Kukulu To Brag Pt. 2

Air Jordans ua iconic. Aole au i lei lakou nui e ulu ana mai nae, no ka mea, o koʻu mau mākua hōʻole e kūʻai mai iaʻu ridiculously pipiʻi kamaa. Au i makemake ia, aka, I ike au, e aole loa e kuʻu lima ma luna o ka paʻa. Pela au i puʻe wale aku ai Makuakane - ma ka hookohukohu iho la lakou i nei. Ua loihi ka mau o ka makahiki e ho'āʻo ana e hoomaopopo iaʻu iho i Reebok keʻa trainers, he kaila. Aka, e like me kaʻu i loaʻa mua, I ike Jordans ua paakiki e ignore. A pau o koʻu mau hoaloha i kekahi hui a elua, a me kekahi o koʻu mau hoaaloha, ua downright i pulakaumaka no me lakou.

I ka wa i hou kaila i hele mai, ia, aole wale hooki ma ka kūloko wawae ia nā waihona ukana i ka wa ia i kekahi me ka manawa; ia i kūkulu ai i kona ola puni noho ana hou hui. He hana paa ia ia i ike i ka Ioredane kalaʻana aʻe, ia e kuai i ka ia kāmaʻa maʻokoʻa waihoʻoluʻu, a oia e pinepine kali Poaono mornings hoomoana aku la ma ke alo o ka hale kūʻai kāmaʻa. It puhi i koʻu manao. A eia ka mea hope au i ke noi aku nei au iaʻu iho, “He aha ka mea i kūikawā e pili ana i keia mau kamaa?! Maopopo Ke nalowale aku i kekahi mea.”

Koʻu hoa ka pulakaumaka nui me Jordans i ka olelo. Ina oiaio paha, aole, ka mea, ua i mai la ka leo nui a me ka maopopo loa i keia mau kamaa ua like kona waiwai pūʻali i kou ola no. Heaha ke ano o ka olelo, aole ia i kou ola i?

He aha kāu e la?

i koʻu hope mo'omana'o Pūnaewele, I hoʻopaʻapaʻa ia makou e ho ohana ko makou mau olelo, e kaena aku i ke Akua ma o makou. A au aku la a hiki hou aku, i ka'īʻana o ke Akua ia kakou, no ka mea he kumu. Aka, aole au i manao ko makouʻano wahawai e kaupalena 'ia ko kakou mau olelo. Aole wale e makou brag i ka Haku me ko kakou lehelehe, makou e no hoi brag ia ia me ko kakou mau ola.

A pau a oukou e hanaʻo ia i ka olelo e pili ana i ke Akua. Kelaʻaiʻoukou eʻai, kela hōʻikeʻoukou lawe, every hour you work says something about your Creator. So even if you choose to keep your mouth closed about Him, kou Aloha Hawaii e noho He nui nō kaʻu e olelo aku. Ka ninau no: Heaha hoi ko oukou i ka i ana?

Maikai Hana Hou no ka mea, ke Akua e pono ai

Ma kona sermon kaulana loa, Mai la o Iesu mai nei i keia: "E ko oukou malamalama imua o na mea e ae alohi mai, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

Mai la o Iesu hai i kona listeners e noho lilelile ola, ua piha i ka maikai na hana i mua o kekahi poe. Aka, o oukou nana ole ia, aole ia e olelo ole, "A kanaka, e ike i ka mea kupaianaha Kristiano poe." O ka pahuhopu ka mea, aole kakou nani, aka, i kekahi i "e hoonani i ka [makou] Makua e noho ana iloko o ka lani. "Kakou hana maikai mau kuhikuhi i ko kakou Akua maikai.

Manao e pili ana ia. Heaha la hoi e olelo aku i ke Akua, ina kākou p'poe kanaka e hana kekahi e like me ka'ōpala? He aha ka mea e kamaʻilio i ka nana aku? Aole wale, aole mea e olelo aku i ke Akua, ka hanaia a he lapuwale, aka, he mea no hoi hōʻike ana ia kakou makou i ka piko o ka universe. Aole o keia mau mea, he oiaio, a makou huli basically e waiho ana ke Akua i kekahi poe.

