Gratitude through tithing

Each one of us is God’s beautiful masterpiece. Through His powerful hands He can do great things for the goodness of all. But there is one exemplary thing that everyone hardly finds out on how to be grateful. Most of us do not have any idea on how to express our gratitude except to help fellow brethren through tithing.

This act of generosity will surely inspire more Christians to do the same way like Jesus did. Let us all remember that the “Lord our God, for it is He who gives us power to get wealth, that He swore to our fathers, as it is this days.” (Deuteronomy 8:18)

In tithing we learn how to put God first in all graces that He has given, trust Him in time of darkness as much as we give in whatever He gives in us. Let us learn how to “store our treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. For where our treasure is, there your heart will also be.” (Matthew 6:2)

“If one of our brothers should become poor, in any of our towns within our land that the Lord our God is giving us, we shall not harden our heart or shut our hand against our poor brother, but we shall open our hand to him and lend him sufficient for his need, whatever it may be.” (Deuteronomy 15:7-8)

We should “not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present our requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard our hearts and our minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6-7)

My dear brothers and sisters in Christ let us all remember that “whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed and whoever closes his ear to the cry of the poor will himself call out and not be answered.” (Proverbs 19:17, 21:13)

Jail CEOs of firms involved in oil spills

The 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill was the largest oil spill in United States by the time it happened. While it was a disastrous incident, killing thousands of birds, fish and intertidal invertebrates, along with many dolphins, elephant seals and sea lions, the legacy of the Santa Barbara oil spill is lasting and impressive and includes the creation of the National Environmental Policy Act, the US Environmental Protection Agency, and National Marine Sanctuaries system, which until today is seriously protecting important marine ecosystems around the United States.

Your right to privacy and BIR’s subpoena powers

Once upon a time, the BIR issued a revenue regulation (RR) that requires broker dealers to divulge personal information of their clients such as TIN, birthdate, and address. It anchored its directive from the Tax Code where the Commissioner may mandate anyone to reveal information necessary in the performance of his functions. The said RR is a test on how far the Commissioner can stretch this power. If upheld, the floodgates will be opened, and everyone’s personal information will be out in the cold.
