Nos encontramos en el momento histórico donde muchos tenemos el privilegio de poder aprender sobre diferentes temas a la vez. Hay quienes utilizan YouTube, otros adquieren cursos en línea, y también aprenden por diferentes vías. Es emocionante estar al día con muchos temas. Sin embargo, si tienes como objetivo en un futuro no muy lejano destacarte en tu área profesional o en el terreno de lo online, es necesario que tengas maestría. Pero no hablo de un grado, te hablo de… ¡escucha!
Sin is a slippery slope. The devil entices us in ways that he knows will get our attention and leave us constantly craving more. The good news is this: when we ask God for help, He's quick to give us discernment to handle the enemy's schemes, and wisdom to seek the freedom that comes from following His righteous path.
Years & Years began as a three-piece electropop outfit, turning out danceable hits like 2015's "King." But in 2021 they announced that the band would become the solo project of frontman Olly Alexander. Alexander, who also starred in the Channel 4/HBO series, "It's A Sin," joins us for a Listening Party for Years & Years' new album, Night Call.
La distancia entre Santiago y la próxima parada de Julio, Viña del Mar, era de apenas unos cien kilómetros. El autobús lo dejó en la estación a media mañana. Ni bien se bajó del vehículo, Julio reconoció un olor familiar. Sal. Sal y humedad, los olores típicos del océano. Una brisa fresca recorrió la estación. «Otra vez frente al mar», pensó Julio. «Aunque este no parece ser el mismo océano que en Cartagena». Julio extrañaba el mar. El mar chileno, un sector del océano Pacífico, era muy distinto al mar Caribe que bañaba la costa de Cartagena. Era frío y oleoso, más hostil. Sin embargo, Julio agradecía la oportunidad de estar otra vez cerca del agua. Le gustaba mirar el largo horizonte de la costa. Viña del Mar, por su parte, estaba en plena actividad. Después de todo, era una ciudad balnearia en pleno verano. Pero Julio notó que eso no era lo único. Por todos lados había gente levantando escenarios, pegando carteles, cercando calles y comercios. Julio se acercó a uno de los afiches: «Festival Internacional de la Canción de Viña del Mar», decía. «El evento comenzará en dos días.» «Creo que puedo demorarme un tiempo por aquí», pensó Julio. Glossary media mañana: mid-morning. olor: smell. oleoso, oleosa: oily. balnearia, balneario: seaside. escenario: stage. cercar: to fence. afiches: posters.
A lot of believers feel stuck in the relationship with God and are not experiencing the growth and transformation that the Gospel offers. This is a direct result of believing a “small Gospel”. In this episode, Peter Louis and Vik Fomenko unpack how a right view of the Gospel produces a transformational, overcoming, unwavering faith.To dive deeper into the truth of the Gospel and its transformational power check out Peter's book “Back To The Gospel”https://www.amazon.com/Back-Gospel-Peter-Louis/dp/0998011401Support the show (https://app.clovergive.com/app/giving/clodo-braveheartministries)

Psalms and Wisdom: Psalm 24 Psalm 24 (Listen) The King of Glory A Psalm of David. 24 The earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof,1 the world and those who dwell therein,2 for he has founded it upon the seas and established it upon the rivers. 3 Who shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place?4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false and does not swear deceitfully.5 He will receive blessing from the LORD and righteousness from the God of his salvation.6 Such is the generation of those who seek him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.2 Selah 7 Lift up your heads, O gates! And be lifted up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD, strong and mighty, the LORD, mighty in battle!9 Lift up your heads, O gates! And lift them up, O ancient doors, that the King of glory may come in.10 Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory! Selah Footnotes  24:1 Or and all that fills it  24:6 Septuagint, Syriac, and two Hebrew manuscripts; Masoretic Text who seek your face, Jacob (ESV) Pentateuch and History: Genesis 23 Genesis 23 (Listen) Sarah's Death and Burial 23 Sarah lived 127 years; these were the years of the life of Sarah. 2 And Sarah died at Kiriath-arba (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan, and Abraham went in to mourn for Sarah and to weep for her. 3 And Abraham rose up from before his dead and said to the Hittites,1 4 “I am a sojourner and foreigner among you; give me property among you for a burying place, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.” 5 The Hittites answered Abraham, 6 “Hear us, my lord; you are a prince of God2 among us. Bury your dead in the choicest of our tombs. None of us will withhold from you his tomb to hinder you from burying your dead.” 7 Abraham rose and bowed to the Hittites, the people of the land. 8 And he said to them, “If you are willing that I should bury my dead out of my sight, hear me and entreat for me Ephron the son of Zohar, 9 that he may give me the cave of Machpelah, which he owns; it is at the end of his field. For the full price let him give it to me in your presence as property for a burying place.” 10 Now Ephron was sitting among the Hittites, and Ephron the Hittite answered Abraham in the hearing of the Hittites, of all who went in at the gate of his city, 11 “No, my lord, hear me: I give you the field, and I give you the cave that is in it. In the sight of the sons of my people I give it to you. Bury your dead.” 12 Then Abraham bowed down before the people of the land. 13 And he said to Ephron in the hearing of the people of the land, “But if you will, hear me: I give the price of the field. Accept it from me, that I may bury my dead there.” 