I LOVE MY FAMILY AND I CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT THEM, BUT I AM READY TO LOSE MY LIFE FOR THE GOOD OF OTHERS AND MY COUNTRY

A lot of people like to say, “think about your wife, think about your children, think about Kiya, etc”.

I sacrificed everything to get my wife and I can’t live without her, but that will not stop me from sacrificing for other people who need my help including my Country.

My children are a gift to me and I want to see them grow into successful adults but that will not stop me from fighting for other children to have a life like my children.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, amen, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains just a grain of wheat; but if it dies, it produces much fruit.” John 12:24

Jesus speaks directly about the need to die to yourself so that your life will bear abundant good fruit. But of course this is easy to say, hard to live.

Why is this hard to live? What is hard about it? The hard part begins with the initial acceptance of the fact that dying to yourself is necessary and good. So let’s look at what that means.

We begin with the analogy of a grain of wheat. That grain must detach from the head and fall to the ground. This image is one of complete detachment.

That single grain of wheat must “let go” of everything. This image tells us that if we want God to work miracles in us, we must be ready and willing to let go of all to which we are attached.

It means we enter into a true abandonment of our will, our preferences, our desires and our hopes. This can be very hard to do because it can be very hard to understand.

It can be hard to understand that detaching from all that we want and desire is actually good and is actually the way that we become prepared for the new and much more glorious life awaiting us through the transformation of grace.

Death to ourselves means we trust God more than the things we are attached to in this life. It means we believe that God’s plan is infinitely better than any plan we can come up with.

When the grain of wheat does die and enters the ground, it fulfills its purpose and grows into so much more. It is transformed into abundance.

However, one can only be ready to die to oneself if you spend time in prayers to see things from a spiritual realm.

Be ready to sacrifice for others and you will be shocked how God will bless you.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY AND REMEMBER TO SPEND TIME WITH THE LORD.

  1. HAHAHAHAHA. KOMA KWENA. JUST LOSE YOUR LIFE. NO ONE WILL REMEMBER YOUR PERSONAL STOMACH FIGHT. YOU LEAVE IN AN IVORY TOWER. YOUR RANTING HAS ZERO IMPACT.

  2. WHEN YOU ARE FOREVER ON THE WRONG SIDE OF MAKING DECISIONS AND FOREVER HURTING INNOCENT PEOPLE, GOD LEAVES YOU. THE GOOD THINGS YOU MAY SAY, GOD IS NOT IN IT MR. TAYALI. THE GOOD LORD MAY TAKE YOU TODAY NOT MANY PEOPLE IN ZAMBIA WILL CARE. IN FACT MANY WILL BE HAPPY.

  3. For your own information not everyone agrees with this government on everything but no need to be such sulky and hateful. You may realise this very late but I can advise that there is no value addition in all what you are doing Frank.

  4. FROM MY TEACHING AND REALITY, A THIEF, LIAR AND MURDERER WHEN S/HE DIES PEOPLE CELEBRATE AND FEEL FREE BECAUSE THERE WILL BE NO TROUBLE FROM HER/HIM. THIS EXACTLY HOW THE MAJORITY ZAMBIANS HOW THEY CAN FEEL IF TAYALI DIES. IT IS TAYALI WHO CAUSED NSAMA AND MULENGA TO DIE. TAYALI MAKES MONEY THROUGH HATING OTHER TRIBES AND RACES AND WHO PAY HIM ARE PF OFFICIALS. HH DOES NOT PAY CRIMINALS TO KILL INNOCENT PEOPLE BUT PFs DO.

  5. None of the people who have commented has supported Tayali. A reasonable and sensible person would ask himself why? It only goes to show that one does not make sense but a person without sense will not come to his senses which he does not possess.

  6. This is complete plagiarism from paragraph 4, copied word for word from a Catholic daily reading and reflection for today the 10th of August 2022 – American website. It is in today’s commemoration of St Lawrence, a 3rd century deacon who was martyred after he was asked by a Roman Prefect to surrender all the church’s treasures and he brought the poor and the sick to the Prefect who became so angry that he sentenced St Lawrence to death.

    Kwena ka Tayali kapuba ichine chine! You can fool some people some time but not all the people all the time – I don’t know who originally said this. Kaya nga ni Bob Marley?

    Tayali is not prepared to die for anyone. Ishi nishilya inkoko shi ifwilafye and are thrown pa chishala!

  7. Noted with thanks. But please be advised someone more worthy , truthful , holy and righteous already died for us. His name is Jesus. Look it up he died for your soul as well. Your death we don’t want upon any of us. Keep your life buddy your kids need you more and be accountable to God.

    If on the other hand you want to quench your thirst to share some news, which we have come to understand is your talent, please go ahead. We are ready hear you and make up our own minds about the facts.

    Go for it.

  8. You may call it dying for others but it’s not. Like what you did where you got government documents and exposed them to the entire world even before investigations are concluded in the matter. You forget that you have risked the lives and jobs of the individual who gave you those documents in the first place. And you call that dying for others? If you get picked up and spend nights in jail. Reflect on your approach to life mr chilufya. Ni pano tuli

    • You are absolutely right Sir. Why is this open illegality left to continue. This man has revealed documents which civil servants pledge to keep confidential for a number of years. It is action attracts punitive action if caught.

      Allowing this continued leakage of sensitive documents is abating crime and should be seriously visited. Mr. Tatyali by providing us with these documents is an acomplice with whoever stole government documents and exposed them illegally to the public.

      We need to curb this bad behaviour and stop this rot or else we are endorsing very wicked people to undermine this government. Sanity must reign. We hope the ACC will also inquire who is leaking this important information.

      Being a whistle blower is another thing and commendable. But doing so wrongly and exposing sensitive documents is wrong and should be treated as a crime.
