How You Can Be A Blessing-Magnet

How You Can Be A
Blessing-Magnet

The Bible says, "Be thankful in all circumstances."
You see, some people put "conditions" to their happiness:
I'll be thankful if I find a boyfriend who is as cute as Enchong and has
the body of Derek.
I'll be thankful if my husband changes.
I'll be thankful if my friend apologizes to me.
I'll be thankful if I get promoted in my job.
I'll be thankful if I have a baby.
I'll be thankful if I graduate from school.
I'll be thankful if I buy a new cellphone.
Friend, don't do that. Don't be unfair to yourself!
Or you'll never be happy.
Don't wait for something to happen before you become thankful. Make a decision
to be thankful for the blessings that you have right now!
And you'll be happy forever.
Follow Psalms 77:11 when it says, I will remember your great deeds, Lord; I will

recall the wonders you did in the past.
Do you know what will happen?
By being thankful, you'll become a blessing magnet.
If you want to increase your blessings, you've got to be thankful for the
blessings that are already there.
Being Thankful Is Dynamite
Being thankful is powerful.
It has explosive power.
When you're thankful, you unlock your happiness. You unlock your peace. You
unlock the storeroom of God's blessings. And you unlock your wealth.
Let me explain.
Wealth is not your money. Wealth is not your land. Wealth is not your
jewelry. Why? Because wealth is a feeling.
Because wealth is not measured by how much money you have. Or how much land you
own. Or how much jewelry you possess. Wealth is measured by how thankful you
are.

Let me tell you a story.
Two years ago, a man came up to me, asking for prayers.
Irritation was written all over his face.
With much anger, he said, "Please pray for me, Brother Bo. My heart is so
heavy. I'm a salesman. I got P350,000 in commission…"
I looked at him in a funny way. I wondered, So what's so bad about that?
He shakes his head, "I know that seems big, Brother Bo, but it should have been
P500,000! But I didn't reach my quota by just a few pesos. Because of that
technicality, I didn't get half a million. I got P350,000 only…"
He felt so bad.
I prayed over him and asked God to heal his hurt.
After praying for him, I went backstage.
A friend of mine was waiting for me there.
When I saw her, she was smiling from ear to ear. She said, "Bo, I'm so happy. I
just received a P3000 increase in my salary!"
I began to laugh. Her gratitude was so refreshing.
Tell me. Who was richer among the two? The one who got P350,000? Or the
one who got the P3000?
Answer: The one who got the P3000.
Why?
Because wealth is not measured by how much money you have. It's measured by how
thankful you are.

Be Thankful Even When It's Difficult
I know.
Some of you might be saying, "But Bo, it's so difficult to be thankful
now. You don't know what I'm going through. My problems are over my head."
Perhaps you're buried in debt.
Perhaps your relationships are broken.
Perhaps sickness is ravaging your body.
Friend, if you want more miracles in your life, you've got to be thankful

not only for what you see, but for what you do not see.
Being thankful in all circumstances means penetrating the physical realm
and going into the spiritual realm. Entering into the sphere of the
invisible. And thanking God that He is working behind the shadows. That He is
working behind the storms of your life.
I remember the story of my friend, Aiai de las Alas.
Is It Storming In Your Life?
She was telling me how nervous she was when her first major movie was
about to be released—the first movie where she was the main star.
Before it's opening day, she prayed to God that it wouldn't rain. So that

a lot of people will watch her movie. She even went to Baclaran, knelt down, and

implored that there be no rain.
When she woke up on her movie's opening day, it wasn't raining. She
looked out the window and it was storming!
She switched on the radio. The radio reporter said, "Today, Pagasa has
declared Signal Number 3 over Metro Manila…"
Her heart sunk. That day, Aiai cried buckets of tears. She asked God why
He didn't answer her prayer. She felt abandoned by God.
But a few days later, she learned what really happened. Because of the
storm, school was cancelled. And all the students went to the malls. And just on

