The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks – Proverbs 30:26

A few days ago our 10 month old son, James, was running away from my wife’s giant exercise ball. For some strange reason, James did not want to be near the ball and quickly crawled away when he looked at it. We thought it was probably because the ball was bigger than him, but, one day I took James with me to where the ball was to demonstrate that the ball was inoffensive. To my surprise, he was not scared anymore with the giant ball. The reason was simple: Although the ball was bigger than him, Daddy was bigger than the ball, and he was with Daddy.

Wiser than the Wisest: A Lesson on Preparation.

concept work, team of ants

There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer. – Proverbs 30:24-25

Wow! What lessons Agur learned from four small creatures, which, despite having certain weaknesses, had more wisdom to teach than many wise men. The first creatures that were carefully observed by Agur were the small ants. What Agur observed was that the ants did not have much strength within themselves.  Probably never would see them fight a bear or a lion, but their wisdom was not located in their strength. The wisdom of the ants lied in their preparation.  They prepared themselves in the summer for the winter.

What a great lesson for us! The victory does not depend upon our strength; the victory depends upon our preparation. The biggest question is: what are you preparing for in your life? Everything you do, voluntarily or involuntarily, is preparing for something – either to have victory in every area of your life, or a defeat. It is not necessary to be the strongest or the smartest, simply, you need to be prepared for victory.

Es Tiempo de Hablar

“Y les mando que no le dijesen a nadie; pero cuanto más les mandaba, tanto mas y mas lo divulgaban” (Marcos 7:36)

Vivimos en tiempos de silencio. En los matrimonios nadie quiere ser el primero en hablar para solucionar los problemas, Sabemos que algo anda mal con nuestros hijos pero simplemente preferimos quedarnos callados y no intervenir, Como cristianos ya no queremos hablar a otros sobre Jesús por miedo a ofender o a incomodar.
