True Riches in God’s Kingdom

True Riches in God’s Kingdom

True Riches in God’s Kingdom

Jeremiah 29:11:

“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Have you ever felt discouraged? Do you feel down? Or do you feel tired? Do you feel like nothing falls into place and that everything you do just simply fails?

God is constantly listening. Your every woe will be answered. Just reach out to Him and you will surely find the answers to your deepest questions. This is how prayers work. We won’t realize it, but God is working in ways unimaginable. All He requires is that we trust Him and have faith that everything is going according to His Divine Plan.

The Importance of Work and Prayer

“Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce. Marry and have sons and daughters; find wives for your sons and give your daughters in marriage, so that they too may have sons and daughters. Increase in number there; do not decrease. Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

What must we do to prosper? The Lord has proclaimed, through the prophet Jeremiah the divine formula to our divine prosperity.

This prosperity is richness not in this material world but in the resurrection, as we enter the kingdom of Heaven, where our true riches lie. What do these riches pertain to? How can we attain them? These, God will answer through various instruments.

This passage reflects that we are called to different vocations, “build houses and settle down, plant gardens and eat what they produce.” Some of us were created to be professionals, doctors; saving lives and treating illnesses, some to be farmers, plowing the land and planting seeds to provide food for man and a place of dwelling for animals, some to be brothers, and sisters and mothers and fathers.

We are made for this.

We must work and carry on our daily functions, struggles in love.  One must have a personal connection with Our Lord.”

We must know our Lord. We must know Him and His plans for us, through speaking to him in prayer. “Am I on the right path, oh Lord?” The more we pray, the more we speak to Him. The more we speak to him, the more we can know Him. And, the more we know him, the more we can love Him.

Our Lord has created this world in a specific order. And we must stay in this order, stay in His love for us to achieve eternal prosperity and happiness. This is what He wills us to do. Sure, it may be quite an uneasy path, but in the end, it will all be worth it.

And so we pray, “Lord, help us grow the way You have created us to, may we, through Your grace and goodness, want and pursue, the things that will be for the welfare of our Souls, and will lead us closer to You, in Heaven, Amen.”

Traversing Unknown Road with the Lord

Traversing Unknown Road

Traversing Unknown Road with the Lord

Lk 5,17-26: One day Jesus was teaching and many Pharisees and teachers of the Law had come from every part of Galilee and Judea and even from Jerusalem. They were sitting there while the power of the Lord was at work to heal the sick. Then some men brought a paralyzed man who lay on his mat. They tried to enter the house to place him before Jesus, but they couldn’t find a way through the crowd. So they went up on the roof and, removing the tiles, they lowered him on his mat into the middle of the group, in front of Jesus. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the man, “My friend, your sins are forgiven.”

In this passage, we reflect on a day, during Our Lord’s proclamation. His days of healing and teaching, a multitude of people, even the top authorities regularly visited Our Lord. A group of faithful men brought a paralyzed man on his mat. Motivated by love for this man and the unshakable belief that Christ can heal him, they went up the roof through the path less chosen and removed the tiles, which were ‘impediments’ to get to Our Lord and be healed. Astonished by their faith, and overflowing with love and mercy, Christ treated him.

The Road Less Travelled

Most of us live through a life preferring comfort, going through the leveled path. Getting to the rooftop and creating an opening through the roof is no easy task. We must realize that to follow Christ; we must bear our crosses daily. Choose the path to Christ’s love and everlasting goodness.

There may be instances when we feel like God is testing us. Instead of bearing our crosses with glee, we mope around the corner and question Him, “Why is this happening to us? What did we do to deserve such loneliness?” These are the usual scenarios we go through when we experience trying times.

A Series of Impediments

The men in the passage did not just go through one hindrance, but a series of impediments, one after another. First, the man was paralyzed and cannot walk by himself thus a mat was used to get him around. A multitude of people was in the way, so they went up to the roof to get over this. Up the roof, there was no ready access, so they had to remove the tiles. What great faith they had!

As Christians, we will continuously encounter impediments. There will always be challenges. The enemy, Satan, and the fallen angels will consistently block our paths towards Paradise. Hence we must be vigilant. They will always find a means to lead us to avert from our true calling. Know that the most significant impediment is a sin. Sin draws us away from Our Lord. Sin prevents us from the realization of our true created purpose.

With this, we must pray and ask for forgiveness unceasingly. Every day, every moment is an opportunity to draw us closer to Our Lord. And every time we fall and ask for His mercy, He lovingly says “My friend, your sins are forgiven.”