the opening day, her movie grossed P13 Million.
And her movie became the top grossing film of that year!
The storm became her biggest blessing.
Friend, are there violent storms raging in your life right now?
Don't give up. Don't lose hope. Because God will turn that storm into
your biggest blessing.
Let me end with one last instruction on being thankful…
Being Thankful On Credit
This is big.
This will impact your life in a powerful way.
Awhile ago, I told you to be thankful for the blessings that you already
have. But you also have to learn to be thankful for the blessings that are yet
to come.
Instead of praying with fear, "Lord, please give me a house. Please give me a
house. Please give me house!" say instead with confidence, "Lord, I thank you
for my house that is on it's way!"
Thank God in advance for what He will do.
In the words of T.D. Jakes, Thank God on credit. (In other words, may utang pa
si Lord sa iyo.)
Start thanking God in advance for the fulfillment of your dreams!

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez
PS.For TrulyRichClub Members Only: This Friday, I'm sending out my Stocks Update

Report to my TrulyRichClub members only.
In the Report, I'll tell you about a giant danger that you need watch out for,
now that the Stock Market is shooting up to the stars. This Report will protect
you from crazy mistakes a lot of people will be making in the next few months!
Not yet a TrulyRichClub Member? You're missing so much! Because I can teach you

how to prosper. For example, I believe you're missing a lot if you don't make
the Stock Market your magic piggybank.
Hey, I know what people are going to say… (A lot of "Buts".)
· "But Bo, I know many who got burned in the Stock Market."
· "But Bo, isn't the Stock Market for rich people only?"
Here are my answers:
· You're not going to "trade" the Stock Market. (That's why 85% of people

lose their money—because they trade.) You're going to "invest" in the Stock
Market. That's totally different. I'll teach you how to do this. If you follow

my simple strategy, you'll retire a multimillionaire.

· You say only people with big money can invest in the Stock Market? Tell

that to my maids at home. They will laugh at you. Because I taught my three
house helpers how to invest their small amounts each month--and they're now
exceedingly happy. Because their money has grown tremendously in their magic
piggybank called the Stock Market.
I repeat: Follow my strategy and you'll retire a multi-millionaire.

DOING GOOD WHILE DOING WELL

Refuse no one the good on which he has a claim when it is in your power to do it

for him. – Proverbs 3:27


"Doing good while doing well" is a principle taught in our Masters in
Entrepreneurship class. It's a corporate social responsibility to share success
with the community, especially with employees. When business is bad, obviously
there is nothing to give back. But when owners can afford an extravagant
lifestyle on their business allowances, their people must, at the very least,
enjoy full benefits and minimum wage.
Knowing I had a ministry- business then, my professor gave me a different
challenge: "Do well while doing good." This was tougher to follow. My struggles
to do both were eased with this prayer:
When business dips and sales are few, O Lord, sustain me. When the BIR comes and

finds non-existent income, O Lord, defend me. When strategies and ideas run dry,

O Lord, inspire me. When opportunities knock and the risk is scary, O Lord,
encourage me. When money is scarce and the SSS and Philhealth checks need to be
signed, O Lord, empower me. When you finally bless us with abundance and loyal
employees need a raise, O Lord, remind me. Lella Santiago
(mirellasantiago@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
To do good and do well are both our call.

Let me be generous to others the way You've been generous to me, Lord.

1st READING

The opening line of this reading is more than compelling — it is a command, not
just a suggestion. We should never withhold good from another person if it is in

our power to do it. God tells us that we should always be open to the
possibility of doing good, and if we can do it, then we should.


Proverbs 3:27-34
28 [27] Refuse no one the good on which he has a claim when it is in your power
to do it for him. 29 [28] Say not to your neighbor, "Go, and come again,
tomorrow I will give," when you can give at once. 30 [29] Plot no evil against
your neighbor, against him who lives at peace with you. 31 [30] Quarrel not
with a man without cause, with one who has done you no harm. 32 [31] Envy not
the lawless man and choose none of his ways 33 [32] To the LORD the perverse man

is an abomination, but with the upright is his friendship. 34 [33] The curse of
the LORD is on the house of the wicked, but the dwelling of the just he blesses;

35 [34] when he is dealing with the arrogant, he is stern, but to the humble he
shows kindness.