14 Ephron answered Abraham, 15 “My lord, listen to me: a piece of land worth four hundred shekels3 of silver, what is that between you and me? Bury your dead.” 16 Abraham listened to Ephron, and Abraham weighed out for Ephron the silver that he had named in the hearing of the Hittites, four hundred shekels of silver, according to the weights current among the merchants. 17 So the field of Ephron in Machpelah, which was to the east of Mamre, the field with the cave that was in it and all the trees that were in the field, throughout its whole area, was made over 18 to Abraham as a possession in the presence of the Hittites, before all who went in at the gate of his city. 19 After this, Abraham buried Sarah his wife in the cave of the field of Machpelah east of Mamre (that is, Hebron) in the land of Canaan. 20 The field and the cave that is in it were made over to Abraham as property for a burying place by the Hittites. Footnotes  23:3 Hebrew sons of Heth; also verses 5, 7, 10, 16, 18, 20  23:6 Or a mighty prince  23:15 A shekel was about 2/5 ounce or 11 grams (ESV) Chronicles and Prophets: 1 Chronicles 28 1 Chronicles 28 (Listen) David's Charge to Israel 28 David assembled at Jerusalem all the officials of Israel, the officials of the tribes, the officers of the divisions that served the king, the commanders of thousands, the commanders of hundreds, the stewards of all the property and livestock of the king and his sons, together with the palace officials, the mighty men and all the seasoned warriors. 2 Then King David rose to his feet and said: “Hear me, my brothers and my people. I had it in my heart to build a house of rest for the ark of the covenant of the LORD and for the footstool of our God, and I made preparations for building. 3 But God said to me, ‘You may not build a house for my name, for you are a man of war and have shed blood.' 4 Yet the LORD God of Israel chose me from all my father's house to be king over Israel forever. For he chose Judah as leader, and in the house of Judah my father's house, and among my father's sons he took pleasure in me to make me king over all Israel. 5 And of all my sons (for the LORD has given me many sons) he has chosen Solomon my son to sit on the throne of the kingdom of the LORD over Israel. 6 He said to me, ‘It is Solomon your son who shall build my house and my courts, for I have chosen him to be my son, and I will be his father. 7 I will establish his kingdom forever if he continues strong in keeping my commandments and my rules, as he is today.' 8 Now therefore in the sight of all Israel, the assembly of the LORD, and in the hearing of our God, observe and seek out all the commandments of the LORD your God, that you may possess this good land and leave it for an inheritance to your children after you forever. David's Charge to Solomon 9 “And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever. 10 Be careful now, for the LORD has chosen you to build a house for the sanctuary; be strong and do it.” 11 Then David gave Solomon his son the plan of the vestibule of the temple,1 and of its houses, its treasuries, its upper rooms, and its inner chambers, and of the room for the mercy seat; 12 and the plan of all that he had in mind for the courts of the house of the LORD, all the surrounding chambers, the treasuries of the house of God, and the treasuries for dedicated gifts; 13 for the divisions of the priests and of the Levites, and all the work of the service in the house of the LORD; for all the vessels for the service in the house of the LORD, 14 the weight of gold for all golden vessels for each service, the weight of silver vessels for each service, 15 the weight of the golden lampstands and their lamps, the weight of gold for each lampstand and its lamps, the weight of silver for a lampstand and its lamps, according to the use of each lampstand in the service, 16 the weight of gold for each table for the showbread, the silver for the silver tables, 17 and pure gold for the forks, the basins and the cups; for the golden bowls and the weight of each; for the silver bowls and the weight of each; 18 for the altar of incense made of refined gold, and its weight; also his plan for the golden chariot of the cherubim that spread their wings and covered the ark of the covenant of the LORD. 19 “All this he made clear to me in writing from the hand of the LORD, all the work to be done according to the plan.” 20 Then David said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the LORD God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the LORD is finished. 21 And behold the divisions of the priests and the Levites for all the service of the house of God; and with you in all the work will be every willing man who has skill for any kind of service; also the officers and all the people will be wholly at your command.” Footnotes  28:11 Hebrew lacks of the temple (ESV) Gospels and Epistles: Luke 16–17:10 Luke 16–17:10 (Listen) The Parable of the Dishonest Manager 16 He also said to the disciples, “There was a rich man who had a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his possessions. 2 And he called him and said to him, ‘What is this that I hear about you? Turn in the account of your management, for you can no longer be manager.' 3 And the manager said to himself, ‘What shall I do, since my master is taking the management away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg. 4 I have decided what to do, so that when I am removed from management, people may receive me into their houses.' 