Love comes back is a song from EFY (Especially for Youth), that performed by Stephanie Mabey. It is all about the simple things we are doing and bounces back as a blessing to us. Example is rendering a service as to show our love for those who needs us. The root is always the love that always comes back to us.

Caught in the Middle

What will you do if someone who is superior from you will ask something for you to do but you know that others will hate you? Will you still obey your superior and be hated by others? Or please others sacrificing yourself and disobey your superior? What will you do if you are being caught in the middle?

For all the things in this world, being a natural man, we are subject into confusion and in all oppositions. We may encounter things that we might think it is right but it is wrong for others or contrast to it. We may find ourselves again being caught in the middle and will tell ourselves to spot the difference and play the game of jeopardy. It will be difficult for us to decide and to do what's the best for everyone.

Building Relationship of Trust

Building relationship of trust is one of the skills in communicating. Having this kind of skill is an advantage to the world of communication. It will increase your stewardship and ability in interacting with people.

The thing you need to consider in building it is truly different than merely building trust only. Building a relationship means you are planting a quality trust with your own effort, while building trust means that you are only creating trust with or without your effort and not planting.

This Thing is Mine

We all have valuable things that we don't want to lose. Such things like we don't want to let other people to borrow it from us. We are so stubborn keeping it only to ourselves just to make sure it is in good hands. And there are times that we keep it in a secure place not accessible to anyone. Thus, some people will judge us from being selfish or greedy for we don't want them to borrow or ask it from us. We might say, "This thing is mine and I own it". We know, that it is for the sake of safe keeping and valuing things we owned. We feel that what we are doing is the right thing to do and we have the right to decline because we own it.

No Effort is Wasted

I remember a time at school that our programming instructor was asking who will lead the prayer. No one seems had a courage to volunteer among my classmates. Then our instructor picked someone who was not among our classmate but from another section. The student seems shy but he still obeyed. After he lead the prayer, all of us smiled and felt enjoyed to what he did. Even though he is not our classmate, still he brought a smile to us. That experience made me realize how important sharing is.

Swearing to Compromise

There are times that we are being obliged to finish a specific task from other people. Our minds is being pushed in a work pressure to achieve the deadline. Of course, we can't afford ending up as a carcass when we fail to accomplish a task after the deadline. We see, that we will do everything to win their trust. Because of it, we opted to tell them promising words just to cure their anxiety towards us. We don't want them to be compromised so we end up saying, "I will do it, I PROMISE!".

Counting Coins

I tried an experiment to myself one time putting coins on my left palm facing up. While I'm looking on the objects, I asked myself, "What do I truly see?". Then I mumbled, "Is it the coins? Or my hand? Or both?". At first, I only noticed the coins. Then, I realized the importance of my hand.

In that experiment, the value of the coins represents of the problems while the importance of the hand represents of the blessings. Looking in different views in life may help us recognize and notice various things that we need to see through.

Good Results? Think First!

What we are doing today is what we are building for the future. Just like having a regular daily exercise that we expect and want to live longer and to have a physically fit body. We do want having a good result! But the question is, how can we achieve good results? If this principle is applied on what we are doing everyday, what kind of result will it be?

Shaping up ourselves today plays a vital role for our future. What we are expecting for our tomorrow depends on what we choose and act today. You have the freedom on what you will be doing but you cannot choose what will be the outcome.
