The Cup of Christ

Will you drink from the cup of Christ?

It is a cup of humility, but also of true greatness.

It is a cup of service, but also of refreshment from the Lord.

It is a cup of suffering, but also of salvation. Not only for yourself, but for many.

Will you drink from the cup of Christ?

Can you drink the cup that I drink or be baptized with the baptism with which I am baptized?

Whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. For the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many. — Mark 10:38,43-45

A life full of wonder

… is a life full of hope.

A_Life_Full_Of_Wonder.jpg

It is a life of pursuing a vision or chasing a dream.

It is a life of constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, of expanding the limits of your imagination.

It is a life of challenging the status quo.

It is a life of living in faith and with faith.

It is a life worth living.

Open the eyes of your heart. Fill them with wonder and amazement.

May the eyes of your hearts be enlightened, that you may know what is the hope that belongs to his call, what are the riches of glory in his inheritance among the holy ones. — Ephesians 1:18

How to be interesting

Living meaningfully makes life even more interesting.

How_To_Be_Interesting.jpg

The people I follow online are those whom I find interesting: Seth Godin, Austin Kleon, Chris Guillebeau, John Gruber, Malcolm Gladwell, Dr. Scott Hahn, Fr. Mike Schmitz, Jeff Cavins, and Bro. Bo Sanchez.

I also follow people who are no longer living like Vincent Van Gogh and Dr. Seuss.

What makes them interesting, at least for me, is how interested or passionate they are about one thing.

But more than being interested in something, they are also invested in it. They add value to it through the work that they do. They are consistent. They work hard.

I guess if we wish to be interesting as well, we have to:

  1. be interested ourselves (and keep learning),

  2. work hard (and add value), and

  3. be brave enough to share our work.

By being interested, we can live interesting lives.

But more than living interesting lives so that people will follow us, let us also live meaningful lives so that we can affect other people’s lives for the better. So that God will be glorified.

You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.

Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father. — Matthew 5:13-16

Living meaningfully makes life even more interesting.

P.S. Then, there is someone else I am striving to follow. He’s the most interesting of all. But, following him requires faith, commitment, and dying to oneself. That’s Jesus.
