Job 29 Man

Date a guy who aims to be a Job 29 Man.  Do you know the characteristics of a Job 29 Man? Well.. Let me tell you.

He is the kind of guy who would rather stay at home reading his bible on a Friday night and spending time with God worshiping Him than to be out partying with a group of friends on a Friday night.

He is the kind of guy who constantly longs for God’s presence and who walks closely with Him.He desires for his heart to be transformed into His. Even if life gets tough, he knows that The Mighty One is holding his every moment and nothing seemed to be too difficult for him.

He is also a genuine follower of Christ. He knows that in order to be a great leader, he needs to learn how to be a genuine follower. Don’t be surprise if this guy is well respected and everyone greets him & honors him. That’s because whenever he speaks, he speaks with love and grace. And when he walks, he walks with confidence and boldness Just like King David, he knows that his identity isn’t based on his height or stature, but on Christ alone.

With that said, he is also very passionate about Jesus and His Gospel. You’ll know that he is because he will find a way to always help other people. He will help that blind lady cross the street and become her eyes, or even help that lame old man to stand up and be his feet. He will also stand up for those who are being mocked and persecuted. Even if it means him getting hurt, he will not fight back just like how Jesus did not fight back when He was being brutally tortured and beaten to death. That’s when you’ll know he is a solid follower of Christ.

Also don’t forget, if ever you get to sit next to him during worship, watch and observe him how he worships God. . I’m talking about eyes closed, hands raised or perhaps you’ll see him open His bible and even read and then next thing you know, he’s on his knees crying. It’s contagious! So you want to make sure you sit next to him during worship coz man, He knows how to worship Jesus with such reverence and awe

One of the coolest things about a Job 29 Man is that he knows that he’s not perfect. He acknowledges his flaws and mistakes. But that doesn’t bother him because he knows that he is constantly being renewed everyday by His perfect Savior Christ. So it’s normal for him to be prideful sometimes, but whenever that happens, he immediately repents and turns his eyes to God.

Another thing about a Job 29 Man is that unlike any other guys, he has made a covenant with his eyes to not look at any woman lustfully. He knows that your beauty is far more than what you look like on the outside, it’s about letting Jesus shine from the inside. So for him, what matters is your heart, not any of your body ‘parts’

So Ladies, If you end up dating this kind of guy, a Job 29 Man, consider yourself blessed because you know God gave him to you. The LORD has specifically hand picked him just for you and prepared the both of you for each other. He’s not the kind of guy who jumps from one girl to the other. No, he is patient and he waits upon the LORD and His perfect timing. He embraces Matthew 6:33 ‘to seek Him first and His kingdom and let the other things be given at the right time’

So Ladies, if you’re single and not married and you have the desire to be married one day, this is probably the right time to for you to pray for your Job 29 Man. Why? Because this man is going to be the man who will love you, lead you, help you, defend you, cherish you, adore you, raise your future kids and teach them the way of Jesus.

So yeah, date a guy who has all these God-given characteristics. Someone who is a Job 29 Man. Or better yet, marry a guy who loves Jesus.

The Centennial Graduation Speech

My fellow Benildean Lasallians, dear parents, relatives and friends  of the graduates, and you, graduates, Mr. and Ms. 7 % — good morning!

Why “7%”? Because the latest statistics tell us that out of every 100 students who enroll in Grade 1, only 7%–yes, 7%–complete a college degree! And, modesty aside, how many from those 7% have been able to graduate from an institution that has the caliber of faculty and facilities found in De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde? I will return to the 7% later.

As you all know, seventeen days ago we began celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Lasallian presence in the Philippines. That presence began in 1911 with just nine Brothers in one school in Manila and 100 students. Today, after two world wars and a bloody massacre and after witnessing the end of one colonial period and the birth of a new republic, that one school has bloomed into seventeen schools throughout the country, and the 100 students have become nearly 100,000. And there you have an additional blessing, dear graduates, for not only are you among the fortunate 7% this year, but you also graduate on a very special and memorable occasion.

You probably thought you were done with exams, test, and quizzes. Well, surprise, surprise, I have one final quiz before you leave. It’s just one fill-in-the-blanks sentence, and all you have to answer is just one word.

Okay? This is the sentence: “Every human being wants to be ____”. What is your answer? Successful? Rich? Fulfilled? The word that I find most appropriate is “happy”. All of us, whether rich or poor, whether college graduates or grade school drop-outs, Americans, Africans or Asians—all of us want to be happy.

