Take time to think

 Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.

 

 What is culture?

  • The taste in art and manner that are favored by a social group
  • All the knowledge and values shared by a society
  • The attitude and behavior that are characteristic of a particular social group or organization
  • A particular society at a particular time and place
  • Distinctive ways of living built up by a group of people
  • Social development with complex legal and political and religious organizations
  • People assembled to promote sociability, and communal activity

 

How is it formed?

To determine the origin of cultures, we have to go to the beginning, which started in the east. (the Old Testament gives us the history of civilization) and front that we can understand the culture of the East

Fast forward to the 21st century the eastern culture has not changed much but is now entwining with the culture of the west

The Western culture started at Pentecost ( The New Testament become the starting point for the western culture fulfilling the great commission) the formation of this culture brings wealth and persecution as it expanse into the eastern culture.

Fast forward to the 21st century - the western culture in marriage with the eastern culture creates a whole new culture which is called " freedom and human's right" Good concept! but it has become extreme in nature and lost its effectiveness, and will continue to do so generation by generation

 What is its purpose?

  • To create harmony
  • To create balance
  • To create differences

 Do you know? when cultures clashes, governing becomes complicated, complex, and dramatic. The purpose become blurred and unattainable.

  

Holy Father, You have also given me a body to exit in the land of the living, with this body I have to maneuver through diseases, and viruses, this body has also become your temple, teach me how to take care and discipline this body to make it effective and productive in the land of the living

Do you why I rather have Jesus? This world ( The land of the living) is temporary and changes every day, with Jesus I can walk from the temporary into the eternal and still be me and Him hand in hand
