300

Oops! It was not 300 but 300-298= 2 of us that went home painting last weekend… Ho ho ho…

The two of us were painting Nic’s new home and it was a tiring, not too mentioned dirty as well… I got myself all splattered with paint, including my face.

We took a makan break in the midst of painting and my dear friend, Nic was so kind enough not to tell me about the abstracts of art on my face. It took me some time before I realised something was amissed as I noticed people staring at me. 

I some more thought people mistook me for some celebrity… Bloody hell… ha ha… And Nic was just laughing away… KNS!

Anyway here’s one for you brother! =P

But about the movie 300. I saw it last week…

A question to me: “What would you do if you were the Spartan king (Leonidas)? Surrender and save your life or fight on and die?”

My reply: “I will fight on and die. Cos that would be what I would be prepared to do since I decided to go to battle. If go, go all the way.”

“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Will he not first sit down and estimate the cost to see if he has enough money to complete it? For if he lays the foundation and is not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule him, saying, ‘This fellow began to build and was not able to finish.’

 “Or suppose a king is about to go to war against another king. Will he not first sit down and consider whether he is able with ten thousand men to oppose the one coming against him with twenty thousand? If he is not able, he will send a delegation while the other is still a long way off and will ask for terms of peace. In the same way, any of you who does not give up everything he has cannot be my disciple.”

Luke 14:28-33 (NIV)

  1. Since when Pirate Andrew also do painting, Must tell Captain Hook that his men do moonlight!
    Reflection in Luke 14:28-33
    A lot of people acquire a lot of knowledge (as well as God’s Word), but why they still cannot do anything for himself and for God. They do not have vision. Vision is like a piece of land, use your knowledge and God’s word to build a upon. Without it, You are just a brick seller (put it in a crude term is YOU SELL YOURSELF SHORT!)

    Beware on whether is God’s vision or some kind of wishes. Matthew 7:24- says,
    Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, yet it did not fall, because it has its foundation on the rock (Jesus). But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.
