  • Teachable

    “So Jesus explained, “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by Himself. He does only what He sees the Father doing. Whatever the Father does, the Son also does. For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything He is doing…” John. 5:19-20NLT

    At two years old, our son crawled on top of the chest freezer beside the window, to watch for Daddy returning home from work. By three, he was glued to Lou’s pant leg. Four brought the world of, “why Dad,” everything shown, explained, taught and patiently worked through. All grown up, he returns home to help dad.

    Jesus was the Son of God. The Bible tells us repeatedly, He was also “the Son of Man.” As hard as it is to imagine, Jesus had to learn from His earthly father the trade of carpentry. From His heavenly Father, He learned how to do miracles, walk on water, raise the dead. His next statement to the Jewish leaders was, V20 continued, “…In fact, the Father will show Him how to do even greater works than healing this man. Then you will truly be astonished.”

    There was a teachableness about the Son of God—Son of Man. We would do well to practice being teachable. Instead we fret— “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:31-33 NLT. Fretting costs us our peace.

    How will we ever catch up on the bills? Covid wiped out our small savings. Can’t pay for Johnny’s braces and Susie’s glasses now, nor even put food on the table and toilet paper in the bathroom. Who knows to supply our needs, Jesus might tell us to go fishing, as He did Peter in Matthew 17:27NLT: “…go down to the lake and throw in a line. Open the mouth of the first fish you catch, and you will find a large silver coin. Take it and pay the tax for both of us.”

    Often, Jesus asked someone to do something seemingly ridiculous or impossible. It’s a good way to discover another person’s level of faith. The rich young ruler wanted Jesus to teach him how to draw closer to God. Jesus told him in Matthew 19:21NLT “…If you want to be perfect, go and sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me.” This young man had no faith, because we’re told continuing on in V22NLT “…when the young man heard this, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.”

    After three years with Jesus, His teachable disciples had learned how to do the things Jesus did, but went fishing instead. Jesus instructed His disciples to wait until they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit, (see Acts 1&2). Immediately empowered by Holy Spirit, they crossed over, going from children into adulthood spiritually. They began doing the things, they’d learned from Jesus in the power of His name. “…Peter said, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you. But I’ll give you what I have. In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” Acts 3:6NLT.

    What have we learned from Jesus? He only did “what He sees the Father doing.” Are we like Him, only doing what we’ve seen Him do? We’re to be about the Father’s business. But I believe, we’re living in fear, too frightened to reveal your walk with Christ before men? Am I correct? It’s your choice. You choose.

    PRAYER: Father create a boldness in us to be like You in words and deeds, in Jesus’ name I pray.

  • How do we know if COVID-19 affects people’s mental health?

    When you’re a young doctor and your 60+ y/o Asian father strongly suggests you to become a Youtuber. Yep he believes that every view generates money…

    P.S: I am not a physician, so I am stuck at home like most people and I live under the government’s aid (never thought that would ever happen in my life lol). My father is clearly worried about me not earning enough money during this pandemic and wants me to become an instant Youtube sensation lol

  • Ok, just because I have the word “sex” in my profile does not mean that I am looking for a hookup or a cam girl messaging me and asking to “have some fun”. Sex doesn’t have to be carrying such negative connotations.

    Stop making sex seem like a bad thing or making it to be something superficial or shallow. Just stop.

  • Well, the ideologues invaded a breastfeeding support group I was in. If you can’t guess, the comments were full of helpful articles such as:

    Can Black People be Racist? (spoiler: their answer is no)

    What is White Fragility?

    Black Breastfeeding Week and why we need it (actually relevant and helpful)

    Black Women’s Emotional Labor

    White Women’s Tears

    etc

    Like, there were a few useful things sprinkled in there…that we’d already talked about in the group and addressed frequently…but yeah.

    Note that this WILL be a safe place, now that the bullies have taken over. They browbeat the admins, of whom there were only three, into submission. The big racist crime of the admins, btw? Being white and therefore not having ‘representation’ in the (volunteer fb group) leadership. Never mind that they asked for more admins to apply and nobody of color did. That, and they deleted both black and white women for being rude or racist, when they should never, ever have deleted black women’s comments because they’re more equal than other women and can’t have their ‘voices silenced’ even if they’re doing things like calling people a bitch.

    sigh.

  • I LOVE that people have to wear actual costumes for holodecks. I love how stupid that is. They could just have holoclothes, but no, Harry and Tom have to wear Captain Proton outfits, Kira and Jadzia have to wear wildly ahistorical outfits.

    I love how if they don’t wear costumes, the holocharacters will comment on it! They could programme them not to notice! Instead, they will be like “is it Mardi gras?”

    So stupid! So unnecessary! I love it!

    #honestly Harry and Tom myst wear those outfits outside the holodecks so bad example #BUT #why on an active Starfleet vessel #must the Captain wear a pinstripe suit to play a video game #ridiculous#star trek#holodecks#my posts
