A pair of verses from Proverbs looks at healthy families from divergent perspectives. The second half of Proverbs 17:6 (NIV) says, “parents are the pride of their children,” while Proverbs 23:24 (NIV) declares, “The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him.”

You know you’ve found a healthy, happy family when the children in that home take pride in their parents. Not only are they unashamed of Mom and Dad, they brag about them to their friends. They include them in their plans. They crave their guidance and their approval and they take every opportunity to “show them off.”

bible readingBECOMING A WOMAN OF DISCRETION

If you were asked to list the greatest causes for the breakdown of the family, what would you suggest? The culture? The media? Entertainment? Secular education? Anti-family laws and public policy? Urban blight? Poverty? Abusive or absentee fathers?

Would your list include foolish women? The more I study the ways of God, the more sobered I am by the incredible influence we as women have in our homes — for better or worse, for good or evil. The Scripture puts it this way: “The wisest of women builds her house, but folly with her own hands tears it down” (Proverbs 14:1). There are two kinds of women in this world — wise and foolish. At any given moment, you and I are either wise or foolish women; whether we realize it, we are either building our “house” or tearing it down.

DEALING WITH STRESS

Are you stressed? Do you know how to deal with stress? Is there someone in the work place you hate so much that person has become the very source of your stress? So how do you deal with it?

Stress is caused by two opposing forces pulling against each other. We usually think of this as something negative, but some kinds of stress are actually essential for life. Take gravity for instance – it puts stress on your body, but you can’t live without it.

When a violinist tightens the strings on a violin, she applies stress on them. The strings are pulled in two directions. The capacity of a string to be stretched is called “tensile strength”. If

the strings are weak, they break when stretched. But if the strings are strong, the violinist is able to produce beautiful music.

People are like that. When pulled in two different directions, some people snap from the stress. Others, however,are able to handle the stress and use it to produce something beautiful. The difference is the spiritual strength of the individual.

RUNNING TOWARD SUCCESS

Note this important detail: David started the battle by aggressively running toward his enemy. He charged the giant who had terrified the Israelite army for more than a month. Likely the impact of running, as well as years of practice with a sling, helped David have more velocity to “nail” his target. David instantly became a hero that day, and for the rest of his life people would remember that he had killed mighty Goliath. It was in running toward the fearsome giant that David had the power to destroy him. Likewise, you need to run toward your fears and kill the giant problems that have held you back.

The next part of your journey will be challenging as you confront the giants that have held you back. You will have to run as fast as you can toward things with which you may have been afraid to deal. Know that as you run you are going to break through to a new level of success.

Ardy RobertoDON’T DO IT ALONE

A few days later, a urinalysis showed that my wife had urinary tract infection (UTI). I tried to hide my panic, knowing that the two major causes of death in SLE are renal failure and infection. I put up an “all-is-well” front, trying to appear that I had everything under control. That was my mistake.

Although my sister-in-law, Chilet, lived with us, and Ting had a loving set of in-laws that were a phone call away, I took all the burden of nursing and “healing” my wife back to perfect health upon my then weary shoulders. With my mind dulled by lack of sleep, my temper shortened and my judgment was becoming questionable.

choose your attitude

CHOOSE TO VALUE OTHER’S OPINIONS

If you are a supervisor or one in authority, you must also be aware of how you respond to the opinions of your subordinates as it can have a detrimental impact on morale and productivity. Even if someone puts forth an idea that you find without merit, you must resist the temptation to dismiss it on the spot. A simple “Thanks for your input” will have a greater impact than “That won’t work.”

Whatever the relationship, when you are dismissive toward anyone, it sends a message: “Your issue is insignificant to me,” “Your feelings or opinions don’t matter,” “I’m disregarding you or your idea.”

A KIND WORD

Everyone has a “kindness kit” that they carry everywhere. It is called the tongue. Never underestimate the power of just one kind word. A Japanese proverb says, “One kind word can warm three winter months.” It is easy to react to acts of kindness with kindness. The real challenge is to respond with kindness to those who lack it. Kindness flows easily to those who treat us well; it is difficult to be kind to those who don’t. And we must be kind through our deeds and words.

In the comic strip Nancy, Sluggo once said to Nancy, “That new kid in school is nothing but a big fathead!”

“You shouldn’t call people names like that,” Nancy said. “I never call people names.”

