I wanted to cry so badly for not buying more souvenirs and things for my friends and office mates. It didn’t feel enough. I so wanted to throw a tantrum for not getting that Sony Walkman Waterproof which was way cheaper in Bahrain than here in the Philippines. I don’t know, I guess I’m just too sleep deprived and homesick that the brat in me wants to get her way.
Then I came back to my senses and told myself, “It’s the thought that counts and that I don’t really need the Sony Walkman anyway.”
As soon as my eyes went back to reading the work assigned to me I saw this and now I feel better:
Paul’s description of the last days in 2 Timothy 3:1-9 reveals that the flesh will
dominate many believers’ lives. They will be self-centered, proud, and lovers of
pleasure instead of lovers of God. The way to avoid falling into this trap is to follow
the Holy Spirit’s leading. This means learning to say no to the world’s ways
and not following your flesh—what you want, what you think, and how you feel.
