Who are the PROPHETS of today?

Think of those who are unafraid to say the hard truths for the sake of justice and the common good.

We live in an environment that teaches us to survive by looking after ourselves.

In our modern situation, it is often not practical to be naive, and recklessness can easily invite disasters of many kinds.

Being kiasi (afraid to die) can keep us realistic in tending to our own welfare.

Sometimes our faith calls us to encounter little ‘deaths’ in our ordinary life.

Choose to pray that God be glorified through whatever happened.

John 12:24

Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies,

it remains a single grain;

but if it dies,

it bears much fruit.

Solution of kiasi:

death is necessary for resurrection.

Jesus showed us that even death cannot separate us from Your love.

2 Corinthians 8:7

Just as you excel in everything – in faith,

in speech, in knowledge …

see that you also excel in this grace of giving.
