what the Bible says about humility
Honestly, I don’t read my Bible frequently. But, I made an effort to hear the Gospels from the Priests during Mass and other Spiritual constitution.
Early this morning, I’ve heard in the radio the Gospel for today, I would like to share it with you.
“Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven”
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 18:1-5.10.12-14.
I paused for a minute then reflected. I know it’s wrong, but instead of reflecting about myself, my mind taught of somebody else “The POLITICIANS”, particularly ourPresident’s involvement to some issues and scandals lately.
1. $20,000 spent by Gloria Arroyo in a dinner with her delegates in Le Cirque Restaurant in New York, last August 3, 2009. Although we all know that we are living in a 3rd World Country, our government officials still has the capacity to spend huge amounts of money besides the economic crisis we are facing. Where do you think they get these?
2. Gloria Arroyo’s assets also increased for almost 114% (from 2001-2008). According to the ABS-CBN news her asset is bigger than the total assets of the 3 previous presidents (Aquino, Ramos and Estrada) during their term in the office.
These are only a few things the current administration is avoiding to face. If I will post all of it, it will take 2-3 pages of this blog. It’s tiring and stressful to do that. I am full of anger with this administration. If only they would explain and show some proofs that these allegations are not true, somehow my anger will ease. I can’t wait for the coming election this May 2010. I want to have NEW government officials now.
Mrs. Arroyo if you will read this, the Bible is referring to the attitude of a child being humble so that you will be accepted in heaven and not referring to the Physical aspect of a child (which is short and little).
If you are a strong President as what you have shown in your last SONA, and told that you NEVER use your power for personal profit, then now is the right time to prove it.
WE ARE WAITING FOR THE DAY THAT THE EVIL SPIRITS OF THIS COUNTRY GO AWAY FOREVER….
