Things I want to tell my kids just in case I leave the world early


Here are a few things that I'd like my loved ones to remember just in case I won't be there anymore to tell them this personally.

1> Believe in God.Know and love God above all else. You will meet a lot of people who will tell you that God doesn't exist but I tell you, you don't have to look far to see God.  Just look at yourself and almost everything around you. See the harmony of all the universe.  It can't be a product of randomness.  It can't be a big mistake.

2> Me and your mum's legacy to you is that we were able to migrate to Australia. This is aside from giving you the best possible education that we can afford.  Please don't waste it my engaging in drugs or any useless form of activity that has caused the ruin of many young people in today's world.

3> Education is very important.  You must have this hunger to learn new things.  You must always have this drive to improve yourselves everyday.

4> Respect everyone specially the elder ones.  Older people have made mistakes that you haven't even imagined yet.  Most of them, have learned from their mistakes.  It is wise to hear them out so that you don't commit the same and be a step ahead in this game of life.

5> Never ever give up on life.  You will never succeed every time but the important thing is that you tried and you gave it your all when you did.  Losing or failing is not as bad as everyone thinks.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
