- Biblical Foundation
- Attentive Listening
- Exemplary Leadership
These values have been derived from 5 inspirational scriptures:
Moses could not be allowed to enter the Promised Land simply for not carefully following God’s instructions (Numbers 20:1-13). The first value reminds us of the significance of listening to God intently and obeying Him continually. As a ministry, we nurture a spirit of attentive listening and obedience to God though learning, teaching and living by the word of God, hence the values: Biblical Foundation and Attentive Listening.
There was transcendent peace in King David’s family until he sinned against God by committing adultery, scheming with intention to hurt others, murder and telling lies in attempt to conceal his sin (2 Samuel 11-22). As a result his family became so chaotic and uncontrollable that even one of his sons successfully captured power from him and attempted to eliminate him. Had it not been God’s help after David repented in tears and fasting, King David would not have been restored to leadership. This reminds us of the significance of walking in righteousness and Exemplary Leadership.
Prophet Samuel was a very respectable prophet but his sons did not follow their father’s example of unreserved obedience to God. Their ungodliness was one of the reasons the people of Israel dwelt on to demand for their own king like the gentile nations (1 Samuel 8). When Eli was the High Priest, his sons were rebellious and very disrespectful to God. They gave in to their shameful greed and sin that God had to also judge their father for ignoring to correct them (1 Samuel 2:12-4:22). Eli seemed to have treasured his sons more than helping them obey and fear God. Eventually he lost them to war and equally died when the news reached him. This reminds us of the of our responsibility to help children and those we lead grow and keep in the fear of God.
God commanded the people of Israel to obey Him continually and to be intentional and consistent in helping their children and grandchildren obey God all their life. This mandatory commandment goes with a promise: Prolonged, prosperous and healthy life (Deuteronomy 6:1-9). Our responsibility must include the awareness and deliberate strategy to ensure sustainable health and prosperity only obtainable through consistent obedience. This adds the value of productivity.
