Siguranta

Februarie 14, 2013

Azi am vazut o pictograma care ilustreaza siguranta masinilor Mercedes.

A fost un moment foarte puternic, aproape ca am simtit mana de deasupra mea. E un simbol bun pentru siguranta, in ce ma priveste.

You Must be Perfect … ” …….. Jesus said, „You must be perfect even as your Father in heaven is perfect.” Does He not thus expect us to be perfect? 

It is regrettable that the words of Jesus „You shall be perfect” were mistranslated by some as „You must be perfect.” The Greek verb (eseste εσεσθε), (εσομαι esomai), ( كونوا ), used in the original Greek, is a verb in the future tense. 

It is a promise which says very clearly that perfection is to be granted in the future by grace. It is an ongoing process of continued growth in the life of Christ of which perfection is the goal. 

In the English translation ( كما في العربية ايضاً ) it is incorrectly translated in the present tense and in the imperative implying that we are expected to reach perfection now. It is not you must be perfect but you shall be ( ستكونون ) perfect. 

Perfection in this life according to Orthodox theology and spirituality is not the state of „I have arrived. I have made it. I am saved.”

Rather, it is the state of „I am on the way. I am moving. I am on a journey. I am growing.” 

Man’s life is never complete even in the Kingdom of God. We shall always be „on the way.” Our very perfection is always to grow more perfect, more like unto Christ. And this is a never-ending process.

Criza

Februarie 1, 2013

E criza, nici macar nu mai e o stire. De fapt, atunci cand am aflat prima oara ca e criza nici macar nu m-am mirat, ma obisnuisem cu ea din nastere. Azi tata a fost la Constanta, pe un santier. Nu era sigur ca avea cu ce sa se intoarca. Asa a aflat ca este un singur tren Bucuresti-Constanta dimineata si unul singur seara. Motivul este plesnitor. S-a furat linia ferata. Am inteles ca vreo 22 de metri cantaresc cateva tone. Cum au reusit? Au fost uniti si pregatiti. Si este si o veste buna: ne-au luat atatea ca ne-au provocat sa fim creativi. Oamenii se descurca si sunt uniti. Iar eu am fost anuntata azi ca, daca nu-mi fac norma penru ca nu e de lucru, mi se va taia din salariu. Si, daca o depasesc, voi primi un premiu. Astept premiul.Chiar mi-ar prinde bine niste bani, ca tot vreau sa-mi extind terapia.
