions activate your behaviour, and you act on what you felt. The more you focus on 'I don't want to do this', the stronger it draws you into its web. ~ Rick Warren

While your relationship to Christ is personal, God never intends for it to be private ... We discover our role in life through our relationships with others. The church is so significant that Jesus died on the cross for it. ~ Rick Warren Notes from Mayowa: Many times, I have been told by some people that I have tried to convince to go to church that they do not need to be in church before they can fellowship with God. Very true. You can be in church and not have a personal experience with God. I don't think God specified in ...

You know you're surrendered to God when you rely on God to work things out instead of trying to manipulate others, force your agenda, and control the situation. You let go and let God work. ~ Rick Warren Notes from Mayowa: Total surrendering is recognising Gods ability and yet telling him to let his purpose be done even if you might have to suffer or lose something. Jesus by surrendering himself showed God's purpose is greater than his pain and want and that is an ultimate showcase of love. He loved God enough to say "where you go, I will go". ...

God does not owe you an explanation or a reason for everything be asked you to do. Understanding can wait, but obedience can't .... You will never understand some commands until you obey them first. Obedience unlocks understanding. ~ Rick Warren
