“… but with the humble is wisdom.” – Proverbs 11:2

Ah! Mother! Pain is going to increase! It was the painful cry of the sick persons at the time of operation that had been until two centuries before, because no anesthesia was found at that time. The persons in the severity of disease were treated hastily and with puzzle by the doctors on surgery. Then later the anesthesia was found by Simson. It had become a turning point in the history of medicine.


Once when the questions were asked to Simson as which was the important one in your inventions do you think. And his reply was “I found myself as big sinner and Jesus is the savior in my life as the best invention in my life” said Simson. Though Simson had many reasons to exalt him, he humbled himself and added the fame and efficiency to the glory of God. Even today we can see doctors thanking for his medical analytical records and notification. God never forgets to rise up those who humble themselves.

“He who says he abides in Him (in Christ) ought himself also to walk just as He walked” - 1John 2:6

 

If you happened to ask in a society of other religions, “What do you think about Christians?” will they say that Christians can be identified by their good deeds and their love? Or will state Christians attend to churches on every Sunday or will the Christians bear the cross on the neck as a symbol or will they state any other symbols for Christians?

 

An incident happened in the foreign nation/in the western country. Every week the villagers will close/shut up the canteen on Sunday night. When the owner and master of the canteen was asked “Why was more money profiting canteen was closed at the time of peak hours on Sundays.” The owner of master of the canteen replied, “Hence the people attend the church and after their return home the Christians behave violently and wickedly and the canteen workers refuse to work. So, this decision was taken” said owner of the canteen.

“…Why have I found favor in your eyes, that you should take notice of me…” – Ruth 2:10

We read from today’s scripture that by hosting and concern how much good things do favor us. In these days hosting with love is more reduced. No wish to know about the neighbor prevails everywhere. We think that we apt to our work and ourselves and we feel there won’t be any problem. But, if we have love towards the meeting persons and to co-students (boys and girls) co-workers, and to closely admit sick patients, it will be a good chance to share the gospel of Christ.


In today’s scripture portion the rich man Boaz in his field for harvest allowed gleaning the wheat in winnowing barely. He hosted and showed more concern towards Ruth the stranger. He called Ruth as “daughter” and asked other women not to touch or belittle her and asked Ruth to be with women and told to winnow the barely on the floor. And told not to scold her and Boaz revealed out his loving heart to her. These words of Boaz how much might have encouraged Ruth. In ...

Many years before a Methodist preacher lived in Ireland departed to preach the word of God in a village. On his journey 3 thieves stopped him. One of them caught the bridle of the horse. And another fellow showed his gun and asked the preacher to give his money to him. And the third thief watched them.


The preacher who had committed himself for God’s purpose saw those thieves’ - faces very keenly and asked, “Friends, did you pray while you depart from your house? Have you prayed for God’s blessings in your today’s proceeding works?” That question made them one minute to stumble. But they managed themselves and said, “We don’t have time to reply you, give your money to us.”

For that he replied, “I am a poor preacher, I shall give you my little amount whole money” and gave the money to them.

“…she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed to the Lord and wept in anguish.” – 1 Samuel 1:10


 


The prayer of Hannah was very first written in the scripture as the prayer of a woman. She prays before God broken heartedly and agonizingly with tears for long hours. The cause for Hannah’s agony is her childlessness. Her husband’s another wife Peninnah who was a rival to her provoked her with mockery words, piercing words. This made Hannah closer to God’s presence. Peninnah means pearl. But she was not like pearl. But Hannah became pearls by the words of Peninnah.


 


Thus, the fear of Esau made Jacob whether his brother would kill him which stirred him closer to God in prayer fervently. It made Jacob to, “I will not let You go unless You bless me” with wrestling prayer.

“…let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,” – Hebrews 12:1

The heart of a middle aged or above 40 years crossed man already had crossed many crores of heart beats. So he gives importance for diet and exercises and reduces his weight to protect his heart. He takes care about his feelings, worries, fears and suffering that will weaken his heart.

“…we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:10

I was agonized with many questions in my mind, fertility and greenish fields. When God had created many greenish fields, places and beautiful fertile irrigative gardens, why I am put up in this desert? In this life there is no happiness to me nor does any use to others by me such question every day started to rise in me.

“…if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold all things have become new.” – 2 Corinthians 5:17

 

Today let us meditate about the “deceiver” and what happened in Jacob’s life. He deceived his father and brother cunningly, faced and experienced many sufferings and pains in his life. His sufferings and troubles what he had undergone in Shechem seemed enough. At that time God said, “You rise up and go to Bethel and stay there.” Because where Jacob has to be is not Shechem not only, where he stayed is wrong. But his life was also wrong. The people with him owned the other gods.

 

They obeyed God’s word and were ready to journey to God’s showing place. Near the Shechem under the oak tree they buried the gods inside earth, because their old life was buried inside the earth. For the sign of holiness and new life they changed their clothes and started their journey.

“Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret –it only causes harm.” – Psalm 37:8

To a pastor one woman came and said, “I am not able to control my anger.” She told with despair and dullness, “I don’t like to live with this angry nature.” She spoke continuously before the reply. “Even to the mean small things, I used to get tempered and expose anger by losing diligence; but I have one good nature. But all that anger will disappear in few/one- or two-hour’s time.” told that woman very proudly. Hearing that woman’s words “Oh! Is it so, the pistol is also like you! The moment the finger strikes on the trigger with a fraction of winking eyes, the pistol will explode the bullets out and will be calm. But that few hours of time which brings how much worst result, do you see? This is the result of few minutes’ anger.”

Dr. Judson did his missionary work for God in the country of Burma. He worked for many years, days and night and translated the Bible in the Burmese language. Within few days of his translation he was arrested and imprisoned in the horrible cell/shell.

 

His wife had the fear that the government would snatch the translation copy and burn it. So she kept those translated copies buried in the earth. But Judson had the desire to read once at least those translated hand written copies. So he sent the secret message to his wife regarding this. His wife found a way. That is, his wife rolled the hand written script inside the cotton pillow and sent to Judson in the jail. That pillow was there for many days. When Judson was transferred to another jail and that pillow was not allowed to him. The jailor (authority of the jail) threw that pillow far away. It had fallen out of the jail and it was stamped by many people on foot. Judson was unbearably worried about it. But the Lord ...

It seemed as it was stitched on the thin glass and the evening sun light piercing into the wings seemed beautiful and adding more splendor. Little later the butterfly came and hid behind the Arabian Jasmine plant and returned towards me.

“For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers;” – 1Corinthians 4:15

He cunningly attracted the hearts of the people of Israel towards him, and finally he drives David his father away from the throne. At that time some friends were favor of him. They were prime warriors ready to war in the battlefield for David. One day when they warred with Absalom, David commanded his army chief Joab, “Deal gently for my sake with the young man Absalom.” In the later days when David heard the news that Absalom was killed, he wept bitterly with remarks, “O my son Absalom if only I had died in your place!”

The sickness and pains tossed him along with dullness. He tried many times to overcome the dullness. But he could not come out of them.

But though many months passed, it seemed none yielding. I lost my patient. I plucked out it with a thought to plant another sapling.
