The Folly of Chasing Returns

By Randell Tiongson One of my favorite definitions of investments is this—“The commitment of funds made in expectation of some positive rate of return. If the investment is properly undertaken, the return will be commensurate with the risk the investor assumes.” Whenever people invest, their primary concern is almost always the return. It is obvious that we should be concerned with returns, as I have never met anyone who invested and expected no return. However, returns are not the only thing you need to be concerned with. Even prior to concerning yourself with returns, what you may want to...

One on One With God: Prayer

By Dr. Harold Sala Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.  Luke 22:42 Of all the sites in Israel which are significant, none touches my emotions more than the Garden of Gethsemane on the gentle slopes of the Mount of Olives across from the walled city where the golden dome of the Mosque of Omar glistens in the sun and glows in the moonlight.

Philippians 4:19, KJV “Give us this day our daily bread,” were the words of Jesus when His disciples came to Him with the request, “Lord, teach us to pray.”  Nothing is more basic than food, and when you lack it, you go one on one with God, asking Him to meet that need.  When He does it in such a way that you know it was He who did it, your faith grows.

BOOK REVIEW: The Parent Map, Navigating the Way to Raising Great Kids

By Edwin D. Arceo A lot of parents aspire to have great kids, and I have yet to meet someone who aspires otherwise. As many fathers and mothers would testify, parenting is not for the faint of heart. One thing that I want to quote the author of this book I am reviewing, Dr. Harold Sala, is this: “Parenting starts before you even get married.” What he meant is if you have a desire to marry and become parents then you should start learning how to be one even before you get married, because parenting is a lifelong process....
