Vignettes From The Pearly Gates (Part 7)


(Day 7)

God is not seeking for perfect men, He knows we can never be perfect; He is not seeking for self righteous and seemingly "good" men, only God is truly good and righteous. He is seeking men with these qualities: "This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit and trembles at my word." (Isaiah 66: 2b)

Sana bigyan ng panginoon ng liwanag asawa ko para maging humble din at matakot minsan, mabait aswa ko pero pag na stress sama ng bibig hehehe.

Thanks for the post Sir Mel.

Hi Shy,
Let's both pray for that. All humans are works in progress so long as they acknowledge God in their lives. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Yes, no one is perfect..sabi nga walang perpekto na tao....ngunit may tao na ang pangalan ay PERPEKTO..

Hi Arvin,
Hahaha, you are so funny Arvin. But I agree with your observation. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

but humility is difficult to achieve because sometimes a person is so convinced that he knows everything and that he doesn't need anyone anymore even the Lord. i pray to God that i wouldn't be like that because that's scary. if you don't believe in anyone but yourself, to whom would you look up when things go wrong? that would be so sad..

Hi Kimmy,
You are so right. Actually, that was the sin of Lucifer who was so enamored with his beauty and superior qualities that he begun to worship himself and rebel against God. And we know what happened to him. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Tintin,
We can always strive to be perfect but we can never be one because only God is perfect. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Dhemz,
We must all learn to control our emotions before they start to control us. Having a peaceful frame of mind helps a lot in doing that. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
