And What Good

“Have you been faithful?”

“Lord, I have had little money. Look at my brother, his riches abound. Check his books! More than once he’s kept for himself a tidy sum. You won’t tell him I’m the one who said so would you? Don’t forget my neighbour while you’re at it, I’m certain her money doesn’t grow on trees. Surely, you will find me faithful in comparison against them. Humbly I have lived hand to mouth. I don’t think I had much.”

“Hasn’t it been said, be faithful to the little things…?”

“Yes yes, I have lived humbly from hand to mouth, all the time. There was little to be faithful to anyway. Have you seen those who have glory, riches, and power? If I had been bestowed that, surely I would have been a good steward. I would have used the glory to spread Your name. Spent my riches building a home for the lost. Used my power to rescue the weak. Alas, I was not dealt these cards in life.”

“Covetous fool… Why do you long for what is not yours?”

“Because I have nothing! NOTHING! Pffph. Look at my brother, you blessed him but never me!”

“I was with you…”

“And what good was that for me on Earth?”

“And what good are riches for you here in Heaven?”

The Servant King

Matthew 2:2 Now after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, 2 saying, “Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him.”

3 When Herod the king heard this, he was troubled, and all Jerusalem with him.

Herod the king was afraid. He imagined an earthly king arising to challenge his rule and dominion. The people were unsettled too…don’t we all feel the same way during the elections? What would become of us at the arrival of a new ruler?

But Jesus didn’t come to establish a Kingdom on earth like they thought.

John 18:36 Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My kingdom is not from here.”

Jesus was a King, but He chose to be a Servant.

I love games. Computer, Console, Mobile Phone… I love them all! Especially RTS and RPG ones. In the last game I played, I was a mogul of a chicken empire… Earning 139 quazillion dollars every second selling quantum-fuelled eggs with the ability to power cities from not less than 125,000 chickens in my nuclear-powered farm.

Teacher Moment. This always happens… You’re staring at a pair of students mid-joke… One of them notices, stares straight ahead and tries to pull a straight face. The other is still oblivious and finishes the joke animatedly. The joke ends – one of them is laughing. the other’s insides are flipping trying to hold back the laughter. Hahahaha.

为什么你晒到哪吗黑?

“Aiyoh, 为什么你晒到哪吗黑?”

I get that a lot, and I tell them I was born with it. Now here’s the picture to end the debate.

Love this picture.

I recalled this because earlier today my mum was trying to give me some traditional dessert, and mentioned that she drank it lots when she was expecting me. Thanks ma, for giving birth to me and taking care of me. Happy Mother’s Day! (:

On The Overhead Bridge

I was crossing the overhead bridge to work when I found myself blocked by two boys. They both had their wallets out and were whispering intently to one another. One boy took some coins from his bright blue purse and put them in his friend’s palm. It was awkward of them to stop in the middle of the crowded passageway like that – maybe they were chipping in to buy something together.

To my surprise, I saw them turn around to a man sitting by the bridge. The man had a leg in a cast and was asking for alms. The boys slipped the money into the man’s hands before scurrying off.

They were little people with big hearts.
