Not by works

Sometimes being a christian for a long time causes us to accept God’s grace for others but not ourselves because we feel like we should be the first born and not the prodigal son - we should have had this christianity thing down by now.

African Brands should also use photography as a powerful reminder of their corporate entity and tell their own stories."
