Life Lessons

Every day we are bombarded with news from our communities, and around the world. Disasters, tragedies, wars, environmental issues, politics, corporate scandals, social and lifestyle issues, winners and losers. The media has touched every part of our lives – feeding us the same information on world events and happenings – creating a bond shared among citizens of this planet. This Bible based site draws Life Lessons from the news.

 

Can we learn deeper ‘life’ lessons from the same stories splashed across the news? Every couple of weeks, a new story is added to this section. Why would we add a piece of news here? We hope that by comparing and contrasting parts of the story to the spiritual side of your life, you will dig deeper, and think about your own personal relationship with God.

 

If the life lesson drawn from the story conflicts with your thinking, please email and let us know. If the story has raised a question or concern in your mind, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us personally.

By On July 11, 2018

Some think of it as an old television series from the 80’s starring Michael Landon. Others know Highway to Heaven as a hymn and love its lyrics. There may be some who confuse the title with Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven while others can’t help thinking of the contrast with AC/DC’s big, but sad song Highway to Hell.  But if you ever visit the west…

Infrastructure Bridges are Critical – The Spiritual Connection

By On March 21, 2018

Infrastructure spending is a big-ticket item for governments. Public transit, airports, roads, bridges, tunnels, sewers, dams and much, much more, fall under the infrastructure umbrella. Infrastructure is the framework – the facilities and systems used and taken-for-granted everyday by people in a functioning society. Cash-strapped, in-debt governments often post-pone spending on long-term, non-glamourous infrastructure projects – favouring heart-throb projects, that…

Masters of Disguise

By On December 22, 2017

We have so many layers. Like peeling an onion, someone has said. We can be piously sweet, smiling and gregarious. We can be connivingly sneaky, self-serving and mean. We can be ever-so-clean; and then, disgustingly filthy. In our desire to be respected and accepted, we publicly show our better side. Masters of disguise we truly are. Years ago, kids once…
