“Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will
never enter it.” – Mark 10:15
Let me share with you a Filipino
Magtanim ay di biro (Planting rice
is never fun)
Maghapong nakayuko (Bent from morn till sunset)
Di naman makatayo (Cannot stand)
Di naman makaupo (Cannot sit)
This is one of the most important life principles that we must all learn if we intend to shift from success and move towards significance. It’s called the Law of the Farm.
What you sow, you will reap. If you don’t plant, there’ll be no harvest. When you want fruits, work on the roots. Those who plant in tears shall reap rejoicing. By the fruits you will
know the tree. To harvest is to reap more than what you sowed.
I believe that when Jesus said, “Unless we become like little children,” He doesn’t just call us to be childlike, but more so, to respect the power of our potentials. As seeds promise anorchard, children promise heroes. We must see not only our present problems but also our potential to solve them and to bless the world.
Reflect: When we see children, what do we see — problems or potentials? Respect your inner child. He is your potential giant!
Lord, we come to You weak and vulnerable. Bless us, heal us, and transform us, so You can send us out strong and mighty. Amen.
