From outside I am not very religious nor spiritual (as an FYP student said to me recenty, you can see from my behavior). I am still walking and confusing in the thin line between what Bible says to me and what people of higher “authority” around here interprets it and teach me about.
Anyway I kind of do not agree that it is “to my advantage”. We do everything, as a friend of mine always put it, for God, with God and because of God. He enables you to do something because He is able to do everything, you will not get any advantage or profit out of it. You do your work for God, for His plentiful blessings and the grace of salvation that He has graciously given, so if there is someone that will be benefited, it is God, and perhaps others that you provide a service for, I do not know.
And anyway I go by this saying,
When life throws a lemon at you,
throw the lemon back at life.
And I’d always been satisfied with a feeling of “I’ve told you so” or the after-“watch me” success ;p I hope I do not sound bitter though. Haha!
