Today’s Word

WHEN PAIN SPEAKS

Psalm 77: 2
In days filled with trouble, I search for you. And at night I tirelessly lift my hands in prayer, refusing comfort.

Pain speaks to us in ways that ease cannot. It makes us remember what pleasure forgets. Yung maliit nating daliri na lagi nating nai-ignore-ignore, pag yan ang sumakit biglang conscious ka. “Ay! May maliit na daliri pala ako.” You become conscious of the parts of your body you had never known existed or you never appreciated. Kung bakit naman kapag may sugat ka, laging yun ang nababangga. Kapag tayo ay nasugatan at nasaktan, we become more conscious of other people who are also wounded.

PALAKIHIN ANG UTAK

Isaiah 54:2
Make your tents larger! Spread out the tent pegs; fasten them firmly.

Though the Lord has commanded man to multiply physically, it is also very important that we multiply essentially. We must magnify the essence and the spirit of life by multiplying in terms of fruit and production, work and meaning. Habang lumalawig ang buhay, dapat tayo lalong nagkakaroon ng halaga, maraming napo-produce, natututuhan at naituturo. Kaya lang ang mga tao minsan ay tumatanda nang paatras. May makikita kang kakilala, wala nang ibang topic kundi asawa nya. Napakalimited ng repertoire ng topic na alam pag-usapan: ang asawa nya, ang apo nya, at ang kanyang mataas na blood sugar. Kailangan naman na pinapalaki ang mundo at ang mga performances natin para mag-enjoy at makinabang, hindi lang tayo, kundi ang ibang tao rin.

LET PEOPLE TOUCH YOU

Acts 14:8-10

In Lystra there was a man who had been born with crippled feet and had never been able to walk. The man was listening to Paul speak, when Paul saw that he had faith in Jesus and could be healed. So he looked straight at the man and shouted, “Stand up!” The man jumped up and started walking around.

Nagkatinginan lang sila. Habang nagsasalita si Paul, may isang lumpong nakatitig sa kanya nang may pananalig. Nakita siya ni Paul at sinabi nya, “Nananalig ka. Maglakad ka.” At nakalakad yung tao. Hindi ka lang titingin at mag-uusyoso kung ano ang itsura. Pakikiramdaman mo kung ano yung ikino-communicate nya. The disciples of the Lord were empowered by the power and spirit of Jesus to touch through words, their hands, even just the eyes. We can touch people through media, the cellphone, e-mail, or gifts.

BANTAYAN ANG SARILI

Proverbs 3:21
My child, use common sense and sound judgment! Always keep them in mind.

The presumption here is that we know the difference between good and bad. Seldom are we going to be surprised na “Ay, yun pala ang tama at ito ang mali!” Most of the time we really know what is good and what is bad; we just neglect sound judgment. Minsan sinasadya nating maging reckless, padalus-dalos at careless.

DIVINE REMINDERS

Psalm 121:1-2
I look to the hills! Where will I find help? It will come from the LORD, who created the heavens and the earth.

To “look up to the hills” is really a figure of speech. Many people lift up their eyes to the clouds or to look at the rain. Some people can even remember God by looking into a microscope. Dapat mayroon kang ganung ritwal sa buhay. Tuwing nakakakita ng maraming pagkain, naalala mo ang Dios. Mayroon naman na tuwing kikilos siya at malusog, naaalala rin nya ang Dios dahil naikukumpara nya noong siya ay halos malumpo at hindi makalakad. Ano’ng nagpapaalala sa atin sa Dios? What do we do to physically and symbolically remember God?

HINDI IKAW SI SUPERMAN

Mark 10:18
Jesus replied, “Why do you call me good? Only God is good.”

Walang taong Superman! Huwag nating papaniwalain ang isang tao na siya ay isang superhero, o isang super holy man or woman. Naniniwala tayo sa kanyang talino. Humahanga tayo sa kanyang prinsipyo at paninindigan. Bilib tayo sa kanyang honesty at integrity. Nai-inspire tayo sa kanyang sipag at tiyaga. Pero huwag natin siyang papaniwalain na siya ay invincible dahil pahihirapan natin siyang panindigan ang monumentong ginagawa natin para sa kanya. Siya man ay masasakal at malulunod sa ganyang expectation.

KUNG KALOOBAN NYA

Psalm 62:5
Only God gives inward peace, and I depend on him.