5 So, summoning his master's debtors one by one, he said to the first, ‘How much do you owe my master?' 6 He said, ‘A hundred measures1 of oil.' He said to him, ‘Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.' 7 Then he said to another, ‘And how much do you owe?' He said, ‘A hundred measures2 of wheat.' He said to him, ‘Take your bill, and write eighty.' 8 The master commended the dishonest manager for his shrewdness. For the sons of this world3 are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than the sons of light. 9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth,4 so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings. 10 “One who is faithful in a very little is also faithful in much, and one who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much. 11 If then you have not been faithful in the unrighteous wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who will give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.” The Law and the Kingdom of God 14 The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, heard all these things, and they ridiculed him. 15 And he said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God. 16 “The Law and the Prophets were until John; since then the good news of the kingdom of God is preached, and everyone forces his way into it.5 17 But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one dot of the Law to become void. Divorce and Remarriage 18 “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery, and he who marries a woman divorced from her husband commits adultery. The Rich Man and Lazarus 19 “There was a rich man who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day. 20 And at his gate was laid a poor man named Lazarus, covered with sores, 21 who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man's table. Moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores. 22 The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's side.6 The rich man also died and was buried, 23 and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham far off and Lazarus at his side. 24 And he called out, ‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in anguish in this flame.' 25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, in order that those who would pass from here to you may not be able, and none may cross from there to us.' 27 And he said, ‘Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father's house—28 for I have five brothers—so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.' 29 But Abraham said, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.' 30 And he said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.' 31 He said to him, ‘If they do not hear Moses and the Prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.'” Temptations to Sin 17 And he said to his disciples, “Temptations to sin7 are sure to come, but woe to the one through whom they come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were cast into the sea than that he should cause one of these little ones to sin.8 3 Pay attention to yourselves! If your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him, 4 and if he sins against you seven times in the day, and turns to you seven times, saying, ‘I repent,' you must forgive him.” Increase Our Faith 5 The apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith!” 6 And the Lord said, “If you had faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,' and it would obey you. Unworthy Servants 7 “Will any one of you who has a servant9 plowing or keeping sheep say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come at once and recline at table'? 8 Will he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare supper for me, and dress properly,10 and serve me while I eat and drink, and afterward you will eat and drink'? 9 Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? 10 So you also, when you have done all that you were commanded, say, ‘We are unworthy servants;11 we have only done what was our duty.'” Footnotes  16:6 About 875 gallons or 3,200 liters  16:7 Between 1,000 and 1,200 bushels or 37,000 to 45,000 liters  16:8 Greek age  16:9 Greek mammon, a Semitic word for money or possessions; also verse 11; rendered money in verse 13  16:16 Or everyone is forcefully urged into it  16:22 Greek bosom; also verse 23  17:1 Greek Stumbling blocks  17:2 Greek stumble  17:7 Or bondservant; also verse 9  17:8 Greek gird yourself  17:10 Or bondservants (ESV)
3 Epiphany First Psalm: Psalm 45 Psalm 45 (Listen) Your Throne, O God, Is Forever To the choirmaster: according to Lilies. A Maskil1 of the Sons of Korah; a love song. 45 My heart overflows with a pleasing theme; I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe. 2 You are the most handsome of the sons of men; grace is poured upon your lips; therefore God has blessed you forever.3 Gird your sword on your thigh, O mighty one, in your splendor and majesty! 4 In your majesty ride out victoriously for the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness; let your right hand teach you awesome deeds!5 Your arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; the peoples fall under you. 6 Your throne, O God, is forever and ever. The scepter of your kingdom is a scepter of uprightness;7 you have loved righteousness and hated wickedness. Therefore God, your God, has anointed you with the oil of gladness beyond your companions;8 your robes are all fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia. From ivory palaces stringed instruments make you glad;9 daughters of kings are among your ladies of honor; at your right hand stands the queen in gold of Ophir. 