Sis told Dad that She wants to be a Christian...

Came back home from school... after a long thoughts on the bus about Christian Ministry and about Christian Living esp in family issues and ministry issue... i concluded when i alighted that i am still unsure... unsure of when to be respectful to parents and when to stand up for faith... what does it mean to be lovingly... what is consider as rebellious? I had decided that i have to ask people...

When I opened the door, as I reached home, I overheard immediately the conversation between my Dad and sis. My sister is telling dad that she wanna be a Christian. My first thought... what shall I do?... what shall i do when i had just concluded that i have to ask people about family issues...? shall i chip into their conversation...? Would I become impatient and start to barl out at dad...? I decided to 逃避...

I turned on my pc... start calling janice.. msn people to talk..

after talking to janice... i did what she suggested. I sat beside my sister and just listened.. self control... self control.. prayed.. self control..

I guess my sister was indeed good in being calm.. or I guess that it's me that was hotheaded. Their conversation, unlike mine, didn't ended with quarrel and tears. My dad made his stand.. he said that he would not interfer any of my sis's decisions when she reached 21. I laughed in my heart... sis is turning 21 in 3 months time.. so i told my sis tt it's a good deal. That's kinda end the conversation.

I asked her how is she feeling after the talk.. she mentioned that she felt happy.. cuz she knows ,at last, what's dad's thinking. I always know dad's thought.. but i'm never felt happy for that... for i see it as sin.. utterly sinful... trying to find excuses for his pride.. for hating Christianity.

Nevertheless, felt relieved after the whole epsoide.

Mat 5:10-12 ESV "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. (11) "Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. (12) Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