P S A L M

Psalm 15:2-3a, 3bc-4ab, 5
R: The just one shall live on your holy mountain, O Lord.
2 He who walks blamelessly and does justice; who thinks the truth in his heart 3

and slanders not with his tongue. (R) Who harms not his fellow man, nor takes up

a reproach against his neighbor; 4 by whom the reprobate is despised, while he
honors those who fear the LORD. (R) 5 Who lends not his money at usury and
accepts no bribe against the innocent. He who does these things shall never be
disturbed. (R)

G O S P E L

The imagery that Jesus uses in this story is quite reasonable and easy to
understand. Applying it to our lives takes a lot more effort as it requires
total commitment to be a living witness to the Gospel both in season and out of
season. The Gospel light ought to be shining through our lives at all times, not

just when we choose to let it shine. Faith, Christianity, loving God — they are
all ways of life, not part-time occupations.

Luke 8:16-18
16 Jesus said to the crowd: "No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel
or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who
enter may see the light. 17 For there is nothing hidden that will not become
visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light. 18 Take
care, then, how you hear. To anyone who has, more will be given, and from the
one who has not, even what he seems to have will be taken away."

my reflections
t h i n k : God tells us that we should always be open to the possibility of
doing good, and if we can do it, then we should.

When you say nothing at all

At the end of every school year, the seminary prepares a program as a tribute to

the seniors who have finished their seminary formation. Some of them will be
ordained, some will opt to take a break prior to ordination, and some will
decide to discern continuously for maybe other options in life.
When it's time to say thanks to the seminary priest formators, there is one
thing I notice in the thanksgiving speeches they give. It would usually run
something like this: " I thank Father for being a cojourneyer." "I thank the
fathers for the times they ate, played and prayed with us." "I thank Father for
showing us how to be a priest of Jesus Christ."
What do those words indicate? It seems to me that seminarians remember not so
much what we said in our homilies, discussed in our lectures, or developed in
our conferences and recollections. What they remember most, what leaves a deep
imprint is what we did together with them.

Today, Jesus reminds the multitude before Him that they are the light of the
world, a lamp that is lit not to be hidden but to be brought out in the open to
give light and be seen. Besides priests and those in the religious life, all
baptized Christians share in the priesthood of Christ. The Catechism calls this
the "common priesthood" of the baptized. We proclaim the Gospel of Christ not so

much with words as with the conduct of our lives. And by the same token, we
betray Christ's Gospel.

What we say is audible only to several pairs of ears. What we do, however, is
visible to innumerable pairs of eyes. Actions evangelize better than words. A
wise man once said, "What you do speaks so loud, I cannot hear what you say." As

the song goes, "You say it best, when you say nothing at all." Fr. Joel O. Jason

Reflection Question:
In Evangelii Nuntiandi #41, Pope Paul VI wrote: "Modern man listens more
willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it
is because they are witnesses." In what category do you belong to?


Lord Jesus, Your Word is a lamp unto my feet, and light unto my path. Together
with St. Paul I humbly declare, "I am not ashamed of the Gospel." Grant me grace

to live by it. Amen.

St. Agapitus, pray for us.

LITTLE THIEVES

"The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in
great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also
dishonest in great ones." – Luke 16:10

Did you ever steal money when you were a child?
My colleagues and I once talked about stealing coins from our parents when we
were kids. We reminisced about sneaking into our parents' rooms to look for
loose change in their pockets or purses so we could buy a candy, a biscuit or a
soda. We had a good laugh looking back at those days, but then we all realized
that we were little thieves! Loose change or not, it's still called stealing.
What causes us to be dishonest? Maybe it's the fear of being reprimanded for
something wrong we did. Maybe it's the desire for something we can't have and so

we secretly engage in monkey business to get ahead of others. No one would know
anyway. But do we really get away with it? Not really. Because just as we think
no one's looking, Somebody up there sees our secret misdeeds.
Let us strive to be trustworthy at all times and be reminded that to God there
is no light or grave sin. Even the smallest misdeed can never be right. Only
integrity counts.Nova Arias (nova.svp@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
What do you do when no one is looking?