10 Hear, O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear: forget your people and your father's house,11 and the king will desire your beauty. Since he is your lord, bow to him.12 The people2 of Tyre will seek your favor with gifts, the richest of the people.3 13 All glorious is the princess in her chamber, with robes interwoven with gold.14 In many-colored robes she is led to the king, with her virgin companions following behind her.15 With joy and gladness they are led along as they enter the palace of the king. 16 In place of your fathers shall be your sons; you will make them princes in all the earth.17 I will cause your name to be remembered in all generations; therefore nations will praise you forever and ever. Footnotes  45:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term  45:12 Hebrew daughter  45:12 Or The daughter of Tyre is here with gifts, the richest of people seek your favor (ESV) Second Psalm: Psalms 47–48 Psalms 47–48 (Listen) God Is King over All the Earth To the choirmaster. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. 47 Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy!2 For the LORD, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.3 He subdued peoples under us, and nations under our feet.4 He chose our heritage for us, the pride of Jacob whom he loves. Selah 5 God has gone up with a shout, the LORD with the sound of a trumpet.6 Sing praises to God, sing praises! Sing praises to our King, sing praises!7 For God is the King of all the earth; sing praises with a psalm!1 8 God reigns over the nations; God sits on his holy throne.9 The princes of the peoples gather as the people of the God of Abraham. For the shields of the earth belong to God; he is highly exalted! Zion, the City of Our God A Song. A Psalm of the Sons of Korah. 48 Great is the LORD and greatly to be praised in the city of our God! His holy mountain, 2 beautiful in elevation, is the joy of all the earth, Mount Zion, in the far north, the city of the great King.3 Within her citadels God has made himself known as a fortress. 4 For behold, the kings assembled; they came on together.5 As soon as they saw it, they were astounded; they were in panic; they took to flight.6 Trembling took hold of them there, anguish as of a woman in labor.7 By the east wind you shattered the ships of Tarshish.8 As we have heard, so have we seen in the city of the LORD of hosts, in the city of our God, which God will establish forever. Selah 9 We have thought on your steadfast love, O God, in the midst of your temple.10 As your name, O God, so your praise reaches to the ends of the earth. Your right hand is filled with righteousness.11 Let Mount Zion be glad! Let the daughters of Judah rejoice because of your judgments! 12 Walk about Zion, go around her, number her towers,13 consider well her ramparts, go through her citadels, that you may tell the next generation14 that this is God, our God forever and ever. He will guide us forever.2 Footnotes  47:7 Hebrew maskil  48:14 Septuagint; another reading is (compare Jerome, Syriac) He will guide us beyond death (ESV) Old Testament: Genesis 15:1–11; Genesis 15:17–21 Genesis 15:1–11 (Listen) God's Covenant with Abram 15 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: “Fear not, Abram, I am your shield; your reward shall be very great.” 2 But Abram said, “O Lord GOD, what will you give me, for I continue1 childless, and the heir of my house is Eliezer of Damascus?” 3 And Abram said, “Behold, you have given me no offspring, and a member of my household will be my heir.” 4 And behold, the word of the LORD came to him: “This man shall not be your heir; your very own son2 shall be your heir.” 5 And he brought him outside and said, “Look toward heaven, and number the stars, if you are able to number them.” Then he said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” 6 And he believed the LORD, and he counted it to him as righteousness. 7 And he said to him, “I am the LORD who brought you out from Ur of the Chaldeans to give you this land to possess.” 8 But he said, “O Lord GOD, how am I to know that I shall possess it?” 9 He said to him, “Bring me a heifer three years old, a female goat three years old, a ram three years old, a turtledove, and a young pigeon.” 10 And he brought him all these, cut them in half, and laid each half over against the other. But he did not cut the birds in half. 11 And when birds of prey came down on the carcasses, Abram drove them away. Footnotes  15:2 Or I shall die  15:4 Hebrew what will come out of your own loins (ESV) Genesis 15:17–21 (Listen) 17 When the sun had gone down and it was dark, behold, a smoking fire pot and a flaming torch passed between these pieces. 18 On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram, saying, “To your offspring I give1 this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the river Euphrates, 19 the land of the Kenites, the Kenizzites, the Kadmonites, 20 the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, 21 the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites and the Jebusites.” Footnotes  15:18 Or have given (ESV) New Testament: Hebrews 9:1–14 Hebrews 9:1–14 (Listen) The Earthly Holy Place 9 Now even the first covenant had regulations for worship and an earthly place of holiness. 2 For a tent1 was prepared, the first section, in which were the lampstand and the table and the bread of the Presence.2 It is called the Holy Place. 