“The scene of this world is changing.” The Bible puts it that way. Recently we are witnessing a year-long pandemic that’s continuing its unstoppable journey. Lots and lots of people are being affected, worried about their future, about their family, about their friends.
Some say it will turn to an endemic and the virus will go on spreading and will stay with us forever in some form or the other. To make the situation worse, variants of the virus are emerging around the world. Global warming, on the other hand, is making our planet hotter and hotter and inhospitable place.
But I find a ray of hope in God’s word. It’s amazing to note that the Bible-based prophesies have foretold such calamities thousands of years ago. A warning sign of last days. Does that mean God is behind such things? No, never. On logical thinking, we can find man’s exploitation of the natural resources, his greed is paving the way to our destruction. Bible has just foretold that these things will happen to the world around us.
Is it going to worsen to the point human race will go extinct? Bible also contains a comfortable message for us. What’s the solution Bible put forward? Will discuss this in my next post. Thanks for taking the time to read my post.
Sometimes we feel life meaningless. Whatever blessings you may have, still you feel something lacking. Why is that? Here comes spirituality. Every human being has an inner carving to satisfy spiritual needs. Jesus Christ mentioned that need in one of his speeches. Happy are those who are thirsty for their spiritual needs.
According to Bible, our creator the almighty God has a purpose when he created the first human couple. He blessed them. That purpose is still unchanged. Very soon, God will make the whole earth a paradise again as he had originally envisaged.
If a person is easily offended by a comment that is certainly not aimed at him or her, that person lacks humility. Self-oriented people lack this virtue, and that makes their life miserable.
In the first place, why should we need humility? Because in a self-oriented world, everybody dictates their terms and act accordingly. When there is a clash of opinions, many think that they are offended. If a person owns a humble heart, then that person will care for others. He or she won’t consider themselves big or any wat greater than others. They patiently listen to others to hear their ideas before offering their opinion. In that way, a person who shows humility will be more respected in the community they live. That makes them great.
Cultivate humility and stay away from depression, free your mind and do more good things in life. Have a great day!
Imagine yourself creating something new, a painting, a sculpture, or writing. Whatever you do, you do it passionately, right? When you create something new and interesting, you feel so happy about what you did.
Genesis 1:31 “After that God saw everything he had made, and look! it was very good.”
The same way God felt happy after the end of the creation days. It’s interesting to note that Bible calls God a happy God, a God who enjoys what he is doing. Everything, including us, he created wonderfully. That is why Bible introduces the creator as a happy God. (1Timothy 1:11) There is no reason for God not to be happy because he is the most powerful and does whatever he wants to do to its complete perfection!
Look around you. Aren’t we special? Animals, birds, beautiful mountain valleys, and everything around us contributes to our well-being and entertainment. Yes, we are special! Because that’s the way God wanted us. The only thing we forget is to appreciate our creator or give credit to him for his wonderful creations, including us!
