The pressure of workplace values on our loyalty to God

Breaking free from witchcraft curses

Spouse (unbeliever)

Everyone suffers in sibling favouritism

Parents and guardians will normally pay more attention to certain qualities in their children for different reasons. Even when they try their best to love all their children well, their subconscious biases will manifest and lead to unintended outcomes. Unfortunately, favouritism breeds comparison, guilt, and insecurity in children over time. Whether favoured...