3 Behind the second curtain was a second section3 called the Most Holy Place, 4 having the golden altar of incense and the ark of the covenant covered on all sides with gold, in which was a golden urn holding the manna, and Aaron's staff that budded, and the tablets of the covenant. 5 Above it were the cherubim of glory overshadowing the mercy seat. Of these things we cannot now speak in detail. 6 These preparations having thus been made, the priests go regularly into the first section, performing their ritual duties, 7 but into the second only the high priest goes, and he but once a year, and not without taking blood, which he offers for himself and for the unintentional sins of the people. 8 By this the Holy Spirit indicates that the way into the holy places is not yet opened as long as the first section is still standing 9 (which is symbolic for the present age).4 According to this arrangement, gifts and sacrifices are offered that cannot perfect the conscience of the worshiper, 10 but deal only with food and drink and various washings, regulations for the body imposed until the time of reformation. Redemption Through the Blood of Christ 11 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come,5 then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation) 12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal redemption. 13 For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify6 for the purification of the flesh, 14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our7 conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

Now that day was the Sabbath. 10 So the Jews4 said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take up your bed.” 11 But he answered them, “The man who healed me, that man said to me, ‘Take up your bed, and walk.'” 12 They asked him, “Who is the man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk'?” 13 Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place. 14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.” 15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him. 16 And this was why the Jews were persecuting Jesus, because he was doing these things on the Sabbath. 17 But Jesus answered them, “My Father is working until now, and I am working.” Jesus Is Equal with God 18 This was why the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

Morning: Exodus 9–10 Exodus 9–10 (Listen) The Fifth Plague: Egyptian Livestock Die 9 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, “Let my people go, that they may serve me. 2 For if you refuse to let them go and still hold them, 3 behold, the hand of the LORD will fall with a very severe plague upon your livestock that are in the field, the horses, the donkeys, the camels, the herds, and the flocks. 4 But the LORD will make a distinction between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt, so that nothing of all that belongs to the people of Israel shall die.”'” 5 And the LORD set a time, saying, “Tomorrow the LORD will do this thing in the land.” 6 And the next day the LORD did this thing. All the livestock of the Egyptians died, but not one of the livestock of the people of Israel died. 7 And Pharaoh sent, and behold, not one of the livestock of Israel was dead. But the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go. The Sixth Plague: Boils 8 And the LORD said to Moses and Aaron, “Take handfuls of soot from the kiln, and let Moses throw them in the air in the sight of Pharaoh. 9 It shall become fine dust over all the land of Egypt, and become boils breaking out in sores on man and beast throughout all the land of Egypt.” 10 So they took soot from the kiln and stood before Pharaoh. And Moses threw it in the air, and it became boils breaking out in sores on man and beast. 11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils, for the boils came upon the magicians and upon all the Egyptians. 12 But the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he did not listen to them, as the LORD had spoken to Moses. The Seventh Plague: Hail 13 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Rise up early in the morning and present yourself before Pharaoh and say to him, ‘Thus says the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, “Let my people go, that they may serve me. 14 For this time I will send all my plagues on you yourself,1 and on your servants and your people, so that you may know that there is none like me in all the earth. 15 For by now I could have put out my hand and struck you and your people with pestilence, and you would have been cut off from the earth. 16 But for this purpose I have raised you up, to show you my power, so that my name may be proclaimed in all the earth. 17 You are still exalting yourself against my people and will not let them go. 18 Behold, about this time tomorrow I will cause very heavy hail to fall, such as never has been in Egypt from the day it was founded until now. 19 Now therefore send, get your livestock and all that you have in the field into safe shelter, for every man and beast that is in the field and is not brought home will die when the hail falls on them.”'” 20 Then whoever feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh hurried his slaves and his livestock into the houses, 21 but whoever did not pay attention to the word of the LORD left his slaves and his livestock in the field. 22 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, so that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, on man and beast and every plant of the field, in the land of Egypt.” 23 Then Moses stretched out his staff toward heaven, and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down to the earth. And the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. 