May I practice integrity every second of my life, Lord. I want to be worthy of
standing before You.

1st READING

Amos is a country boy from a second rate kingdom who dares to speak at the
Temple of God in the north. The people consider him to be an insolent upstart,
and what is more, he has come to call them to repentance and conversion. Why on
earth should they listen to him? The simple answer to all of this is because he
speaks the truth. Truth does not care who you are or where you have come from or

where you are going — it is the same for all.

Amos 8:4-7
4 Hear this, you who trample upon the needy and destroy the poor of the land! 5
"When will the new moon be over," you ask, "that we may sell our grain, and the
sabbath, that we may display the wheat? We will diminish the ephah, add to the
shekel, and fix our scales for cheating! 6 We will buy the lowly man for silver,

and the poor man for a pair of sandals; even the refuse of the wheat we will
sell!" 7 The LORD has sworn by the pride of Jacob: Never will I forget a thing
they have done!

P S A L M

Psalm 113:1-2, 4-6, 7-8
R: Praise the Lord who lifts up the poor.
1 Praise, you servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. 2 Blessed be
the name of the LORD both now and forever. (R) 4 High above all nations is the
LORD; above the heavens is his glory. 5 Who is like the LORD, our God, who is
enthroned on high 6 and looks upon the heavens and the earth below? (R) 7 He
raises up the lowly from the dust; from the dunghill he lifts up the poor 8 to
seat them with princes, with the princes of his own people. (R)

2nd READING

There is only one mediator between God and humanity and His name is Jesus
Christ. We need to remember this when we go looking for the answers in life. We
also need to remember that any understanding of how the saints intervene in our
lives is dependent upon this truth. The saints, Mary included, simply lead us to

Jesus who along with the Spirit has the power to transform our lives.

1 Timothy 2:1-8
1 Beloved: First of all, then, I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and

thanksgivings be offered for everyone, 2 for kings and for all in authority,
that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all devotion and dignity. 3 This
is good and pleasing to God our savior, 4 who wills everyone to be saved and to
come to knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God. There is also one
mediator between God and the human race, Christ Jesus, himself human, 6 who gave

himself as ransom for all. This was the testimony at the proper time. 7 For this

I was appointed preacher and apostle — I am speaking the truth, I am not lying—,

teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 It is my wish, then, that in every

place the men should pray, lifting up holy hands, without anger or argument.

G O S P E L


Life is all about making choices. The rich man in the parable has to choose — to

care for Lazarus or to ignore him. We, too, face this choice often in our lives.

I wonder how we choose? I wonder whether we live in solidarity with the poor,
seeking to help them, or whether we are part of the problem? Let us all examine
our lives closely to see whether or not we act for the poor or against them. It
is probably a mixture of both.

Luke 16:1-13
1 Jesus said to his disciples, "A rich man had a steward who was reported to him

for squandering his property. 2 He summoned him and said, 'What is this I hear
about you? Prepare a full account of your stewardship, because you can no longer

be my steward.' 3 The steward said to himself, 'What shall I do, now that my
master is taking the position of steward away from me? I am not strong enough to

dig and I am ashamed to beg. 4 I know what I shall do so that, when I am removed

from the stewardship, they may welcome me into their homes.' 5 He called in his
master's debtors one by one. To the first he said, 'How much do you owe my
master?' 6 He replied, 'One hundred measures of olive oil.' He said to him,
'Here is your promissory note. Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.' 7 Then

to another he said, 'And you, how much do you owe?' He replied, 'One hundred
kors of wheat.' He said to him, 'Here is your promissory note; write one for
eighty.' 8 And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently.

"For the children of this world are more prudent in dealing with their own
generation than are the children of light. 9 I tell you, make friends for
yourselves with dishonest wealth, so that when it fails, you will be welcomed
into eternal dwellings. 10 The person who is trustworthy in very small matters
is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small

matters is also dishonest in great ones. 11 If, therefore, you are not
trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth? 12 If
you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you what is
yours? 13 No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the

other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and
mammon."

my reflections
t h i n k : Truth does not care who you are or where you have come from or where

you are going — it is the same for all.

