“Everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.” (Mathew 7:24)]
The richest man, Warren Buffet, is successful by practicing the principals of Jesus in his personal and business life.
Jesus is God. His words are in universal applications in all realms of human life. We are in confusion, panic, stress, failure and all possible disorders as we are not hearing Him and applying his words in our daily lives. Any civilized society, nation or individual who are successful are covertly or overtly indebted to Jesus for their healthy, vibrant lives and existence. By pausing in our hectic and unsuccessful lives to contemplate in Jesus and his words, we can correct ourselves. This reflection will bring about a positive and happy change in our lives.
Warren Buffet has some valuable advice for young people :
- Stay away from credit cards and bank loans. Invest in yourself.
- Money does not create man, but it is man who created money.
- Live your life as simple as possible.
- Don't do what others say, just listen to them, but do what you feel.
- Do not buy brand names; just wear those things you feel comfortable in.
- Do not waste your money on unnecessary things; just spend on those who are really in need instead.
- After all it is your life, then why give the chance to others to rule your life.
Conscience question : Are we in anyway, anywhere, anytime in touch with Christ and his principles in our lives?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be close to you by listening and applying your principles of success in our lives. Let us not be disappointed at failures but work harder towards success. Let us learn from other successful people who apply your principles in their daily lives. We pray for all who follow your path. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.

- Today with Jesus
“Leave these men alone! Let them go.” (Acts 5:38)
The sign of the Cross on the television tower in Berlin : “The
sign of unbeatable sign of worship,”- Ronald Regan, President of USA in 1987.
Till the passing of
the present earth and heaven, Christ, his Cross and its principles would be
valued and be in proclamation for the salvation of the world. No power on earth
can wipe out the eternal truth of God from the face of this earth. It is always
better not to fight and antagonize Christ and his principles. When Peter and other disciples were put in
jail to be punished by the assembly of Jews, the great respected learned
teacher, Gamaliel, advised them,
"Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will
fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will
only find yourselves fighting against God” -(Acts 5:38&39). It is an universal law for a smooth peaceful
way of co-operative living on earth.
After the second world
war, Berlin was under Communist government. Most of the churches and its
symbols were destroyed to crush the faith in Jesus. To show the power and
strength of atheism and communism, Walter Ulbech, the head of communist
Germany, constructed the tallest television tower in Germany. On top of the
tower is a stainless steel globe in rotation.
As soon as the construction was over,
everyone was shocked to find a shining and glittering sign of a cross on
the globe from top to bottom. The sun's rays shone on the globe from all sides
making the cross to glitter. The
engineers tried all their might to erase it, but in vain. Still it is there to proclaim to the world
that the cross is our salvation.
Conscience question: Are we in a fight against Christ and
his teachings by our actions of projecting and selling ourselves for self-glorification?
Prayer: Jesus, let us be the promoters of your signs
and symbols of your sacrifice on the cross for our salvation and eternity. Let
us not be destroyers, but custodians of your teachings. We pray for all those
who are in the ministry to spread your good news of salvation on the cross. Let
all those who believe in you be in salvation and the fighters against you be in
conversion. All we ask in the name of Jesus. Amen.
