John 6:26

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you understood the miraculous signs.

There is a saying: there is no permanent friends, but only personal interest. Ganoon din sa mga OFW, maraming tao kilala ka lang dahil alam nila na nasa abroad ka at malakas kumita. Alam nila may mapapala sila sa pakikisama sa iyo but the moment mawalan ka na sa abroad at wala ka nang maibibigay, maraming iiwan sa iyo. You will be on your own. Even Jesus knows this na maraming taong gusto sumunod kuno, pero gusto lang palang kumain lang at mabusog but the genuine affection is not there.

Avoid people who will use you, overuse you and abuse you. Sila yung mga ‘youser’ dahil mabango ka lang pag meron ka. Pero isang mabahong isda ka pa din someday.

Tama ang sabi sa Bibliya na mahalin mo ang iba gaya ng pagmamahal mo sa iyong sarili. But the basic principle is: mahalin mo ang iyong sarili. How would you do it? By being good to yourself and make sure na balang araw hindi ka pabigat sa iba.

Tama ang lyrics ng kanta ng The Youth: “Bakit ang pera may mukha…bakit ang tao mukhang pera.” It’s the reality of life that money makes the world go round. In Ecclesiastes 10:19 it says that “money is the answer to everything”

Kaya maging marunong sa pananalapi. Be financial literate and iwasan ang mga taong ‘yousers’ dahil kahit makagawa ka ng mabuti, masama ka pa din in the end. It’s better to have few but well-chosen and genuine friends than to have so many fake ones.
