Tips to Pastoral Counselling
Below are a couple of dozen short tips to Pastoral Counselling that might be useful for you!

Am I A Computer

Information technology, information technology and more information technology! Students leaving school are missing something useful if they do not have any idea of how computers function. The more educated ooze with excitement over this increasingly developed technology; the less educated hold them in awe and wonder. In Chinese, the literal translation for a computer is "Electric Brain". Yet, the real brain lies in the programmer. If the computer fails to follow the programme fed into it, it is either spoilt of infected with virus. It has ceased to fulfil the role for which it has been designed.

In a similar manner, the Creator made human beings to fellowship with Him, identify with His mission on the planet earth and be the means through which He gathers back His children. However, we have failed Him to the extent that we often fail to recognise our dilemma or refuse to acknowledge it when the fact is pointed out to us. Are we really worse than a lifeless computer? Is there hope for us? I don't really want to obey God like a computer obeys its programmer...but HOW?

Jesus said,"...but the world must learn that I love the Father...I do exactly what the Father has commanded Me."
John 14:31

Here lies the secret of willing obedience for my Master out of love for Him too. A computer, however, can never obey its programmer out of love

For Meditation and Prayer:
John 14:15
John 21:15-17