Initiative …finishative

Today's parable is about the wise manager. The manager is about to be dismissed
by his master for malpractice. Immediately, he set up a PR strategy to make sure

that people will be sympathetic to him once he is dismissed. So he went and
sought out all of his master's debtors and issued them a half-price discount for

all their debts thereby painting himself as a humanitarian hero of the masses.
In the end of the parable, the manager is praised for his enterprising ways.
Jesus praised the servant in the parable not because of his selfish plan. He was

praised because he had the cleverness to make a plan and, more importantly, to
execute the plan.
There was a man who was a chain smoker. He wanted to change so he gathered
medical journals to educate himself on the evil effects of smoking. After
reading quite a number of medical journals, he immediately made a resolution to
stop reading. The man made a plan but he was not willing to execute it.
Many of us Christians go through life without a master plan like aimless
wanderers. Some are committed to make plans but carrying out the plan is another

matter. But here is the principle: change is not an event, it is a process. It
is not enough that we commit ourselves to an event. We must also commit
ourselves to the process. That is why there is that good business principle that

says, "Plan your work and then work your plan." Planning our work is what we
call initiative. Working our plan is what we can call "finishative" — the will
to finish what we have started.
Have you made plans for your work, for your personal life, for your marriage,
for your spiritual life? That's good, you have initiative. I pray you will also
have the "finishative" to carry them through. Fr. Joel O. Jason

Reflection Question:
1. Lay down your goals for your life, then make definite action plans to carry
them out.
2. Let us not be just "churchpew" Christians; let us also be "blue jeans"
Christians.

Lord, help me to have the initiative, the resolve and the commitment to improve
my life in all areas.

St. Pomposa, pray for us.

Singing for God

"… He called out, 'Whoever has ears to hear ought to hear.'" – Luke 8:8

I thank God for instituting many changes in our company. But the most
significant change was the time when our company president entered the Renewal.
Slowly but surely, he became bolder in sharing God's Word during the regular
company meetings and conferences. His company targets and objectives were drawn
from his Christian knowledge. I, too, became bold such that my presentations
always included biblical quotations as reference.
A change was also introduced in the prayer meeting at the office. From the
traditional "sharing" on how God works in people's lives, people were also asked

to sing Christian songs to give glory and honor to the Lord. Such singing
brought encouragement to the sales people attending the prayer meeting. I have
also sung in those occasions.

For many years now, our company has topped the sales in the group of companies.
Truly, God honors those who honor Him openly and boldly.Donna España

REFLECTION:
Did you know that singing praise and worship is doubly praying to God?

My heart sings out the goodness and love of God.

COMPANION

1st READING

The resurrection of the dead is all about transformation of the mortal into the
immortal. The body that enters the tomb, in the case of the human person, rises
from the dead to a life of immortality. Jesus makes this possible by being the
first to travel that path. As it is with His baptism, He did not need to have
any sins forgiven as He was sinless; so it is with His resurrection — He did not

need to experience this because He is already immortal in the sense that He is
fully God as well as man.


1 Corinthians 15:35-37, 42-49
35 Brothers and sisters: Someone may say, "How are the dead raised? With what
kind of body will they come back?" 36 You fool! What you sow is not brought to
life unless it dies. 37 And what you sow is not the body that is to be but a
bare kernel of wheat, perhaps, or of some other kind. 42 So also is the
resurrection of the dead. It is sown corruptible; it is raised incorruptible. 43

It is sown dishonorable; it is raised glorious. It is sown weak; it is raised
powerful. 44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there
is a natural body, there is also a spiritual one. 45 So, too, it is written,
"The first man, Adam, became a living being," the last Adam a life-giving
spirit. 46 But the spiritual was not first; rather the natural and then the
spiritual. 47 The first man was from the earth, earthly; the second man, from
heaven. 48 As was the earthly one, so also are the earthly, and as is the
heavenly one, so also are the heavenly. 49 Just as we have borne the image of
the earthly one, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly one.

