Engagement varies in different cultures but Biblically, we see it as early as Genesis. Abraham, gave specific instructions to his servant on looking for a bride for Isaac. The book of Ecclesiastes also states “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.” (Ecc. 4:9) (more…)

Someone asked me how do we balance stewardship (focusing on eternity) and honoring God (through studying). Here’s my view… (more…)

Oh wow. How time flies. Was it just a year ago when I celebrated going pass 30? Here are a few thoughts as I turned 32.

#1 I’m grateful that the Lord has called me into His service.

Just as Paul mentioned in Ephesians 3:8…

We are called to be missionaries, whether intentional or not.

That is how I feel. Being the least of the saints. Why would God choose me with all my faults and failures? I am still overwhelmed that He would allow me to preach. But I am reminded that it is a CALLING. Hence, it is my prayer that I be found faithful in this area. (more…)

The gentleman went up the podium. He was going to deliver a message, more so, like a father sharing to a child. Scratch that. It’s like a grandfather talking to his grandchildren.

I had a conversation about “crimes” we committed in our entire lifetime. In building relationships, we come to a time where we exposed our vulnerabilities, and that includes being honest about who we were in the past.

Take it in the case of Mike Ross.

I have been watching the show, SUITS, since season one (as of this writing, they’re on season four). The series talks about a guy who pretends to be a lawyer and then his lies grow bigger and bigger to a point that a whole firm is in jeopardy because of him (and as long as he doesn’t get caught, the show will continue).

Here are a few things we can learn from suits…
