Lunch with the big shots Thursday, Mar 29 2007 

So just the other day I got summoned to sit down lunch with the big wigs at Buona Vista, together with other teachers supposedly “of my sort”.

After barely 10 minutes, it became starkly apparent to me that the description “of my sort” was highly questionable. After 20 minutes, it became obvious that it is I who am not “of their sort”.

Well, enough of this this-ing and that-ing, I would have thought that the basic question of what do I want to do with this life of mine would go through the heads of every teacher who is passionate about what they do, through the heads of every discerning human being that wonders why is it God put them on earth in the first place. What am I chasing?

Am I truly interested in all that? HOD VP P DD D, sure sounds attractive and the money is pretty good. Is it for me though? Its tempting to be the anti-establishment orator who just says well all that is paper-chasing, climbing corporate ladder, turns me off kind of stuff, without further thought.

The truth is, I really don’t know. To be a leader is a challenge. I’ve always loved such challenges. The accompanying money is just a consequence that would allow me to provide comfortably for my loved ones. But yet I am not sure if its for me, and neither am I sure its what my purpose in life is.

Read a post on WL’s blog that stirred me to think it through a lot more, that our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, but our deepest fear is we are powerful beyond measure and it scares us. Is that me?

I admire those who know what they want in life.  I do not admire those who have not put in the thought to discern, but I do envy their ability to not think about it.  But I am not built that way.

Speak Lord, your servant is listening.

Awake from your stupor Wednesday, Mar 28 2007 

Know you not that your bodies are the members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid!

1 Cor 6:15

If you love yourself not, you are committing a sin for your body belongs not to you, but is a temple of the living God.  It is time to awake from your stupor.

Do Not Expect Thanks for the Good that you do. Wednesday, Mar 28 2007 

Why do we expect thanks and gratitude for the good that we do?

What did Jesus get in return?  Crucifixion.  Nothing much else until the time he was nailed to the cross.
