I woke only to realise that I had a son – shame!
All this happened in the 11th chapter of my life (2 Samuel)
Then all of a sudden, Solomon was born as a result of that night party
I started strong – ordinarily nobody who knew me would think that another Goliath would rise up and slay me
Why? because I had slain one earlier on in my teenage years
This Goliath is far greater than the one I killed in the flesh.
This Goliath is called lust.
It’s still ruining many lives today
Guess what
My successor and son who was deemed to be the wisest man on earth, also fell for this 11th chapter too… (1 Kings 11).
Beloved, what is that besetting sin you’ve been neglecting?
Saying, it doesn’t matter?
Look at David – he lost his relationship with God in chapter 11 (2 Samuel), same happened to his son in chapter 11 (of 1 Kings).
You’ve heard of the 11th hour, right?
What is that 11th hour sin that always comes to your life, when no one is around?
Or is it that you have this particular habit when you’re on a trip, or you’re on holiday?

Please remember:
“Sin will take you farther than you wanted to go.
Sin will keep you longer than you wanted to stay.
Sin will cost you more than you wanted to pay.” – Steve Farrar

What’s your besetting sin?
Kill it before it kills you.



Hello! I am Emmanuel Omenayam Ashibuogwu, but you can call me SALT. I am a Christian writer and lover of youths. My passion is to see God's word transform lives. Time management, personal development and purposeful living are my core interests. My goal for writing is not literary or artistic achievement, but to promote spiritual fruitfulness and an irresistible devotion to our purpose for being on this earth. I am a graduate of the prestigious University of Ibadan, Ibadan, Nigeria. A geographer and Urban Planner by profession. I can act different roles in dramas (I hope you are not surprised… lol, well that’s a story for another day). I love to teach and mentor youths through His grace; I am also good at marketing. I advertise, write and of course, PRAY! I would love to meet you all as your lives are being touched for the better, but if we never meet, I pray that my writing would impart vision to your heart, while strengthening your foundation in Christ. See you at the top! You are welcome to my world!!!
