In most urban centres, garbage is collected at least once every fortnight. If garbage is left uncollected, unsanitary conditions ensue and health may be compromised. When garbage collecters take a labour dispute by going on strike, it is not the most pleasant time to live in a city because of the smell that comes out of the heaps of garbage. Human life is not very different from garbage. When we habour all sorts of garbage in our hearts (anger, envy,or generally all manner of SIN), our lives send out a stench. Fortunately, we are told that we can take out our garbage on a regular basis to the one who is faithful and just to wipe our misdeeds clean. In contrast to the city garbage collectors, He who is able to forgive our sins does not go on strike. This is our God and you can read about how He does this in 1 John 1:9-10.

Happy Birthday Zambia

Zambia celebrated 45 years of independence from Britain on October 24. Zambia has had4 presidents (three of them in the last 15 years). Ascendancy to power has been through the ballot. Though problems exist at evry election (with allegations of vote rigging), the people of Zambia must be congratulated for respecting the rule of law. My birthday wish for Zambia is to see selfless young leaders to take up the challenge of leading. I respect what the founding fathers did but there comes a time to put new leaders into office. 45 years is long enough to trust that wisdom has been passed on. Well done Zambia.
