Respect Ownership

Respecting others’ ownership
Means
Respecting my Lord
Loving Him
A way to worship Him
Being honest in my dealings
According to my soft conscience

Since my business mentor doesn’t use her iPhone 3S anymore, might as well use it for my ministry work and mobile wifi hotspot. It took me two weeks of thoughts then turn into courage to ask her. If she doesn’t want to sell, it’s not a problem. She has her own right not to sell it. I’m prepared to be rejected. I can understand too. So that I can keep track on the cellular data usage. She suggests to use MyStarHub app. I explain that the app is for personal use. But my mobile broadband is under business plan. The service provider doesn’t support such featured for business plan.

Courageously, I ask her via WhatsApp, “Since you don’t use your iPhone 3S, I am wondering. May I buy your iPhone 3S for $50?”

“Sure, but why do you need it? You can have it; no charge.” I am so surprised with her respond.

I explain, “Thanks. I need it for Internet hotspot. Currently, the wifi hotspot can’t show the data usage.”

She is baffled, “What Internet hotspot? You will be carrying 3 phones!!!”

“Wifi hotspot. Sorry for the mistaken expression. Oh yes.” I’m trying to express myself better.

She can’t see the logic behind my purpose, “Your phones can also receive wifi hotspot. Don’t see the logic.”

Rather than explain with words, I quickly respond, “I’ll explain further. It’s better to explain visually.”

“Unless there is great value add, I don’t want to be penny wise pound foolish.” is her feedback.

I understand her goodwill, “Understand. The problem is StarHub can’t give me the data usage I have used for the mobile data. My current wifi hotspot can’t give my data usage. I have to think another alternative way.”

Out of her goodwill, she suggests, “Have you tried My Starhub App?”

I’ve tried it many months ago to no avail so I answer her, “Yes. It’s for personal line but not for business mobile data plan.”

“Why did you register under business?” She wondered.

I explain, “I register under business because I use the Internet to do my business work. I need the secure connection for doing my work and protect my working data files. Free wifi can cause hackers to tap into my files.”

Since then there is no response from her. Now I begin to understand myself better. My actions are ahead of everyone. Dad’s thoughts and actions are ahead of everybody. Why am I like my dad to care others too much?

Now, I begin to understand my problem to often being misunderstood. Last year, I mentioned to my business mentor that WC gave his old MacBookAir. I forgot to say to her that I don’t mind to pay for the MacBookAir. Unexpectedly to be given.

IC tends to ask for free things for older electronic devices. However, I don’t mind to pay for the second hand electronic devices. It is others’ property. I need to respect their ownership and the cost they had paid to acquire those devices. If I’m in their position, I want to be respected and don’t want to be taken advantage. It hurts to be taken advantage. Many times I’m too soft hearted thus often being taken advantage.

May this bless you and improve your walk in the Lord.

Temptation

Posted on

So alluring
Looks delicious
Seems harmless
Wishing to get near
Driven closer to temptation
Flee from temptation or dive into temptation?

Flee from lust
Flee from temptation
In honour for the body our Creator bless us
In honour and respect our Lord

Dive into temptation
Sink deeper in temptation
Destroying ourselves
Giving place to the devil

The idea of temptation lights a bulb in my mind. Whenever I faced temptation, I find it so alluring. Once the object is removed, the tempting feeling gradually diminishes. Oh, noodle snack is my temptation. Too many packs of it can disappear from the drawer within a few days. They make appearance in my stomach.

Does control gives us power?
Can’t we respect each other’s decision if not harmful?
Can’t we respect each other’s boundary?
Most relationships fail due to
Exerting too much force
Crossing the boundaries
Disrespectful attitudes
Manipulative hearts, attitudes and actions.

“Demands control” came to my mind when I was thinking the bullies. During my primary school, my classmates bullied me. I often felt why I was the one being bullied. Now, as I think back, I’m an Introvert and am very quiet. Is that the reason to bully me? Then “Depressed Character” spoke to my mind.

Respect

Does our respect for our God is shown through our actions?
Do we care to love Him through loving others?
