It seems that 100 Pesos is so big amount when you donate it to the Church but small amount when you go to the mall to buy. How will I know you donate more than 100 pesos brother James and others donate smaller? Isn’t the widow gave her very last penny but she deserve more than the rich?It seems 1 Hour is too long when you go to Church but too short when your having fun with your friends. How many hours you spend praying? God don’t measure the quantity but the quality of time you offered Him.And many people want the front row to watch their favorite movie but will do everything to sit in the last row in Church Service. Always humble yourself and don’t let others know that you are praying, stay wherever you feel His presence.Who is on the Lord side? are you on the Lord side? or just neutral and compromiser of this world. Do not insist that you are on the Lord’s side,let others know where you belong.Can you give your time, talent and treasure for God? He gave you 7 days to work and to live your life according to your will. Don’t tell others what to do, show them the right way so they may follow you.but He just ask 1 hour and 1 day to worship Him as your creator, do you tell/ share Him to others? and do you seek and do what His will is? God didn’t ask for 1 hour and 1 day only but instead, everyday. Think of this… how much God love us!
James, just to remindthat this topic is related to the many topics you have created before andMod have alreadydesignated oneforyou.Take note!

Sacrifices exist in every little way. Even if you do not profess your love publicly, God knows who loves him honestly because he knows everything and sees into your heart openly, and knows what’s going on your mind. God knows man’s intention, even in deepest secrecy and decoys. God knows who’s the puppet and real masterminds. God can even even identify and pick those who give voluntarily and honestly, apart from those great pretenders and hypocrites. God even knows who’s calling unto him just for their needs, wants and desires.

I am not feeling in love much these days but should i love or adore somebody that I never met? and what if I were to declare my love openly for you James, would youfeel distrusting jitters come over youif I were to embrace you in publicand kiss you on both cheeks?Do you need that smoochy kind of adoration?Would you prefer a more smarmy fawning, condescendingJudas kiss approach. I have known couples who could not pay the cost of a Church wedding simply because they had no steady jobs and were as poor as a church mouse, not so much as a sou between them both, fees should be only tolkin fees only,which I regard that should be free and the priest should accept whatever is presented to him, I feel sure that he never will go hungry because they are always busy. Where I live people are astute enough to make a decision for themselves, so there’s no need to become a nuisance bothering other people, who might resent you for that matter and especially love to torment people who do annoy them by giving back tenfold and take great delight in making your life in the workplacerather unpleasant. There are many roads to Heven and I thing actually doing some kind acts has its own reward.Jesus came to save sinners and his first Miracle was turning water into wine. Hewas not a spoilsport or a fuddy-duddy buta likeable character when onecomes to understand the story duethe Gospels which were written later on after his death,but it was difficult for them to understand his teachings back in his day, and he tented to ignore the religous leadership rank file, another fact that would have rankled their feathers, obviously this snub from a manof his calibrewould but him at loggerheads who probably thought they were doing the right thing by their own code and covenant which they have with GOD to this very day. I admire him greatlyfor his poise and his humble Humanty, he was not a crawthumper; even pilot was the man who asked if he was indeed proclaiming to be King of the Jews and he replied that his kingdom was not of thisWorld. He was a marvelous orator and the Gospels are precise and to the point.He was alwaysmisunderstood even by his deciplesand an enigmatic forlone figure ful of surprises, althoughpitious,especially in his demise leading to suchsuffering an agonising (excruciating)death for something that had them baffled, and they feared him as a very dangerous man that could lead people astray.They were expectionan extraodinary Super hero type of Messiah to be deliveredfrom On-High,and not a meek one Gentleman. Talk of the Devine Trinity was notfitting totheir concept of there been onlyONE Devine GOD- So they wanted to have him out of the way completly, and as he spoke himself these words’ Father Forgive Them, For they know Not What They Do”. I myself think it would be better to feed his little lambs rather than continually prowbeat people into frightened of the Wrath of GOD into submission. Even I myself would not like a furnace under my butt that is eternally aflame. Perfection is beyond the reach of most of us, and we all want tohave a placein Heven aboveand at the same time we are not in any great hurry to get there and would like to have spend many a long year enjoyinga few homelycreature comforts down here, asfor many of us this World is all we have ever known and we have become rathered attached to family friends, -accustomed to somany splendorous things about us of interestwhich tends to occupy a great deal of or time, any innocent pursuits other thanrunning around with guns and bombs in thehands of cruel activists, if olnly thet would set them aside forevermorewillsatisfy mefor the moment until things steady up a bit would be good for starters. I feel we were meant to streamline matters in our lives in our own seperate ways, and not to be driven from behind like cattle. Easy does it!. Regards Kit
