Bakit may Mahirap?
Dito nga na-iiba si Cristo kumpara sa pinagsamang kakayanan at karunungan ng mga tao.
Jn 9:1 And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man who was blind from his birth.
Jn 9:2 And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who sinned, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
Jn 9:3 Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.
Jn 9:6 When he had thus spoken, he spit on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
Jn 9:7 And said to him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went therefore, and washed, and came seeing.
Maaaring maitanong ninyo, papaano mahahayag ang gawa ng Dios sa kanya eh bulag nga? Papaano mahahayag ang gawa ng Dios sa mga pilay, pipi, bingi at mga walang anoman?
Mt 10:42 And whoever shall give to drink to one of these little ones, a cup of cold water only, in the name of a disciple, verily, I say to you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.
Prov 19:17 He that hath pity upon the poor, lendeth to the LORD; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
Sa isang malalim na pag-aanalisa, hindi ba mahahayag ang gawa ng Dios sa mga bulag, pingkaw, pilay, pipi, bingi at sa mga walang anoman sa kadahilanang kung wala sila, wala tayong magagawan ng mabuti upang tayo naman na walang kapintasang physical ay maligtas?
Lk 14:13 But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
Lk 14:14 And thou shalt be blessed: for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
Sino nga ba ang gagawan natin ng mabuti upang tayo ay maging dapat sa Dios, yun bang kaibigan o kapitbahay nating mayayaman?
Lk 14:12 Then said he also to him that invited him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbors; lest they also invite thee again, and a recompense be made thee.
Sa loob ng ating tahanan ay may mga kasangkapan tayong nahahandang gamitin at mayroon namang hindi puedeng gamitin dahil ito ay marumi pa. Ikaw na tao, gagamitin mo ba ang basong marumi kung uhaw na uhaw ka na? Hindi ba yung malinis na baso ang gagamitin mo? Datapwa’t marumi man kung ito’y malilinis, hindi ba ito’y kagamit-gamit din? Ang inodoro kung marumi ay ikasisirang-puri bagama’t kung malinis ay nahahandang gamitin ng may-ari.
2 Tim 2:20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and of silver, but also of wood and of earth; and some to honor, and some to dishonor.
2 Tim 2:21 If a man therefore will cleanse himself from these, he will be a vessel to honor, sanctified and meet for the master’s use, and prepared to every good work.
Kaya nga, kapag makakakita tayo ng bulag, pingkaw, pipi, bingi o mga walang anoman ay huwag natin silang pagtawanan, sapagka’t kailangan natin sila upang tayo ay maligtas. Kailangang may mabigyan tayo ng kahit isang basong malamig na tubig upang inumin at kung maaari ay isang drum na, kasama na pati pampaligo. Ito ang ating pananampalataya, ito ang ating kaligtasan.
Jas 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
Jas 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Kaya sa tanong na “Bakit may mahirap”? Dahil kung walang dukha, walang paraan ang mayayaman upang maligtas. Sino nga kaya ang gagawan nila ng mabuti kung pare-pareho tayong mayayaman? Sino ang Farmer, Janitor, Street Sweeper, Kasambahay o Basurero kung pare-parehas na tayong mayaman. Bagama’t mahirap sa mayaman ang ipamigay ang pinaghirapan.
Lk 18:25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
kaya nga ito ang bilin sa mga mayayaman at yumayaman.
1 Tim 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;
1 Tim 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate;
1 Tim 6:19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.
Magisip-isip ka Kapatid na mayaman, pitong pung taon (70) ka lang mabubuhay o kung dahil sa kalakasan ay maaaring umabot ka ng walong pung taon (80), saan ka dadalhin ng iyong kayamanan.
Ps 90:10 The days of our years are seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty years, yet is their strength labor and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.
Sana naimulat din ni Cristo ang iyong mga mata!
