Alright, before going to sleep let’s put this down as quickly as I can:

What a revelation today’s turned out to be!!!

Had a good chat with Alvin and Jo about stuff, life, things that have gone and things that are yet to be. So much to share, to laugh about, the good old days when we were young and innocent.

Oh what good times they were!!

Current updates? Well, more or less the same, SOT’s really starting to heat up. The financial pinch is really beginning to hurt and now the long-awaited mission trip listing is out.

I’ve always wanted to go to Indonesia for ministry, well, let’s just say God’s goodness is limitless: 80% of the trips this time are based there!!

And yes, isn’t it wondrous even in times of fellowship. We can help each other unearth talents and nuggets of wisdom within us? The people all around us are like mirrors. The reflection of yourself is shown in them. How one behaves towards everybody is reflected by their reciprocal actions and words. Which is why I value transparency so much in friendship, there shouldn’t be anything to hide in a close, genuine relationship!!

And thanks to both Alvin and Jo, I’ve discovered a gift within me that I’ve overlooked for years. The gift of writing and language composition.

Or yeah, perhaps there is a best selling author/economic writer hidden somewhere within me that’s waiting to be awakened? Now a whole window of opportunities and adventures are suddenly opened with this new revelation!!

Seriously, friends like them both are worth their weight in gold. Thank God for them both in my spiritual family!! =)

And speaking of family……To those out there starting this whole hooha against our church, our family. I have this to say:

Whatever happens nothing’s gonna change my commitment to the church and spiritual family. The critics can say what they want but I don’t care about what they say, their comments don’t matter. After all, when your family member’s attacked what do you do: turn your back on them and join the accusers? Hello, wake up. Will you do that to your own family members? Seriously, you’ll protect and defend them. Even if they’re in the wrong, what gives you the right to actually attack and ridicule them? Get your facts right before making reckless accusations against people. How would you like it if you’re the one being accused before proven guilty?

To quote the parable from John 8:7-11

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?”

“No one, sir,” she said.
“Then neither do I condemn you,” Jesus declared. “Go now and leave your life of sin.”

Well, before you carry on with those accusations: think again, reflect on yourselves, the truth will stand out in the end.

And if they still press their case: two more verses for them (especially if they’re fellow believers):

1st Corinthians 13:13

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

This keeps us going, and is the main reason why we’re christians in the first place

Ephesians 5:12-13

For it is shameful even to mention what the disobedient do in secret. But everything exposed by the light becomes visible,

And if they still say we’re deluded and irrational. All I can say is everything done in secret will come to light. And that includes whomever started all this in the first place.

So: what goes around comes around. That includes all the talebearers and rumour mongers out there.
