God taught me again

I was the guest speaker at Bukang Liwayway for its Baccalaureate Service. I used Deuteronomy 8 with the title, Remembering God with Thankfulness.

I preached with an almost unprepared heart. I mostly relied upon the prayers of others. Blessedly, God helped me and I was so glad that the night before I once again cried in prayer and there was a genuine change in heart.

The church is a large one, with a good number of youth and children. They have more than twenty leaders. The church is spacious too with a large room for visitors. They also sponsor many children and youth for their academic scholarship.

The moment I arrived there, it dawned on me that I have to tone down the message. I also wished I chose a different Text. Yet, by His Grace, the message made its full impact upon the parents – and partially upon the graduates.

I was also humbled down by the fact that they call Ptr Paolo as Kuya and not pastor. I was a bit ashamed of myself.

God taught me to be sensitive – to feel and discern the surroundings. He also taught me adaptability – the wisdom and courage to adjust instantly according to needs.

Thank You Lord for these learnings.
