REWARD vs REGRET (Part I)
By: Pauline Lee
(I can be reached at fsteps@tm.net.my. Unfortunately I do not subscribe to Faithwriter's Private Messaging service)

The economic drought has cast a spell of fear among all nations. I, for one, was not left out of the equation. My business now hits rock bottom and I feel life is at road's end. Reports predict that more dreadful challenges have yet to come. Now that the earth is plagued with a deadly contagious disease, I am left to wonder what can be worse. With hundreds of thousands retrenched from their jobs, the high possibility of crimes and depression among our people will certainly rise.

But I heard a message from the pulpit one Sunday that left me with a serious undertaking. It was the message of The Cross. Though all about the cross amazes me, it was one particular subject from the pastor that spoke to me - REWARD versus REGRET. We understand about storing treasures in heaven and keeping our lives on earth focused on serving God. But when disaster strikes us, we become like the apostle Peter - questioning God and declining the truth about suffering in Matthew 16:22. We let our faith be tested and we are captured by the common tribulation. So how different are we from the world?

I am left with either the choice to drag myself into the pits and remain there or rise up and be challenged to do something good. The objective should not be monetary gain. The objective should be Christ. So I am now into the business of helping people. I begin the day by calling people, listening to their struggles, sharing testimonies, encouraging and praying, researching and gathering news that can help people, etc. You must be wondering how I can potentially feed myself with charitable activities like these? But I tell myself that I do not want to regret my days by feeling dispirited or defeated. I have not gone hungry that I have to beg. Neither have I lost my shelter that I have to sleep in the streets. If these were my last days, I want to bind on earth what that will be bound in heaven (Matthew 16:19).

TO BE CONTINUED ...




If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