Noong araw, bago may sabihin ang mga matatanda lalo na’t medyo magdi-disagree, nagpapasintabi muna sila at humihingi ng paumanhin. “Mawalang galang na po.” Kung sa kapwa tao ay nagpapasintabi tayo, “Hindi naman po dapat na ako’y marinig pero ito po ang aking abang ideya” bakit kapag nagdadasal tayo sa Dios ay ganito: “Lord, ibigay nyo sa akin ito now”? Parang alam na alam na natin talaga kung ano yung mabuti sa atin at mas marunong pa tayo sa Dios. Dapat, “Lord, kung kalooban nyo po sana at kung mabuti sa akin ito. Pero kung hindi po, kayo pa rin ang masunod.” Yun ang essence ng prayer.

LEND YOURSELF

Mark 10:45

“The Son of Man did not come to be a slave master, but a slave who will give his life to rescue many people.”

Halos lahat ng pinakamatatayog na mga gawain na paglilingkod sa kapwa ay hindi economically profitable. Kaya karamihan ng gumagawa ng ganitong paglilingkod ay mga volunteers. Magvo-volunteer ka na magtanim ng mga maliliit na buto sa mga nakakalbong gubat, maglinis ng mga sapa, ilog at dagat, mag-alaga ng mga bata sa bahay-ampunan, magpakain ng mga matatanda sa home for the aged. At dapat sa buhay na ito, hangga’t kaya ng ating katawan, mayroon tayong sinasalihang volunteer work not for our personal benefit but for the benefit of others, the environment, and even the kingdom of God.

MINISTRY OF COMPANIONSHIP

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

You are better off having a friend than to be all alone, because then you will get more enjoyment out of what you earn. If you fall, your friend can help you up. But if you fall without having a friend nearby, you are really in trouble.

Generosity goes a higher notch when we also engage in giving time, attention and companionship. Hindi ba magandang maging volunteer to be a companion to someone? Para kung mayroong kaibigan o kapatiran na nalulungkot, naiinip, nababagot, naguguluhan, gusto nang tumalon sa Ilog Pasig pero nangangailangan lang pala ng kasama ay maging available tayo. Maraming pinagdadaanan ang tao at ang mahirap kung minsan ay wala naman siyang makasama at makausap. Walo nga ang anak, nasa abroad naman lahat. Gustong makausap ang asawa, pero nasa trabaho naman. Busy rin ang mga kapatid sa kani-kanilang pamilya. Giving time to those who need companionship is one of the greatest charities.

OUR TRUE FAMILY

Hebrews 2:11

Jesus and the people he makes holy all belong to the same family. That is why he isn’t ashamed to call them his brothers and sisters.

Sino ba talaga ang nag-aalaga at nagtitiyaga sa atin hanggang wakas? Ang pamilya. Kaya dapat laging mabuti sa pamilya. Sa katanghaliang tapat ng inyong buhay kung kailan kayo malakas, maganda at maraming kinikita, mahalin nyo ang pamilya nyo. Tangkilikin nyo sila. Huwag nyong tatalikuran o iiwanan. Kasi sa inyong pagtanda, sila rin ang magtitiyaga sa inyo.

KEEP DREAMING

Proverbs 19:21

We may make a lot of plans, but the LORD will do what he has decided.

People dream. That is one basic reality. People have hopes, desires, and plans. Without these, life would be nothing but mere existence. Pagka ang buhay ay wala nang hinahangad, walang minimithi, walang pinagpupunyagian, parang magiging boring existence lamang ang buhay. Dapat talagang punung-puno tayo ng mga gustong gawin, matupad, at ma-accomplish. We should turn our dreams into plans. Pagka pangarap pa lang, medyo vague pa yan. Ano ba ang pangarap mo? Paano mo ba gagawin yun? Kailangan mo ba ng training o ng education? Do you need somebody to give you a break? Kailangan mo ba ng lugar? O management?

INESCAPABLE

Hebrews 9:27

We die only once, and then we are judged.

Takot na takot ang mga tao sa kamatayan at dapat naman talagang matakot ang marami. Death is inescapable. But death is not the end; it is only the beginning of eternal life. People die and when they do, they face judgment immediately, ultimately. Walang makatatakas sa kamatayan at sa paghuhusga. Wala nang hintayan, walang grace period, at walang appeal. Kaya nga isang nakakatakot na katotohanan ang naghihintay sa mga hindi pa handang humarap sa paghuhusga ng Panginoon.