24 There was hail and fire flashing continually in the midst of the hail, very heavy hail, such as had never been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. 25 The hail struck down everything that was in the field in all the land of Egypt, both man and beast. And the hail struck down every plant of the field and broke every tree of the field. 26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the people of Israel were, was there no hail. 27 Then Pharaoh sent and called Moses and Aaron and said to them, “This time I have sinned; the LORD is in the right, and I and my people are in the wrong. 28 Plead with the LORD, for there has been enough of God's thunder and hail. I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer.” 29 Moses said to him, “As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will stretch out my hands to the LORD. The thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, so that you may know that the earth is the LORD's. 30 But as for you and your servants, I know that you do not yet fear the LORD God.” 31 (The flax and the barley were struck down, for the barley was in the ear and the flax was in bud. 32 But the wheat and the emmer2 were not struck down, for they are late in coming up.) 33 So Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh and stretched out his hands to the LORD, and the thunder and the hail ceased, and the rain no longer poured upon the earth. 34 But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunder had ceased, he sinned yet again and hardened his heart, he and his servants. 35 So the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people of Israel go, just as the LORD had spoken through Moses. The Eighth Plague: Locusts 10 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants, that I may show these signs of mine among them, 2 and that you may tell in the hearing of your son and of your grandson how I have dealt harshly with the Egyptians and what signs I have done among them, that you may know that I am the LORD.” 3 So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh and said to him, “Thus says the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, ‘How long will you refuse to humble yourself before me? Let my people go, that they may serve me. 4 For if you refuse to let my people go, behold, tomorrow I will bring locusts into your country, 5 and they shall cover the face of the land, so that no one can see the land. And they shall eat what is left to you after the hail, and they shall eat every tree of yours that grows in the field, 6 and they shall fill your houses and the houses of all your servants and of all the Egyptians, as neither your fathers nor your grandfathers have seen, from the day they came on earth to this day.'” Then he turned and went out from Pharaoh. 7 Then Pharaoh's servants said to him, “How long shall this man be a snare to us? Let the men go, that they may serve the LORD their God. Do you not yet understand that Egypt is ruined?” 8 So Moses and Aaron were brought back to Pharaoh. And he said to them, “Go, serve the LORD your God. But which ones are to go?” 9 Moses said, “We will go with our young and our old. We will go with our sons and daughters and with our flocks and herds, for we must hold a feast to the LORD.” 10 But he said to them, “The LORD be with you, if ever I let you and your little ones go! Look, you have some evil purpose in mind.3 11 No! Go, the men among you, and serve the LORD, for that is what you are asking.” And they were driven out from Pharaoh's presence. 12 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, so that they may come upon the land of Egypt and eat every plant in the land, all that the hail has left.” 13 So Moses stretched out his staff over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day and all that night. When it was morning, the east wind had brought the locusts. 14 The locusts came up over all the land of Egypt and settled on the whole country of Egypt, such a dense swarm of locusts as had never been before, nor ever will be again. 15 They covered the face of the whole land, so that the land was darkened, and they ate all the plants in the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Not a green thing remained, neither tree nor plant of the field, through all the land of Egypt. 16 Then Pharaoh hastily called Moses and Aaron and said, “I have sinned against the LORD your God, and against you. 17 Now therefore, forgive my sin, please, only this once, and plead with the LORD your God only to remove this death from me.” 18 So he went out from Pharaoh and pleaded with the LORD. 19 And the LORD turned the wind into a very strong west wind, which lifted the locusts and drove them into the Red Sea. Not a single locust was left in all the country of Egypt. 20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he did not let the people of Israel go. The Ninth Plague: Darkness 21 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, a darkness to be felt.” 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was pitch darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. 23 They did not see one another, nor did anyone rise from his place for three days, but all the people of Israel had light where they lived. 24 Then Pharaoh called Moses and said, “Go, serve the LORD; your little ones also may go with you; only let your flocks and your herds remain behind.” 25 But Moses said, “You must also let us have sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice to the LORD our God. 26 Our livestock also must go with us; not a hoof shall be left behind, for we must take of them to serve the LORD our God, and we do not know with what we must serve the LORD until we arrive there.” 