This is the Answer for Everything

Is there an answer for everything? Yes there is, according to the bible. And it's money. Yup, you heard it right. Money is the answer for everything, says God in the bible.
A feast is made for laughter, wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything. [Ecclesiastes 10.19]
One day King Solomon was pondering about life and he got this idea when he was inspired by God. Then, feeling the urgency, he wrote it in his book, Ecclesiastes. And we know that all Scripture is inspired by God. God spoke through the prophets and patriarchs. And among things he told Solomon was how money is the answer for everything---everything on earth, that is.

God Talks about Money?

I was mentioning about it the other night to my cousin in an office lobby and he was surprised when I said the bible said it. 

"Huh?" he blurted out, asking me with a stare. "The bible? Where is that in the bible?" I told him where and he got out his smartphone and looked it over. And there it was. He couldn't believe it.

Often, we can't believe it when God talks about money, especially how important it is. We can't imagine God emphasizing money because we think it's improper to do so in the spiritual realms. We think it's greed so we often try to project an image that we don't care about money, or that we don't want it or we despise it, especially when we want to show off spirituality. 

Church trained us to see it that way, so we'd often beg for money (when we send out those solicitation letters to people when we need their money for our church projects) than do a networking business. It's really the height of hypocrisy. We think begging is right. We think hard work doing a legitimate business is wrong.

God Designed Money That Way

God designed life to be like that---that things in life are to be answered with money. And I mean "everything" in life---the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and even spiritual aspects of life.

You need money if you want to be healthy. Wellness is money and money brings wellness. Organic food costs a lot, for instance. And don't you feel suddenly strong when you get a chance to get a really big sum of money in your hands? Yeah, money sometimes gives healing!

You need money to socialize and connect with people online or offline. You need to buy a good computer, internet connection, camera, and headphone and mic when on social media, for instance. And you need money to meet people in person.

You need money to divert your attention from bad emotions, like do some shopping or see a movie or eat ice cream, for example. You need money to buy books and enroll in a good school. And you need money to wear something to church and buy a bible and give your tithes and offering. Imagine if the church has no money. Even Jesus received support from women in his day [Luke 8.3]. 

Thus, you can't say you don't need or want money even if you are the most spiritual guy on earth. See? Abraham is our father in faith and yet God gave him a lot of money. Faith and lots of money can go together in the spirit. In fact, you need money to fulfill God's work. Having lots of money is not greed. It is spiritual. 

How Money is the Answer

Now, the next question is, how can money become the answer for everything? If you have money to pay the rent but not the electric and water bill, how can it be the answer for "everything"? It's supposed to solve everything, right?

Well, that's why Ecclesiastes also talks about investment. 
Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you know not what disaster may happen on earth.[Ecclesiastes 11.2]
In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand, for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good. [11.6]
Jesus has lots of parables about investment in the Gospel. And he defined what investment really is in this parable.
Put this money to work. [Luke 19.11]
Investment is really putting or investing your money to work for you.  Employment and business make you work for money. You often see how business owners cannot leave their businesses to enjoy some good time somewhere because they are tied to them. And employees do not have the money and time freedom to just go anywhere they want. But investors are free because their money works for them.

Look how money grows with investment:
The servant who received the five bags of silver began to invest the money and earned five more. The servant with two bags of silver also went to work and earned two more. [Matthew 25.14-30 NLT]
Investment involves no hard work but it can double your money. And then it starts becoming the answer for everything because it pays for all your bills. Your money takes care of all your bills, your food, the tuition fees of your kids, your car and house payments, your health needs, your leisure and travel, etc.

Most of all, money is designed to take care of all your ministry needs.

But First, You Need Investment Money

But it all starts with saving money. Employees and business people should aim to save for investment money. Investment money is apart from the money you use for your daily expenses. I suggest you set apart money for your tithes and offering and then save some money for your investment.

Employees should then start a low-capital business with big income potential. So should business people. And I strongly suggest you look for a good, legitimate and quality network marketing business. It's the only business today where your small capital can earn big money if you work hard at it. Check out the VIP Marketing business I am presently engaged in. You can join me do it and let's start prospering together. Click this link!

Then, as your money grows from this business, start investing. Soon, your money will start working for you and you have more time doing what you really love doing---like spending more time with God and your family.

Money is Reality

In every aspect of life, there are expenses. And I mean every aspect. And unless you realize that money is the answer for all of them, you will grope in the dark and always wonder why God doesn't seem to answer your prayers. But he has already, in Ecclesiastes. And it is his will that you make your money work for you. Money is a good servant. It is its call from God.

