As the Most Religious Place On Earth, Africa Is On Fire for God


 Researchers have discovered the most religious place on earth: The area between the Sahara Desert and the southern tip of Africa.

Here Christianity, and to a lesser extent Islam, are attracting followers in numbers not seen in more than 100 years.
Soweto. Most people will remember this place for the role it played in the struggle against racial segregation. Twenty years after the end of apartheid, inside South Africa's biggest black township, another image is emerging.


Soweto is on fire for God.
 "People come here and they really sense that they've had an encounter with God," said Pastor Mosa Sono of Grace Bible Church in Soweto.

'Hungry for God'
Grace Bible Church is where it's happening. The church began in 1983 with a handful of people. It now has more than 15,000 members and 11 satellite churches across South Africa.
It is by far the largest church in Soweto.

"God said if you seek me you will find me, if you long for me, if you seek me with all you heart," Sono said. "I think Africa is very hungry for God."
Africa -- Most Religious Place on Earth
The proof is in the numbers. For four months, researchers crisscrossed South Africa and 18 sub-Saharan African nations. They interviewed more than 25,000 people face to face in 60 different languages.

What did they discover?
"Well, clearly the most religious place on earth," Luis Lugo, the director of the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, said.
Lugo's team found that people who live south of the Sahara Desert and stretching to the tip of Africa are seeking after God unlike in any other region of the world, including Europe and the United States.

Religion is Very Important
The overwhelming majority of those here said religion is very important to them. Most people believe in one God and in heaven and hell. They say the Bible is the literal Word of God. A vast number believe Jesus will return in their lifetime.
"From the importance of religion in people's lives, to attendance at religious services, to belief in God, to prayer, you name it, one after another Africa ranks at the highest level in terms of global comparisons," Lugo said.

Growth of Christianity, Islam
Lugo said Christianity, in particular, is exploding. In 1900 there were 7 million Christians in sub-Saharan Africa. That number is up 70 times today to a staggering 470 million. Christians now account for 60 percent of the population.
That growth by any global comparison or historical comparison has to be one of the most rapid religious transformations in the history of Christianity in the last 2,000 years.
Muslims have also seen a big rise in their numbers - from 11 million in 1900 to some 234 million in 2010.

Traditional Beliefs Still Strong
But that is not to say that the indigenous African beliefs are not being practiced today on the continent. In fact, the survey found that half of the people questioned in South Africa believed that sacrifices to the ancestors, and even spirits, can protect people from harm.
The Pew survey also shows that despite the dominance of Christianity and Islam, traditional African religious beliefs haven't diminished.
CBN News came across a group of traditional faith healers preparing for a ceremony.
"We believe that God can talk to us through our ancestors," one village witch doctor said. "There are many people, especially in the rural villages, who hold fast to these and other practices."

Fruits of Mission Work
Nonetheless, missionary Jacques Vernaud could never have imagined today's phenomenal growth of Christianity.
Born in the central African nation of Gabon to Swiss parents, Vernaud said he was 20-years-old when he first felt a calling from God to be a missionary to Africa.
"And I spent many years traveling by foot hundreds of miles through the big jungles, the rain forest, to reach some remote villages, small villages, 20 people and 30 people," Vernaud recalled. "In those days I never preached before big congregations."
Fifty-seven years later, he leads one of the largest churches in the Democratic Republic of Congo. He has 60 other churches around the country.
"We are not saved through religion; we are saved through a person, Jesus Christ the Savior, and in obeying the Word of God," he said. Vernaud pastors La Bourne Church in the capital city of Kinshasa. Like his fellow pastor in Soweto, Vernaud said he bears witness to the power of God in people's lives.
"God is doing something special for Africa in our days," he said.0


Africans Most Optimistic
Despite the crushing poverty, hunger, disease and famine that millions of Africans face each day, researchers discovered that the people living in this region rank the highest in the world in terms of their optimistic outlook.
"Africans sometimes have been described as incurably religious. One can also say they are incurably optimistic," Lugo said.

Key Survey Findings
1Large numbers of people have witnessed or experienced a divine healing.
2Many speak in tongues and have received divine prophecies.
3A majority of Christians want the Bible as the official law of the land.
4And they are equally committed to seeing their political leaders reflect those Biblical values.

