The works of the flesh destroys the body soul and spirit. A single act of any of these is enough to disconnect us from the presence of God. No matter the virtues of the fruit of the spirit we possess, if we fail to deal with any of these works of the flesh, it will deal with us seriously. That’s why we have to give no room for the works of the flesh to have his way because its entire path is total destruction; I prayed we won’t be destroyed in Jesus name. Read: Galatians 5, Matthew 7:13-14.

Hundreds of people can taste garri in the market without buying because it’s already exposed, cheap and valueless to the eye.
