Today’s Word

BE A VOICE

Proverbs 31:8 (CEB)

Speak out on behalf of the voiceless, and for the rights of all who are vulnerable.

May mga taong api, kawawa, dukha, mahiyain, walang tinig, hindi marunong, mangmang na nangangailangan ng isang tinig na siyang magsasalita para sa kanila, na magpapaliwanag at maninindigan para sa kanilang panig, at magtuturo ng mga karapatang dapat na tinatamasa at tinatanggap nila. Be a voice. Be their voice. Kaya, mayroon tayong mga advocates, lawyers, law enforcers, at iba pang mga spokesperson na nagpapahiram ng kanilang karunungan at tinig para sa kapakanan ng iba. Nagbibigay sila ng mga walang bayad na payo sa mga nangangailangan nito. Para yung hindi alam ng marami tungkol, halimbawa, sa batas na pinagdalubhasaan nila ay mapakinabangan.

AFFECTED KA BA?

Esther 3:5

Haman was furious to learn that Mordecai refused to kneel down and honor him.

People we hate or dislike very strongly make deep impressions on us. That’s one of the reasons why it should be dealt with. Malalim ang ukit sa ating alaala, puso, at isip na ginagawa ng mga taong ayaw na ayaw natin. They leave a mark or a dent in our psyche. They hold our memory and attention. They dominate our thoughts. Ayaw man natin, nagiging parang amo natin ang mga taong kinaiinisan natin dahil napapaikot nila tayo. Nararamdaman natin ang galit at naaapektuhan nila ang ating buhay. When you hate someone, you don’t have your own course, you are taken to the left or to the right. Pag may kinakamuhian tayo, lason sa loob ng utak natin yung pangalan at alaala ng taong yun.

ENJOY

Ecclesiastes 11:9

Be cheerful and enjoy life while you are young! Do what you want and find pleasure in what you see…

Hindi tayo dapat nagi-guilty pag nag-eenjoy tayo sa mga pinaghirapan natin. Madalas kasing nasusumbatan ng iba na naghihirap na nga ang bayan ay nagiging maluho pa. E teka, naghirap naman tayo, di ba? Hindi na ba natin pepremyuhan ang sarili? Kung naghihirap nga ang bansa, bakit naman kailangang madamay tayo sa hirap kung kaya naman nating mag-enjoy? Hanggang tayo ay kumikita, gumagawa ng mabuti, tumutulong sa kapwa at tumutupad sa tungkulin, masama bang mag-enjoy?

MINIMIZE PAIN

1 Chronicles 4:10 (NIV)

Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “…keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.” And God granted his request.

Sasandali lang ang buhay. At dahil dito, we must minimize pain. Paliitin, pakontiin, at padaliin yung mga panahon na mayroon tayong nararamdamang sakit. What brings about pain in life? Conflict. Hindi dapat tinatagalang mayroon tayong kalaban, kainitan ng ulo at kakumpetensya. Either we harmonize or avoid them. Trouble also brings pain. Uubusin pa ba natin ang buhay para sa mga awayan? Why not make peace instead? Matutong magparaya at magpatalo para walang laban.

ATTRACTION

Matthew 7:7

Ask, and you will receive. Search, and you will find. Knock, and the door will be opened for you.

It all starts with people. It does not start with heaven because heaven has already started when we were created and the basic laws of the universe were given. Reverse that instruction: What you receive is what you ask for. What you find is what you search for. What opens to you is what you knock at. It all starts and ends with you.

MAKE PEACE WITH GOD

Hebrews 9:27

We die only once, and then we are judged.

Hindi tayo sure sa napakaraming bagay na nangyayari at mangyayari pa sa mga planeta, pero may isang bagay tayong siguradong mangyayari: Mamamatay tayong lahat at haharap tayo sa Dios. Kaya mahalagang pinaghahandaan natin ang bagay na ito. Paano?