Back in Soweto, Pastor Mosa Sono is thrilled that Africa is on the leading edge of Christianity's growth worldwide. For years, he's been calling on the men and women of his church to take up the mantle of carrying the banner of Christ to the ends of the earth. "We come from a history where things were done for us," Sono said. "People came to us, to tell us about Christ. We were their so-called 'dark continent.' But we realize history changes and so we intentionally and proactively talk about taking the Gospel to other parts of the world."
That zeal is yet another sign, researchers say, of Africa's dynamism and spiritual vitality.

COULD HAROLD CAMPING BE SUED?


HAROLD CAMPING

Family Radio has solicited millions from donors over the years and reportedly spent over $100 million on advertising for the May 21 Judgment Day.But now that the "guaranteed" rapture didn't happen,

 people are wondering: Can Harold Camping or Family Radio be sued? Did they do anything illegal in soliciting donations based on the rapture prediction? And do donors have legal ground to sue the discredited prophet?

Probably not, says an executive of Charity Navigator, which evaluates over 5,500 of America's largest charities. The charity evaluator rated Family Radio as a 4-star charity, the highest possible ranking.
Sandra Miniutti, vice president of Charity Navigator, told The Christian Post she doesn’t think that Family Radio committed any wrongdoing, from a financial standpoint.
"They believed that the rapture was going to happen. I don't think they did anything illegal," Miniutti said Tuesday.
She said Charity Navigator doesn't evaluate a non-profit's mission, only its financial performance in the spending on its program, administration, fundraising, and efficiency in fundraising.

"We rate charities based on their financial performance. We don't make subjective assessments on the value of their mission. We just look on their financial performance," said Miniutti.
Based on her knowledge so far, Family Radio has used its donations where it was intended, on billboards and on public relations campaigns advertising the May 21 Judgment Day.
The Christian Post learned that Harold Camping spent around $100 million to advertise his May 21 end times prediction, according to Matt Tuter, Family Radio’s international projects manager.
Tuter told The Christian Post that most of the money did not come from donations, but from the sale of property – more specifically, KFTL television and an FM station.
"My understanding is that they were soliciting money to help people understand the word of God," commented Miniutti. "They spent it on what they intended to spend it on."
"Donors would only have a recourse if the charity was soliciting for one thing but spent it on something else."Tuter also told CP that most of the staff at Family Radio, including himself, are not followers of Camping and do not believe in his Judgment Day predictions.
Miniutti acknowledged, "It's unethical if people doing soliciting didn't believe that the rapture wasn't going to happen in the first place."
However, Miniutti pointed out that donors should also do their due diligence in checking out charities' overall health before giving money."We believe that donors should check three things: financial performance, the charity's transparency and what the charity's actual results are, whether it's lasting change in the world," she said.
Charity Navigator currently doesn't evaluate a charity's transparency or results but will in the near future, she added.
When Miniutti was asked whether "false advertising" of the rapture could provide legal grounds for a lawsuit against Family Radio, she said a lawyer would better answer that question.
But she did suggest that if Family Radio got away with Camping's 1994 Judgment Day prediction, there is no reason they couldn't do the same in 2011."If it's legal in ‘94, it's probably legal again."
On Monday, in his first public address since the failed rapture, Camping touted Family Radio’s efficiency and honesty when it comes to money.
“We’re not in the business for money,” he said, stressing that he does not receive any compensation.
He said the contributions the organization receives are all directed toward one purpose: to get the Gospel out. “Every nickel has been spent as fairly as possible, as efficiently as possible,” he maintained.
Commenting on some of his followers and other listeners who spent their life savings to advertise Camping’s Judgment Day prediction or quit their jobs, he said the organization never advised them on financial matters and he refused to take any responsibility for their current situations.

Talent with the anointing – John Kagaruki

John Kagaruki
We often confuse talent with the anointing when it comes to public display of worship as we often judge by what we see on the outside. On these days of High Technology, glamour and glitz, it’s easy to fall into Props trap and be carried away by technically brilliant performance without realizing where the origins of that expression are from. We have come to enjoy “the moving heads” (lighting fixtures) rather than the moving of the Hearts.

We cheer and applaud technical excellence rather than the manifestation of God’s Presence as was witnessed in the launch of Solomon’s Temple (2Chronicles 5:13-14). We get offended when some one sings or Play off key but we cannot detect when we are spiritually of key!! What is the missing link? As a result many of our worship leaders turned out to be cheer leaders, and we are accepting this as the way things should be.