27 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let them go. 28 Then Pharaoh said to him, “Get away from me; take care never to see my face again, for on the day you see my face you shall die.” 29 Moses said, “As you say! I will not see your face again.” Footnotes  9:14 Hebrew on your heart  9:32 A type of wheat  10:10 Hebrew before your face (ESV) Evening: Matthew 18:1–20 Matthew 18:1–20 (Listen) Who Is the Greatest? 18 At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them 3 and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, 6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin,1 it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Temptations to Sin 7 “Woe to the world for temptations to sin!2 For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes! 8 And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell3 of fire. The Parable of the Lost Sheep 10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.4 12 What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray? 13 And if he finds it, truly, I say to you, he rejoices over it more than over the ninety-nine that never went astray. 14 So it is not the will of my5 Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. If Your Brother Sins Against You 15 “If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. 16 But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. 17 If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. 18 Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed6 in heaven. 19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” Footnotes  18:6 Greek causes . . . to stumble; also verses 8, 9  18:7 Greek stumbling blocks  18:9 Greek Gehenna  18:10 Some manuscripts add verse 11: For the Son of Man came to save the lost  18:14 Some manuscripts your  18:18 Or shall have been bound . . . shall have been loosed (ESV)

¿Por qué culmina el Octavario de la unidad de los cristianos con la fiesta de la conversión de san Pablo? Sin duda por la profunda enseñanza del Apóstol sobre la identidad entre Cristo y el cristiano, revelada en el camino de Damasco. Vivo yo, o más bien, no soy yo el que vive, es Cristo quien vive en mí. Busquemos nuestros caminos de Damasco –la Eucaristía, la oración, la penitencia– de modo que, como el Apóstol, logremos vivir en Cristo.
Sin duda el respeto, la admiración y los elogios son pieza clave para recorrer con éxito el camino del amor. Compartimos contigo en este Bonuscast esta bella reflexión que nos invita a amarnos para amar.¡Continua divirtiéndote con el Bonuscast del Podcast del Show de Raul Brindis!
(Antevíspera del Día Internacional del Pescador) Su pasión por la pesca surgió pescando desde pequeño con su padre, Fernando Viyella, quien fue una leyenda de la pesca dominicana. Desde los seis años Luis pescaba en las lagunas, y desde los diez años su padre lo llevaba al mar para que conociera cada uno de los diferentes tipos de pesca. «Eso era maravilloso para mí —recuerda Luis Viyella en una entrevista que le concede a la Revista Abordo después de haber batido otro récord de pesca en diciembre de 2018—. En el año 1973, a mis catorce años... [pesqué] mi primer marlín [o pez aguja] azul, que fue récord nacional dominicano en ese momento y pesó 423 libras, y [desde entonces] he pescado sostenidamente con una frecuencia bien alta.» Veinticuatro años después, impuso un nuevo récord al capturar otro pez aguja azul, sólo que esta vez el más grande del Caribe. «Fue en el tercer día de pesca del torneo del Náutico de San Juan... el 17 de agosto de 1997, cinco minutos antes de terminarse el torneo, que acababa a las tres de la tarde —relata Luis Viyella—. A las dos y cincuenta y cinco subió ese [pez aguja], que fue una oración contestada. Yo soy cristiano y un hombre de fe. Todo nos salió bien: el [anzuelo] fue sólido, y en media hora le pusimos el primer [gancho]. Media hora después logramos traerlo cerca de la lancha con la soga del primer [gancho volador], dominarlo y subirlo a bordo. ¡Fue extraordinario! »Recuerdo que estaba yo en equipo con mis amigos Eduardo Read y Armandito Armenteros. Eduardo ese día [capturó] un [pez aguja] azul de 713 libras también. Le faltó muy poquito para romper el récord de 721 libras que existía. El mío sí superó esa cifra. Lo extraordinario es que, en dos equipos, pescando en lanchas distintas el mismo día, [capturáramos] yo uno de 900 libras y Eduardo otro de 713. »... Yo había ido [detrás] de un [pez aguja] de ese tamaño a diversos destinos [donde] abundan [los] grandes, inclusive a Funchal, Madeira, y no había tenido suerte. Sin embargo, en ese torneo a bordo de la lancha de mi padre, la “Grace Tercera”, lo que menos pensaba era que iba a pescar ese marlín [o pez aguja] que me iba a salir ese día. Y... puedo decir que, realmente cuando uno quiere algo y se lo pide a Dios, eso viene en su tiempo, como Él mismo dice. Cuando uno menos lo espera, ahí llega; pero no se puede dejar de tener fe. Mi esposa es una mujer de gran fe, y me ha ayudado muchísimo en ese sentido», afirma Viyella.1 ¡Qué gran lección nos enseña Viyella como seguidor de Cristo y hombre de fe! Cuando tenemos un deseo inofensivo, basta con que se lo pidamos a Dios con fe y con toda confianza en lo que Jesucristo mismo enseñó: que si nosotros, que somos malos por naturaleza, sabemos dar cosas buenas a nuestros hijos por lo mucho que los amamos, ¡cuánto más nuestro Padre que está en el cielo nos dará cosas buenas a los que se las pidamos!2 Pero más vale que confiemos también en que Él es el único que sabe el tiempo oportuno para recibirlas de su mano.

