Should we depend on our children to take care of everything for us on our retirement age? 

Proverbs 10:5 He who gathers crops in summer is a prudent son, but he who sleeps during harvest is a disgraceful son.


Salin sa Magandang Balita Biblia: 
Kawikaan 10:5"Ang nag-iimbak kung tag-araw ay nagpapakilala ng katalinuhan, ngunit ang natutulog kung anihan ay nag-iipon ng kahihiyan."

Personal Application:

After reading this verse, I can’t help but recall what I heard from a church message saying “From the age 18 to 50 is the sunny days of our lives. It is where our candles are highly lit up.”  So true, in these ages we can manage to earn and have employment…make a good harvest

Why are we so afraid of getting hungry?

Proverbs 10:3

The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry, but he thwarts the craving of the wicked.

Salin sa Magandang Balita Biblia: 

Kawikaan 10:3
"Ang matuwid ay binibigyan ni Yahweh ng kasiyahan, ngunit ang masama’y kanyang ginugutom naman."

Personal Application:

Walking down the aisle, taking the hand of the man I love in marriage, one of the things I worry about is…”What if we get hungry?” I had that thought without thinking that it is not only food that would keep us alive but I know very well that it is essential to keep our human body nurtured.



Why is it important to gain trust?

Proverbs 10:2
 Ill-gotten treasures have no lasting value,  but righteousness delivers from death.

Salin sa Magandang Balita Biblia: 
Kawikaan 10:2
"Ang yamang buhat sa masama ay di papakinabangan, ngunit ang katuwiran ay maglalayo sa kamatayan."

Personal Application:

"Tallied!" is what I say every time  I made my cash balancing. I feel great amount of relief and joy while seeing that the money I handled were all accounted for. It is not a huge amount but being able to handle it well give me self satisfaction and a way to say to our Heavenly Father with a winning smile,  " Lord, see..I'm honest just the way you want me to be".

I remembered one time that I had to pay ten thousand pesos just for not listing to whom I gave the money to. Every single cent of that money I paid had an equivalent number of tears of sadness knowing how those people did me wrong. The recipient did not had the heart to admit it and kept the money for himself.  It gave me so much pain to know how people can be cruel because of money. Thanks to God,  I learned that ill-gotten treasures had no lasting value. Whatever they took from me won't last and the punishment that comes along with that money would be under God's care. I would just keep going on and do my best to be honest, to be righteous in the eyes of the Lord and be saved from death of sin.

A few months after that incident, I received a blessing. God had returned that money to me in other ways and He even gave me more than what was lost. With a cold hand and a teary eyes, I almost shout to praise God and tell  how wonderful He is for soothing the pain I felt inside while I was holding the check. I felt that I was given that check because I did my best to be trustworthy and I would keep on doing it.


Our Heavenly Father, Thank you for the blessings. Even as other did not see how we are doing our job with all honesty,  I know dear Lord that You are watching. I would always try my best to be honest with my family, work, people and friends. Please help me gain strength to do so. Keep me away from temptations and keep all those bad things away from me. I am doing all these to please you, Dear  Lord, and no one else. Amen.

Lesson Learned:

If others would know that we can be trusted, God and people would be pleased and blessing would come easily along the way.  The happiness we would feel knowing that what we did is according to God's will is real. For peace of mind that gives good health and happy life...It really pays to be TRUSTWORTHY.

One question I had in mind - What does it take to be a good daughter?

Proverbs 10: 1 

"A wise son brings joy to his father, but a foolish son brings grief to his mother."-Proverbs of Solomon

Personal Application:
I couldn't express the happiness I felt when I went upstage because my son had a medal in school. It  was immeasurable. I felt blessed and thankful to God for giving me  good sons that gave me happiness.

Reflecting on oneself, Was I a good daughter? Wise or foolish? I started enumerating the things I have done for my parents and realized my shortcomings. Regret came into me for not giving them my best. There are some factors that lead to my shortcomings and one of which is ignorance. Yes, It was stupidity in my part for being ignorant of what my parents had expected from me. Since my grade school, I frequently hear my parents saying, "Bahala na kayo sa buhay ninyo pag nakatapos kayo ng college. Wala na kami paki-alam sa inyo at aasikasuhin na lang namin ang sarili namin."

A pen, a notebook and the Bible are my daily journal tools. I felt a strong connection with God doing this daily bible journal. Being able to listen to God as He talks to me everyday thru His words in the bible.

I use to have a lot of questions about my self,  life, living and people but God had manage to teach me little by little everyday. I learned life is not just about me. Life is all about others and letting them live the way they wanted it to be.
