How to make the Philippines prosperous?
Skilled workers are leaving the country to find work in foreign lands. Many of them were treated as slaves and thousands toiled in back breaking jobs. You can find them as household servants in palaces and homes of rich people.
With the myriad problems besetting the country, they lost their sense of dignity and just trying to survive in the midst of their powerful neighboring countries.
The Philippines?. NO. It was Israel during the time of prophet Isaiah.
The time when their race was looked down upon as inferior, incompetent and powerless.
In the midst of these heart-wrenching problems , Isaiah wrote an effective solution which after following it made Israel a prosperous nation.
The Solution?. Let us read, Isaiah 58:
" Remove the chains of oppression and the yoke of injustice, and let the oppressed go free. Share your food with the hungry and open your homes to the homeless poor. Give clothes to those who have nothing to wear.
Then the darkness around you will turn to the brightness of noon. And I will always guide you and satisfy you with good things. I will keep you strong and well. You will be like a garden that has plenty of water. Like a spring of water that never runs dry. Your people will rebuild what has long been in ruins, building again on the old foundations" .
The letter of Isaiah was proven and any country, organization or family can be prosperous if we will just listen and follow the prescribe solution
