When you think that Hollywood is full with lust and sinful actors/actresses and the place of most carnal & worldly deception, think again. At least, one actor stood up and proclaim what’s right.
Denzel Washington, one of the world’s most renown actor, spoke at the graduation ceremony at Dillard University. You might think that his message for the graduates is merely to work hard to achieve successes, but suprisingly, he told them much more than that.
The one thing that grabbed my attention the most is when he said, “Put God first in everything you do! Everything I have is by the grace of God. Understand that. It’s a gift.”
I was stunned by how boldly Denzel declared “Christianity”. It’s not something that most Americans are willing to do publicly, unfortunately. I guess he just spilled out the key to his success to the world! 🙂
For my Moslem friends, may you have a blessed and successful Ramadhan month. As some of you might find difficulty finding the Jadwal Sholat & Imsakiyah Ramadhan 2013 – 1434H Online, I’m attaching the PDF below that you could download and carry it with you on your mobile phone or something.
I just want to share a simple lesson that God taught to me today that really blessed me.
This morning, I was listening to Ps. Joseph Prince message about “Qarah”, a Hebrew word for “right timing”. He says that when we are focusing on Jesus, He will lead us in such a way so that we are at the right time and the right place to fulfill His purpose in our life. In the business world, your competitor might have a better product with better price than you. However, somehow you are the one that got the business deal. Isn’t if weird? You product and offer are obviously “lost” to your competitor; but, it’s just so happen that you are at the right place where you met the right person and you are click with that right person, which end up you got the business deal.
How could this happen? It just doesn’t make sense that the inferior could beat the superior. Well friend…that’s exactly the kind of blessing that Jesus promised you, an unmerited favor. You might ask why does God do that? The answer is so that you can’t take any credit for it. God has ALL the credit and glory. You simply can’t take any credit for it, because you can’t earn it, even though you want it.
This afternoon, Multiply Indonesia, the place where I work, just held a gift-exchange event to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Strangely, out of 50 people who participated in this event, I got this Android cup/action figure. And if you know me, I’m a big fan of Android, so I’m thinking, how in the world I can get this Android cup and not the other 49 gifts that I could’ve picked randomly.
I really encourage you to read the blog post from one of NCC Singapore’s member about “God-Moments Give You Success“. I hope it can be a blessing to you as it is for me.
As usual, I welcome any comments on the comment section below. Have a blessed day!
