Credentials for Christ?

C

Disclaimer: I am not writing this because I am bitter or I am judging others. I am writing this to jot down some thoughts I have when it comes to following Jesus. The thoughts may not be complete and often, I am still processing. And that’s okay. It is all about the journey. So if you are a minister, or studying your M Div or PhD or writing a book, this is not a post judging against you. It...

More money do not solve money problems

M

I shared this with a friend the other day. The solution to money problems is not having more money. “You have sown much, and bring in little; You eat, but do not have enough; You drink, but you are not filled with drink; You clothe yourselves, but no one is warm; And he who earns wages, Earns wages to put into a bag with holes.” - Haggai 1:6 NKJV We think if we make more money, our money problems...

It is ok to fail. it is not ok to Quit.

I

As I am working on my thesis for my M Div, I started to think about being a father. One thing that dawned on my mind when I first step into fatherhood, especially when it comes to discipling our children, is that I realized I couldn’t do it. Or I don’t think I can. I am never good with children. It is too difficult. How can I share God’s love, speak the truth and help them...

Dismount and push

D

In Singapore, they built paved paths known as PCN (Park Connectors). As the name implies, it connects from one park to another. This is great because you can cycle, blade or run between parks. Earlier this week I was exploring a route from Bishan down to Marina Bay Sands. It was fun exploring and riding a roadie (road bike). Once in a while, I came across certain sections where you have to...

you should only speak truth about the gospel?!?

y

Lately, I’ve been hearing that when we speak the truth, it is only meant for preaching the Gospel (talking about Jesus) and not about other matters, like COVID-19. So it is OK if I’m a liar but when it comes to Jesus, I speak the right theology? I’m pretty sure that is not right. Truth is truth. Whether scientific or spiritual. And I believe we all want to speak, to know and to...

Yesterday, I was planning to run the longest I haven’t done for a long time. 1 hour. Haha, it is funny because when I used to do a triathlon, 1-hour jog was average. 15 min warm-up, 30 min main set and 15 min cool down. But after a long time away from pounding the pavement, I figure let’s see how my body can handle going ‘long’. So I started off reasonably well. I...

Do my strengths make me a good leader?

D

Earlier this year, I told Wai Jia that I am not sure what my strengths are. A friend recommended I to take the Clifton StrengthsFinder. I’ve taken various personality tests before and those tests didn’t reveal anything surprising about me. However, in this test I felt God gave me insight into what it means to be a leader. Whether it is in the Church or the world, leaders are highly...

learning to parent

l

Sometimes when you look back, you are amazed at how much you change. I remembered when I first came back to Singapore from Canada back in mid-2019, I was in a shock of being a stay-at-home dad. There are, of course, other factors that caused me to be stressed out. Being in Singapore and learning to survive as an infant and a toddler was no easy feat. Where in Canada, where I grew up, I know how...

putting Jesus first when it comes to money

p

This should be a no-brainer, right? That we ought to put Jesus first in everything we do. We are in the process of making a big decision relating to our finances. When it comes to money, the commonsense approach is, how can I make (or keep) as much money as possible? There is a part of me that doesn’t feel this is right. Am I saying that we should be senseless with our money? Of course, not...