“Well, I just got mad when he said you were stupid looking.”

“What else did that big fathead say?” Nancy demanded.

FROM THE INSIDE OUT

“Well, you’re partially right. Something like that is never completely any one person’s fault, even a leader’s,” answered Joe, “because each individual still has their own choices to make in terms of their attitudes, desires, and actions in response to those they’re supposed to be following. But be that as it may, you’re still primarily responsible for their loss of those things, because, to a large extent, as their leader you’ve led them down the wrong path.” Joe stopped and looked at Coach, waiting for him to acknowledge the truth in his statement. Coach gave him an affirming nod. “So, in effect, you should feel responsible to lead them back.”

7 secrets

DEFINE ROLES AND RESPONSIBILITIES WELL

A role is the prescribed or expected behavior in relation to a particular position or status in a group or organization. On the other hand, a responsibility is the duty or obligation one has to do in order to accomplish goals.

Well-defined roles and responsibilities are important for order and harmony in a workplace. Their absence results in conflicts and low productivity, in the reign of “each to its own scenario,” which is a sure formula for a workplace disaster.

25 most commonBE A DECISION MAKER

Someone once said that it is easy to be decisive because nearly everyone else is indecisive. If only it were that easy. There are a number of things that play into making good decisions: an innate gut reaction, emotions, logic, history, experience, responsibility, accountability, and knowledge. You shouldn’t make decisions because of emotions, whether yours or others. Leadership decisions must often be made on the basis of common sense and management principles. Business decisions are best made in light of what is good for the business. This may or may not include the feelings and emotions of others; but you cannot make rational, wise decisions if you overemphasize the feelings of others.

power of a new attitudeTHE DANGER OF THE PROCRASTINATION RUT

One way we subtly get around the emotional dilemma of claiming to value something without acting on it is to procrastinate. This process engages the will and intent but not the body or action. It is akin to having the motor running with the car in park. No one can accuse us of not caring. It’s clear we do because our intent is to “get around to it.” Our yes is evident by our emotional support, but our real yes is avoided because, for all practical purposes, we have not acted on the yes. We hold the check in our hand but have not cashed it. Just a little more time, a bit more organization, a few more dollars or accomplishments and it’s as good as done.

think on these things

HAS YOUR EXPECTER EXPIRED?

My friend Joe Sawyer tells a cute story about a boy who was fishing one day. An elderly man who was fishing nearby noticed that the young lad was having considerable success in his endeavor. What was more unusual than the amount of fish he could catch was what he would do with the fish once they were successfully landed on the bank. The boy would hold each fish up to his hand and measure it. If the fish was larger than his hand, he would throw it back into the water. He kept only the small ones.

Finally curiosity motivated the old man to slip over to the young boy and ask, “Son, why do you keep the small fish and throw the large ones back into the water?”

transforming leadersTHE GIFT OF ADMINISTRATION

 The gift of administration has not been seriously considered in Bible Colleges and among Christian leaders. Some consider it too business-like and may lack spirituality. The Scripture include administration as one of the gifts. I pointed out Moses, Aaron, Joseph, Solomon, and Nehemiah. They were not only leaders but administrative giants.

John Wesley was a great administrator. Whitefiled was more popular, oratorical, and charismatic. He stood before 5,000, 10,000 and 20,000 crowds and kept them glued. But Methodism’s influence, led by Wesley, resulted to Holiness movements and eventually Wesleyanism. It swelled and was sustained. Credit that to Wesley’s ability to organize and mobilize, along with his passion to evangelize.

LOVE

YOUR DEEPEST NEEDS

As an Encouraging Spouse, you crave approval. It’s in your DNA. You feed off of winning the acceptance of those around you — especially your spouse. You thrive on compliments. You have a built-in radar detector for approval that never turns off. You constantly monitor your approval rating, looking for the slightest movement in either the positive or negative direction. If it goes down, you immediately shift tactics to gain more favor. If you sense your spouse doesn’t like what you’re wearing, even slightly, for example, you feel compelled to try on something different.

In addition to approval, you want affection.

