Danny or Daddy?

The kids had talked Mom into getting a hamster. They promised to take care of their pet. Against her better judgment, she agreed. They named the hamster “Danny.”

True enough, within two months, Mom ended up taking care of Danny. Mom finally decided enough was enough. She called the kids together to tell them. One child said, “I’ll miss him. He’s been around here a long time.” The other child remarked, “Maybe he could stay if he ate less and wasn’t so messy.” But Mom was firm. “It is time to take him to a new home. Danny has to go!”

“Danny?” the kids wailed, “We thought you said Daddy.” [From Sermon Central illustrations]

Seriously now, being a father nowadays is much, much more demanding. Pressures at work and challenges at home would make a lesser man to give up. But when God calls, He enables. The Father called us fathers to lead our families. He will empower us to become the leader He intended us to become. He even spelled out our job description, “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her... Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” (Ephesians 5:25; 6:4, NIV) We lead by loving our wives and bringing our kids in the love of the Lord. And God will make sure we fulfill our calling!

To all dads, happy father’s day!

Dynamic Choices for Success

On June 25, last Sunday of the month, my good friend Francis Kong will speak in our English Worship Service. His topic: Dynamic Choices for Success. He is the president and CEO of Funworks, Inc. (If your kid is studying in MGC New Life Christian Academy, ask them how much they enjoyed Mad Science.) He is also the president of Business Values Foundation and Values Programs Consultant to numerous companies. Plus, he is an author of numerous books, a radio broadcaster and a well-known motivational speaker.

In view of this, I would like to encourage you to invite seekers to attend this exciting event! To help you invite your business associates, your supervisors and employees, ask Sister Joyce for the invitation cards. Though people from other Bible-believing churches are welcome, we are specifically targeting seekers for this event. We want to reach out to people who are still considering the Christian faith. We need to show them that the Bible is really relevant to their daily living. For more information, you may call (8160634) or text me (09206088825).

Brethren, together let us make this event successful!
