Roy Angell once told a beautiful story about a widow during the First World War who lost her only son and her husband. One night while this woman's grief was so terribly severe, she had a dream. An angel stood before her and said, "You might have your son back again for ten minutes. What ten minutes would you choose? Would you have him back as a little baby, a dirty-faced little boy, a schoolboy just starting to school, a student just completing high school, or as the young soldier who marched off so bravely to war?" The mother thought a few minutes and then, in her dream, told the angel she would choose none of those times. "Let me have him back," she said, "when as a little boy, in a moment of anger, he doubled up his fists and shook them at me and said, ’I hate you! I hate you!'' Continuing to address the angel, she said: "In a little while his anger subsided and he came back to me, his dirty little face stained with tears, and put his arms around me. He said, ‘Momma, I'm sorry I was so naughty. I promise never to be bad again and I love you with all my heart.’ Let me have him back then," the mother sobbed. "I never loved him more than at that moment when he changed his attitude and came back to me." This is exactly how God feels about each of us.

Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness, come before His presence with songs. Know ye that the Lord is God; he made us , we belong to him, we are his people the flock of his sheepflock. Come within his gates giving thanks,to his courts
singing praise, give thanks to him and bless his name.(Psalm 100:1-4)

“What reason would we have to commit murder when we say that women who induce abortions are murderers, and will have to give account of it to God? For the same person would not regard the fetus in the womb as a living thing and therefore an object of God’s care [and then kill it].
-Athenagoras of Athens (Legatio35)

Statistical research has revealed that tribalism which is the ill will of self-reformation is blowing in the life of many Nigerians and it is occasioned by the colossal of wrong orientations, false ideas, false conception of things, misplacement of values, lack of basic formation, absence of fundamental home training, ignorance, loss the sense of sin and distorted value syndrome. But William Hoard in his book “Thought of Achievement” (1998, P. 90), once opined that “very much of what we call progress of things today consist in getting rid of false ideas, false conception of things and in taking a point of view that enables us to see the principles, ideas and things in right direction”. Thus, it makes reference to a positive psychological renewal which we may call self-reformation.
