People Like Us

The Six Rules of LifePeople Like UsDon't like something just because you think other people will like it, because they won't.What you think is important isn't.

Stations of the Cross

The Garden of Gethsemane is where Jesus struggled with what he was about to go through.

Just like you and me, He was afraid and wanted out.

Can you imagine, his closest friends were all fast asleep when they should have been vigilant! And even after waking up, they would all desert him, one by one. Then the terrible suffering would begin.

But Jesus did not get angry. Instead, he got down on his knees and prayed hard and asked for an exit.

“Father if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering from me. Yet I want your will not mine.”

Read it in Luke 22:42

Look LONG and HARD into a mirror.

What you see is the reason why Jesus took that cup of suffering. Remember that!

How much was Jesus worth to Judas?
30 pieces of silver, that’s what!

In those days, that was equal to 3 months’ salary. Today, that would be about P36,000. The cost of a luxury cellphone, or a cheap lapto…

Living a Blameless Life

Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent? Who may live on your holy mountain?
The one whose walk is blameless,
who does what is righteous,
who speaks the truth from their heart;
whose tongue utters no slander,
who does no wrong to a neighbor,
and casts no slur on others;
who despises a vile person
but honors those who fear the Lord;
who keeps an oath even when it hurts,
and does not change their mind;
who lends money to the poor without interest;
who does not accept a bribe against the innocent.
Whoever does these things
will never be shaken.

I pray that we will all be known as people who live a blameless life. May our beliefs match our behaviors and our private life match our public life.
