Life skills to the younger one

November 26, 2010

A conversation I had with my brother as we were walking home today. My mum had asked  me to pack 2 packets of coffee and bring them home.

Bro: How would you feel if mummy say your coffee is not nice,though you took such a long time to make them.

Me: I will be ok with it, coz after all I learn to accept that there are some things I can do well in and there are some things I don’t do as well. And this could be something that I don’t do well in. That doesn’t mean I suck or anything,

Subconciously, I imparted to him a lesson to not take ourselves too seriously.

Later in the day, my cousin shared with me the story of the crocodile and rabbit.

One day a crocodile was biting a rabbit. Someone  had compassion on the rabbit and rescue it from the crocodile. But by saving the rabbit from the crocodile, you killed the crocodile.

You could be the crocodile.

That story, wrecks me up.

If we learn to swim, we won’t drown

If we learn to swim, we won’t drown.

Surely, there would be the occasional muscles cramp that caught us by surprise, so painfully gripped us rendering us helpless.

But that’s when, we realize it’s good to not swim alone, at least swim in a place where there is a lifeguard.

 

We are not made to struggle alone.

Be equipped to deal with your struggle.

Never do it alone.

You would prolly drown.

 

What to compartmentalize

November 14, 2010

Revisiting compartmentalize. Something I posted on the 28th March 2009 which I want to remind myself again.

“We can compartmentalize our emotions to be rational.

But,

We should should not compartmentalize God to rationalize.

“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. 13Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.”Hebrews 4:11-13

Right and Wrong is like black and white.

Grey areas happen when we mix the two together.

If we were to seek deep into our hearts, there is always a right and wrong . The question is, how much of our carnal nature versus God’s Holiness.”

And once again I like to say amen.
