Obstacles to Women in Business in Kenya are common and a number of interventions have been made by donors and the Government.Women Entrepreneurs in Kenya are very essential to economic growth because of their capacity to generate employment. However most businesses owned by women could contribute more than their current worth. Significant research shows that countries that fail to address gender barriers are losing out on significant economic growth. Without increased attention to the gender dimensions of economic development, Kenya is therefore unlikely to meet its growth targets. This therefore demonstrates that addressing gender barriers in Kenya could generate significant economic growth for the country. The Kenyan government recognizes that Women in Business in Kenya have not been on an equal footing when it comes to their access to opportunities and assets but it has yet to effectively address the barriers facing women in business.

Forgiveness is something that our Lord Jesus Christ demonstrated to the whole world. When all mankind disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden, they died spiritually. The Lord had warned them in advance that when they east of the tree of knowledge of good and evil they would surely die. Out of his mercy, the lord visited Adam and Eve in the Garden and promised a solution through which all mankind would receive forgiveness. This solution was the offspring of the woman. Let us now discuss the topic of forgiveness referring to both the old and the New Testament. Read more in Business Training in Kenya.
Forgiveness in the Old Testament
Due to human being’s sinful nature, man has time and again done evil in the sight of the Lord and was in desperate need for forgiveness. When the children of Israel were delivered from Egypt, they were exited and praised the Lord for his Mighty power in delivering them. Before it was long they fell into unbelief and complain to God and to Moses. The Lord showed forgiveness to them and did not destroy all of them in the wilderness.
At the foot of Mount Sinai, they worshiped Idols when Moses stayed long on top of the mountain with the Lord. The Lord would have killed all of them but he forgave them when Moses interceded for them.
The people of Nineveh fasted in deep repentance and the Lord showed his forgiveness on a people who had been too wicked that the Lord had vowed to destroy them.
During the time of Judges, we see Israelites doing evil before the eyes of the Lord again and again. Whenever the Covenant people sinned against God, He handed them over to their enemies to discipline them and the moment they repented turning away from their wicked ways the Lord was always forgiving them.

True thanks giving come from the heart of a believer in Christ who acknowledges the sovereignty of God. To explore this we are going to refer to 1Samuel 2:6-9. It states that the Lord brings death and makes alive; he brings down to the grave and rises up. The Lord sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts, he raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap; he seats them with princes and has them inherit the throne of honor. For the foundation of the earth are the Lord’s; upon them he has set the world. Below are some of the major reasons why a true Christian should always have thanks giving in his or her heart.

Thanks Giving For God’s Sovereign Choice
God’s children should always have true thanks giving before the Lord. At a time when they were dead spiritually, God chose them unconditionally from among all other people of the world. This does not depend on man’s desire or efforts, but on God’s mercy. (Romans9:1-29). God therefore has mercy on whom he wants to have mercy, and he hardens whom he wants to harden. No one has the right to resist the will of the Lord. Creatures do not have the capacity to talk back to their creator. Those the Lord chose, he did so before the creation of the world, Ephesians 1:4. We who are born again really need to be thankful for the Lord chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holly and blameless in his sight.
Thanks Giving For The Lord’s Predestination
The saved need to realize the need to always have true thanks giving for the Lord predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, with accordance with his pleasure and his will to the praise of his glorious grace which he has given us in the one he loves (Ephesians 1:5-6).
Thanks giving for Redemption
In Christ, we have redemption through his blood. We did not work or do anything to merit our redemption. It is purely by God’s grace and thus all believers in Christ have to have unending thanks giving. Mark 10:45; say that Christ did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many. In this redemption, we have forgiveness of sin, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding (Ephesians 1:7-8).
