Freedom

Freedom

We keep man’s law by obedience; we fulfill God’s law by love.   Long ago, I decided that driving within the speed limit gives me a wonderful sense of freedom. “I don’t ever need a radar detector. And I never have to slow down when I see a state patrol car or worry about ...

Now is Not Forever

Now is Not Forever

The gains of heaven will more than compensate for the losses of earth.   “Think about how good it will feel when it stops hurting,” said my father. Madalas kong matanggap ang advice na ito mula sa aking tatay noong ako ay lumalaki, usually after some minor bump or ...

What’s It All About

What’s It All About

Our lives should be marked by love for Christ and others—not obsession with self.   Recently I was in a crowded shopping area when I saw a woman plowing her way through the crowd. What intrigued me was the message on her T-shirt, which read in bold capital letters, IT’S

The Unknown Giver

The Unknown Giver

Self-sacrifice is the true measure of our giving.   I don’t know about you, but I tend to enjoy getting credit when I do stuff for others. At sa tingin ko, hindi lang naman ako ang nakaka-appreciate ng mga thank you cards at pasasalamat na galing sa bibig ng mga tao. I ...

Fix Your Eyes
