Devotional

by Oliver Pablo The Lord Jesus Christ give an example of the kind of attitude that His followers should adopt. Perusing the passage of Luke 17:7-9, one may find the example extremely inhumane by some people's standards. In the text, it is clear that the servant is more exhausted than the master.

His Love

by Lorie Lopez   Life will not always be a bed of roses. Consider yourself fortunate if you feel as though you're lying on one right now. But life will always have its ups and its downs. It could be your own foolish pride bringing you down. It could be that even with the best of intentions, things don't go the way you want them to be. It could be that because of your stubbornness, you are ...
by Meg Fernandez   If there is one thing in this world that we can never solicit or buy is love. This is given free of charge to people whom we care for.

Subtle Deception

by Adrian Miciano   I once tried to hide something from somebody. It was just a little thing. It wouldn’t hurt if I did it without involving anybody because it was just a little thing.

Trust His Plan

by Charisse Mendoza It is indisputable for us to question God's reason when things transpire according to our heart’s desires. Favors are hardly ever questioned because they are usually being thanked for. W e do not bother to ponder on having received blessing, do we?But not all occurrences are favorable to us. Not even all our understanding. More often than not, it appears in the most ...

To Love Your Enemies

by Angelo ZantuaThese teachings of our Lord boggled the Pharisees who heard them. These Pharisees, obeying and following the laws of Moses, were accustomed to the law that you should do to your enemies what they have done unto you. It was "an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth."When it comes to the strict compliance of the laws, the Pharisees are unmatched and blameless. They give the tenth ...
