Conversation with Tatay

Tatay: (In Tagalog) Liza, do you and B still read the Bible daily on your own?

Liza: (uhmmmm...unsure how to answer) Yes....not everyday, but we do read it on our own regulary....

Tatay: (In Tagalog) I have been re-reading the Old Testament lately and it's amazing how even though I have it a couple of times already, I still get something new everytime I read it. Here's an example. Have you read these verses yet?

He pointed me to Hagai Chapter 1 verse 5:

5Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts, "Consider your ways!

6"You have (G)sown much, but harvest little;

you eat, but there is not enough to be satisfied;

you drink, but there is not enough to become drunk;

you put on clothing, but no one is warm enough;

and he who earns, earns wages

to put into a purse with holes."

7Thus says the LORD of hosts,

"Consider your ways!

Yes, it's a subtle reminder to always put God first in our lives....
