A woman took an Uber for a ride. On the way, she remembered that she hasn’t texted her friends yet, one is a newly wed and the other is a friend whose sister had just died. So she started composing a text for each of them.
Suddenly the driver said, “Ma’am malapit na po tayo”. The woman replied, “teka Kuya tatapusin ko lang ang text ko”.
When they approached their destination, the driver slowly pulled on the side and told the woman, “pakidalian ho, kasi baka hulihin tayo”.
So the woman hurriedly finished and sent the text to her friends which says, “Pagkalooban nawa kayo ng Diyos ng maluwalhating pagsasama at masaganang buhay sa mga darating na panahon” (sent to a friend whose sister died); and the other text that says, “nakikiramay ako sa nangyari sa inyong palmilya, nawa ay malampasan ninyo ang mga pagsubok na inyong nararanasan” (sent to the newly wed)
Matino ka bang kausap?
Jesus said, you can be happy if you believe in me.
How do we know if we are true to our faith?
1. Character – doing the right thing because it is the right thing to do. If you do the right thing, you can be sure that you are on the side of the Lord. Because God will never tell you to do something wrong.
2. Compassion – sensitivity to the pains of your neighbor and doing something to alleviate that pain. Jesus said, whatever you do to the least of your neighbor, you’ve done it to me.
3. Cheer – If you know that God is on your side, you will be at peace with your life. People will notice you. You become an inspiration to them.
Happiness is a choice that you make. Start doing something good to your neighbor everyday. Doing good is a sacrifice that you can offer to those who need it most. Start with small things like praying for the souls in purgatory, for purification, that they may enter into heaven.. So that when they are already in heaven, they are the ones who will pray for you. We cannot enter heaven with the slightest sin. We give to God the best in us.
