Sense 101 Life Club family,
In today’s Daily Challenge, I would like us to focus on our individual and collective responsibility for the wickedness that snares and degenerates our nation.
Evil prevails when good people do nothing about it. You and I are responsible for what is happening in our schools. We are individually and collectively responsible for the cancer of corruption, the monster of tribalism and reprobate leadership that robs the majority to enrich the minority.
Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892–1984) wrote about the cowardice of German intellectuals following the Nazi’s rise to power and the subsequent purging of their chosen targets, group after group…
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.
The greatest hypocrisy is to know and to continue talking about corruption, tribalism and poor leadership in Kenya as the leading cause of poverty, terrorism and low standards of living yet do nothing about it. Then act helpless hoping someone else will fix the issues for us. This ‘helpless’ attitude is the highest level of defeatism, ignorance and immaturity.
Strange that a lot of us hope that our country will somehow, someday change! Nothing happens in this life by chance. Everything is caused to happen. No one will ever mould Kenya but you and me.
When you have to make a choice and don’t make it, that is in itself a choice. With time, indecision becomes decision. Your hands-off approach to the challenges facing Kenya is in itself a decision. And for-sure if there is nothing tangible and deliberate you do towards curbing corruption, destroying tribalism and shuttering the recycling of corrupt leadership, kindly shut up! Otherwise do something about it. There’s something each one of us can do about the plight that has befallen our beloved nation.
Today I give you such an opportunity to refuse to be helpless in making a positive difference. I challenge you to tag along three families to our 5th August forum, Where Are Our Fathers? I challenge you to be creative enough and drag that man who chooses to patron a night club every evening at the expense of checking his child’s homework.
I challenge you to drag that man who arrives home at the wee hours of the morning hiding behind cutting deals and fending for family at the expense of quality family time. I challenge you to tag along that dude who has confided in you about his mpango wa kando and refuse to rubber stamp trouble for another family.
Some of these people cannot see the ramifications of their actions. They are too blind to visualize the upshot their choices have on generations after them. They need help and they don’t know that they need help. You just can’t be a bystander any longer. Employ your creative imagination to ensure they join us at the family sanatorium at KICC this Friday the 5th Aug.
I put it to you that the only sure way to reform our leadership is to transform the families. No government schemes can change the hearts of men and women. By investing in the children and teens of this great nation, we can secure tomorrow’s leadership. By doing nothing about parenting today, by default, you make a choice to ruin Kenya tomorrow.
Never before in the history of our nation have we seen open invitations for Lesbian Parties, Project “X” and self declared atheists. We are being confronted by new realities. And I feel the call of God in my life as the prophet of the hour. To get back morality to the land. To instil senses in the market place. For this cause, I’m pouring out my life to this ideal like a burnt offering to rescue us from self destruction and the wrath of God.
Those of you who have been in Sense 101 Life Club long enough will recall that I wrote an article and circulated a video clip as soon as they advertised Project “X”. Graciously, the video clip went viral and reached even the authorities in the land. I’m glad I played a role in shattering Satan’s evil plans for our young adults.
We are now in a season of unprecedented arson in our schools. As I thank you dearly for sharing the article I wrote on the same widely, it should not escape your mind that I singled out poor parenting as the leading factor for indiscipline in all its facets. If the Lord tallies, history will prove me right.
Now we have a choice to make. To ignore this solemn call. To hope others will heed. Or to choose to be the agents of positive change when the call to serve came knocking at the door of our heart. We will either pay the price for good change or pay the price for a rotten neighbourhood. A neighbourhood branded by healthy families or one infested with proliferation of crime is in your hands. As the day follows the night, I guarantee you; we will all pay the price for the evil we ignore today. By ignoring what is happening around us, we allow evil to flourish.
For example, there was a case early this year of 5 teenage boys who were having rounds of sex with one teenage girl at the home balcony of one of them after a drinking spree in full view of a 7 year old boy in the next house. As an investor in that gated community, I followed the discussions closely through our whatsapp group platform. Most of them could not recall that four years ago my Mercy and I offered to form an absolutely free mentorship club for those teenagers whereby we as parents could instil strong values in them to counter the ever evolving external environment.
Either way, you will be affected by what you choose to do today about the morals of the land. Do the honourable thing. Make a deliberate phone call to three families and invite them to our forum this week Friday the 5th August 2016. No doubt in my mind that all the topics that I have taught you are extremely crucial life skills. But I honestly believe that this specific lesson on parenting is one of the most important life skills you’ll ever acquire because it influences the next generation.
Who knows that a family will be saved because of your phone call? Who knows that a man will reunite with his family because of your act of kindness? Who knows that a man lost in alcoholism will find his way home because you forwarded our articles and video clips to him? Who knows that you are the bridge between an ailing family and its stability?
Because of the liberal nature of our country, Kenya is the ripe testing ground in Africa for evil innovations. Who knows that your intervention this week by forwarding today’s Daily Challenge to a governor will go a long way in rescuing a generation and reshaping the moral fibre of a great nation?
Will you take today’s Daily Challenge and tag along 3 families to our Friday 5th August forum on “Where are Our Fathers?” or will you choose to freak into your usual comfort zone and hope change will somehow happen from another quarter?
