Kindness begets kindness!
Ang pagbibigay daw ng kabutihan, parang negosyo lang yan! Di mo alam kung may babalik na tubo!
Pero kapag “kabutihan ang puhunan natin sa negosyo”, there might be no assurance na hindi tayo malulugi– but we could be SO SURE that it will eventually make us GROW.
Why? … kasi ‘yong pinili nating maging puhunan gives us that sensation na hinding-hindi natin ikakalugi dahil it makes us feel great kapag nai-extend natin ito sa iba.
This is one secret pala which made Jesus a great Entrepreneur! At first He was just like a salesman whom nobody believed; but because He INVESTESTED ON PERSONAL THOUGHTFULNESS, soon He became that earnestly-sought sales-person who satisfies people’s needs just by His mere presence — without having to do much of “sales-talk” because His actions already demonstrated HOPE TO MANY!
At times we may feel insulted to give out kindness to some who would tend to doubt our intensions. Sometimes we may also feel “small” when people would carelessly demean the simple goodness that we extend — kaya in effect, we feel hesitant to pursue even that simple offer of friendship. But because we’re already aware that we should “run our business” in whatever type, persist still! — kasi this is Jesus’ sales-talk to us in today’s gospel:
“Do not be afraid; just have faith.”
‘yong tubo, maaaring ‘di natin makita kaagad by now; pero sige lang, let’s just “keep on doing the right thing” kasi soon, we will also reap our “return of investment” – that is: when people eventually start “talking good about us!” because we modelled Jesus Entrepreneur’s example! #sunset
