Some aspects of the Christian culture we have here are good for souls. For example, kneeling down to greet spiritual leaders is a good culture, irrespective of your status in the church. No African culture condones disrespect. Anyone who does not learn respect in his/her home may cause some trouble when he gets to church. Thus, such a one has to be re-trained. Your parents and siblings at home are very important to your soul. The home is the first port of call.
Charity begins at home. It will make it easier for the gospel. A soul who is stubborn at home will also be stubborn in the church. God does not want a rebellious heart; hence He arranges situations around us to break us and make us serve others. God knows how to arrange things for you. If you were not well trained in your house, God will raise a brother to deal with you until the soul is broken. Every soul has a customized arrangement from the Lord to train it. The training you do not get now, you will get it afterwards. There is an arrangement in every door God opens for us. There is an arrangement for training, in marriage, at the workplace etc. May we be trained by the Lord in Jesus’ name.
