“A great man is always willing to be little.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson.
When I realised that God died on the cross for someone like me, I feel very humbled. I mean, I came from the dust and will go back to the dust, what reasons I have to boast?
Nothing that we possess (materialism) will last, only the memories, and the impact of what we do and say, how we made others feel, and how we take care of the talent & gifts bestowed to us.
Life is but a dream, as they say, and Tita Ligaya affirmed this to me last night when we had the chance to talk for a bit while waiting for the bride and groom in the reception hall. – The typical me, that when I am with older people, I prefer to listen to them while looking straight into their eyes, and then learn from their words of wisdom, and of course laugh hard, grin or smile every time they hit their punch lines or if the situation calls for it.
The point is, no matter what we achieve in life, it’s still imperative to look back on where it all started.
As a woman, on Genesis 2:22 – The bible entails, Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man.
Where did the man come from?
Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.
It all came from the dust, and we will all go back to dust. Some of you may not believe where we came from, but I am pretty sure, we all know that when we die, our temporal body will return to the sand.
So while still alive, apart from investing into materialism, let us not forget to invest into something that we cannot see or touch, but we can feel, and most of all – long-lasting.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post. I am Jo, a sinner and was transformed into a faithful woman because of the graces of the Lord. On my own, I can only do so little, but with my faith to Jesus, and through the wisdom, He blessed me with, I can do tremendous things & speak words that heal.
Happy Sunday! Jesus loves us.
