Living off of God’s Word

L

I am not the type that makes yearly resolutions. It is not because I don’t believe in planning; I do. It is because most of my plans are not based on calendar time. One of my plans is to finish my thesis. I have already finished writing it and am in the process of editing and formatting it. I figure I won’t finish it until early Feb. But given my wife is going to Africa for six weeks...

Good suffering vs bad suffering

G

Last month when I was reading my Bible, I came upon Deuteronomy 8. In verse 3, it says: So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the LordDeuteronomy 8:3 (NKJV) There are a few things that I want to...

Thesis-time

T

For the past two months, I’ve been knee-deep in my thesis. I’ve learned that you first write it and then the hard part is editing it. I’ve learned so much in this process. I am trying not to rush this journey so I can submit something semi-intelligent. Just one more month of editing, proofing and formatting. Then I am done. In Ironman, we have a saying, how do you eat an...

Love is the key to learning

L

Here is a picture of all the exercise books we taught our four-year-old for 2021. It is by God’s grace that He allows both Wai Jia and I to homeschool her. Wai Jia focuses on English, Chinese, Grammar and Arts. I focus on Science, Logic, Math, and Bible stories. A major lesson I learned through this parenting journey is that while enrichment programs, there are some things only parental...

Christmas tree

C

This is the Christmas tree we set up in our home. When I set it up, I thought it was a poor sight. The top is tilting. The bristles are far in between. I thought, wouldn’t it be nice if I spent a bit more money on getting a better tree? (Note: I am not against lovely trees or even real ones. I am not judging anyone here ) As I think how much I should spend on a tree, I realized I was missing...

Discipleship redefine

D

I am finishing up writing my thesis. The next step is to edit and format. The aim is to finish by the end of January. It is unbelievable that the thesis is almost complete. Something that is grappling in my heart is how the church needs to relook at discipleship. Right now, we treat discipleship as mass production. Everyone goes to Sunday School or a Bible Study. It is a classroom style. Now...

Plan but don’t depend on the plan

P

Lately, as I journey life with younger Christians, I tell them to plan but don’t depend so much on the plan.Whether it is finding a relationship, getting married, or having kids, finding the right job or making more money, it is easy to assume that we got these things will make us happier, safer, or more satisfied. So what do we do? We plan and see how we can get these things.The reality is...

To be used by God

T

As Christians, we wanted to be used by God. There is nothing with that. In fact, that is a healthy desire. After all, we want to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness as Jesus said in Matthew 6:33. The problem is not having this desire, it is then we set our own plans and then ask God to bless them. This can even be in ministry or even considered as noble like helping others. And...

Is it Biblical for the Wife to earn more than the Husband?

I

As a stay-at-home dad, I am in a way at the fringe of what society expects husband/father to be. Father/husband is known to be the breadwinner and the one to provide for the family. Now, no one has confronted us about this. But once in a while, we can feel there is a subtle expectation and at times, disappointment that our family is running counter to this. This may sound like an assumption. But...
