Waking up thanking Jesus for the gift of life. Truly, there are so many very good things to thank Him for. The free oxygen. The good health. The one sack of rice, we run out of it yesterday and viola, we get a sack of rice. Yahoo. The gas which we also run out too yesterday. The smiling sun. The alarm clock which are the roosters of our father. The kalamay from Bohol from Fen and the slice bread from my love, yey!!!!. The freeing time to stay longer in bed. All these are touches of the ONE greater than myself, JESUS.
In all its beauty in tranquility, I read His Word, and boom, WISDOM. You Ecclesiastes opened my eyes to life, fun, and commitment.
“Ecclesiastes 7:18 says it is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other. Whoever fears God will avoid all extremes.”
Isn’t it wisdom? In our
life and in search for significance, we try to give our commitments
to everyone who is asking for it. We think that by saying no, we might lose the people in the process. On the contrary we have also forgotten that in our effort to please people by virtue of saying yes, we neglect the MOST IMPORTANT – JESUS.
We commit in church and said Hi to pastors, but miss Jesus. We do Bible studies but we are not reading the Bible. We look so religious but lose ourselves in the process.
It is the same way with our careers. We become jack of all trades, master of none. We do so many things that we don’t master anything.
The Word of God says that if we fear Him which means we have a deep respect of Him, we will avoid all extremes.
In other words, what we do is a result of whom and what we fear.
