Have you ever gotten misunderstood by people or have you ever unintentionally hurt someone because of what you’ve said? Well, it happens to the best of us.
Finding time for exercise is a challenging task. Agree? Especially to us, professionals, we have so many excuses – overtime, busy, stressed, etc. And if you are one of those who frequent the gym, you might have heard from a friend whenever you’d ask them to come with you the usual, “naku, next time na lang!” or “sige, try ko tomorrow.”
Being a mother is not an easy job. It is hard and risky in which no cumulative wisdom is gained that even other generations tend to repeat the same mistakes the previous ones have already made. I guess it all boils down to simple common sense.
We are all very much familiar to flooding. And as most of us already know, flooding is caused by the rise of water due to clogging of waste materials and poor drainage system usually occurring during the rainy season. Did you know that it’s also during this season that Leptospirosis cases surface?
If you’re like me, who’s working on an 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM job (well technically it’s 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM for me, but you know what I mean!), getting promoted will never be off of your list. Let’s not kid ourselves, we all want a promotion or a raise at the very least! But once we already got it, what do we do next? As much as we’d always want to be “the very best,” *cue Pokemon theme* that cannot just simply happen all the time. Upon reaching the next level, it’s time for us to work hard again for the next one. It may sound like a never ending cycle but as long as we’re living we should never stop growing, right?
“Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch bear fruits of itself unless it abides in the vine, so neither can you unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, be bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” – John 15:4-5
Jesus used the word “abide” in verse 4 as a command to the disciples because He knew that not all of them are abiding – that Jesus knew Judas would eventually betray Him. You see, in reality, not all believers abide every single time. We may be working in a Christian organization, earn a living, practice generosity, and even serve the poor and still not be able to abide. That is why we need to know that there is a difference between work and fruit. It is not impossible to be working for Christ and still not be fruitful just because we are not abiding. But how do we abide? The only way is to be connected as the branch to the one true vine (John 15:5). We have been called to be connected with the vine in order to not just produce fruit but to bear it; for bearing fruit is a natural outcome of being in Christ and letting Him live His life through us. We love Jesus because He first loved us (1John 4:19). We didn’t choose Him, He chose us to walk out our faith in obedience to Him (John 15:16).
