Tiyung Dayak – “The Sour Dayak Apple” in Bidayuh Politics

For the Greater Glory of Bidayuh Politics

The “words of comfort”…

Last night I had a chance doing some Biblical readings, following the daily readings (reflection) given by the Catholic Church. Well, yesterday’s topic touched on the love for money and anything related to it (quest for power, prestige, oppression, whatever lah…).

Allow me to verbatim part of it:

Those who strive to be rich fall into temptations and traps. A lot of foolish and harmful ambitions plunge them into ruin and destruction. Indeed, the love of money is the root of every evil. Because of this greed, some have wandered away from the faith, bringing on themselves afflictions of every kind. (1 Timothy 6: 9 – 10)

Part of the following Psalm is about the irresponsibility of the rich:

Fear not when someone grows rich,

when his power becomes oppressively great,

for nothing will he take when he dies;

his wealth and pomp he will leave behind.

Though he praised himself in his lifetime,

“All will say that I have enjoyed life,”

he will join the generation of his forebears,

who will never again see the light.

People of wealth have no thought,

they will be silenced like the beasts. (Psalm 49: 17 – 21)

Wah, ada betol jugak… I’m putting this in my blog as there are lots of “mischievous things” currently happened here and there. I would say that I’m judging it indirectly lah… It’s basic instinct, anyway!

Well, it’s not the end of the world yet! Read it here, so as to make life keeps on going…
