Two Types of Wisdom

iStock Image  "Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom.  But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth.  This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic.  For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.  But the wisdom that is from above …

Weekend Plans & A Possible Trip

I glanced at my watch. It was near mid-night. Time to leave. I gently extricated myself from Sarika and sat up in the bed. "What's wrong, Trishan?" she asked. "Nothing." The truth was, I wished that I hadn't had sex with her. I should have made up some excuse but it was her birthday and …

God’s Anger at Sin

Image by Freepik "But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who suppress the truth by their wickedness. They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them.  For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can …

Melania Goes to Tanner

Melania stood there in her room, still reeling from her run in with Gina yesterday. She had come very, very close to punching her in the face. Marry Tanner? She must be out of her mind. Why on earth would Tanner marry her? The idea seemed so ridiculous and yet, it nagged at her. After …

Father Kiesler’s Visit

He had just finished the second Mass and was in the office. He had a few things to do before he changed into his black cassock, made his rounds and then, visited Monifa. He couldn't wait to see and be with her. He missed having her live close by at the dorm and going over …

It Was All A Lie

Getty Image I stood there watching him and his family flanked by bodyguards. They looked like the perfect couple but it was all a lie. His wife, Hannah suspected that he was having an affair but she didn't know who the other woman was. Whenever we were together in public, no one suspected anything. By …

Someone Else Knew

He was in his office standing by the window, looking out and thinking about Monifa when there was a knock on the door. "Eingeben," he called. The door opened and Gracelyn entered. "I brought you your mail," she said, going over to his desk and putting it in the in-tray. "Thank you," he replied. "Would …

Bryson Confronts Tessa

"What are you doing here?" she demanded when she opened the door. He walked past her, his expression dour. "You know bloody well why I'm here," he retorted. "Well, make it snappy," she replied, slamming the door shut and preceding him into the living-room. "As you can see, I'm dressed to go out." "Exactly when …

Broken Plans

He was on his way up to her flat when his cell rang. He thought of ignoring it but it could be urgent. It was. Bradley informed him that he was needed back in the office for the Adjournment Proceedings. "I'll be right there," he said, glancing at his watch. He had exactly half-hour to …

Unrequited

“I feel as if I just drank a bottle of bamboozled.” “What do you mean?” “All this time I thought she loved me but it was all a terrible lie.” “Are you talking about Inga?” He nodded. “I tried to warn you about her.” “Yes, you did.” “But, as usual, you wouldn’t listen.  I don’t …
