Tama na ang Pa-Strong
Ang akala ng mangmang ay siya lamang ang tama, ngunit handang tumanggap ng payo ang taong may unawa.
Mga Kawikaan 12:15
Kilala bilang strong, independent woman si Martha. Isa siyang interviewer ng TV show and today, guest nila si Elmo. He shared his journey after his father was diagnosed with cancer. Ikwinento ni Elmo kung paano siya nagtanong kung bakit pamilya nila ang kailangang makaranas nito at kung paano siya in-encourage ni God while his dad was going through the healing process. While talking, Elmo noticed that Martha was crying. Apparently, the night before, she learned that her own mom has cancer. Being the strong woman that Martha is, she kept it to herself. She just cried out to God. Pero ang lahat ng mga tanong niya sa Diyos kagabi, nasagot habang nakikinig siya sa kwento ni Elmo.
Madalas pa-strong tayo na gaya ni Martha. Iniisip natin na kaya nating ma-solve nang mag-isa ang problema. Or thinking na wala namang makakaintindi sa pinagdaraanan natin, so what’s the point of seeking advice? Pero ang sabi sa Bible, the wise man listens to counsel (Proverbs 12:15).
God speaks through people. Maaring leaders natin sa church, kapamilya, kaibigan, at minsan, kahit strangers. Madalas, nauna silang makaranas ng mga pagsubok para maging encouragement sila sa atin when we go through that same path. Minsan kasi God already gave us the answers in His Scripture pero di pa rin natin naiintindihan. But once we seek wise counsel, God’s Word becomes clear to us. Ganyan kabuti ang Panginoon that He makes it easier for us to understand Him. All we have to do is be willing to listen to the people He will use to talk to us.
God, I pray that You will give me the spirit of discernment para malaman ko po kung kanino ako dapat mag-seek ng wise counsel. Make my heart ready na tumanggap ng payo mula sa kanila. Thank You for their lives.
