Not All "Instant" is Good

In this new era, most of the stuffs are all instant: Ranging from instant coffee, instant noodles, instant foods, or whatsoever. Even instant documents are very rampant today (You know what that means, the illegal ones). When it’s all about instant foods, its alright (Except to instant documents. Of course, we must arrange our documents in LEGAL way). BUT (With all-caps and in bold letters), when it comes to – *Kaching!* money, its not funny anymore.

As we’re being heard in the news, all the prices were rising. From gas, fares, foods, and even tuition fees. And the effect is inevitable. As fees rise, some of the students we’re forced to stop in their studies (Yours truly was also stopped twice). And some of the students were seeking some jobs to continue their studies as working students. But for some, they rely on some “get-rich-quick” schemes (Colloquially known as NETWORKING).

How networking goes?

Simple, you just invest some cash (It depends on those networking companies how much to invest), by your “investments” you bought some of their products (Most of the products they sell are beauty and wellness products), invite some people to join also, and voila! Instant cash. And yours truly almost fell on that scheme.

And how I resist that schemes? Simple. God reminded me through these verse:

An inheritance quickly gained at the beginning will not be blessed at the end.

– Proverbs 20:21

A reminder for all of you, as you read this, God wants us to be bless. How?

But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

– Matthew 6:33

Even you badly need money, just like me, you must seek first God. How? A relationship with him. God wants us to be blessed. And hey! God gave the His Son’s life to save us. So, He can give you what you need.

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”

– Matthew 7:7-8

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

– Matthew 6:34

About Kevin Reyes

Once a piece of thrash that was always being ridiculed, getting fooled, always getting bullied. But when God found me on that condition, he gave me a new life, a new direction, a new purpose. And I'd like to share my walk and my testimonies to all of you so that you might experience also God's love.