The problem lies in knowing HOW to achieve happiness.

Some people look for happiness in the wrong places: substance abuse, gambling, sex, and all kinds of dead-ends that lead to addictions. Mind you, it’s still happiness that they’re looking for, but unfortunately they expect to find it in the wrong places. A much greater majority are deceived into thinking they will find happiness in the four “P’s”—power, prestige, pleasure, and pera. This is definitely the more dangerous illusion. Let me explain. As we came closer to our Centennial celebration, a number of Lasallians were asking, “What have we accomplished these past 100 years?

And the natural tendency was to rattle off the names of Lasallians who have become business leaders, presidents of companies, presidents of banks, respected politicians (I add the “What do we have to show for it?” adjective “respected” because not all politicians deserve to be respected), cabinet secretaries, well-known lawyers, and the list can go on.

And, truly, we can come up with a pretty impressive list of Lasallians. But in the end, I think the only logical Christian reaction to such a list is summed up in two words: so what? Do not get me wrong. I am not against achievement. We all have a responsibility to develop our talents and abilities to the fullest, and in so doing it is but natural that people will rise to the top of their professions. And that is the way it should be.

What I mean by reacting with “so what?” is that all those titles may impress people, but they do not tell me anything about those matters in which life is lived to the fullest, and, in fact, where genuine happiness is found. They do not tell me, for example, if the person is a faithful spouse and a loving father or mother. They do not tell me if that person’s life inspires others to become better human beings. They do not tell me if that person stands up for his or her convictions, regardless of what others may say. They do not tell me if that person is compassionate towards his fellow Filipinos who are disadvantaged and oppressed, his or her relationship with God. Achievements do not tell me whether that person is a man or woman of integrity. And yet how easily we are dazzled by rank and bank, by name and fame.

As I said, don’t get me wrong. I am not against achievement and rising to the top. But that is not enough. We must look deeper into what lies behind those achievements, because, as history shows, evil people can also become heads of international conglomerates, or governors, or even presidents of countries. So we must ask, what motivates them?

What are the values behind these titles and achievements? I am leading to the Benildean core values: to possess a genuine sense of nationhood, to be socially responsible, and to be deeply rooted in faith. If these three core values underpin your future success, then you can count yourself as a true Benildean.

To go back to the topic of happiness, wouldn’t it be great if we could enroll in the course, “Bachelor of Science in Humanity, major in Happiness”? But we can’t. Why not? Why can’t colleges and universities offer a degree like that? Because chasing after happiness, as someone Nothing more and nothing less than three of our once said, is like chasing after a butterfly. The more you pursue it directly, the faster it flies away from you. Happiness is always a by-product. It is the result of doing something else.

Your enrolling in Benilde, wasn’t it part of your plan to ensure that you lead a happy life in the future? But that “happy life” that you want for yourselves entails acquiring an education that goes beyond simply completing a degree. It must also include making the Benildean core values part of your life. I have already referred to three of our six core values. Let me tell you a story in relation to the three other core values: In ancient Japan, a Samurai and a Tea Master one time found themselves walking along the same road to a distant land.

After striking up a friendship, they decided to travel together.

As they went through village after village the Tea Master was impressed by the attention, the respect, and the homage the local people gave the Samurai. One day, when the Samurai was resting, the Tea Master decided to put on the Samurai’s clothing, sword, mask, and all. Then he ventured out into the village, and immediately felt elated at the attention and respect the people gave him. But this was soon cut short when, as he turned a street, another Samurai confronted him saying, “Who are you? How dare you enter into my territory! Who gave you permission to come here?” stunned and terrified by the Samurai’s challenge that he couldn’t speak. The Samurai continued, “I challenge you to a duel to the death. Come back here at dawn.”

The Tea Master scurried back to his Samurai friend’s room shaking with fear and recounted what had happened and asked for his help. The Samurai friend responded, “That’s your problem. yourself into this mess. You get out of it.” The next morning, after a sleepless night, the Tea Master picked up all the paraphernalia which he used to make tea as well as his Samurai friend’s outfit and sword, and went to the place designated for the duel. When he saw his opponent, he said to him, “Sir, before our duel, let me prepare you some tea.” His opponent agreed, saying to himself, “It will nice to have some tea before I kill this intruder.”

