8 Reminders for Leaders

Psalm 101 NLT
A psalm of David.

1 I will sing of your love and justice, Lord. I will praise you with songs.
  - Worship and serve the LORD

2 I will be careful to live a blameless life—when will you come to help me? I will lead a life of integrity in my own home.
   -Integrity everywhere!, be careful to live a life above reproach

NKJV- 2 I will behave wisely in a perfect way. Oh, when will You come to me? I will walk within my house with a perfect    heart.

   “Behave” in Hebrew is RAHAB- make sure, behave proudly, overcome, strengthen

3 I will refuse to look at anything vile and vulgar. I hate all who deal crookedly;I will have nothing to do with them.
   -protect your eyes and hate what is evil

4 I will reject perverse ideas and stay away from every evil.

5 I will not tolerate people who slander their neighbors. I will not endure conceit and pride.

NKJV- 5 Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, Him I will destroy; The one who has a haughty look and a proud heart, Him I will not endure.

“Slanders” A false tale or report maliciously uttered. and tending to injure the reputation of another by lessening him in the esteem of his fellow citizens, by exposing min to impeachment and punishment, or by impairing his means of lining; defamation. Slander, that worst of poisons, ever finds an easy entrance to ignoble minds.
   “Ignoble” Of low birth or family; not noble; not illustrious.

6 I will search for faithful people to be my companions. Only those who are above reproach will be allowed to serve me.
   Choose your friends wisely!

NIV- 6 My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he whose walk is blameless will minister to me.   
   “Faithful” Firmly adhering to duty; of true fidelity; loyal; true to allegiance; as a faithful subject.

7 I will not allow deceivers to serve in my house, and liars will not stay in my presence.

   “Decievers” Syn. -- Deceiver, Impostor. A deceiver operates by stealth and in private upon individuals; an impostor practices his arts on the community at large. The one succeeds by artful falsehoods, the other by bold assumption. The faithless friend and the fickle lover are deceivers; the false prophet and the pretended prince are impostors.

Law of Attraction

Law of Attraction-
There are many who are starting to get attracted to the Law of Attraction. With the top rating multi-million sales of the Secret and the many Self- help seminars like the Landmark Forum. I want to share my experience regarding this.

Here's a quote from...
Abraham: You did not come into this environment to create through action. Instead, your action is meant to be a way in which you enjoy what you have created through thought.
Esther Hicks

For as he thinks in his heart, so is he..proverbs 23:7

Ever since I remember I have always wanted a perfect life and I strive for perfection. I looked inside me and tried to change my heart from within.. I even attended self-help seminars and bought so many books. But my longing was deep.. so deep that people, knowledge and philosophies, etc cannot fill..

So I got outside help to fill the gap.. relationships, alcohol and even drugs to dull the deep need for significance and p…

Luis L. Pantoja Jr. THD

I went to a memorial service for Pasto Luis Pantoja a commemorative Prayer meeting hosted by GCF-Peel. It was a touching event for I only met Pastor Luis once here in Canada during a church picnic last month. Its a pity I did not get to talk to him.

In the prayer meeting I heard so many funny, meaningful stories about this great man. A man greatly loved and for he loved much.

Epitaph for his cremated remains: "A handful of ashes now vaulted in this corner, with nothing to boast but grace from his maker"

I happen to read his Limericks..

Limericks on my life
by Luis Pantoja on Friday August 27, 2010 at 9:33pm

Limericks are short verses generally but not always funny. Here are some about my career

Once on fire, in a suit and tie
By the hand of God and the will of man

Now he's fired, in sackcloth retired
By the hand of man and the will of God

The Lord has given, He has taken away
I tread the path, He leads the way

Flip the new page, blank with no stain
God in my old ag…
