This blog captures the musings and anecdotes of the daily life of a Malaysian who is now living in Melbourne, Australia.


1 Corinthians 10:23-24 : All things are permissable, BUT.....

I Corinthians 10: 23-24 : "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.

Another saying goes like this, “When planning your life, start at judgment day and work back.”
As Americans we like to take advantage of all rights and freedoms.
But as Christians, we are to walk by faith, not by sight. Living by sight means living for today.
But living by faith means living for eternity…looking ahead to judgment day.
When you live by faith, the payoff isn't so obvious today.
The true payoff for living by faith comes on that day.
Quote from:

On a human level, it brings me back to what JY had done that day at PD....Although she had the FREE choice to do what she wanted, and had done it, was she considerate about the consequences/chain reaction of her own actions?

1) Did she think about how others would respond?
2) Did she think about how others would react?
3) Did she realise tat MT would have been pretty embarrassed/shy to actually approach the girls for help?
4) How would her friend have felt when I reproached JY, even privately?
5) Did she realise how her actions would have inconvenienced others?

Basically, no matter how old a person is, regardless whether they're 25 or 40+, I don't think age is an excuse for acting immature. We just have to tell them, coz it's either,
1) their parents DIDN'T Teach them,
2) we are lousy friends coz we let them make a fool out of themselves,
3) they just didn't know better.

All ARE very VERY good reasons why we SHOULD not keep quiet when we SEE something so OBSTRUCTIVELY and ANNOYINGLY wrong which would continue to IMPEDE on either ourselves or others. Which is basically, COURAGE to STAND UP for yourselves and Others as well.

As no matter how popular a person is, it doesn't excuse their bad behaviour, or wrong choices they make. They will eventually get their just desserts, in God's eyes. As revenge belongs to the Lord, not mine.
