How to do God's plan in the right dose?

with one comment

In a beautiful Sunday noon in the late summer 2012, the homely was about the pharisees focusing more on upholding the laws of ensuring cleanliness before eating rather than following God’s plan.
But what really matters is inside a man instead of outside of him.
Evil comes from inside of men, instead of outside.
That’s why we have to be careful when we talk, not to talk evil (e.g. things that hurt others).

How do we know what God’s plans are?
To illustrate, a father loves his son so much and allowed him to play computer games. Consequently, the son has poor eating habit and poor social skills.
A fresh graduate wants to go to a foreign land to serve as a volunteer yet neglecting a retired mother (without income) alone at home.
A priest helped a family with a 4-year old son by buying them groceries, but the father is so arrogant that he was unable to keep his new job for more than 2 weeks (after a long period of unemployment). The father also threatened the priest to give the family money. This is an example of over helping.

Over helping can ruin the life of people we care and love.
Yet, too little helping is also going against God’s plan.
So, how do we know what the right dose is?
The act of balancing is challenging, but not impossible.

Tertiary education to cherish

leave a comment »

Recently, through God-given natural instinct for beautiful and big-dreaming people, I am so grateful to learn from this charming and generous lady TP.

She commented that many students do not cherish their opportunities to receive tertiary education.
Do you still remember when you were fighting just for a slot in your undergraduate university?
I am grateful that I made it (entering with hopes, exiting with even bigger hopes and determinations to give my best in this life to family, society, and the world)
A senior commented how colorful my undergraduate days.
He is right.
A junior student even openly admire my achievements.
I am touched.
Received scholarship.
Among top students, even I would say that there are many others who are more intellectual than me.
Completed a minor program in a year together with my major workload.
Succeeded to secure an exchange study and obtained good results.
Went to a summer program at the most prestigious university of a country.
Worked part-time.
A student leader, rubbed shoulder with nation leaders.A volunteer (a mentor, a first aider).

While these experiences seem prestigious and fanciful, it is the learning process that allow me to grow.
Counting these blessings, I could only thank God.
Re-searching my passion and leadership.

Other stuff learnt from TP:
3 (simple) rules of risk management:
1. do not risk more than you can afford to lose.
2. consider the odds.
3. do not risk a lot for a little.
