One of the most obvious certainties about earthly existence is the fact that someday each one is going depart from this world. This is as evident as saying that the sun is bright. 

However, it's sad to know that only a few people are watchful or even considering the unavoidable appointment with death or the second coming of Jesus Christ.


Be Aware Of Your Own Biological Clock

Our good and gracious God was even nice enough to put in place a biological clock that would remind us of our temporal status, yet people still ignore the warning signs. 

These wake-up calls haven’t escaped my attention. 

At age 36, I’ve noticed changes in my body fat, eyesight, mental capacity, and joints. 

They all express one common message: “Hey, Raymund, this is your halftime warning!”

Hanging out with bossy people will definitely make you feel miserable. The catch here is they can affect you if only you let them. 

It is one thing to spend time with a manipulative person and another thing to let her control you. Most people are not aware that they are domineering and controlling and, more often than not, they will get hurt if you tell them. 

There are many ways to deal with a bossy person and here are some things that you can try.

Planted in a Local Church

Post written by Denielle Tamayo

"Together you are the body of Christ. Each one of you is part of his body." - 1 Corinthians 12:27
As the body is one unit but with many parts, so is the body of Christ, the church. God has united us with other believers through the Spirit. He has brought us together to be the tangible companion and encouragement for one another. Where one rejoices, others rejoice with him. Where one suffers, others would suffer with him.

God made us different from one another to function differently. So as when one is weak, someone else would be his or her strength. All members of the church contributes something of necessity to keep the church at it's best. Our gifts are used not for personal fame but to sincerely help others and have genuine concern and care for others.

Spiritual Laziness

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

“How long will you lie there doing nothing at all? When are you going to get up and stop sleeping?” Proverbs 6:9
The Book of Proverbs warns us about laziness. Chapter 6 verses 4 to 11 says that we can learn a thing or two from ants on being diligent and productive. Ants store up food while they can to make their future secure. It also says that lazy people just sleep and wait for better days.

When it comes to our finances, we ought to copy the traits of these ants. We should save money to prepare for our future.

God or Money?

Post written by Raymund Tamayo

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.” Luke 16:13
God owns everything on earth and in the universe, and we are stewards of what He blesses us. If we can't be trusted with little, how can we be trusted with much bigger and valuable things? Honesty and faithfulness are the marks of a great steward of God.

We must always put into heart and mind that God is our Lord and Master, not money. We cannot say we love God, if we love money. We cannot serve both God and money simultaneously. People should use money to live, and not the other way around.

God sees and knows what is inside our hearts. We cannot justify our wrong decisions because God knows our inner motives. What we value here on earth may be abominable in God's sight, so we have to be careful. Let's examine our lifestyles and question ourselves who or what we really love. Is it God or money?