But sad that lots of people choose to serve money instead. Ever seen someone who doesn't want to see a doctor for a checkup because he fears the cost after---and he doesn't want his money in the bank withdrawn or be spent in any way. That's serving money.

Or, the guy walking in the street who has money but doesn't want to buy food even if he's hungry? He'd wait till he gets home and eat the leftovers in the fridge.

Often, people would rather not give money to poor people to save the money for themselves. Or, they'd just pity starving people in the streets but give nothing. To appease their guilt, they'd just "pray" for them. Prayer is a way of getting answers from God, but prayers are not the answer for everything. Instead, you should pray to God for money so you'd have the answer for everything. Get it? That is how God intended things to be on earth.

What Money is For, Really?

Now, if you have invested and gained money from it, what do you do with it? Ordinary people without heaven's insight would keep it for themselves. Keep it in banks and make it accumulate there. But Jesus said, do not store up treasures on earth.

So, what do we do with money? Simple---make it the answer for everything. A lot of people pray to God for things they need. Now, God has given you the answer---your money. It's time for you to share. Make your money the answer for everything people ask God for. That money you gained from investment is intended to be shared with others. That's what Jesus said in his Word.
Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. [Luke 12.33]
Money is important, but your heart for what money is for is more important. God uses money to test your heart, because people's true character manifests the moment they own lots of money. The same thing with people around you---their true characters appear the moment they see how you have lots of money.

Remember, too, that money is a root of all kinds of evil.

So, you see, this is why money is the answer for everything.

HOW HEALTHY IS BANANA CUE? For Banana Lovers Like Me

If you're a banana lover like me, you probably love eating banana cue and turon as well. Banana cue is dip frying "saba" or cardava banana rolled in brown sugar. Turon, on the other hand, is "saba" or cardava banana wrapped in egg-roll wrapper, the type used for spring rolls, sprinkled with brown sugar. Sometimes, they even put slices of langka or jackfruit in it. SM Save More outlets sellthem for only P15 per big piece.

Anyway, if you eat these cooked bananas, what health benefit do you get? Do you get all the health benefits bananas give?

Cooked bananas give you dietary fibers, nothing more, nothing less. Well, you also get some carbohydrates from the brown sugar and fat from the cooking oil. By the way, included here is sweetened "saba" which is banana boiled in water with brown sugar and sometimes added with vanilla extract. At least with this, you eliminate cooking oil.

Bananas are supposed to be super healthy with lots of vitamins and minerals …

HEALTH BENEFITS OF PATOLA: Don't Judge a Veggie by It's Rough Look

"Pulis patola" is a term popularized in Filipino movies on supposedly lousy cops. It denotes an inept policeman trained in a far-flung province where cops know nothing except probably to eat and sleep. But in the Filipino movies, the rustic "patola" cop turns out to be a good and skillful cop who manages to ruin a powerful syndicate singlehandedly.

Thus, "patola" or sponge gourd is a common rough-looking vegetable almost nobody pays attention to (some even smirks at the sigh to fit) and considered low class vegetable. Why "sponge" gourd? The core of the fruit looks like crude sponge, but it sure doesn't taste like one. Patola is  often mixed in soups, especially plain and ordinary miswa soup to add some sweet flavor to it. It's also cheap--just perfect for anyone aiming for health and fitness with middle income budget.

Here are some of its health benefits:
It's low in calories. If you're trying to lose weight, eat more of this to …

Apple Stem Cell Health Benefits and Why You Need Them

We all know how advanced aging damages skin quality. But plant stem cells, especially from apples, were found to powerfully delay aging and its toll on the skin. This was discovered in many plant stem cell researches.  Stem cells are plant cells extracted from plant stems. As simple as that. So they're all-natural. And they divide and renew themselves continually as long as they're alive. Imagine if your cells are like that. Swiss Malus Domestica Apple plant stem cell (malus domestica) grown and enhanced in Switzerland since the 18th century is most apt for stimulating aging human skin stem cell, lessening unsightly skin wrinkles. It prolongs or extends the life of skin cells so you get a more youthful and radiant look.  When you age your skin cells' ability to divide slows down, unable to create enough new skin cells. So you get lots more of old or dying cells than new cells. These skin cells in your body must be replaced---and here is where the Swiss apple stem cells ent…
