I’m sure many Filipinos are having a second thought today whether they made the right choice voting for Duterte. I can only sympathize with them. But on the other hand, I realized every choice we made whether good or bad always brings with it a blessing God may use to show His love for us.
Before the extrajudicial killings, too few people take heart with the disease of addiction in our country. They are either scared, mad or lost in addressing this plague destroying individual and families. Some just don’t care.
But because of what is happening, several organizations both government and private and even the church is finding better ways of dealing with the issue. It may be far before we will be able to effectively deal with this menace in our society but at least we are making a step going there.
Now that the wrong choices were made the next thing to do is to focus on the present and be proactive in the future. How many had been deceived by the propaganda delivered via social media appealing directly to our feelings without really thinking if he is the best choice or not?16 million? Perhaps. Think, think, think.
Until now, many people are still lured by the social media and all forms of media to act based on their emotions. Either they were angry, mad, and sad or scared. I don’t know how many are glad. The same propaganda used during the election is still appealing to our core feelings today so that we will never be able to think clearly again.
Clouded with our emotions we became blind with what we should focus on. We never really took the time to quiet down, be still, listen and learn. We keep repeating the wrong choices when we don’t think why we made them in the first place. As stupid as it may sound but it is. This is the reason why many of us never learned the lessons of the past.
The good news is that this is not the time to lose courage. Several passages in the bible talk about destructions, ruins, killings, plagues, terrible earthquakes, days of darkness, war and everything that we have today. Even God’s righteous people were troubled and afraid but it was repeatedly shown as well how they had always been taken cared of.
And God can make uses of pagan leaders to accomplish His will. Believers should never lose heart with the way our President express his views and his beliefs or disbeliefs. There is a loving God who sees it all and who can make used of everything for the good of the people whom He loves.