Pastor Daniel kulola Kuhudumu Nchini Scotland


Pastor Daniel kulola jumapili ijayo anatarajia kuhudumu Neno la Mungu Katika nchi ya Scotland. Hii ni moja kati yahuduma ambazo amekuwa akizifanya kwa takribani mwezi mzima sasa akiwa barani Ulaya..Tunaamini kuwa Mungu atazidi kuntumia yeye pamopja na Mkewe kwa namna ya Tofauti kwa utukufu wake.

Pastor Daniel kulola na mkewe wakiwa katika huduma katika kanisa la Shirley Jijini Birmingham

Omba mvua wakati wa Masika


Uonapo amani kama shwari na usipojua nini kinaumbika katikati ya amani hiyo kwa ajili ya kesho hupelekea kurelax na kuona kila kitu kiko sawa bin sawia.Luka 10:1 Wakati wanafunzi wa kristo walipokuja kwake kwa furaha wakisema Rabi mpaka mapepo yanatutii,ndipo Kristo aliwajibu kwa hekima ya ajabu kulingana na kile alichokua akikiona akasema, Nmemuona shetani akianguka toka juu mpaka chini kama umeme.Maadamu alishuka kama umeme na wao wasijue baada ya kushindwa kwake alikaa vipi akijipanga mara ya pili, ndipo Biblia inatuambia wazi aliporudi uwanjani toka huko alikokuwa ameshuka Petro alishindwa kuhimili ile vita, hata akamkana Masia mara tatu, na Yuda akaishia kumkabidhi Masia mikononi mwa askari wa Pilato.


Uwezo wa kuiona vita yetu kesho pindi unapokua mdogo, ni rahisi sana kutotumia vizuri raslimali tulizonazo leo kwa maana ya mazingira, fedha, muda, cheo, ndugu, marafiki,nk. Wakati kijana baada ya kuhitimu masomo yake na kupata kazi mjini anaweza asione umuhimu wake na badala yake nafasi aliyopata ya kukaa mjini,akaona ni jambo la kawaida tu hivyo tofauti na mshahara anaweza asitengeneze kipato kingine nje ya mshahara wakati mjini nafasi ni nyingi za kufanya hivyo, na mara nyingine anaweza hata asijiendeleze kimasomo kwa kua anavijisababu vilivyomfanya ashindwe kuwaza nje ja ukuta huo. Akili hukaa sawa siku akijikuta kahamishiwa kisiwani Pemba kikazi ndipo anagundua kuwa wakati wa masika hakuutumia vizuri kupanda kwa ajili ya hakiba yake ya keshokutwa.

Wakristo wengi leo ni waombaji wazuri pindi waingiapo matatani, wakati mambo yanaonekana yako shwari huwezi wasikia wakifunga na kuomba ila subiri tatizo litokee ni mabingwa wakushandalai!!. Huwezi wakuta watanzania leo wakimshukuru Mungu kwa amani iliyopo au hali ya chakula iliyopo, ila subiri vyote vipae ndipo tunakutana viwanja vya Jangwani kumsihi Mungu alete hali ya hewa nzuri kwa kilimo au kurejeza amani. Ni nadra sana kumkuta mwanafunzi anasoma kabla test haijatangazwa, na unaweza sikia ooh mimi nikisoma kabla ya test sielewi na hata nikielewa baada ya siku mbili nasahau, ha haaaaa subiri Lecturer atangaze Test uone mahudhurio ya library yanavyokua makubwa na Group discussions zinavyojaa raia!!!.


Kwenye “Wafalme wa Pili” tunaona maisha ya Elisha chini ya Eliya. Umakini wa Elisha katika kujifunza chini ya Eliya ulimfanya Elisha kutotetereka hata baada ya Eliya kuondoka. Kila hatua aliyokuwa akiichukua Eliya lilikuwa ni darasa tosha kwa Elisha. Kwa kuwa ndio ulikuwa wakati wa Masika kwa Elisha, hivyo hakuthubutu kuuchezea alijifunza kila kitu, matokeo yake Elisha alipoingia katika utendaji jamii haikumtofautisha na Eliya.

