humble yet sharp-sighted

I love guitar.
Though i cannot play it well. ^-^
But one thing that i know.
It can be played with other instrument, as well as played solo.

It has a wide variation.
6-string is the most general, but four-, seven-, eight-, nine-, ten-, eleven-, twelve-, thirteen- and eighteen-string guitars are also available.
Mine: 6 strings off course.

Guitar is one of the music instrument that can be found easily.
Though it can be played in the well-known Concert Hall by outstanding musician,
Yet it also can be played in the street by street musician (or even "pengamen").
You can find guitar in any caste.

Well, i am not a guitar expert :P
Neither do I want to explain about guitar like an expert.

I just want to share that today i was reminded by this verse.

Proverbs 17: 18
It’s stupid to try to get something for nothing,
or run up huge bills you can never pay. (MSG)

Another version:
A man devoid of understanding shakes hands in a pledge,
And becomes surety for his friend.

A man void of good sense gives a pledge and becomes security for another in the presence of his neighbor. (AMP)

Sometimes, life tempted us to play as a "good samaritan".
Become a hero for others without knowing what's going on.

If we know nothing, it's stupid to be involved in someone else matter, then even gives a pledge a becomes a security for another.

What do you really want to achieve by giving a pledge?
What do you really want to achieve by becomes security for another?
Is it because of your pride?
Is it because you want to play a "good samaritan" thus people will recognise you as one?
Is it because we are so boastful about ourselves?

Lately i have been reminded "Be humble dear, be humble. HUMILITY. Write down in your heart that you have to learn to be humble".

It might be simple. But it can be everything.
We might heard it often. But so hard to live in it.
Let our humility can be found in any caste as well.
Not only when we are around the poor (in the street), but we also can managed our humility around the rich (in the well-known place).

Another reminder today :
Our life, has a purpose.
Everything has a purpose.
Whatever we do now, it's because we want to achieve something.

Just like i bought my guitar, was actually as a tool to worship Him.
*though i rarely use it lately. (doh) i really being reminded to worship Him more, no matter what*

We need to know, what we want to get.
We need to set a goal in our life.
Thus everything we do, will take us closer to the goal itself.

It might be take days, weeks, months, or even years.
But as you live in your dreams, whatever you do will take u closer to the goal.

Set up your goal now!


humble doesn't mean that you are not smart!
humble doesn't mean that you are being abused by others.
humble doesn't mean that you are being used by others.
