LIGHTER Mood: Don't Respond to every argument...!

The only bird that dares to peck on an Eagle is the crow.

He sits on his back and bites his neck.

However, the Eagle does not respond, nor fight with the crow; it doesn’t waste time or energy on the crow! It simply opens its wings and begins to rise higher in the heavens.

The higher the flight, the harder it is for the crow to breathe and then the crow falls due to lack of oxygen. Stop wasting your time with the “crows”.

*Not all battles we need to respond to.

Not all arguments or critics we need to respond to or answer back… Just lift a standard, and the opposition will fall off. Just take them to your height and they’ll fade away.*

*May God take us to the height where it’ll be difficult for the enemies to peck on us!!!*

Methodist Church enthrones first female Bishop in Nigeria
*First Female Bishop of Methodist Church Nigeria, Most Rev Dr Nkechi Nwosu, Bishop Diocese of Jos

The Methodist Church Nigeria, on Sunday, enthroned Rt Rev. Nkechi  Nwosu as the first female bishop of the Church in the country.

 Nwosu was enthroned by His Grace, Most Rev Dr. Joseph Nnonah, Archbishop of Kaduna at the Christ Methodist Cathedral, Jos.

The new bishop in a brief interaction with newsmen revealed that “God is using what has happened in the Methodist Church, Nigeria to tell the whole world that the time to release women to fulfill their destiny has come.

She said that women and men needed to join hands to achieve the mandate of God.

“God knew that by creating only Adam, He will not be able to bring his heart’s desire, so He had to make the woman to complement him.

“So, for the word of God to reach to the end of the world, “man must put their hands together to serve God”, irrespective of gender because God is a spirit.

“He is not a flesh, the flesh we are seeing is just for our comfort, as He said that everybody who believes in Him and is led by the spirit of God is the son of God.

“And so every child of God who is born again and dwells in the Holy Spirit is a son of God.

“And when men or women of God in charge of denominations understand this, I believe we will conquer more for the Lord than what we have done,” she said.

On the 2023 general elections, Nwosu called on Nigerians to listen to the voice of God who knows the best leader for the country at this moment.

She said that God gave Nigerians conscience and power and that the power is in the Permanent Voters Card (PVC).

“We must all go out there and agree with God, listen to the spirit of God and do what God said we should do.

“Do that so that God will use us and anybody He wants to put on that seat to restore Nigeria to a place of pride in Africa, and the world,” she added.

His Eminence, Dr. Samuel Uche, Prelate Emeritus, Methodist Church Nigeria, during whose tenure Nwosu was elected bishop, said that God made all humans equal.

Uche said that Jesus Christ elevated the position of women by being born of a woman.

“So I believe there is no difference between a man and a woman, after all, in the Hebrew language, a man is a he-man and a woman is she man, so we are all men.

“And moreover, in Methodist Church, we taught that people who have reached menopause, who are no longer childbearing can hold responsible office in the church because they have the capacity.

“They have the ability, they are meticulous, resourceful and spiritual.

“So we decided that we should have in Methodist Bishop a woman and I know that some time ago, the President of the British Church was a woman from Ireland,” he said.

 Nwosu will serve as Bishop of Jos Diocese.

LIGHTER MOOD: *WHAT SOCIOLOGISTS SAY..:!*

LIGHTER MOOD: *WHAT SOCIOLOGISTS SAYS...:!*

LIGHTER MOOD: WHAT SOCIOLOGISTS SAY…

*1- If you are in a hotel or restaurant, and you put more sugar or milk in your tea than you do in your home then you have a predisposition to corruption.*

*2- If you use more tissue paper, soap or perfume in a restaurant or public place than you do at home, then if you have the opportunity to embezzle, you will embezzle.*

*3- If you serve yourself more food than you can devour in weddings and open buffets just because someone else will pay the bill, this is proof that if you have the opportunity to eat public money, you would.*

*4- If you usually skip people in queues, it is certain that you will not mind climbing on the shoulders of others to reach power.*

*5- If you consider that what you collect from the street, money and other things is your right, then you have signs of a thief.*

*6- If you care more about knowing a famous last name instead of a first name then you are a racist and will likely help people only because of who they are.*

*7- If you violate traffic rules and have no regard for the traffic lights… you have a tendency for all transgressions.*

_Fighting corruption starts from the self. Let’s try to be distinguished people wherever we are, and remember that honesty is what you do between you and yourself and not just what you do in the presence of people._

*_Fighting corruption starts with self!*
