A contract is a legally binding agreement entered into by two or more parties. It is mutually beneficial to all parties involved and once signed it is binding unless one of the parties breaks the contract.
Life is full of contracts agreed by negotiation because we all need somthing that another party can provide, for instance, mobile phone contracts, utilities, subscriptions, loans etc.

In Greek mythology, Pandora was the first woman on earth. She was given a box by Zeus (their chief god), with instructions to never open the box. Curiosity got the better of her, and she opened the box, letting out every evil known to man. Too late, she tried to shut the box but everything had escaped and there was no way to get them back. The only thing left in the box was hope.

I had heard a lot about the new movie, 'Man of Steel', but had paid little attention to it until I listened to an interview with some of the film cast and director. It made for interesting listening and I'm now considering going to see the movie, and I say kudos to them for incorporating Christ's story in a mainstream hollywood production.
Here are some excerpts of the interview, courtesy of Christian World News.

Exodus is a ministry that tries to help gay people overcome their sexual orientation. Well, recently the leader of this ministry, Alan Chambers, admitted he's attracted to men. He has written a letter of apology to the gay and lesbian community and has also announced the closure of the ministry. FULL STORY HERE
This is so sad! I wonder what could have happened. I wonder whether he had enough prayer cover as he embarked on this ministry. I can't imagine what his wife must be going through at this time!
I pray for his deliverance and total restoration.

Vanguard online are reporting that Prophet Timothy Obadare, a renowned evangelist and founder of the World Soul-winning Evangelical Mission (WOSEM), who died on March 21, will be buried in a gold-plated casket similar to the one Michael Jackson was buried in. The cost, a whopping $25,000!

Every valuable thing is vulnerable. Vulnerable to destruction, injury, theft or compromise. Who are your friends? Who do you share your dreams and ideas with? Who do you seek advice from?
Sometimes, without realising it, we are surrounded by enemies posing as friends, and these are the first ones we go to with our ideas and to seek counsel. These people will do everything they can to discourage you and kill your vision.

Not too long ago I watched an interesting documentary about the HIV/AIDS pandemic and the efforts being made by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS (UNAIDS), and Western governments to influence African leaders to come round to their way of thinking with regards to combating HIV/AIDS in Africa.
Their strategies include:

These are popular Nigerian comedians. They are also professing Christians. I've only recently discovered this, and it's good to know you can listen to people like this and expect to enjoy clean, family-friendly comedy. It's also good to know there's no need for a Christian comedian to compromise their values in order to be successful. Kudos to them!
1 Corinthians 15:1-4
"Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand.
By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according
to the Scriptures,
that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures."

Like I've said before, I watch a lot of Christian television. Well today a preacher came on to promote his book. I can't remember the exact title but it was something about Christian Billionaires, how to unlock your potential and maximize your income.

Last night I dreamt that a schoolmate of mine (high school) was critically ill, and died! Nothing could be done for her despite all efforts.
Just before I went to bed, I had wished her 'happy birthday' on Facebook and I wonder if the dream came about because I had her on my mind.
I've learned not to discountenance any dream ever since I lost a young cousin of mine in 2005. I had a dream prior to his death, but did not understand what it meant. I always wonder if he would still be alive today if only I had prayed.
I've said a prayer for my friend and for everyone dear to me, just in case there's anything to it.