IN SEARCH OF THAT LONG-LOST VERSE

Nearly everyone interested in the Bible has had the frustrating experience of vaguely remembering a biblical passage but being at a loss when it comes to locating that verse in the pages of Scripture. While not all Bibles are physically large, the Bible itself is huge, in terms of its content. In fact, the Bible is not one book, but a collection of sixty-six books, containing over 790,000 words in a typical English version, making it one of the largest single volumes most people own. In addition, most people remember words and phrases better than Scripture references. For example, you may remember that once familiar verse about how “God so loved the world,” but not be able to track it down in the pages of your Bible. However, you may remember bits and pieces of its wording. For example, you may recall that the verse also contains the words “begotten” and “perish.”

ONE LAST CRY

“You know how troubled I am; you have kept a record of my tears. Aren’t they listed in your book?” Psalm 56:8 (GNT)

Ang pag-iyak ay isang uri ng katapangan. Katapangan na harapin ang kasakitan. Katapangan na sabihin sa sarili mo na may hangganan ang iyong kakayahan. Katapangan sa pag-amin na kailangan mo ng tulong ng iba.

Hindi ko makakalimutan ang pinakamatinding pagluha ko sa aking buhay. Naganap iyon sa huling gabi ng burol ng aking ama. Habang sinasariwa ko ang kanyang magagandang alaala, kung paano siya naging proud sa akin bilang anak, para akong isang bulkan na sumabog.

When I was a little girl, my father spent most of his waking hours working at his building supply company, observing construction sites, or socializing with his colleagues and associates. Even though his place of business was only a few blocks from out home, his heart was miles away in a place I could never find.

My father didn’t drink alcohol every day, but when he did, it consumed him. Dad was filled with a rage that always seemed to be boiling just beneath the surface of his tough exterior. When he drank, that rage spewed out like hot lava onto those around him. Unfortunately, my mother was the most common target.

NOT JUST WAITING AROUND

“Among you,” God tells His children, “there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or any kind of impurity” (Ephesians 5:3). It’s because of clear commands like this and the reality of our God-given sexual appetites that we face “hammock” moments — moments when we must choose between what our bodies crave and what we know our Lord has instructed.

The temptation may be as seemingly innocent as deciding when to kiss, or as serious as choosing when to sleep together. Whatever it is, the internal struggle is the same. The question boils down to, whom will you believe? Will you heed the clear commands of Scripture and the voice of your conscience, or the voice of compromise that’s offering immediate pleasure? What’s really going to make you happy?

be skillfulDISRESPECT

Disrespect for parents usually begins with disrespect for the Word of God that parents seek to teach to their children. “A fool despises his father’s instruction” (15:5 NKJV). “He who despises the word will be destroyed, but he who fears the commandment will be rewarded” (13:13 NKJV). Sometimes children go off to college or a university and get poisoned by ideas that are contrary to Scripture, and then they come home to tell everybody how stupid and old-fashioned their parents are. If children maintain this haughty attitude, they’ll eventually rob their parents (28:24), curse their parents (20:20), and bring shame to their parents (19:26).

Under the old covenant, children who disobeyed their parents and broke the law were in danger of losing their lives.

commentaryTHE DISOBEDIENT SON

The seriousness of the charge of disobedience to parents lies in the fact that it is a breach of a basic covenant command (5:16), and that the family is an essential means of maintaining the covenant in Israel (6:7, 21-25; cf. Mk. 7:10). Presumably, the disobedience in question is of a very serious kind; the loose life-style indicated by v 20 may simply be a symptom of a determined opposition to the ways of God which the parents have tried to teach (18).

This apparently unnatural law aims to stress the responsibility of parents to
maintain the covenant. Indeed, it fell to parents, in principle, to initiate legal action against a son who threatened the well-being of the whole community because of his defiance of the covenant standards.

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23

We are the product of the decisions we make each day of our life. That’s why Proverbs tells us to watch over our hearts. We must protect ourselves from deceit, lust, pride, and many other potential pitfalls. A man fights the good fight in his mind all the time. This is where the enemy attacks our weak areas. Here are some ways for you to protect your heart, and in turn, keep your mind fixed on God’s righteousness:

2. Be aligned with God’s Word…

love is a flame

SETTING THE BACKDROP

Friendship is often a great springboard to later romance. When love does bloom, it springs up in the midst of a relationship that may already be mutual, self-sacrificing, and beneficial for both parties. Love blooms well in this type of soil.

