Then, I Will follow You
by Marco Rubio – abigchild@yahoo.com.mx 
(Translated from the Spanish by Geraldine Wright)
 
 
On life’s journey more than once we find ourselves, and will find ourselves, at a fork in the road where we must decide to either maintain ourselves firm in our Christian convictions, or do that which is personally, socially, culturally or politically correct. In this sense, to follow Christ can cause us great distress, since it is not easy (and sometimes even seems unfair) to put, on the one side of the balance, such important human values as the family, responsibilities towards associates, even including our own personal safety, and on the other side put our commitment to Christ.
 
However, this issue is often misunderstood. For it doesn’t have to do with abandoning the entire world and embarking on a fanatical religious life. After all, who is closer to God? One who locks themselves up in the church in order to pray day and night, and participates in nearly all the ministries, but is not capable of taking an interest in other people? Or one who, despite the daily job, takes the time to be a volunteer in a retirement home or an orphanage, taking these people, in addition to hope, a sincere smile?

Año Nuevo, Proyectos Nuevos

Después de mucho meditarlo en los últimos meses, he decido poner fin a esta aventura.
Este blog ya no sé seguirá editando más.
Gracias a todos aquellos quienes visitaron con frecuencia este espacio desde que estaba en spaces.live.com.
