Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 27 March 2024 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: Bribery – Don’t Give; Don’t Take

TOPIC: Bribery – Don’t Give; Don’t Take (Seeds Of Destiny 27 March 2024)

SCRIPTURE: He that walketh righteously, and speaketh uprightly; he that despiseth the gain of oppressions, that shaketh his hands from holding of bribes, that stoppeth his ears from hearing of blood, and shutteth his eyes from seeing evil;
He shall dwell on high: his place of defence shall be the munitions of rocks: bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure. Isaiah 33:15,16.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: We live in a generation where bribery has eaten deep into the fabrics of society

Seeds Of Destiny For Today 2024 MESSAGE:

Our anchor Scripture reveals that the bread of the man who refuses to give or take a bribe is guaranteed and his water is sure.

However, it is unfortunate to know that we live in a generation where bribery has eaten deep into the fabrics of society. Someone expects to be given money or a gift before doing what is ordinarily their job. As if they forget to realise that every form of inducement is evil before God.

Some people, especially public officials, give out contracts to contractors with an agreement to get certain amount of money back from the contractors after those contracts are executed. That is a terrible practice. Some even make demands for money before the contract is awarded.

Some government officials who work with regulatory authorities usually take advantage of the organizations they supervise. When they go for regular supervisory assignments, they expect the organizations being supervised to give them certain amount of money before they can write good reports about them.

For instance, when a school which has already met all requirements for accreditation is being supervised, the supervisory team still expects the management of the school to bribe them before accrediting the school. That culture must die!
That is why many countries are in a mess today. The people who expect to receive such money are in the same class with those who encourage them by it giving to them. This is because if one person says, “NO”, and another person says, “NO”, and a third person says, “NO”, to the request for bribe, the system would begin to change for good. What to do if such evil demands are made on you is to ask the people making them to bring official receipts that can be acknowledged and presented to the authorities later to show that such money was collected.

Beloved, make up your mind not to indulge in any form of bribery and corruption. Don’t give, and don’t take.

REMEMBER THIS: We live in a generation where bribery has eaten deep into the fabrics of society.


  1. Make up your mind not to indulge in any form of bribery and corruption.
  2. Ask God for the grace not to be carried away or submerged in the systemic bribery of society.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from any form of bribery and corruption in society. I receive the grace not to follow or be carried away by the corruption of society, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.


QUOTE: What limits the vulture? It is clear: the vulture enjoys corruption while the eagle has no time for decadence. It seems to me that the vulture enjoys eating rotten flesh – the rottener the better; the ‘smeller’ the better. Culled from the book, “WHO ARE YOU?” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY READING: 1 Chronicles 12-14.

AMAZING FACT: In addition to smelling, trumpeting, drinking and grabbing things, Elephants can use their trunks to breathe (like a snorkel) in deep water. In this way, they can swim fairly long distances.

DECLARATION/WORD: Every taste for illicit money dies in your life today in Jesus’ Name.
