W hat is information:
Information are intelligent words or data put together for edification of the person and for physical or spiritual manifestation or process of things.
When a person is informed he or she is able to use intelligent words or data for personal edification and said to have acquired knowledge.
One of the most intelligent and inspired books in the Bible is recorded in the book of Psalms, David wrote 150 Chapters out of the 929 Chapters of the Old testament. 260 New Testament.=1189
If the information you are digesting is not intelligent enough you are probably wasting time and there will not be any physical manifestation…

Origin of information.

Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
God was the first to put together intelligent words for manifestation. And that is the characteristics of our God.
The purpose of every information spoken or written is to influence. James 1:22 But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
The most important part of the information process is not the information itself but the processor. The mind.
2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Also to note information are powerful.
2 Thessalonians 2:2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

Spoken Word and its Significances.

  1. God’s word. It is powerful and potent.[NLT] – Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is alive and powerful. [NLT] – Proverbs 30:5 Every word of God proves true. He is a shield to all who come to him for protection. Psalms 119:11 Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
  2. Your own word constructive. 1 Peter 4:11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; Our heart is the process factory of every information we give. A man with a dirty or unholy heart will speak corruption always.
  3. devils word. The devil speaks. Unfortunately like the serpent so many people have allowed themselves to be used by the devil as his mouth piece. Genesis 3:1 Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Written word.

Are written out in paper or typed on machines for us to read.

  1. For References and learning. Gods word: His words are recorded in the Bible from it has come life, words that that still affect us today. Most of our knowledge are in text books written down to help us grow. God also show us the importance of writing. [NLT] – Exodus 31:18 When the Lord finished speaking with Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two stone tablets inscribed with the terms of the covenant, written by the finger of God. CHAPTER 32:
  2. Helps us draw a map for the future through jotting and planning.
Example of how powerful the written word recorded in
Esther 6:1 On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.

  1. It serves as guide
  2. Guides our decision making.

Factors Resulting from Bad Leadership on Followers.

Matthew 7:17-18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruits and a bad tree cannot bear good fruits.

A CASE STUDY OF DIOTREPHES.

3 John 1:9 I wrote unto the church: but Diotrephes, who loveth to have the preeminence among them, receiveth us not. 1:10 Wherefore, if I come, I will remember his deeds which he doeth, prating against us with malicious words: and not content therewith, neither doth he himself receive the brethren, and forbiddeth them that would, and casteth them out of the church.
NOTE: A follower is a replicate of the leader he is following.
What Diotrephes did that was wrong.
  • He always want to be a leader. He is full of himself. Matthew 23:6-7
  • He refuses to submit to truth about authority, He does not want to accept instructions from higher authorities. Eph. 1:20-22 1Cor. 14:37.
  • He speaks evil, hateful words of other persons. Matthew 12:36-37.
  • He refuses to welcome travelling teachers. And refuses others from welcoming them.
Conclusion:

3 John 1:11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.

Dear friend, don’t let this bad example influence you. Follow only what is good. Remember that those who do good prove that they are God’s children, and those who do evil prove that they do not know God.
We Can imitate Demetrius.
3 John 1:12 Demetrius hath good report of all men, and of the truth itself: yea, and we also bear record; and ye know that our record is true.
Everyone speaks highly of Demetrius, as does the truth itself. We ourselves can say the same for him, and you know we speak the truth.

    How To Become A Youth Leader.

    I know someone with a very aggressive personality, someone who is dedicated to excellence.

    In his latest post on social media, he talks about leadership, how young minds can create the desired change in their society and stair the wheel of leadership at a young age.

    He is John Obidi, read the following and share the process explained below.

    ====

    1. Give it a catchy and memorable name. Add ‘Africa’ at the end – Mentor Hub Africa for example.

    2. Create a compelling value proposition that is tied to the UN MDGs or SDGs – We empower at-risk youth in Nigeria with skills required to end poverty and compete favourably in the global economy.

    3. Create a free physical event. Venues cost less than 40k or a church might let you use their facility for free.

    4. Get free publicity by announcing in religious centres and on facebook.

    5. Take plenty pictures of smiling attendees showing the impact of your work.

    6. Get video testimonials

    7. Post the results on Facebook, Instagram and on your website.

    8. Tell your mentors about what you’ve done and ask if they can help you get TV/Radio opportunities to talk about it. I’ve done this for a lot of people. I ignore those who come to me with empty hands and empty minds.

    9. Take pictures and videos of you on TV/Radio and post on Social Media and on your website for more recognition and traction.

    10. Next thing, you’ll be nominated for one award. Then CNN African Voices

    And the show goes on and on…

    Don’t you deserve a better life?

    For the best time of life, I dedicate this letter to everyone that is struggling to overcome, that has overcome but still falls back inaccuracy. Those that draws strength from the wrong places, those that cry at night before sleep, those that go on like all is well, smile at us and deep down there is pain and anger.

    I came from a life of selfish ambitions, ineptitude and indifference. If you know how darken my heart has become, an expressionless-ness, dissipated by lack of motivation, callously shaped by lack of evidence and dark edges.

    Don’t get me wrong, I have been lucky, at a young age, I had a diplomatic passport, I have been to places, spoken to top government policy makers, it was an honour, BUT. 

    What about my loss of self discovery, purpose of living, what do I really want out of life, who am I? 

    I could not answer many life questions, and if those questions remain unanswered, life become more meaningless, I embrace the future fearlessly but with vagueness.



    My personality requires I see evidence in everything. Don’t talk to me about religion: if you lack it, don’t preach it, if you don’t have it why tell me to own it. I was looking for the end to things.