So the Tea Master took out his tea cups and everything he needed to make the tea. As you know, for the Japanese, the preparation of tea is both a skill and an art. With expert precision he prepared the tea and went through the detailed ceremony. When the opponent Samurai saw how expertly the Tea Master had prepared the tea, he said to himself, “If this man can prepare tea so expertly, I wonder how skilled he must be as a Samurai!” And so he said to the Tea Master, “Since you have honored me with this excellent tea ceremony, I forgive you for having entered my territory. We can call off the duel.” Well, you can imagine how relieved the Tea Master was!

What can we glean from this story? First, that the Tea Master was professionally competent, not in samurai martial arts, but in his own profession. That’s what got him out of trouble. So, Benildean core value number four: professional competence. Your studies and other Benildean experiences to be able to claim you are professionally competent?

Next, by turning what would have been sure defeat into victory, didn’t the Tea Master prove how creative he was? Benildean core value number five: creativity. Aside from all those creative excuses you concocted for turning in your assignments and projects late, have you become more creative as a Benildean?

Sixthly, yes, it’s true that by trying to impersonate his samurai friend, the Tea Master showed a lack of appreciation for his own worth, but the experience with the other samurai quickly taught him to appreciate his own skills and who he was as Tea Master. Benildean value number six: appreciation of individual worth, Are you more appreciative of who you are as a unique individual and have you deepened your appreciation of the uniqueness of others?

What does all this have to do with the quest for happiness? Well, as I said earlier, happiness is a by-product, a by-product of our values and the actions that flow from them. Therefore, my dear graduates, learn from the Tea Master and be true to yourself and to who you are as a person with unique gifts and talents. Be true to yourself and your values as a Benildean Lasallian. Believe in, and build on your talents and strengths. Be thoroughly professional in your chosen field. Do these, and you will have lived out those three Benildean core values.

Before I end, let me return to the “7%”. Can you imagine that— only 7% of every starting group of 100 Grade One students finish college!

How is this country going to grow and develop? And who are the ones best qualified to lead that progress if not you, the 7%? “To whom much has been given, much is expected,” as the Scriptures say. It shouldn’t surprise you, then, to find “a genuine sense of nationhood” and “socially responsible” among our Benildean core values.

The good news is that serving others almost inevitably results in that by-product called happiness. Those of you who participated in Benilde’s Summer of Service, or relevant NSTP activities, or reach-out activities know that from personal experience. It’s very simple: if you want to live a meaningful life, if you want to be happy, make sure you find ways of serving others, especially the poor and the underprivileged.

Dear graduates, you are like Tea Masters, serving not tea, but serving hope for the future. You are the pioneer Lasallian presence in society for the next 100 years! You, this year’s 7%, can, no, must make a difference for future generations of Filipinos.

Lyrics: I live, I breathe

I live, I breathe
I did nt deserve your grace

But still you took my place
Because you love me
And for you it wasn’t enough to save my soul
To set me free and make me whole
You had a plan for me a destiny for my life
Chorus
So I live to give You glory
And I breathe to give You praise
You paid the ransom for me
And you took away my shame
You said the you delight in me
And I know your word is true
I live, I breathe, I love to worship You
Now I receive your grace
I receive your mercy
Cause I wanna be like You
To follow your heart
And for me it wasn’t enough to take your name
accept your gift and remain the same
I want to honor you and bless you all of my days
So I live to give you glory
And I breathe to give you praise
You paid the ransom for me
And you took away my shame
You said the delight in me
And Iknow your word is true
I live, I breathe, I love to worship you
I worship you, I worship you (2x)
I honor you, I honor you (2x)
So I live to give you glory
And I breathe to give you praise
You paid the ransom for me
And you took away my shame
You said the delight in me
And Iknow your word is true
I live, I breathe, I love to worship you

I live, I breathe

TAKE TIME TO READ THIS

DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS?



Death is certain but the Bible speaks about untimely death! Make a personal reflection about this….. Very interesting, read until the end…..


It is written in the Bible (Galatians 6:7): ‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sow, that shall he also reap.


Here are some men and women who mocked God :


John Lennon (Singer):

Some years before, during his interview with an American Magazine, he said:

‘Christianity will end, it will disappear. I do not have to argue about that. I am certain. Jesus was ok, but his subjects were too simple, today we are more famous than Him’ (1966).


Lennon was shot six times.


Tancredo Neves (President of Brazil ):

During the Presidential campaign, he said if he got 500,000 votes from his party, not even God would remove him from Presidency.

Sure he got the votes, but he got sick a day before being made President, then he died.


Cazuza (Bi-sexual Brazilian composer, singer and poet):

During A show in Canecio ( Rio de Janeiro ), while smoking his cigarette, he puffed out some smoke into the air and said:’God, that’s for you.’

