Make that change!

“You better change or else!”; “They should change the way they do those things.”; “Why can’t they change for the better?”; “I like you, but I don’t like how you treat me.”; “She should do better than that!”; “Our government should change its ways.”

Well, its endless actually. People is so used to point out to other people when it comes to changing. From their point of view, they are better than others and those others should change. Very seldom will they admit that they themselves need some changing. No wonder the world stays where it is now, in fact, its getting worse.

Listen to Michael Jackson if you will:

I’m Starting With The Man In The Mirror
I’m Asking Him To Change His Ways
And No Message Could Have Been Any Clearer
If You Wanna Make The World A Better Place
Take A Look At Yourself, And Then Make A Change

Our Father also instructs us of these things, read on:

Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. – Romans 12:3

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. – Matthew 7:1-5

I guess these words say enough of what should be said.

Its up to us to read and act on it.

Oh, by the way, I also need a-changing.

Finally, finally

Finally, I bought my first laptop ever, a Samsung rc410.

Its not that flashy, but hey… i needed a machine that fits my budget and my needs… which are chatting, blogging and surfing and it fits quite snugly.

I’m happy.

I’ve tested it quite a bit, used it for Facebook chatting, Skype video calling, watching movies, surfing the net, watching on Youtube, even helped my friend locate and download drivers for his laptop that found itself in need of a Windows XP re-installation.

But I guess I’ll be paying Jumbo Electronics (Dubai Mall branch) a visit this week. I tried watching HD film (Ip Man) via VLC with the machine running on batteries, and in 2 occasions, it gave me a Blue Screen. I tried running the same HD movie on the same software but with the AC plugged in, voila! played smoothly. I’m still testing it though and once an anomaly is confirmed, be ready for an explanation Jumbo.

So far, everything is a-ok.

And right now, I’d like to thank Father God for this provision and may He use this machine for His glory alone and as a staunch ally of mine in the ministry He gave me.

Thank You Father!
