bible” Go therefore and make disciples of people of all the nations. ” – Matt. 28:19

Using our time, energy and talents, not for self-advancement, but in the Kingdom-preaching and disciple-making work can be likened to making an investment.  Those who have done so have reaped rich dividends spiritually.  For example,   I  had a well-paying job as a contractor.  However, my work occupied practically all my time and left me feeling spiritually impoverished.  Finally, instead of trying to get ahead in my job,  quit and took up making “bagoong” ( salted fish )  and selling it on  store so that I would have more time to care for my spiritual needs and responsibilities.  Former workmates made fun of me, but how did things turn out?  Actually,  I (became ) better off financially.  ” It has made me the stress and worry that I had with my former job.  And most important, I now feel closer to God.