God’s Ultimate Blessing – Love, Bread, and Fish.

God's Ultimate Blessings

God’s Ultimate Blessing: Love, Bread, and Fish.

Mk 6, 34-44:

As Jesus went ashore, He saw a large crowd, and He had compassion on them for they were like sheep without a shepherd. And He began a long teaching session with them. It was now getting late, so His disciples came to Him and said, “This is a lonely place, and it is now late. You should send the people away and let them go to the farms and villages around here to buy themselves something to eat”.

Jesus replied, “You yourselves give them something to eat”. They answered, “If we are to give them food, we must go and buy two hundred silver coins’ worth of bread”. But Jesus said, “You have some loaves: how many? Go and see”. The disciples found out and said, “There are five loaves and two fish.”

Then He told them to have the people sit down together in groups on the green grass. This they did in groups of hundreds and fifties. And Jesus took the five loaves and the two fish and, raising his eyes to heaven, he pronounced a blessing, broke the loaves and handed them to his disciples to distribute to the people.

He also divided the two fish among them. They all ate, and everyone had enough. Then when everyone finished eating.  The disciples filled twelve baskets with broken pieces of bread and fish. Five thousand men had eaten there.

Do we adopt Christ’s divine sensitivity for those who are intimately around us? Do we adopt openness and flexibility to respond to their needs?

We are all familiar with how quickly time passes by when we do something we truly love and when we are with someone or a group of people we truly love. Christ filled with compassion, He taught the whole day, and the disciples noticed how quickly the day passed. They were worried about the people, modeling the empathy their Teacher had.

What do you have and what can you give?

The Lord decided to give them more than just spiritual food in the form of The Word but also food for the body. Jesus asked the disciples what they have. The disciples started looking at each other. Because they only had five loaves of bread and two fish. It was not enough.

What we give, we will receive sevenfold.

But the Lord can never be outdone in generosity, with His love and compassion, He did not only decide to make a miracle to provide for them. He also organized the distribution systematically and orderly.

“Then he told them to have the people sit down together in groups on the green grass. This they did in groups of hundreds and fifties.” The food miraculously, out of love, fed five thousand men. What we give through love, and with love, given generously, will multiply in grace.

As children of God, we are the leaven of society. As a famous saying goes, “Someone cannot do everything, but everyone can do something.”

“Lord, help us to be sensitive to the needs of those who are intimately around us. May we not feel frustrated or discouraged when You call us to respond with flexibility. Teach us, Lord, on how to change our plans to do Your will. Help us to recognize that You provided all that we need. Let us become generous, cheerful givers and sharers of Your Love. Amen”

The Ultimate Offering

The Ultimate Offering

Mark 11:41-44 41

Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts. But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents. Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”

Are we willing to serve Our Lord? What are we willing to offer up for Him? How much are we willing to offer up for Him? Jesus Christ, Our Lord, and Savior, willingly died on the Cross to save us. We must remember that Christ did all of those consciously, choosing to protect us from eternal damnation. Imagine the pain, the fear, the misery, the loneliness our Lord must have gone through, taking the form and flesh of a true man. All of these he did out of service, out of genuine care, out of pure love!

As Jesus watched, he saw rich people, people of high material and political standing, putting their money in the temple treasury; where people put their gifts for god. These people placed vast amounts of money.

Jesus created Perfect Man and Perfect God, knew that these amounts were only a fraction of what they can honestly give. A poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins. Christ knew that it was everything that the woman owned. How was she able to do that? She did it out of service, out of genuine care, out of pure love!

As we go through our days, going through our daily tasks, let us watch, as Christ has watched those people giving in the temple, for opportunities to turn all our thoughts all our actions to be of the highest value in the eyes our Lord. How? Do you ask? By being ‘contemplatives,’ may we take the time to contemplate, the root word being ‘temple,’ a place where we make things Holy by offering them up to God. And we cannot just offer it up; we need to ‘add value’ to our thoughts and actions by adding love to the equation.

“Lord, thank you for giving me a heart of gratitude. Help me, with all my strength, with all my heart, and with all my mind. So I could add love to all of my thoughts and deeds. May I learn, through your grace, to love you more, through the tasks I go through, through the people, the souls I interact with. Amen.”

