The Door

Opening a Door

In a country at war, there was a king who tormented his captives.

Instead of killing them, the king led them to a room where a group of archers waited at one side opposite a huge iron door. Around the door hung skulls covered in blood.

In this room, the king gave them two options:

– You can choose to die by my archers’ arrows or go through that door.

Everybody chose death by the archers.

At the end of the war, a soldier who loyally served the king, said:

– Your majesty, can I ask you a question?

– Yes, soldier.

– What is behind that scary door?

– Go and see for yourself.

At first he was scared, but trusting in the king, he slowly opened the door and when he did so, rays of sunshine lit up the room.

The door lead out of the prison and into freedom.

Amazed, the soldier looked at the king, who said:

– I gave them a choice, but rather than risking opening the door, they chose to die.

Well, how often have we decided not to open a door or chosen not to pass through one, afraid of risking everything?

In today’s world, many people haven’t found freedom yet and it’s exactly for that reason: FEAR. Fear of not being successful, fear of what others might think, fear of failure. And with that, they remain stagnant, they remain still in time and completely tangled up in their problems.

We should act differently, but many times, we act exactly the same.

How many people are influenced by the bias media reports satan imposes and are afraid to come through The Door (Jesus) to find a better life.
I am the door. If anyone enters through Me, he will be saved and will go in and out and find pasture.
John 10:9 MEV

But those who are suffering, the ones who have nothing to lose, seek and conquer their freedom with a bold faith.

Several excuses are always less convincing than one.

2018 Considerations

Never depend on single income. Make investment to create a second income.
If you buy things you do not need, soon you will have to sell things you need.
Do not save what is left after spending, but spend what is left after saving.
Never test the depth of a river with both feet.
Do not put all eggs in one basket.
Honesty is a very expensive gift. Do not expect it from cheap people.
7. Past is a waste paper, present is a newspaper, and future is a question paper. Come out of your past, control the present, and secure the future.
8. When bad things happen in your life, you have three choices. You can either let it define you, let it destroy you or you can let it strengthen you.
9. Our eyes are in the front because it is more important to look ahead than to look backwards.
10. We use pencil when we were young, but now we use pens. Do you know why? Because mistakes in childhood can easily be erased, unlike mistakes made in Adulthood.

Wishing you a prosperous 2018. It’s your choice to make a difference in your life. Above all look up to God Almighty for without Him we are nothing.

Gossip inflicts wounds on 3 parties: The one spoken of, the one spoken to, and the one speaking. The tongue has the power of life and death, use it wisely.

Giving & Kindness


Business is business and kindness is something else altogether.

Nothing is wrong with either, it’s just important to recognize the difference.

Gift or Curse? 

A gift can often be a curse. 

Give someone wings and they may fly too close to the sun;

Give them the power of prophecy and they may live in fear of the future;

Give them the greatest gifts of all, powers beyond imagination, and they may think that they are meant to rule the world.