Unaweza ukapata fursa ya kukaa na dhahabu mikononi mwako kisha usione umuhimu wake mpaka itakapoondoka. Marafiki ulionao, wafanyakazi wenzio, watumishi wa Mungu wanaokuzunguka, ujana, wazazi, na vinginevyo vingi  hizi ni fursa tosha ndio maana Mungu akaviweka karibu nawe. Usipojua kuwatumia kipindi hicho ulichowekwa pamoja nao itakugharimu hapo mbele kwani hutokaa nao Milele, na uko nao kwa kipindi maalumu kwa siku, miezi na miaka iliyoainishwa na Elo-Him. Yule tajiri alipokutana na Lazaro alimsihi Lazaro aende kuwashtua nduguze ili wasiingie pabaya  pasipo mafanikio. Hii ni kwa kuwa alipokuwa duniani hakuiona hiyo fursa ya kukutana na watumishi wa Mungu kisha abadilishe mtazamo.

Mmoja kati ya wachungaji vijana wa Ki-Tanzania ambao kiukweli kwa habari ya ufahamu wa Neno la Mungu wako vizuri ni Pastor Wisdom ambaye kwa sasa yuko Mkoani Kagera na kanisa la Winners Chapel. Aliwahi sema wakati yuko Nigeria zamani haikuwa tabu sana kwake kupata appointment ya kuonana na Prophet Tb Joshua. Mara nyingine walikuwa wanaambiwa Prophert yuko Temple yeyote anaweza kwenda kumuona na sio watu weengi walikuwa wakienda kumuona, Lakini kwa sasa ni ngumu, na Pastor hata akiandika Email kujibiwa huchukuwa Muda, ile access ya kumuona kirahisi haipo tena,


Kwa wanafunzi walioko vyuoni, wanayo fursa ya kuwahubiria wenzao kirahisi mno kuliko baada ya ya miaka mitano ijayo. Ikiwa asiyeokoka uliyenae karibu chuoni anapata Boom na wee unapata, anaishi kibishi kama wengine, kumuhubiria huyu habari za kristo kwa kipindi hiki ni rahisi mno kuliko kumhubiria akiwa tayari ni Regional Manager wa Kampuni fulani hapa mjini.

Uvumi wa judgement Day

Harold Camping

Harold Camping ni mmoja kati ya viongozi wa Group lililosambaza Habari Dunia nzima kuwa tarehe 21/may/2011 ndio siku ambayo Mungu ataihukumu dunia. Kiini cha kampeni hiyo ilikuwa ni kuliandaa kanisa kama alivyofanya NUHU, kwa mujibu wa walichokuwa wakikiamini ni kuwa ndio siku ambayo Kristo atalinyakuwa kanisa.Hatimaye tarehe hiyo imefika bila lolote kutokea. Kwa msomaji mzuri wa Biblia atakuwa amejifunza Mengi juu ya hili, na kwa kadri ambavyo siku zinavyozidi kwenda na namna ambavyo kila mtu anaitafsiri Biblia kama aonavyo yeye, kanisa halina budi kujipanga vizuri kwa kuwa wengi watakuja na kutangaza mambo mengi zaidi ya Hili.

Mabango ya namna hii yalisambazwa sehemu mbalimbali Duniani kote

Wanamuziki wa Kenya wan`gara

Baada ya mikiki mikiki ya kutafuta contestants kwenye kategori mbalimbali, kwa upande wa Afrika mashariki wanamuziki wa injili toka nchini Kenya wameibuka kidedea kwa kuchomoza kwenye kategori takribani nane. Wakati Christina shusho ndiye mtanzania pekee aliyeibuka kama Nominee, Shusho yumo kwenye kategori ya Mwanamuziki Bora wa Injili afrika mashariki. Nchi nyingine za Rwanda na Uganda nazo zimefanikiwa kupenyeza wanamuziki katika kuwania tuzo hizo.

 Hosanna Inc imekuwa ikizifuatilia Tuzo hizi za Afrika tangu kwenye mchakato wa kupendekeza washiriki watakaowania tuzo hizo. Wingi wa wakenya kwenye Tuzo hizo sio kwamba wanafanya Vizuri kuliko wa-tanzania, siri kubwa hapa ni INFORMATION, kwa kuwa masharti ya kushiriki ni ya kawaida.Wengi wa wanamuziki wa tanzania hawazijui Tuzo hizi na hata wadau mbalimbali pia hawana taarifa juu ya uwepo wa Tuzo hizi na namna ya kushiriki. Ila ni matumaini yetu kuwa mwakani mambo yatabadirika na kuwashirikisha watanzania wengi zaidi.