Stand Strong: Overcoming Test of Faith

Stand Strong

The film Stand Strong tells about main character Matt Webster and his family who were having a materialistic way of living. The opening scenes showed the lifestyle of each of Matt’s family members. We see that Matt is busy with work while his wife Tara gets preoccupied in pleasing her rich friends than giving attention to their youngest child.  They often left Cameron in the house with a maidservant. The two teens Megan and Brendan attended to their hobbies and friends.

Each of them created a little world outside the family to cover up their lack of support towards one another. Their set-up was akin to most of us who look up to lifestyle than have meaningful relationships at home and work, in school or with friends. Consciously or not, our focus goes to the image of affluence where we thrive. When this level of comfort and security gets shaken, that’s where the trouble begins.

Matt’s predicament came into view when the company he works for started cutting jobs. He tracked house payments and his family’s expenses. Tara overspent on her credit cards. Brendan and Megan often went out with their separate set of friends. As head of his family, Matt decided to cut back which dismayed them. Wives can reflect on Tara’s malpractices. As a wife and mother, her duty was to support her husband’s decisions in curbing their expenses and not rant on him when her cards got declined.

After losing their house to foreclosure, Matt’s family moved in to live under his brother Josh house. His mother declined to bail him this time so he’d learn to manage his family and finances on his own. Tara and Megan grow up with a servant and this situation tested Rachel’s patience. Good thing Rachel chose to pray for extended patience than quarrel with Tara. Had acceptance came into their hearts sooner, it could have eased their adjustment period as part of another household. Ego usually gets in the way before humility sets. Matt and his family experienced this kind of situation. Josh offered to help Matt with what he knows about dealing with finances based on principles from the Bible.

Another test of fate was when Cameron fell from a rocky cliff after following Brendan who climbed on top of it. Filled with guilt about his brother getting hurt, Brendan was remorseful and turned to the Bible for guidance. Matt saw this and bridged the gap between their father and son relationship. He noticed Brendan’s artistic talent and came to work with him on a digital marketing project. Matt also reached out to Megan to restore their father and daughter bond.

The film Stand Strong depicts factors that make up for character building between husband and wife, parents and children, an individual and family that stands steadfastly. Towards the end, they all learned from each other that made them hold together as a family again.

October Baby: A Quest to Redeem an Identity

October Baby

The film October Baby has dramatically dealt a sensitive topic about failed abortion and its consequences. Main character Hannah was a freshman student who suffers seizures due to being born prematurely. After fainting onstage at a school play, her protective father Dr. Jacob consults a neurologist about her complications. Hannah overheard their conversation including that he read her journal where she noted feeling unwanted. She then insisted to know the cause of her health issues.

As it turns out, Hannah survived a failed abortion and that she was an adopted child. This revelation led to a quest to find her birth mother. Hannah wanted to know what happened to her mother and why she considered her as a case of unwanted pregnancy. These scenes showed us the emotion of a confused teenager with an identity concealed from her. We also saw the love of an adoptive father who kept the circumstances underlying her birth for as long as he can.

Right in time for spring break, Hannah travels with her childhood friend Jason and his buddies so they can drop her off to Mobile on the way to New Orleans. Jason’s girlfriend Alana gets jealous over Hannah so she called Dr. Jacob to confront him. What’s good about Jason is that he proves to Dr. Jacob that he can trust him as his daughter’s friend and companion. He left his buddies and girlfriend so he can go with Hannah. There was a chance for them to sleep in one bed in a hotel but they ended sleeping at a couch in the lobby instead. What they showed is young love that has pure intentions for each other.

There were several heartbreaking scenes in this film. Nurse Mary described in details to Hannah what happened when she and her twin brother was born. The incident left a trauma in her even at the passing of time. The second poignant scene was when Hannah’s birth mother Cindy saw her note on the table. In it were the words I forgive you and a hospital tag she used when Hannah was born. Cindy broke down in tears realizing the weight of her sin. She didn’t acknowledge Hannah as her daughter when they met. The pain was still there between them.

However, Hannah chose to forgive her even when she didn’t ask for it. The third tearful scene was when Dr. Jacob brought Hannah to her twin’s grave and told her about the lengths he and his wife took in order for her to live. Hannah finally had closure with her past and understood that it was her adoptive parents who wanted her in their lives.

Ultimately, the story’s message was as we are forgiven by Christ, we forgive those who sinned against us not because they deserve forgiveness. We have the power to choose to forgive because we deserve to free ourselves from the burden that hatred and regrets bring to our souls.
