Hanga ki te whakamanamana Pt. 2

He rongonui Air Jordans. kihai ahau i kakahu nui tipu ratou ake ahakoa, no te mea kihai toku metua ki te hoko i ahau ridiculously hu utu. kihai i rite ahau i te reira, engari i mohio ahau e kore ahau e whiwhi oku ringa i runga i te rua. Heoi ka takoha ahau ki te akakoromaki - mā te whakataruna kihai ratou i te tīariari. i o nga tau i te tokorua roa e ngana ana te reira ki te riria ahau e nga huatau Reebok kaiwhakangungu ripeka. Ko rite ahau ka pakeke, ite ahau i pakeke ki te tau'a ore Jordans. i katoa o oku hoa i te rua e rua ranei, a tetahi o oku hoa i downright pōlepole ki a ratou.

A, no te haere mai i te kāhua hou i roto i, kihai i pai ia tika mutu i te tīni Waewae rohe ka i ia etahi wa free; hanga e ia tona ora a tawhio noa whiwhi e rua hou. i hanga e ia tino mohio ia ki nga rā tuku Horano katoa, e hoko ia te taua hu i roto i te tae rerekē, a maha e whakapau ia ata Rāhoroi noho i roto i roto i te mua o toa hu. whakatangihia te reira i toku ngakau. Na rawa i ahau ki te ui ahau, “He aha te mea na motuhake e pā ana ki enei hu?! Mārama ahau ngaro ahau i roto i runga i te tahi mea.”

pokenga o toku hoa ki Jordans hanga he tauākī. Ahakoa pono e kore ranei, I mea ia te karanga, me te mārama i utu Pätuhia koutou ora mo enei hu. He aha te momo o te tauākī e meinga to koutou ora?

He aha E mea koe?

i roto i toku pou whakamutunga, tohe ahau kia whakamahi tatou i to tatou kupu ki te whakamanamana i roto i te Atua hei utu mo o tatou. Na ka haere ahau ara atu, mea tatou e hanga te Atua mo taua take rawa. Otiia e kore ahau e whakaaro kia iti to tatou whakamanamana ki to tatou kupu. E kore noa e whakamanamana tatou i runga i te Ariki, ki to tatou ngutu, kia whakamanamana ano tatou ki runga ki a ia ki to tatou oraraa.

Nga mea katoa te mahi koe hanga he tauākī e pā ana ki te Atua. Nga kai e kai koutou, whakamātautau katoa tangohia koutou, every hour you work says something about your Creator. So even if you choose to keep your mouth closed about Him, ka tonu i tō āhua nui ki te mea. Ko te pātai he: ta koutou e mea?

Mahi pai hoki te Atua pai

I roto i tona a'oraa tino rongonui, ta Ihu tenei: "Kia tiaho to koutou marama ki te aroaro o ētahi atu, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

parau a Ihu e faaroo ki ora i te oraraa kanapa, ki tonu i te mahi pai i te aroaro o ētahi atu. Ko koutou kite kore ia e mea, "Kia ka kite iwi pehea mīharo he Karaitiana." E kore te mea te whāinga te kororia to tatou, engari e etahi e "hoatu kororia ki [to tatou] Matua i te rangi. "Tohu tonu tatou mahi pai ki to tatou Atua pai.

A feruri i te reira. Eaha te mea te reira e pā ana ki te Atua, ki te kei iwi siokita e hamani etahi ano he paru tatou? Eaha ta e te kōrero ki pakia? E kore noa e mea i te reira e ko te horihori hanganga o te Atua, engari te reira paraparau ano e koe te pokapū o te ao tatou. He pono e kore o aua mea, a e waiwai matou e takoto e pā ana ki te Atua ki era atu.

Ko te aha, ki te utu mo, matou strikingly ta'esiokita ka whakatakotoria to tatou oraraa iho mo o tatou hoa? He aha te mea ka hoatu e matou atawhai ki te tauturu i te whakatau i te mau hinaaro o vetahi ê? He aha te momo o te tauākī e hanga e pā ana ki te Atua? kōrero te reira e kore tatou kei te pokapū o te Universe me e reira te tahi mea rahi ki te ora i to tatou oraraa no te. E whakaatu ana te reira i hanganga o te Atua ko te ki kia atawhai, me e hinaaro tatou ki te aroha ia vetahi ê rite tatou kua aroha e ia.

Nga whakatau hanga koutou he ha faingamālie ke te waiho i te whakaata, whakaata i te pai o tou Kaihanga. Ia tuarua ko te whai wāhi ki te waiho i te aroturuki, showcasing snapshots of His glory. And when those around us catch glimpses of that goodness, whiwhi tatou ki te korero ki a ratou e to tatou marama ko anake he whakaata atarua o tona.

Ko te pono ko te, haere whakapehapeha ki to tatou oraraa, me to tatou ngutu ringa i roto i te ringa. Ki te tatou anake whakamanamana ki to tatou oraraa, kia amo iwi kei iwi pai noa tatou. e kore ratou e mohio ko wai akiakina ana tatou ki te ora i taua oraraa pai. A ki te mea tatou kupu he mīharo te Atua, engari to tatou oraraa e mea te kore, ngaro tatou kerēme whanaungatanga. Me mahi tatou e rua.

Hanga te reira i Ūkui

E mea to outou oraraa nui nga mea e pā ana ki te Atua? Koutou whakapiri āraituki tupato, me te moko Karaitiana e kore e nui. Eaha ta te mea koutou checkbook? He aha te mahi o koutou taunekeneke ki te mea etahi? Eaha ta to koutou fakaengāue mea? e mohio ana ahau i ahau ki te ripeneta ia o te oreraa ki te whakamanamana i runga i a ia rite kia ahau. He nui ki runga ake katoa Atua, na ka ora ahau i roto i te ara e hanga titiro ia iti ahau ora ahau i te teka.

He reira tetahi mea i roto i te Universe atu faufaa atu i sex tüao, he whakatairanga mahi ranei, ranei he rua o Jordans? O te akoranga i reira he. Me hanga koutou ora e mārama. Kia mea he rite te ala, engari kaua e māharahara - i hanga e koe mo reira.

    Great perspective for us 80s and 90s kids who remember the Jordan era vividly. Kia aroha mai, 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.

  3. HannahWellWhakautu

    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.
    Thank you Trip Lee <3

  4. MichaelWhakautu

    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!

    This is indeed a very tough subject. But what about Christianity is easy, matau? 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 othernice & serving” iwi?

    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!!! Ngā mihi mō te tiri!!!

    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. Whakapaingia te Atua.