Aka, i ka mea a inā ma kahi, makou ua strikingly selfless, a waiho i ko kakou ola ilalo no ko kakou hoalauna? He aha ka mea, ina kakou i generously e kōkua halawai i na pono o kekahi poe? Heaha ke ano o ka olelo, aole ia e hana a puni i ke Akua? He hōʻike ana kākou i ko kākou i ka piko o ka Universe, a ua hiki mai ka mea nui e ola ko kakou ola no. He mea hōʻike ke Akua ka mea i hanaia no ia e aloha, a ia makou makemake e aloha ia hai e like me makou i alohaʻia e ia.

Kela olelo hooholo oukou hana, he manawa e lilo i aniani, lewa i ka lokomaikai o ko oukou hana. Kela lua no he manawa e lilo i kanaka hoʻoponopono, showcasing snapshots of His glory. And when those around us catch glimpses of that goodness, makou loaa, e hai aku ia lakou i ko makou malamalama he wale, he pō manaʻo o kona.

I ka oiaio, ua, wahawai me ko makou mau ola, a me ko makou mau lehelehe hele lima i loko o ka lima. Ina kakou wale brag me ko kakou mau ola, kanaka ke lawe wale kiʻi kanaka kākou. Lakou e i ike i ka mea nana e kaupalena nei makou e noho i na ola maikai. A ina e ko kakou olelo aku nei au i ke Akua, he mea kupaianaha, aka, ko makou mau ola e olelo ole ia, ko kakou kuleana lilo aku credibility. Kakou e hana na.

Make It Mea

Anei kou ola e olelo aku nei i na mea nui e pili ana i ke Akua? Ko oukou akamai Ka Pale Pepeli a me Karistiano honu nei, aole lawa. He aha kāu checkbook olelo? He aha e hana i kou hana kūleʻa me kekahi olelo? He aha hana i kou hana ethic olelo? I ike au i ka mea e mihi i kela la i ka nele i ka brag ia ia e like me kaʻu e. Ke Akua, he pookela ia mamua o na mea a pau, i ka wa aʻu e noho ana ma ke alanui i hana ia nānā liʻiliʻi Ke noho i ka wahahee.

He mea i loko o ka Universe oi aku waiwai mamua oʻaʻahuʻoluʻolu keka, ai 'ole ka' oihana paipai ', ai 'ole he mau o Jordans? O ke ana, he. E hōʻoia i kou ola mea i maopopo. A kohu mea, e like me ka hooweliweli ae i ko hana, aka, mai hopohopo -ʻoe i kūkulu ai no ka mea,.

    Great perspective for us 80s and 90s kids who remember the Jordan era vividly. Akā naʻe, I still see some of that kid in me and many times don’t realize it until after I’ve reprioritized just enough of my life to make a mess of things. Praise the lord for his grace and forgiveness! Glad I ran across your blog, keep writing for Him.

  4. HannahWellpane

    This is so touching. It really makes you wonder how much is God’s light really shinning through your life.
    Time for me to make a rain check and a good evaluation.

    Thanks is what I really struggle with, using my words to spread God’s glory. I like to let my actions do the talking, but that’s not enough and I’m becoming much more aware of that. Thanks for this and encouraging me to really go out there and spread His Word. I’m actually going out on my campus later to talk to people about Jesus. Gotta brag on Him!

  6. TreverlyHillzpane

    This is indeed a very tough subject. But what about Christianity is easy, akau? The difficulty for me arises in living my life so that people see that it is the light of God shining and not just the light of another nice guy. Question for the community: What are a few nonverbals that we can incorporate so that people can differentiate our lives from the lives of other “ʻoluʻolu & serving” kanaka?

    I am simply floored by GOD’s overwhelming conformation by way of your blog. In two separate occasions, we basically wrote about the same things. I’d love to share my writings with you. I even did the Jordan comparison and all!!!! As well as Matthew 5:16. Please let me know where I can share my own writings of self conviction. I indeed have a powerful responsibility of my pen and it is more evident after reading your blog!!! Mahalo no ka mea, ke kaʻana like!!!

  9. Hollypane

    Mahalo no ka mea, o keia! Your insights are encouraging and convicting. I def don’t give God the credit with my mouth as I am called to do. Good to see the Word in that we are called to boast…a me ka mea ka i ka maikai mea!

  12. YouthExplosionForChristpane

    This site is amazing ,very encouraging. Will be sharing your sermons with our youth. Your music has already inspired them, to have another way to give them God’s word that they will be receptive to is always such a blessing. Thank you for answering the call. Na ke akua e hoʻopōmaikaʻi aku.

    No longer will I let human nature dictate my behavior, but I will pray that my Maker, allows me to become more like my Savior
