LifeHeaven or UFO?: The Liberating Words of Jesus. Read more ... » According to Some People
Our topic for today is about life. What’s life? If I ask you, what’s life? I also asked my FB friends, what is life? And I also researched about the meaning of life. And I got several answers, for a start I want to mention few of them:
- According to Isagani Casambros, “When we give food and clothesWhy the King Killed Those Who Did Not Attend His Son’s Wedding?. Read more ... » to the needy and hungryThe Judge-King Favors the Least: The Undocumented Aliens, etc.. Read more ... » that is life. When we seek justiceThe Eight Beatitudes: Principal Graces of a Christian. Read more ... » for the opposed and marginalized that is life. When we give our life as an instrument of GodIsaiah’s Prophecy on the Coming of the Savior. Read more ... » for the sake of others that is life.”
- Earl Robinson said, “Life is finding your purpose and living it to the fullest.”
- Elmer Zapata Borromeo posted that “Life is a continuous struggle.”
- Elgin Villanueva Veneracion argued that “Life is a gift, an investment and a journey. It gives meaning to deathLazarus’ Raising as a Proof of Resurrection. Read more ... ».”
- “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself,” George Bernard Shaw
- Albert Einstein argued that “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky, gave a different perspective, “The mystery of human existence lies not in just staying alive, but in finding something to live for.”
Life is God Given

The Purpose of Life?
You might ask, what’s the purpose of our life? Verse 5 says, “no one to till the ground.” We might deduce here that God created us human beings because we have purpose in life or roles“Ready or not, here I come...again.”.

Now you knowHow to Know the Presence of the Holy Spirit?. Read more ... » why Pastor Philip is enjoying long life. It’s because he is still pursuing God’s mission wherever he goes! Earl Robinson is right when he said, “Life is finding your purpose and living it to the fullest.” We have life if we are living and pursuing the purpose of our being. In other wordsHeaven or UFO?: The Liberating Words of Jesus.

As Albert Einstein once said “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
Our mission is manifold and different. As in the church we have pastors, musicians, singers, cleaners, cooks, etc. The Lord created and gave us life not only for one role. God has instead given us many giftsCome! Share Your Master’s Joy!. Read more ... » and talentsCome! Share Your Master’s Joy!. Read more ... » for us to pursue and execute God’s mission.

A philosophyTuloy Po Kayo! (Welcome!). Read more ... » professorThe Transfiguration of Jesus. Read more ... » stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course"How to Use Church Web Effectively for God's Ministry?". Read more ... », rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.
The professor picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up the remaining open areas of the jar.
He then asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “Yes.”
“Now,” said the professor, “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The rocks are the importantThree Important Teachings of Jesus.

“If you put the sand into the jar first,” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the rocks. The same goes for your life.