When romance grows as it should, two mature individuals begin to forge a lifelong friendship that is based on mutual respect, shared values, and compatible temperaments. Each one gladly makes sacrifices for the good of the other, and each one strives to help the other become the very best person he or she can be. This kind of mutual sacrifice characterizes long-term, highly satisfied married couples — they look out for each other, support each other, speak well of each other, and build each other up.

ENTHUSIASTIC: LIFE IS EXCITING!

Emerson wrote: “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.”

There is an extraordinary, dynamic quality about enthusiasm. It is permeated by a victorious attitude so powerful that it sweeps all before it. It brings the personality alive, releasing dormant powers.

The difference between enthusiasm and faith is very slight indeed. Perhaps enthusiasm may be defined as faith that has been set afire. Enthusiasm is one of God’s greatest gifts.

We all have longed to know why something happened to us or to a loved one. It’s understandable. Behind that why is a deep desire to be shown a bigger picture, an explanation, or an outcome that could remotely be worthy of the loss or worth going on in life bearing that loss.

My own whys stemmed from deep disappointment and sadness. In my mind, this was not the way things were supposed to turn out if we pray and believe in the power of God to change lives. I wondered if my prayers were rejected and if this was punishment for my own mistakes and sin. I never felt mad at God, but I did want to know if a failure on my part as a mother or as a child of God made me somehow responsible.

Sa pagpapatuloy ng kuwento ay naging born-again ang biker. Nagbago ang buhay ng lalaki. Nagpagupit ito, nagpaahit, nanamit ng maayos. Ang lahat ng iyon ay bunga raw ng spiritual transformation nito.

Habang nanonood, sumisingit sa isip ni Vinna na kung tutulad siya sa biker na naging born-again ay kailangan din pala niyang magpagupit ng maigsi at gupit-lalaki. Nagkaroon ng pangitain si Vinna na pinuputol ang buhok niya. Tutol ang buong pagkatao niya sa idea! Hindi niya gusto ang gupit-lalaking buhok. “Lord, parang hindi ko kaya ‘yan,” sabi niya habang nakatutok ang tingin sa TV screen.

In I Corinthians 6, there is a long list of sinners who would not inherit the kingdom of God and at the end, the apostle Paul says to the church in v. 11, “Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” The church was filled with ex-adulterers, ex-thieves, ex-effeminate, ex-homosexuals, etc…. and we were all ex-sinners as well. But by the grace of God, we were saved — nothing to boast about, nothing to be proud about, nothing to our own credit. We still sin, but now, we have the power to live victoriously in Christ. And when we remember that, we will have more compassion and humility.

The most effective way of ensuring e-safety is to equip adults and children with the critical tools that they need to understand the varied facets of the ever changing digital world. Many adults don’t have the technological know-how to keep track of what teens are up to online. As a result, a victim’s experience may be missed and a bully’s actions may be left unchecked. Even if bullies are identified, many adults find themselves unprepared to adequately respond. Media literacy is the key.

It is important for parents to understand what constitutes cyber bullying and how bullies perpetrate cyber bullying.

STAYING IN LOVE AFTER THE WEDDING

Welcome to the real world of marriage, where hairs are always in the sink and little white spots cover the mirror, where arguments center on which way the toilet paper comes off and whether the lid should be up or down. In this world, a look can hurt and a word can crush. Intimate lovers can become enemies, and marriage a battlefield.

What happened to the “in-love” experience?

On another occasion, while we were having a weekend retreat at our church, we experienced this yet again — the river of God — through worship. We were supposed to have our session on “The Holy Spirit.” About an hour was allotted for this particular session.

As always, we would start a session with a song to ready our hearts for the word. We only sang one song- Love Song (of Christ for the Nations Institute), which was a fast praise song. And at the end when we hit “It’s wonderful! It’s wonderful!” heaven broke loose. That last chord was delivered — and it went on and on and on!

LOVE IS PATIENT

Patience is the ability to be wronged, inconvenienced, wearied, or inundated and yet still wait on God for that person or situation and not retaliate, punish, or give up.

Other words for “patient” are tolerant, forgiving, charitable, big-hearted, openhearted, sympathetic, understanding, enduring, steadfast, constant, unwavering, tireless, undiscouraged, and forbearing.

To be patient is to put up with, make the best of it, grin and bear it, and be uncomplaining. Are we always that way with everyone? Not likely.
