Today's bible teaching: “Have faith in God.Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him

Mark, Chapter 11 Vs 1-25

The Entry into Jerusalem

1When they drew near to Jerusalem,a to Bethphage and Bethany at the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples2and said to them, "Go into the village opposite you, and immediately on entering it, you will find a colt tethered on which no one has ever sat. Untie it and bring it here.3If anyone should say to you, 'Why are you doing this?' reply, 'The Master has need of it and will send it back here at once.'"4So they went off and found a colt tethered at a gate outside on the street, and they untied it.5Some of the bystanders said to them, "What are you doing, untying the colt?"6They answered them just as Jesus had told them to, and they permitted them to do it.7So they brought the colt to Jesus and put their cloaks over it. And he sat on it.8Many people spread their cloaks on the road, and others spread leafy branches that they had cut from the fields.9Those preceding him as well as those following kept crying out:b

"Hosanna!

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!

10Blessed is the kingdom of our father David that is to come!

Hosanna in the highest!"


11He entered Jerusalem and went into the temple area. He looked around at everything and, since it was already late, went out to Bethany with the Twelve.c

Jesus Curses a Fig Tree.*12The next day as they were leaving Bethany he was hungry.d13Seeing from a distance a fig tree in leaf, he went over to see if he could find anything on it. When he reached it he found nothing but leaves; it was not the time for figs.14And he said to it in reply, "May no one ever eat of your fruit again!" And his disciples heard it.

Cleansing of the Temple.*15They came to Jerusalem,e and on entering the temple area he began to drive out those selling and buying there. He overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who were selling doves.16He did not permit anyone to carry anything through the temple area.17Then he taught them saying, "Is it not written:

'My house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples'?

But you have made it a den of thieves."f

18The chief priests and the scribes came to hear of it and were seeking a way to put him to death, yet they feared him because the whole crowd was astonished at his teaching.19When evening came, they went out of the city.g

The Withered Fig Tree.20h Early in the morning, as they were walking along, they saw the fig tree withered to its roots.21Peter remembered and said to him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered."22Jesus said to them in reply, "Have faith in God.23Amen, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be lifted up and thrown into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it shall be done for him.i24Therefore I tell you, all that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours.j25When you stand to pray, forgive anyone against whom you have a grievance, so that your heavenly Father may in turn forgive you your transgressions."

JAMB, NYSC MOVE AGAINST FRAUDULENT PRACTICES

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) and the National Youth Service Corps have resolved to step up measures to check fraudulent practices by prospective corps members.

This was the subject of discussion during the visit by the JAMB Registrar, Professor Ishaq Oloyede, to the Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, at the NYSC National Directorate Headquarters.

Professor Oloyede noted that applications for change of date of birth being forwarded to JAMB were mostly from over-aged persons who want to get mobilized for the national service.

He explained that since his assumption of duty as Registrar, JAMB had been taking measures to block sharps practices, while also seeking enhanced inter-agency cooperation in that regard.

In his remarks, the NYSC Director-General, Brigadier General Sulaiman Kazaure, described JAMB as a critical stakeholder in the NYSC, and welcomed the agency's renewed commitment to eliminating sharp practices.

Kazaure said a bilateral committee would be set to address all the areas of concern raised by the Registrar.

He thanked the JAMB Management for the cordial relationship with the NYSC.

Mrs. Bolanle Ambode flagged-off the mass de-worming exercise for 60,000 primary school pupils in Lagos(Photos)

Mrs. Ambode charges parents to maintain clean environment

Wife of the Lagos State Governor, Mrs. Bolanle Ambode has charged parents in the State to encourage hand-washing among their children as well as maintain a clean and healthy environment in order to prevent them from contracting infections.

The Lagos First Lady gave the charge while speaking at Maryland, lkeja during the flag-off of the mass de-worming exercise for primary school pupils organized by the State's Ministry of Youth and Social Development.

She noted that worm parasites contributed significantly to malnutrition in children by stealing the nutrients they ingest, leading to dangerous health conditions like severe anaemia, stunted growth and low immunity amongst others.

According to her, "De-worming children helps them to develop well and boost their learning capability. This is a great advantage that cannot be ignored because good academic performance will to a large extent determine the future of a child".

Speaking further, Mrs. Ambode reminded teachers of their responsibility towards educating children on healthy habits for good growth and development.

In her contribution, the Commissioner for Youth and Social Development, Mrs. Uzamat Akinbile-Yusuf, disclosed that over 60,000 pupils from various primary schools in the State would be de-wormed using WHO-recommended drugs.

She revealed that worm infection had been identified as one of the major challenges to healthy growth and development of children, which the human system did not have the natural means of combating.

According to her, "Worms infect more than one-third of the world's population, with the most intense infections in children and the poor".

She promised that the current administration would continue to take proactive measures that would assist healthy development and robust welfare of children in the State.
