Misinterpretation of The Bible?

(Source: www.fairviewbiblechurch.org)
In today world, even in the past, Christians are being divided into different denominations. Each claiming to be teaching the right one.

But when we look at all of them, aren't they teaching based on the Bible? Still, why is there still dispute between denominations?

In fact, I could say all of them are correct in their teachings, as long as it is based on Bible.

Interpretation of the Bible could vary between individual, churches and even leaders. There is no such thing as misinterpretation. Just pray for understanding and wisdom when you are reading Bible. That's the only way to make sure you fully understand the Bible.

Reminder of Life

(Source: www.harringtonmuseum.org.uk)
Every now and then we will receive news that someone passed away, be it people close to us, someone we know or even someone we barely know.

Still every piece of news bring about a certain level of shock. It is a good reminder that anytime, our lives may be gone, just like the wind.

Knowing that fact, we might as well strive for the things we want in life. The pursuit of dream.

But despite all that, there is a life that will never died when we grab hold of. That is the life in Christ. The condition is simple, that is to obey the commandment, love what He loves and hate what He hates.

See, I set before you today, life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to Him, and to keep His commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the Lord your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. - Deuteronomy 30 : 14 - 16

When you have hold on to your life in Christ, God will also bless you in whatever you are doing, bless you in the pursuit of your dreams. Just believe and hold on!

Superhero in The House

(Source: www.genderstudieswithsophie.blogspot.com)
The image of father has always been portrayed as a hero in his kids' eyes. As the kids grow, will they still be looking to their father as their hero? Or will it be someone else? A singer? An artist?

How to stay a hero in the family? A man fearing God and loving his family more than himself. That's the kind of father that every kids will look up to even when they have grown up.

It is actually just as simple as that. When a man put away his ego, he has humbled himself as low as he can be. That's the kind of man that would make a good father.

90% : 10%

(Source: www.pravmir.com)
Talking about the 10%, which is Tithe, do brings certain degree of uncomfortable in a lot of Christians. Anything that has got to do with money at some point, will, always be a sensitive issue. New Christians will almost be certain to shown a Bible passage on Tithe & Offering, which is Malachi 3 : 8 - 10. In which somehow, they are required to do so. But the truth is, without a proper heart, there is no meaning to your Tithe and Offering.

Knowing the reason behind a 10% offering (tithe) from whatever we earned is important as well. It all begin by Abraham, and it continued on from his generation, until what we are doing today. Until Jesus taught about freewill offering, but do not confused this with tithing. They are separated. Tithing is an act of acknowledging God's mercy in your life, for everything that you've earned is because of His grace. On the other hand, offering is an act of love towards God and His churches.

At least, we should be thankful when tithing, and not grumble, even when somebody else ask of you.
WHY? Because you still have the 90% left to do what you want.

At the end, don't we all want to see the promise God made in our lives:

... "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
Malachi 3 : 9b
