Do not worry about your life

D

If there are verses in the Bible that dominate my life, they will be found in Matthew 5 and 6. The verses in chapter 6 about do not worry are of particular importance. I believe this is the key way how to live as we follow Jesus. I am referring to verses 25 to 34. If we understand these texts well and apply them in our lives, we will never be a nominal Christian. 25 “Therefore I say to you, do...

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...

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...

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...

Generation Issues

G

Once in a while, I see a post saying how the previous generations are much stronger in dealing with life issues than this generation. They were willing to “suck it up” and overcome life difficulties, while many of today’s generation are like strawberries (easily bruise). Given the increased mental issues we see in the young generations today, it seems that statement is true. Or...

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...

The Next Leg: 40-60

T

Yesterday was my birthday and I turned 41. For the past few weeks, I realized something, I am getting old :D. No kidding. Whereas I once view myself as the 20 something who go out and do something, I realized I have more responsibility to consider. Mind you, this may sound like a bad thing, as the culture often tells us that we have no life once we are married or have kids. We are told, or we...

God who sustains our marriage

G

Whenever someone I’ve known is Christian and is going to get married, I will often send him or her this quote from Dietrich Bonhoeffer: It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on, the marriage that sustains your love. How I read it before is that from now on, it is your commitment, the vow you’ve made before God and men, that will sustain the love. Not your love...

Acting like an athiest

A

In the past few weeks, I’ve been evaluating the things which make me anxious.   I believe there are ungodly beliefs, and God is training me to trust in Him more. Oswald Chambers once wrote that when disaster strikes or when pressure comes, a Christian will act like an atheist.  That is, they act as if God doesn’t exist at all. In a short few weeks, it looked like God is...