MAG-DETOX

John 11:33, 35

When Jesus saw that Mary and the people with her were crying, he was terribly upset…Jesus started crying.

Maraming tao ang maagang namamatay kasi hindi sila marunong magbulalas ng kanilang gustong ibulalas. Lalo na ang mga kalalakihan na hindi makapagpakita ng tunay damdamin, hindi makaiyak at nagtitigas-tigasan. But dignity is showing and expressing feelings of happiness, sadness, and even fears. Hindi nababawasan ang pagkalalaki kung nagpapakita ng damdamin.

SIMULA AT WAKAS

Ecclesiastes 7:8

Something completed is better than something just begun…

Siempre, gusto sana nating mabuhay man lang sana ng seventy years, seventy-five or eighty na, bonus pa. Pero kapag niloob na ng Dios at yan ay nakatakda, luwagan ang dibdib sapagkat kahit sikipan mo at pigilan mo, wala ka na ring magagawa. Nangyayari rin. So bakit makikipaglaban sa isang kapangyarihang hindi mo naman kayang salungatin?

THE BODY AS PRISON

Genesis 3:22

The LORD said, “These people now know the difference between right and wrong, just as we do. But they must not be allowed to eat fruit from the tree that lets them live forever.”

Death sets man free. Nagpapalaya ang kamatayan. Pinapalaya mula sa katawan, sa alabok, o sa lupa ang espiritu ng Dios na unang-una ay ibinigay sa tao, subalit dahil sa kasalanan, nakulong sa isang katawan na hindi karapat-dapat pagsidlan nang matagal. Sin has turned our temple, meaning our body, into a prison. Dapat sana ang katawan ng tao na nilikha ng Dios ay maging bintana, pinto, daluyan, at daan nya patungo sa Paraiso. All the senses of the body were given by God to be our entry point into a sensuous paradise that he has created for us. But the very same door that should have been used for the entry of God-approved and God-designed pleasure into our lives was used by Satan as the entry point for corruption.

CONTROLLED KA BA?

Matthew 12:47-49

Someone told Jesus, “Your mother and brothers are standing outside and want to talk with you.” Jesus answered, “Who is my mother and who are my brothers?” Then he pointed to his disciples and said, “…Anyone who obeys my Father in heaven is my brother or sister or mother.”

Isa sa mga pinakamahihigpit at kung minsa’y napakalupit na sistema noong panahon ng Panginoon na nagpapahirap sa tao ay yung family system. Inutos ng Dios na igalang ang mga magulang pero nadala ng mga tao yan sa sobrang extreme na wala nang kaboses-boses o kara-karapatan ang mga anak. Ang mga matatanda na lang ang nagpapaandar ng buhay ng lahat–kung sino ang mapapangasawa mo, kung ano ang gagawin mo, talagang kinokontrol.

TANGGAPIN NA LANG

1 Corinthians 15:10

But God treated me with undeserved grace! He made me what I am, and his grace wasn’t wasted…

Kung puede lang sigurong magpalit-palit tayo ng baha-bahagi ng ating katawan, hindi na tayo titigil ng kahihiram ng iba. Hindi naman masama na gusto ng taong ayusin ang sarili nya, pero para sumaya, tanggapin natin kung sino tayo. At hindi lang tanggapin ha? Pasalamatan ang Dios na tayo ay tayo. Tanggapin maging ang ating mga tinatawag na kakulangan, and then begin from there. Let’s improve up to a point, pero hindi kailangang baguhin lahat. Kasi, ang totoo, hindi na tayo titigil sa kapapalit ng ating anyo. We do not need to be somebody else. We just need to be the better version of ourselves.

HINDI KA NAG-IISA

Psalm 34:18

The LORD is there to rescue all who are discouraged and have given up hope.

When alone and lonely, think that you are not alone being alone. Dapat nating maalala na hindi tayo nag-iisa sa ating pag-iisa dahil maraming tao ang nag-iisa rin.
