rules-for-doing-good-15hmpyr8-414080-420-516

I don’t know who wrote the rules above. There must be a good basis for it. I think it best to see what is written in the Bible about it. If it is good, do it. If it is right, and good, hurry and do it!2-timothy-3_16-17.jpg

  • DO ALL THE GOOD YOU CAN – Do anything that is good – as long as it is good. I guess it has to start with having the desire to do it, and learning how. Doing good is also doing what is right. However, when you know the right thing to do and you did not do it, you sin. James 4:7. New Living Translation
    Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

    • Isaiah 1:17 New International Version
      Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.

      New Living Translation
      Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows.

    • Titus 3:14 New Living Translation
      Our people must learn to do good by meeting the urgent needs of others; then they will not be unproductive.
    • Psalm 34:14 New Living Translation
      Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
    • 1 Peter 3:11 New Living Translation
      Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it.
    • 3 John 1:11 Berean Study Bible
      Beloved, do not imitate what is evil, but what is good. The one who does good is of God; the one who does evil has not seen God.
    • 1 Timothy 6:17-18 New Living Translation
      Teach those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which is so unreliable. Their trust should be in God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works and generous to those in need, always being ready to share with others.
    • Titus 3:8 New Living Translation
      This is a trustworthy saying, and I want you to insist on these teachings so that all who trust in God will devote themselves to doing good. These teachings are good and beneficial for everyone.
  • IN ALL THE WAYS YOU CAN – In every thinkable, known ways, according to your ability. Be HOSPITABLE. GIVE. SHARE. RESCUE. SAVE. Be PRODUCTIVE. HELP. DEFEND the cause. FIGHT for the right.
    • Hebrews 10:24 New Living Translation
      Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.
      give-save-spend
  • TO ALL THE PEOPLE YOU CAN – the NEEDY, those WHO ASK, to the POOR, those WHO ARE HUNGRY, those WHO WANT to BORROW & the HOMELESS.
    • Matthew 5:42 New Living Translation
      Give to those who ask, and don’t turn away from those who want to borrow.
    • Ephesians 4:28 New Living Translation
      If you are a thief, quit stealing. Instead, use your hands for good hard work, and then give generously to others in need.
    • Luke 3:11 New Living Translation
      John replied, “If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry.”
    • Isaiah 58:7 New Living Translation
      Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help.
    • Proverbs 24:11 New Living Translation
      Rescue those who are unjustly sentenced to die; save them as they stagger to their death.
    • Psalm 82:4 New Living Translation
      Rescue the poor and helpless; deliver them from the grasp of evil people.
    • Hebrews 13:2 New Living Translation
      Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!
    • Romans 12:13 New Living Translation
      When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.
    • 1 Peter 4:9 New Living Translation
      Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay.
  • IN EVERY PLACE YOU CAN – No matter where you are, where the people are and where the need is.manila-slums
  • AT ALL TIMES YOU CAN – Yes, in every opportunity, however small, as the opportunity presents itself.
  • AS LONG AS EVER YOU CAN – As long as your strength allows you. As long as the opportunity keep coming.

1 John 3:10 New Living Translation
So now we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers does not belong to God.

MY CHOICE

I would have ranted over a lot of things…but!

I choose to highlight the best things in this life.

This is my choice. No matter what happens. No matter how many undesirable things happen. No matter what comes.

Take for example our guide last August 27 in our Traverse Hike @ Mt. Maculot. He is Mang Jose. Yes, parang si Daimos din. Pwedeng arkilahin!

He is almost the same age as I am. He is amazed at how I was able to keep up with him. But this post is not about me. It’s about what’s best in that hike.

Mang Jose has been a trail guide for 4 years now. He is one of the veteran guide in Cuenca, Batangas. He lost his cellphone and so, sad to say, no contact number from him.

He holds a wooden trekking pole and is very patient about his job. He has provisions in a back pack and a radio on his side. He is also one of the few ready for snake bites along the trail – he has an antidote with him.

He knows the route well and is very much knowledgeable of the place.

I think he is the best guide of them all. :)Why? Simply because he is Mang Jose.

 

Upcoming Trips

I already have a confirmed trip to Mt. Batolusong. 🙂 This will be on July 24, 2016. Looking it up, I found out that it’s some place I could go on my own. Hahahahaha…

Actually, it’s some place I have been passing by all along whenever I train-to-run in Tanay, via Sampaloc Road. Toinks.

Anyways, the excitement is the same.

I will be going there and will be returning on my own! lol.

Another two (2), which is not confirmed yet but is already an agreed trip, is a Dingalan, Aurora Trip on the 7th of August…then, a 20-hour Hike-Trek-Climb in Bataan. Both are already in the plans, and communicated to the organizer but no final go yet.

🙂

Happy to go back to the mountains!
