I honestly don't feel like writing right now. However, I just want to write. I want to write because I simply want to write. I want to write about many things in this world. I want to write about people. People who have different personalities; people who have different social status and people who have different life story. I want to write about a world so diverse and different and yet a world that has only one goal. That goal is is to return back to God. However, people don't realize this. I myself is having difficulty to accept it.
There are so many cultures in this world. The world is so diverse and so different, that it is difficult for a person to recognize a single goal that each one has despite the cultural barriers that surrounds him. I am a Filipino. You can be a Japanese or an American or a fellow Filipino but a completely different person. I could be a doctor, you could be the President. I could be a student, you can also be a student from a different school. I could be everything else except you. You can be everything else except me. You and I are different but we have a single goal. That goal is to seek God above all things. But who is God?
Because the world is so diverse, there is also a diverse meaning of a single word. Good to a person could mean survival, while good for another could mean sacrifice. In the same way, God for a person could mean “just out there”. God could also mean “material possession”. God for some is “a fiction”. But who is God for you and me? If there is a God who is defined as all-powerful, all-knowing and all-present; what kind of a God is He? Is he a Loving God? Or a monster? Is God really what we need? Or is he a secondary option? What do you think?
Who is God for you?
How do you take him to be?
Do you have a God?
Does the real God care?
There are at least four billion people in this world. Each one has a different answer. If you try to find the answer among the four billion possible answer, you'll get confuse. With so many answers to a single question, no wonder this world id so confuse. There must be a a manual that can guide man cause if there isn't one, than how can four billion people find peace among each other?
Have you tried the Bible?
Have you tried Jesus?
That is the question.
