Lately I seldom watch news, though every now and then I try to browse little news on the web to learn about the latest happenings in the world. And per acquired information in the internet, the trending topics on the list this month are: The Typhoon Sendong, The feast of Nazarene, The impeachment of Chief Justice Corona, The war in middle east country, The economic twist in Europe and America, Hollywood showdown and more. From the listed topics I was asking myself, what is the end of this news these days? Is it for the gain of some people behind, Is it for pride, Is it for fame, for money, for power, for honor or for merely business? That I do not know but surely few gifted wise men knows what will be the end of this.
The fact in our lives today is that we do not know what tomorrow would bring us to. And this fact reminds me every time. We do not own our time and it is only through the grace of God that we are still breathing to now. So many the plans in our heart yet at the end, it is still God's purpose will be revealed. I have come up to this write ups because of the messages that I am receiving from the situation and experiences evolving in my community. I was thinking, maybe God is allowing this to happen because of the wickedness in the land. I am not being religious here but just reasoning on those events rationally. And I believe every situation; experiences would teach us something inside. I was ashamed with myself when from somewhere whisper on me, saying- hey why so busy pressuring yourself to fit in this world, so trying hard to follow the requirement of the world, how about the requirement of your creator and savior ? What is your plan?
I have so many plans, if we will talk about planning. I am good when it comes to that matter, but poor in implementation. I also am informed of God’s power and His wrath and I am also instructed and guided of the things that would give glory and honor to my creator. But even if I know the formula, still I disobey and go my way. I am no good I broke promises and rules I am selfish because of my ambitions.
Learning the news these days, with my mind judging.My apology to those I have nailed on public because of their flaws. I too, have countless flaws; only it is not broadcast in public, but my God knows those offenses I have incurred. Throwing stones on their faces is like telling me – hey who are you to judged them. Are you God? Are you clean? Do some reflection instead. Why not pray for those men in trials, that the truth will set them free and least be humiliating them is your motive. As the lord God says - Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, and let not your heart be glad when he stumbles, lest the Lord see it and be displeased, and turn away his anger from him. (Proverbs 24:17-18)
