Watching the world react to 2014 I am finding it amazing and disconcerting that some parts of humanity has determined to change themselves and the world in other parts strive to repeat old patterns and cycles. We are interconnected to each other on this planet whether we acknowledge it or not, so the joy one feels when surmounting obstacles we also feel that elation. By the same when our brethren choose to repeat old cycles of pain, we also feel that pain. More so if we have just come from that cycle of pain and privation and have moved or started to move beyond it. With the violence in the streets in Sydney, the incandescent dislike of cyclists, Syria continuing a civil war, unrest reviving in Ireland, the scars of Iraq and Afghanistan, the conservatism in Russia and the rising hard conservatism in Western Democracies; it becomes clear that some cycles still retain a strong influence over the populace. Whilst tempting it is to join people in the shrinking circle of despair, it is important to know that t ...

"It is the sandstorm that shape the stone statues of the desert. It is the struggles of life that form a person's character" - Native American Proverb
Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. (Psalms 138:7) This psalmist affirmed his faith in God, who preserved his life in troubled times. God had a purpose for his life and had delivered him from his enemies. His final prayer was that God would not forsake him since he was the “work” of the Almighty’s hands. God made him and valued him—and us. We are living in very troubled times and the Bible tells us that times will get even more troubling. The very reason that we are living in these troubled times is that we have turned ourselves away from God to serve other gods that are the lesser gods of the world (fame, fortune, possessions, power), anything that takes our attention from Jesus Christ, has become a god to us. We are like the Hebrew children of old, we are a wicked lot and unless we ask for and receive a “revival”, we shall suffer the consequences. You see, the ...

Here's a Native American Proverb which we believe holds truth: "Tell me a fact and I’ll learn. Tell me a truth and I’ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever." So, here's a small story which emphasizes on the fact why we at Revenue Times believe in a close-knitted community and the betterment of the community as a whole. Okay, let us imagine a dramatic scenario here; it was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold. The hedgehogs, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm. This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions. After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their comp ...

An old Native American proverb tells about a tribe with 100 strong braves. When it was time to store up food for winter all 100 worked hard and stored up plenty of meat, nuts, and berries for winter. There was even some extra to share with tribes that only had 20 braves. However, some of the braves said, "Why should we work and see the fruit of our labor go to other braves?" So that Fall only 75 of the braves worked hard...but still, there was some left over. So the next year another 25 more said, "Why should we work if we do not have to?" And only 50 prepared for winter. The winter was easy and they survived...but with no excess. However, the next winter was long and hard. The food ran out early in the winter. Many of the People died. Many of the People said, "Why were we not prepared?" The wise chief said, "50 worked hard and were prepared. 50 did not work. Therefore, there were 100 that were not prepared for the long, cold, winter."
