THE PATIENCE

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. (Galatians 5:22-23)

One of the characteristics or attitude that man should have in times of challenges, trials, temptations, inconvenience, hardships or sufferings, difficulties, other areas in our lives  and in

achieving the desires of our hearts the He wants us to be is patience.

In fact, the author of it is Jesus Christ who displayed His unlimited patience to us sinners as an example for those who believe on him and receive eternal life (1 Timothy 1:16). In other words, be reminded that the Lord’s patience means salvation (2 peter 3:15).

Let us be encourage to show patience to one another in every situations in our lives wherever we are. May be in the church , workplace, homes, conferences, meetings and other areas concerning this. But, we don’t deserve to imitate fully the patience of Jesus has because no one is perfect except God for all have sinned and fall short of His glory.

Moreover, patience is one of the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). If anyone of us today is struggling about patience, I believe He is the only one who can change us to be more patient in every situations in our lives. Every men or individual should do to the duties and responsibilities at home, church, offices and other places with great patience for His glory.

To the readers, believers, leaders in church, business and non-business community, associates and to everyone, let us be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction. (2 Timothy 4:2). Always remember the patience of Jesus that He showed to us because He is the true author of it.


ANYONE CAN GIVE (The Benefit of Giving)

All of us has the ability to give in the form of tangible or intangible things for the common benefit of both the giver and receiver regardless of what social status we have in the community.

In giving something we should always be reminded that this is a voluntary action that comes from the heart without expecting the recipient that will also give you something in return.

As a cheerful giver we will experience the joy that sometimes unexplainable, how much more to the receiver of it. This is an act of thanksgiving to Him, a blessing to others, promoting joy and love to one another.  And according to the Scripture that it is more blessed to give.

In 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 it is stated as follows:

6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. 7 Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

In Luke 6:38:Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

God does measure the heart of a giver of the seed(s) to be sowed or given and will harvest at the proper time. Always expect Him that He will bless you in return abundantly according to the needs of your every day living. He will not only bless us financially but also in terms of the different aspects in our lives: physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

It always be in my prayers that He will forgive, teach, train and reveal to me the truth and wisdom of giving and even in tightings and offerings in every single day.

Furthermore, the giver and receiver should always be ready and be glad in giving and receiving, respectively. An attitude of giving and receiving should be apply accordingly for its own good of both the givers and receiver

Anyone can give! In giving, God does measure the hearts of both the giver and receiver. It will bring peace, thanksgiving, joy and gladness to everyone.