    Larry King said he is not an atheist and he is not a Christian, he falls within the category of people that think they dropped into life. Always asking questions.

    Things will only grow from bad to worse, when you have money to feed, if you can travel to places you think happiness can be found, buy yourself things that will melodify your heart for a time, if you find a lady you think will quench you fleshy needs.

    WE ALL THINK THIS IS WHAT HAPPINESS IS ALL ABOUT.

    Do you wake up and look around the emptiness that is around you. Do you fall back to sin and you wish life could be taken out of you. How many bottles have you drank to forget about it. 

    When I used to inhale death, I did a packet, almost every day, taking in suicidal smoke destroying my heart. How many do you still take in day to calm yourself. You are in that abusive relationship and you cannot get out because you love her/him.

    How many times have you gone on fasting and praying with tears in search for answers. 

    Have you cut yourself with sharp objects so that you can forgive him. Did you almost drink that poison, acid because you feel trapped.

    Every night the nightmares keeps coming, you are tired. Next time you slept with him you felt like half human, crying to God again for forgiveness…

    I don’t mean to count all our sins and fears, no, I didn’t mean to make you feel bad again, no, I did not mean to make you remember again no.

    3 years ago I made a decision, in my one room apartment. I entered my sitting room, lock the door. I just came in from work, I looked around me again and again. 

    As usual, I wanted to strike the lighter and inhale that suicidal smoke again. I said to myself, “don’t i deserve a better life” 

    God placed a thought in my heart, I knew it was Him. 

    I answered the question, “yes I deserve I better life” 

    But I need strength, I need love, I need joy, I need answers, I need happiness, I need security, I need faith.

    I told God if you can help me drop this habits and you can give me all these needs I will be yours.

    All the answers will not come once, but gradually as you dwell on Gods word, you find answers, to many questions.

    We need a personal relationship with God, you need to find a place with God where you can draw strength and wisdom.

    Accept Christ as your saviour, rededicate your life to him, you do not need a pastor to do this, it is a personal commitment.

    God loves you, He does with everything.  

    EPHESIANS 1:7   In Him we have redemption (deliverance and salvation) through His blood, the remission (forgiveness) of our offenses (shortcomings and trespasses), in accordance with the riches and the generosity of His gracious favor

    He will turn all things round, this is my testimony of happiness. 

    Everything, every other things, your job, marriage, lifestyle, will be cared for.

    Some prayers don’t get answers as at when you want them but they will be answered later, go to His word and get answers, get insights, get inspiration, get wisdom for daily living.

    I encourage you to read EPHESIANS 1. Read first with the King James version and Amplified, and other versions, read over again and understand that, God has called you for His purpose, a purpose of wisdom and peace and inheritance for a fruitful living.

    Gradually, you will see improvement as you dedicate your daily living to him, your mind will be renewed, your thoughts will be like freshwater,  your mind will be springing with great ideas and you will marvel.

    Whenever you fall back, your mind will tells you to go back to God, ideas on how to improve your marriage will spring out, your mind will not be settled for the bottom anymore, you will be elevated.

    My years of life rededicated to God, I can only say, God deserve all the praise. The life I live now cannot be bought with money or things. 

    Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.

    I see many young people troubled, in search for answers. I will love you to understand that this works, God works, Jesus works, dedicate  your life to Him.

    You will find happiness and joy. 

    Don’t you deserve a better life?

    Remain happy. 

    Getting along with your boss

    When was the last time you sent your boss a txt.

    A good relationship between you and your boss makes life easier in the work space, I know how  a bad working environment feels too.

    I have seen people slapped, abused, disgraced and I tell you it not interesting.

    More also, I have seen people favoured, promoted, loved by doing little things other don’t do.

    Its not hard to make your boss like you.

    Your boss happiness is your happiness.

    Make your boss office his second home.

    Always make him feel special.

    These points above are techniques that have worked and still does.

    Your goal as an employee is to make life easy for your boss at work, and this means, you must develop yourself in your filed to work smarter and harder.

     1. Work harder to get more done.

     2. Work smarter to do more with little time.

     3. Learn to predict what your boss will need.

     4. Always be on hand to assist him when he/she is confused.

     5. Learn to Sacrifice.

    One of the things that has endeared me to my bosses is the enthusiasm around me. In my line of work, I take orders and instructions always.

    Sometimes different orders from different bosses with little break at intervals. The willingness and attitude I put into each is always wonderful. 

    You must have the “I got this attitude” to succeed and to make them happy. 

    At lease try

    Also, Your boss must know you love and enjoy your work, make him feel it, smile when you do it. 

    Be passionate about it and let it show. Oh my, I remember sometimes ago, in my office, the work load was much and it keeps coming and I was not showing tiredness and at a point I stretched and breathed out a long breathe, and I continued.

    My boss said, Sam, let’s go home, he paid for fuelling and and dinner. 

    Be open, ask questions. When last did you meet your boss to help you with a better way to solve a problem. 

    When did you share your new idea with him or her and explain how that will improve his/her working experience.

    Be open to ask for help, most times the only help we ask for is cash and leave days. Suggest how you can improve your work and show results.

    Finally, show concerns for his family and out of work life while you keep yours private. Don’t bug your boss with your issues, don’t look moody all day because of family issues. Do your work.

    But show that you care, when he travels send me a message, buy him a tie, get toy’s for his/her kids. 

    I have worked in different states withing and outside Nigeria, under several bosses and I sure know how to stay happy.

    Remain happy.
