Be YOU

Are you Rich physically or Poor Spiritually?

One said, “I never met a rich man who was happy, but I have only very occasionally met a poor man who did not want to become a rich man.”

Most of us would agree that money can’t make us happy, but we might like to have more so we can be sure.

King Solomon’s net worth has been estimated at more than two trillion US dollars. Although he was very wealthy, he knew that money had great limitations. Proverbs 8 is based on his experience and offers “Wisdom’s Call” to all people. “I raise my voice to all mankind. My mouth speaks what is true” (vv. 4–7). “Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her” (vv. 10–11).

Wisdom says, “My fruit is better than fine gold; what I yield surpasses choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice, bestowing a rich inheritance on those who love me and making their treasuries full” (vv. 19–21).

Wisdom in Proverbs is not simply one who possesses a masterful mind. It’s also a matter of the heart; it’s a moral quality. Wise persons are those who fear the Lord and subsequently make choices that honor God, oneself, and others. The wise person is one who is skilled in godly living.

Reflection:

As we venture in life ‘di maiiwasan na lage tayong busy sa paghahanap ng trabaho para magkaPERA. Natatandaan ko pa during my high school days, bakit ka nag-aaral?

Mostly, sasagot tayo na para makapagtrabaho,kumita ng pera at tumulong sa pamilya.

We are very focus about earthly treasures that we forgot about heavenly treasure. Kahit isang oras ng iyong buhay ay pinagkait mo nga sa KANYA. We became selfish, iniisip lang natin ay yung sarili natin. “Paano ba lalago itong negosyo ko? Paano ako yayaman.”

Friend, let me tell you, invest in God not in temporary things

Take charge. Kaya mo ‘yan

Bago ka magdesisyon, try to look at the bigger umbrella. Isipin mo yung mga taong maaapektuhan. Kung susuko ka na? Paano na ‘yung mga taong humuhugot ng lakas at inspirasyon mula sa’yo?

Isipin mo na lang na isa yang pagsubok na ibinigay ni Lord para itest kung gaano ka nga ba Katatag sa Kanya. Kung susuko ka na para mo na rin SIYAng sinukuan.

Responding to God’s Leading

Do events from our past make it hard to go forward? The first time Moses tried to stand up for his people, he ended up killing an Egyptian slave master and had to run for his life (Exodus 2:11–15). That moment may have prepared him for what he was about to experience. He’d seen how badly he had messed up on his own. Now he was about to see what God could do.

What about us? Have we tripped over ourselves enough, even in trying to help others, that we’re ready to see what God can do through us as we respond to His lead?

Ilang beses ka na bang nagpatawad?

You may say, ” marami na ‘di ko na nga mabilang.”

“Paulit-ulit nalang. Nakakasawa na.”
Peter asked Jesus, “Lord, how many times shall I forgive [someone] who sins against me? Up to seven times?” (Matthew 18:21).

In that day, if you forgave a person three times, you were considered magnanimous(very mabait). So Peter must have thought he was a super saint to forgive an offender seven times. Jesus corrected him, “Not seven times, but seventy-seven times” (v. 22). Jesus is saying that when it comes to forgiving another, you can’t keep score. We never reach a limit when we can say we have forgiven enough. Although forgiveness doesn’t excuse an offense, we can choose to “be kind and compassionate to one another, [forgive] each other, just as in Christ God forgave [us]” (Ephesians 4:32).
Bless those who curse you and pray for those who mistreat you.

Is there someone who needs your forgiveness today, again?

Trust Him

Trust Him no matter what. Marami ka mang pinagdadaanan lately, surrender everything to Him. Maaamaze ka na lang sa magiging resulta nito. If God is with us, who can be against us?

To the person reading this

Feeling stressed lately? Take it as a challenge. Why that problem was given to you? Because God knows you can do it. Mahirap man maging positibo. Kaya mo ‘yan. Ikaw pa! Malalampasan mo rin yan. Nakayanan mo nga dati, ngayon ka pa susuko. ‘Wag kang mag-alala andyan si Lord para tulungan ka. Tiwala lang. Matatapos din yan.
