3 There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens:

2     a time to be born and a time to die,
    a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3     a time to kill and a time to heal,
    a time to tear down and a time to build,
4     a time to weep and a time to laugh,
    a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5     a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
    a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6     a time to search and a time to give up,
    a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7     a time to tear and a time to mend,
    a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8     a time to love and a time to hate,
    a time for war and a time for peace.

The technic he used was like the ladder. He knew if he will move up and improved his situation, he needed to double time.

2. Charity

He had many investments and lots of business ventures and charities. All around the globe always discussed about business and investments. There’s a lot guru’s out there. But only few discussed about charity. Some people think it in a negative way. But hey there’s hidden gem in charity. We will dig deeper to this topic.

Luke 6:38

“Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you”.

Giving back or helping others is another way of showing how we as God’s stewards of God’s treasure. He judges our motives. Some people change when they become rich, while others prefers to help because they have compassionate and have responsibility to God.

Indeed if you give, it will come back to you in many folds until you overflow. That’s generosity. That’s the equation which the world hates, but has signficant meaning with God.

After all Gods wealth is enormous, but it is given to a heart that’s willing to help others. Not selfish. Not greedy and self-centered.

In everything we do, we have to reflect what Jesus Christ did for us. A sinless human, a God who humbled himself and became man, took all our sins with him and died on the cross and gave us eternal life. That’s nothing compared to wealth. That’s why wealth here on earth is not our top 1 priority. It’s our heart towards God. He is after our very hearts.

3. What does fear in the Lord mean?

We know Manny also has great fear in God. He turned away from many vices, womanizing, casinos and other sinful lifestyle. No he’s not perfect, he just want to pleased God. Pleasing God is the result of having fear in him. How come Sen. Manny has this insights and was able to pull off in life? Let alone his greatness and wealth. Let’s read in this verse:

Isaiah 11:1-3

    and a branch from his roots shall bear fruit.
And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him,
    the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
    the Spirit of counsel and might,
    the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.
And his delight shall be in the fear of the Lord.
He shall not judge by what his eyes see,
    or decide disputes by what his ears hear,

Sen Manny in his walk with the Lord, has received wisdom from God. That’s why he is where he is right now. The Holy Spirit leads all believers that’s why they will received wisdom and understanding, counsel and might, this verse is actually for all of us. It was meant for all of us. But Manny knew this, and he applied this in his life.

Thoughts about his future

Sen Manny has done a lot, and he will do more in the future. Whether he will pursue running for president or still continue boxing, or anything else. The matter of the fact that he loved God more than anything is important. God is there to see him through.