Why is Fasting Necessary ?




Through Fasting, we can improve our effectiveness in the things of the spirit. In simple terms, Fasting helps you to tame the flesh and lift the spirit. As Christians, we are required to walk in the spirit, always. This means to be spirit-controlled and not flesh-controlled. This is important because Rom 8:6 says “…to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” and also in John 6:63 our Lord Jesus said “It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing

Fasting helps to sharpen our ability to receive or hear from God. It is like raising a spiritual antenna to pick the finer signals of the Spirit’s communication.

MUNGU NA MALI -Mwl C. Mwakasege


Mwl C. Mwakasege
     Kuna uhusiano gaini kati ya Mungu na mali?
     Kuna uhusiano gaini kati ya mkristo na mali?
     Kuna uhusiano gaini kati ya wokovu na mali?
     Je, nidhambi kwa mkristo kuwa na mali nyingi?

Hebu na tuangalie maneno ya yesu kristo juu ya Mungu na mali.
      “Hakuna mtu awezaye kutumikia mabwana wawili, kwa maana hatamchukia huyu, Na kumpenda huyu; ama atashikamana na huyu, na kumdharau huyu. Hamwenzi Kumtumikia Mungu na mali’’ (mathayo 6:24)

Neno la kingereza lililotafasiliwana kuandikwa ‘MALI’ ni ‘MAMMON’  na  hili ‘mammon’ ni jina la roho ya bilisi anayotawala mali. Kwa maneno mengine naweza kusema kuwa ‘mammon’ ni jina la pepo.

Kwahiyo, neon ‘mali’ neon mali lilivyotumika hapa linamaanisha ‘pepo linaloitwa pepo mali’ ndiyo maana yesu kristo alisema “hakuna mtu awezaye kutumikia MABWANA wawili…” Yesu kristo asingeliita mali kuwa nimojawapo ya MABWANA kama hakuwa juu ya roho inayo itwa mali. Roho hii ya shetani  iitwayo mali imefanya watu wengi, hata wakristo waache kumtumikia Mungu aliye hai, na badalayake waitumikie roho inayowasukuma na kuwatamanisha juu ya mali, ili waitumie kwa uchoyo na ubinafsi.

     Wakristo wngine wanadhani wanaweza  kumtumikia Mungu na vile vile kummtumiakia mali. Yesu kristo alisema; “HAKUNA mtu awezaye kutumikia mabwana wawili; kwa maana ATAMCHUKIA HUYU, NA KUMPENDA HUYU; AMA ATASHIKAMANA NA HUYU, NA KUMDHARAU HUYU. Hamwenzi kumtumikia Mungu na mali.”

Kwakusema hivi akuwa anamaanisha kuwa na vitu vinavyo itwa mali si vibaya. Kitu anachosema ni kibaya ni KUITUMIKIA MALI! Bibilia inasema katika Zaburi 24:1 kuwa, “Nchi na vyote viijazavyo ni mali ya Bwana; Dunia na wote wakaao ndani yake .”

Mtu hakuumbwa ili aitumikie mali. Mtu aliumbwa kwa ajili ya utukufu wa Mungu na amtumikie yeye peke yake. Mali ya dunia iliwekwa kwa ajili ya kumtukia mtu, na siyo mtu aitumikie mali! Mtu aliwekwa juu ya mali yote na aliingizwa kuitawala (Mwanzo 1:28 – 30).

Kuwa na mali siyo vibaya, wala siyo dhambi. Mali inakuwa kikwazo katika maisha ya mkristo inapoaza kumfanya mtu amsahau Mungu na mapenzi yake. Ndiyo maana Yesu kristo alisema “ kwa shida gani wenye mali watauingia ufalme wa Mungu” (Luka 18:24) siyo kwamba huwezi kuingia ufalme wa Mungu. Bali kwa shida wenye mali watauingia ufalme wa mungu. Kwa maneno mengine ni kwamba wakimtanguliza na kumtumikia Mungu, mali haita kuwa kwazo katika maisha yao ya ukristo.


 Sasa tuishije katika ushauri wa namna hii?