P S A L M

Psalm 56:10c-12, 13-14
R: I will walk in the presence of God, in the light of the living.
9 [10] Now I know that God is with me. 10 [11] In God, in whose promise I glory,

11 [12] in God I trust without fear; what can flesh do against me? (R) 12 [13] I

am bound, O God, by vows to you; your thank offerings I will fulfill. 13 [14]
For you have rescued me from death, my feet, too, from stumbling; that I may
walk before God in the light of the living. (R)

G O S P E L

One of the strongest temptations the world uses to distract us from our faith is

busyness. We need to be aware of this so we can work against it. The ancient
Greeks were very aware of the need for solitude and reflection of life and its
mysteries. We need to rediscover this necessity and practice it in our lives.
Let us listen to Socrates for inspiration: The unreflected life is not worth
living.

Luke 8:4-15
4 When a large crowd gathered, with people from one town after another
journeying to Jesus, he spoke in a parable. 5 "A sower went out to sow his seed.

And as he sowed, some seed fell on the path and was trampled, and the birds of
the sky ate it up. 6 Some seed fell on rocky ground, and when it grew, it
withered for lack of moisture. 7 Some seed fell among thorns, and the thorns
grew with it and choked it. 8 And some seed fell on good soil, and when it grew,

it produced fruit a hundredfold." After saying this, he called out, "Whoever has

ears to hear ought to hear." 9 Then his disciples asked him what the meaning of
this parable might be. 10 He answered, "Knowledge of the mysteries of the
kingdom of God has been granted to you; but to the rest, they are made known
through parables so that 'they may look but not see, and hear but not
understand.' 11 "This is the meaning of the parable. The seed is the word of
God. 12 Those on the path are the ones who have heard, but the devil comes and
takes away the word from their hearts that they may not believe and be saved. 13

Those on rocky ground are the ones who, when they hear, receive the word with
joy, but they have no root; they believe only for a time and fall away in time
of trial. 14 As for the seed that fell among thorns, they are the ones who have
heard, but as they go along, they are choked by the anxieties and riches and
pleasures of life, and they fail to produce mature fruit. 15 But as for the seed

that fell on rich soil, they are the ones who, when they have heard the word,
embrace it with a generous and good heart, and bear fruit through perseverance."

my reflections
t h i n k : "The unreflected life us not worth living."

Men and Women of the Word

When I was still a seminarian, I underwent a program called CLAYE (Catholic Lay
Evangelization). It involves house-to-house visitation and sharing of the Word
of God. I was assigned to visit houses at a certain parish. Clutching my Bible,
I visited a house and saw a woman at her front lawn. I greeted her good morning.

The moment she saw me, she immediately went inside her house without saying
anything.

That afternoon, I saw the same woman in the parish church. She recognized me. I
asked her why she did not entertain me. She told me she thought I was a Mormon.
When I asked her why, she told me it was because "you were clutching a Bible."
Why is it that when we see someone with a Bible, we associate him to be anything

but a Catholic? The answer is simple. We have lost our identity as men and women

of the Word. Catholics are no longer known to be people who soak in the Word of
God.
Friends, let me remind you. The Bible is a Catholic document. It was compiled by

Catholics. The Canon of Scriptures was formalized by the Catholic Church. If
there is anyone to be associated with the Bible, it should be Catholics.
Today, Jesus calls us the soil upon which the seed of the Word of God is sown.
Our vocation is to be filled with God's Word. Read the Word of God. Pray the
Word of God. Live the Word of God. Let us recover our identity as men and women
of the Word. Fr. Joel O. Jason

Reflection Question:
St. Jerome, a Catholic saint who translated the Bible from Greek to Latin, is
known to have said, "Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ." How
well do you know the Scriptures? That will determine how much you know Christ.

Lord Jesus, You feed us with the Word and the Sacraments. Rekindle our passion
for knowing You in Your Word. Amen.

St. Dominic Trach, pray for us.
