One morning at our backyard, I chanced upon this solitary type of bee busily boring a hole into a branch of an angel's trumpet flower tree. It's amazing that this ever busy creature, that can sometimes be rugged when boring a hole into a tree branch, is most of the time a gentle creature when it cautiously lands on fragile flowers everyday to sip nectar without leaving a scratch on the petals. Now that is what we may call "adapta-bee-lity".

While it is necessary to be tough sometimes when challenges call for it, yet it is always gentleness that is more adaptable most of the time.

Adaptability is the ability of an entity or creature to alter itself or its responses to the changed circumstances or environment. Adaptability shows the ability to learn from experience and improves the suitability of the learner as a fellow agent of change in its environment.


That which lures and attracts

When you find yourself getting very interested in investing your self in something despite the cost;

When you discover the passion to want to know the fullness of that something and learn from it;

When inside you burns the drive to see that thing give its full potential and be a success;

And when that something could be an entity or a person whose visions you are so much willing to support;

Then, that thing or entity or person has got you! You may have not realized it yet, but that thing or entity or person has already got the greatest catch of all... YOU!

Kahalintulad sa isang isdang nabingwit. Sa lahat ng isda sa dagat, ikaw yung isa rin sa mga lumangoy patungo sa pain na ito at nilunok mo rin ito.

But when you know that it is the "Master Fisher of men" who is holding His fishing line, then be lured by His bait and be caught by His hook. Otherwise, swim away quickly!

The day is coming when the Lord shall cast a hook into the sea and shall take up the fish that comes up first. He will open its mouth and take out something that is in it and on purpose give it to them who urged for it.


In God's kingdom we find purpose

The Author of the universe did not simply cause you to exist by just some normal random act of chance. Rather, He created you for a divine purpose. In God's kingdom, all of the creation shall discover their respective ultimate purpose.

Jesus, while He was on earth, had told so many things that described what the kingdom of God is like. In essence, He was describing the way of life and how things work in God's kingdom. He was revealing creation's ultimate purpose in the heavenly kingdom!

Therefore, the most fruitful and meaningful thing we can achieve in life is to live life according to God's purpose for creating us.

Whatever status in life we might be in, and whatever endeavors we might be trying to accomplish, let all of these be according to God's purpose for all of us in His kingdom.
