Today’s Word

YOU ARE WITH ME

Psalm 23:4

I may walk through valleys as dark as death, but I won’t be afraid. You are with me, and your shepherd’s rod makes me feel safe.

Kahit dumaan tayo sa kamatayan o sa mga halos ikamatay natin na mga karanasan, alam nating kasama natin siya. At kung loobin ng Panginoon na mabawian tayo ng buhay, alam nating sa isang saglit, we will be there with the Lord in a much greater state of spirituality because we will no longer be confined in this physical body. The evil and threat of death, the evil spirits that scare us with death, we will not fear them. Why? Because the Lord is with us.

PRE-EMPTING DEATH

Galatians 6:14

…Because of his cross, the world is dead as far as I am concerned, and I am dead as far as the world is concerned.

One of the best ways to deal with death is to pre-empt it. Lampasan ang makalupang pamumuhay bago pa man sumakabilang buhay. Lumampas sa mga araw-araw na mga alalahanin. Transcend your earthly existence and begin to live in eternity even while you’re still here on earth. Then when death comes, it will not be a big surprise, and you won’t have to make a very big adjustment. Mamatay na bago pa dumating ang kamatayan. Ano ang ibig sabihin nito? Putulin ang relasyon sa mga sobrang attachment sa buhay. Kung mayroon, magpasalamat, pero kung wala, puede rin. May natupad na pangarap, salamat. Pero kung hindi natupad, salamat din. May mga pagsisikap pero kung ang bunga ay hindi inaasahan, salamat pa rin. Hindi ka masyadong attached.

NOT TOO ATTACHED

Matthew 5:4

God blesses those people who grieve. They will find comfort! (10 words)

Lahat ay hiram lamang–ang ating mga magulang, asawa at anak. Ang importante ay habang ipinahihiram sa atin ay ating pinagsisinupan, minamahal at kinakalinga. Sa ganun kung panahon nang isoli ay wala tayong sukat ipagsisi. Salamat sa bawat oras na nahiram. At salamat na ang buhay na ito’y hiram lamang. Sapagkat kahit siguro gaano kasarap at kaganda ng buhay na ito sa ating paningin, hindi naman natin gusto na habang panahon ay ganito. Ito ay isang estado na nilalampasan at dinadaanan kaya hindi tayo dapat sobrang malibang, mahumaling at umibig sa buhay na ito. Whatever good we can do, we do. Whatever goodness we can achieve through God’s love, we achieve. But we don’t get too attached to anything, even to anyone, in this life because we are transients and we are just passing through. Tayo’y nakikiraan. Tayo’y dumadaan lamang. Thank God that he allows us to enjoy many things along the way. When people we love pass on and return to God, we remember to be thankful to God for them.

REUNION

1 Corinthians 15:22

Adam brought death to all of us, and Christ will bring life to all of us.

People come from God. They pass on and then return to God. Walang kamangha-mangha at bago sa katotohanang ito. Ang buhay ay ipinahihiram at binabawi. Ito ay bahagi ng isang mas malaking katotohanan. Death becomes a necessary step so people may complete their union with their Maker.

ASWANG

Psalm 42:11

Why am I discouraged? Why am I restless? I trust you! And I will praise you again because you help me, and you are my God.

Isa sa mga pangunahing folkloric characters ng kultura natin ang aswang. Sila raw yung mga lumalabas sa gabi, naninipsip ng dugo, kumakain ng atay at pagka nagbubukang-liwayway na at nagliliwanag, nawawala sila at nagtatago. Paano kung ang aswang ay isang talinghaga na inimbento ng ating mga ninuno? Paano kung ang aswang pala ay kumakatawan sa ating mga depression? Di ba madalas sa gabi dumadating ang depression, lungkot, pangungulila at takot? Dun tayo nakakaramdam ng kawalan ng sigla, lakas at buhay na parang sinisipsip ang ating dugo at kinakain ang ating atay. Pero pag umaga na, nawawala na ang ating lungkot, inip, at pagkabalisa.

TO LEAD IS TO FOLLOW

Ephesians 6:5, 9

Slaves, you must obey your earthly masters. Show them great respect and be as loyal to them as you are to Christ. Slave owners, you must treat your slaves with this same respect…

You cannot be a good leader if you are not a good follower first. You cannot be a good leader if you are focused on making a personal kingdom. What is leadership? Leadership is trust from God. Leadership is responsibility. Inilalagay sa iyo ng Dios ang mga taong nasa ilalim ng iyong pangunguna para sila ay iyong arugain, turuan, at tulungan, hindi para mo pagsamantalahan at gamitin na pampataba ng iyong puso. Value people as you would like to be valued.

NATURE AS TEACHER

Job 12:7-9 [I think this is a more appropriate passage than Colossians 1:16]

If you want to learn, then go and ask the wild animals and the birds, the flowers and the fish. Any of them can tell you what the LORD has done.

DO NOT TAKE ADVANTAGE

Leviticus 25:17

“I am the LORD your God, so obey me and don’t cheat anyone.”

Kawawa naman ang mga biyuda at mga hiwalay sa asawa. Sila ang kadalasang nagiging tampulan ng pananamantala ng kapwa. Yung mga lalaking nakapaligid, iniisip lagi na lahat ng biyuda at ng hiwalay sa asawa ay wala nang hinangad kundi may makasiping. Kaya ang ginagawa nila ay sinusukul-sukol, tinutukso-tukso at hinuhuli-huli nila kung may weakness. How foolish! We should be kind especially to people who are struggling to live pure lives. We should not take advantage of their weakness or a temporary weak situation in their life.

DIVINE ORDER

1 Corinthians 14:33

God wants everything to be done peacefully and in order.

Our God is a God of order. And what does order mean? Everything is in its place. Nature and creation is a clear display of order with correct sets of boundary and positioning. Ang tubig, ang dagat, at ang bundok ay may mga hangganan.

IGALANG ANG HAPAG

Proverbs 15:17

A simple meal with love is better than a feast where there is hatred.

Minsan, yung sobrang komplikadong handaan na ang dami-daming kutsara, plato at baso na hindi nailagay sa tamang setting ang mitsa ng init ng ulo ni señora sa mga maling nagsi-serve. O kaya napagod na nang husto si misis sa paghahanda, nawawalan na tuloy ng ganang kumain. O nakakatatlong init na siya ng pagkain dahil na-late si mister, awayan na tuloy. Mas mabuti pa raw ang simpleng salu-salo na puno ng pagmamahal kaysa masyadong complicated feast ‘tapos nagkakaproblema. Of course, hindi naman komo complicated ang handa, may problema na. Pero pag complicated yung meal, usually napapagod na yung naghanda. The point is, appreciate and celebrate what’s on the table.
