HOME

When we think of Home, a beautiful family living in a peaceful apartment comes to mind. We often picture a happy couple with some amazing kids. While many of us seem to have an idea of what a home is, very few truly understand and experience the true essence of a 'Home'.

Many unconsciously walk around the world searching for a 'HOME' 

A Home, I believe, is where you're shown true love and care. Home is that 'place' where you're Accepted and Loved for who you are. Home is where your heart finds rest and peace. Where you belong, where you're treasured and treated like a million bucks! 
Home is where your Strengths are emphasised over your Weaknesses and your Goodness before your Faults. 
Home is where you find your true and best friends. Where you find strength in times of weakness, courage when fear comes knocking, help in times of need and motivation when you're discouraged. 
It's therefore not surprising that some find 'home' in the Streets, in the slums of Lagos. The truth is, to some, the environment doesn't really matter, what does is that they find a 'home' there.

'Home' is an important part of our lives. From the foregoing, it'll be obvious that a 'home' is what Jesus intended His church to be, a place where you're accepted and loved unconditionally for who you are, then nurtured lovingly to become who God originally created you to be.

Some of us grew up in homes where we're showered with love and kindness. While some don't have such luxury or as many will call it, luck, we must understand that we can, ( and we should because we're able to) find 'Home' first, in God's love. His love is infinite, immeasurable, unconditional and everlasting.

We can find 'Home' with ourselves when we come to understand, love, accept and see ourselves the way God sees us. I believe this is most healthy form of self-image we can have. Until we're able to do this, no amount of love shown to us by others will make any difference. We must feel at home with ourselves before we can feel at home with others.

We're Empowered to Empower Others

One important truth we must all come to terms with in our world today is that as long as we're alive, we'll always be confronted by one challenge or the other. It is childish and immature to think or believe that life, at any given time will be trouble-free. It is then imperative that we understand that we face challenges so we can become stronger and grow to be who God created us to be. 
However, God promises to strengthen and comfort us when we go through trials. He promised to be with us when we go through any storm or fire. 
"When you pass through the waters, I will be with you, and through the rivers, they will not overwhelm you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned or scorched, nor will the flame kindle upon you" Isaiah 43:2
When God does, He then expects us to extend the comfort and strength to others. We are to Empower Others with what God gives us. Just as we know that we can't give what we don't have, we are expected to pass on to o…

HUSTLER OR ENTREPRENEUR?

Earlier today, I asked friends on my Whatsapp time-line the difference between a Hustler and an Entrepreneur. Of course, there was a plethora of answers as different people gave very distinct meanings in response. What surprised me the most was that no two people gave the same answer. Everyone had a distinct point of view.
However, for the sake of clarity and simplicity I decided to curate most of the responses as well as my personal observations into an article.
First and foremost, a Hustler is someone who "make strenuous efforts to obtain" money or profit from different areas or businesses engagements. An entrepreneur however is one who starts a business (or businesses), manages it to produce tangible value and make profit from it. 
You see, it's easy to assume there's not much difference between the two personalities but there are. 
While Kemi, a LASU Undergraduate perceives the difference in the freedom an Entrepreneur enjoys compared to a Hustler, Success, a Bl…
