Graduation party & New Born
Graduation party & New Born
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
What do you want to say to the graduates? What do you want to say to the parents who just have new born? What do you say to the people who live in a community?
Where is Jesus here? Do I see my calling? What is my calling — making money, making differences in people’s life, words, action and life....
How am I going to make a different here?

First thing — What is my calling?
Jesus reaffirmed the disciples that they did not choose him. He chose them and appointed them to go and bear fruit and fruit that will last.
You did not call or choose to be born in this world or choose to be born into your parents. You did not choose to be born that way. God put you there for a reason and you have to accept the life you have.
First, you are not choosing your parents. You were given to them by grace. It was a grace that you have them.
Secondly - You are not choosing to have faith in Christ. He was the one who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light and be saved.
Now - You all have achieved something very important in your life. You earned your education and you earned your right to be parenting now. You learn the beauty and the sacrifices for being a good students and a parents.
What are you going to do with your certificates and your new born?
When you earned your certification - Use it to make a different in your life and the life of your community. When you earned your check, use it to glorify God and the people surreounded you. Use your gift to make a differenct in your chruch and in your family, clan, Hmong community and your city.
Many things will just be a matter of gaining experiences and make a living. Enjoy life - outdoor or in door activities.
All these are things that you can enjoy and help make it better for others.
Parenting - the joy of waiting and not sleeping at nigh. The beauty of having children and the joy and the pride of bragging about your kids. the joy of talking about making a difference en your life. Eating, enjoying, and praying.
Make time to worship, pray, eat, enjoy life together is priceless. Make and intentionally make memories so that when you are old, you have made a different in the lives of your children and your family.
Christ had a calling. His life was to make a great different in the live of the people. He changed the world and the world go and change others. Christ’s death was to paid for sin so that you do not owe anything to the devil. You are changed because of the Holy Spirit that is in your.
