Many fast food establishments in the world operate a franchise system, a concept that is very common in the industry. A parent company, such as McDonald’s or Mr. Biggs, could permit its franchisees to operate branded restaurants in exchange for a franchise fee or a share of the revenue. Franchisees are supplied with uniform ingredients by the parent company or its suppliers and are typically obliged to follow strict operational guidelines. Though many busy people take their meals regularly in fast food restaurants, there is a growing concern that fast foods may not be healthy to the body after all.

“…But godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.”-1 Timothy 4:8

A wise man once said, “Wise people choose today what will make them happy tomorrow. Foolish people choose today only what will make them happy today.” Many are short-sighted in their choices. They think of the pleasures for the now, and forget about the consequences of their actions in the future.

Pastor Faith Oyedepo: Monday August 3, 2015 Daily Devotional – Treat your spouse as yourself

Topic: Treat your spouse as yourself [Monday August 3, 2015]

“For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:” -Ephesians 5:29

Everyone has value for themselves. That is why even a child knows when he or she is been disrespected or maltreated. It is this value you place on yourself that makes you know when a particular behaviour projected on you by someone else is not acceptable to you or not.

Topic: Jesus’ Teaching On Adultery [Monday August 3, 2015]

Text: Matthew 5:27-32

KEY VERSE:“But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart”(Matthew 5:28).

Latimer was raised to the bishopric of Worcester in the reign of Henry VIII. It was the custom of those days for each of the bishops to make presents to the king on New Year’s Day. Latimer went with the rest of his brethren to make the usual offering; but, instead of a purse of gold, he presented the king with a New Testament in which was a leaf doubled down to this passage, “Whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”

Pastor Faith Oyedepo: Sunday August 2, 2015 Daily Devotional – The right Atmosphere

opic: The right Atmosphere [Sunday August 2, 2015]

“Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.”-James 3:13

Quite a number of couples feel they are having a conversation with their spouse, when all they really are doing is giving out commands and/or instructions they believe must be adhered to. When handling an issue, they say “can we talk?” However, in actuality, they mean “just listen.” You may or may not be guilty of this, but it’s very common and is one of the major causes of communication failure in the home.

Topic: Don’t Forget! [Saturday 01 August, 2015]

Text: Exodus 16:32-36

Key Verse: “And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna, until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan” (Exodus 16:35).

The human nature is evil, primed to acts of depravity. This is why it requires a real new birth experience to turn this obstinate nature around. It is a pity that tons of theories and concepts about civilising the human element has always turned out a pipe dream, an excursion into failure.