He died at the age of 32 of LUNG CANCER in a horrible manner.


The man who built the Titanic

After the construction of Titanic, a reporter asked him how safe the Titanic would be. With an ironic tone he said: ‘Not even God can sink it’

The result: I think you all know what happened to the Titanic


Marilyn Monroe (Actress)

She was visited by Billy Graham during a presentation of a show. He said the Spirit of God had sent him to preach to her. After hearing what the Preacher had to say, she said: ‘I don’t need your Jesus’.

A week later, she was found dead in her apartment


Bon Scott (Singer)

The ex-vocalist of the AC/DC. On one of his 1979 songs he sang: ‘Don’t stop me; I’m going down all the way, down the highway to hell’.

On the 19th of February 1980, Bon Scott was found dead, he had been choked by his own vomit.


Campinas (IN 2005)

In Campinas, Brazil, a group of friends, drunk, went to pick up a friend….. The mother accompanied her to the car and was so worried about the drunkenness of her friends, she said to the daughter holding her hand, who was already seated in the car: ‘My Daughter, Go With God And May He Protect You.’

She responded: ‘Only If He (God) Travels In The Trunk, Cause Inside Here…..It’s Already Full ‘


Hours later, news came by that they had been involved in a fatal accident. Everyone had died, the car could not be recognized what type of car it had been, but surprisingly, the trunk was intact. The police said there was no way the trunk could have remained intact. To their surprise, inside the trunk was a crate of eggs, none was broken


Christine Hewitt (Jamaican Journalist and entertainer)

said the Bible (Word of God) was the worst book ever written.

In June 2006 she was found burnt beyond recognition in her motor vehicle.


Many more important people have forgotten that there is no other name that was given so much authority as the name of Jesus. Many have died, but only Jesus died and rose again, and he is still alive.


‘Jesus’


PS: If it was a joke, you would have sent it to everyone. So are you going to have courage to send this?.


I have done my part, Jesus said. ‘If you are embarrassed about me, I will also be embarrassed about you before my father.’


I am not breaking this. No way!



Bishop T.D. Jakes ‘8 Second Prayer.’ Just repeat this prayer and see how God moves!!


‘Lord, I love you and I need you, come into my heart, and bless me, my family, my home, and my friends, in Jesus’ name. Amen.’


Pass this message to 8 people {EXCEPT YOU AND ME}


‘Let go & let God, He knows best!

National Survey: DLS-CSB graduates get hired fast

 Mary Tan, The Benildean Reporter

 

Based on the national survey done by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) ranked second highest among 35 other colleges in terms of employability rate.

DLS-CSB Special Assistant to the President Mr. Neil Pariñas said, “Based on the presentation of the Secretary of Labor and Employment last 2005, the graduates of the University of the Philippines get hired the fastest in one to two months time. DLS-CSB graduates get hired faster second.”

“DOLE and CHED required us to do a survey among the graduates of DLS-CSB from school year 2000-2001 to 2003-2004, which we submitted to them. Among those graduates, 633 of them complied,” he shared.

Survey Says

Based on the survey, 31% of the total respondents are officials, executives, managers, or supervisors, and 43% of them have a median annual salary of 210,000 pesos. As Pariñas said, “Most of the people who answered the survey are fresh graduates, but their salaries are already high.”

When the respondents were asked which personal and academic background made them employable, most answered factors like personality, competencies learned in school, and the reputation of DLS-CSB. “So even the employers have trust in our school,” Pariñas added.

Also, the employability rate of DLS-CSB students is not dependent on the place of residence, civil status, age and year graduated. 78% of the respondents are very satisfied with their jobs and 43% say that their first jobs are related to their course in DLS-CSB.

Final Words

“I think it is about knowing what you want in life and pursuing it. Control the things in your control, and pray for the things beyond your control.” Pariñas said. “It’s about knowing your purpose. If you’re given the opportunity, you have to give your best. In the long process, it’s not about money but your own happiness.”

Pariñas compared DLS-CSB to a flashlight. “The flashlight has a dispersed light when turned on. But when the light concentrated, it becomes laser that can be used to operate on people or even cut through metal. DLS-CSB is currently a flashlight, and we must do everything we can in order to concentrate that light and become a laser.” He added that “We have the resources; all you have to do is to do well—to give your best, and we can shine.”

Do not be influenced by anything worthless… Be a lotus. it has to start with one, to fill a pond with more. ” we’ve one life left to live…so being a light, burn out bright!