“Kwa namna hiyo nawaambieni, msisumbukie maisha yenu, mle nini au mnywe nini; wala miili yenu, mvae nini maisha je! Si zaidi ya chakula, na mwili zaidi ya mavazi? Waangalieni ndege wa angani, yakwamba hawa pandi, wala hawavuni, wala hawakusanyi ghalani; na baba yenu wa mbinguni huwalisha hao. Ninyi je! Si bora kupita hao? NI YUPI KWENU AMBAYE AKIJISUMBUA AWEZA KUJIONGEZA KIMO CHAKE MKONO MMOJA? Namavazi ya nini kuyasumbukia? fikirini maua ya shambani jinsi yameavyo, hayafanyi kazi wala hayasokoti, nami nawaambieni hata sulemani katika fahari yake yote hakuvikwa vizuri kama mojawapo yahayo, basi ikiwa mungu huyauvika hivi majani ya kondeni, yaliyopo leo, na kesho hutupwa karibuni, JE!HATAZIDISANA KUWAVIKA NINYI, ENYI WA IMANI HABA?. Msisumbuke basi, mkisema, tule nini? au tunywe nini? au tuvae nini? Kwa maana haya yote mataifa huyatafuta,  kwa sababu baba yenu wa mbinguni anajua mnahitaji hayo yote.{matayo 6;25-32}

Kuna wakristo wengi wameyaelewa vibaya maneno ya Bwana YESU kristo hata kufikia kutokufanya kazi kwa kisingizio cha kwamba Yesu kristo alisema tusiyasumbukie maisha. Kwao kufanya kazi ina maana kusumbukia maisha. Lakini napenda kuwaambia yakua Yesu kristo hakua namaana yakutuambia tusifannye kazi aliposema tusiyasumbukie maisha.

Nadhani unaamini kuwa ni Roho wa kristo aliyemuongoza mtume PAULO kuwaandikia wathesolenike juu yamashauri mbalimbali ya kikristo katika1Wathesolenike3;10b anasema,”ikiwa mtu hataki kufanya kazi,basi,asile chakula’  Nimuhimu kufanya kazi. Kufanya kazi sio kusumbuka na maisha na Kusumbuka na maisha sio kufanya kazi.

Jambo ambalo Bwana Yesu alitaka tufahamu wakati alipokua akisema tusiyasumbukie maisha nikwamba katika kila jambo tumshirikishe Mungu na kumtanguliza yeye. Wakiristo wengi wanadhani wanaweza kula, kunywa na kuvaa bila msaada wa Mungu.Yesu kristo alisema katika Yohana15:5b kuwa; ‘…..maana pasipo mimi ninyi hamuwezi kufanya neno lolote’’{HILI NIPAMOJA NA KULA NA KUVAA} ndio maana katika wakilipi4:13 imeandikwa kuwa”nayaweza mambo yote katika YEYE anitiaye nguvu” Yesu kristo ndiye atutiate nguvu.
Yesu kristo alitoa muongozo mzuri sana wa jinsi ya kuishi hapa ulimwenguni alisema;
Bali utafuteni KWANZA ufalme wake,na haki yake,na hayo yote mtazidishiwa”{mathayo 6;33}
Ukiyaangalia maisha ya watu wengi utadhani Yesu kristo alisema”bali utafuteni kwanza ufalme wake, na haki yake, na hayo yote MTAONDOLEWA” Inahuzunisha kuona watu wengi wakiokoka maisha yao yanageuka kuwa duni, wanashindwa kula vizuri wala kuvaa vizuri.

Ngoja nirudie kusema SI MAPENZI YA MUNGU UWE MASIKINI. SI MAPENZI YA MUNGU TUKOSE CHAKULA WALA MAVAZI. Ni Mungu yupi ambaye atawapenda ndege akiawavika na kuwalisha, nakuacha watoto wake aliowaumba kwa mfano wake wakose chakula na mavazi?. MUNGU wetu tunayemuabudu na kumtumikia katika kristo Yesu,anapenda tuishi maisha mazuri, tule na kuvaa vizuri.Tunachotakiwa kufanya nikuutafuta kwanza ufalume wake,na haki yake, na hayo yoye{chakula na mavazi}TUTAZIDISHIWA na sio TUTAONDOLEWA.

Ukiona mtu anasema ameokoka halafu anajikuta amekosa chakula na mavazi, huku anafanya kazi,basi ujue anafanya kazi na kukusanya vitu hivyo pasipo Bwana kwa kuwa asiye kusanya pamoja na Bwana hutapanya.