Exodus 16–18 Exodus 16–18 (Listen) Bread from Heaven 16 They set out from Elim, and all the congregation of the people of Israel came to the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after they had departed from the land of Egypt. 2 And the whole congregation of the people of Israel grumbled against Moses and Aaron in the wilderness, 3 and the people of Israel said to them, “Would that we had died by the hand of the LORD in the land of Egypt, when we sat by the meat pots and ate bread to the full, for you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill this whole assembly with hunger.” 4 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Behold, I am about to rain bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not. 5 On the sixth day, when they prepare what they bring in, it will be twice as much as they gather daily.” 6 So Moses and Aaron said to all the people of Israel, “At evening you shall know that it was the LORD who brought you out of the land of Egypt, 7 and in the morning you shall see the glory of the LORD, because he has heard your grumbling against the LORD. For what are we, that you grumble against us?” 8 And Moses said, “When the LORD gives you in the evening meat to eat and in the morning bread to the full, because the LORD has heard your grumbling that you grumble against him—what are we? Your grumbling is not against us but against the LORD.” 9 Then Moses said to Aaron, “Say to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, ‘Come near before the LORD, for he has heard your grumbling.'” 10 And as soon as Aaron spoke to the whole congregation of the people of Israel, they looked toward the wilderness, and behold, the glory of the LORD appeared in the cloud. 11 And the LORD said to Moses, 12 “I have heard the grumbling of the people of Israel. Say to them, ‘At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. Then you shall know that I am the LORD your God.'” 13 In the evening quail came up and covered the camp, and in the morning dew lay around the camp. 14 And when the dew had gone up, there was on the face of the wilderness a fine, flake-like thing, fine as frost on the ground. 15 When the people of Israel saw it, they said to one another, “What is it?”1 For they did not know what it was. And Moses said to them, “It is the bread that the LORD has given you to eat. 16 This is what the LORD has commanded: ‘Gather of it, each one of you, as much as he can eat. You shall each take an omer,2 according to the number of the persons that each of you has in his tent.'” 17 And the people of Israel did so. They gathered, some more, some less. 18 But when they measured it with an omer, whoever gathered much had nothing left over, and whoever gathered little had no lack. Each of them gathered as much as he could eat. 19 And Moses said to them, “Let no one leave any of it over till the morning.” 20 But they did not listen to Moses. Some left part of it till the morning, and it bred worms and stank. And Moses was angry with them. 21 Morning by morning they gathered it, each as much as he could eat; but when the sun grew hot, it melted. 22 On the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers each. And when all the leaders of the congregation came and told Moses, 23 he said to them, “This is what the LORD has commanded: ‘Tomorrow is a day of solemn rest, a holy Sabbath to the LORD; bake what you will bake and boil what you will boil, and all that is left over lay aside to be kept till the morning.'” 24 So they laid it aside till the morning, as Moses commanded them, and it did not stink, and there were no worms in it. 25 Moses said, “Eat it today, for today is a Sabbath to the LORD; today you will not find it in the field. 26 Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, which is a Sabbath, there will be none.” 27 On the seventh day some of the people went out to gather, but they found none. 28 And the LORD said to Moses, “How long will you refuse to keep my commandments and my laws? 29 See! The LORD has given you the Sabbath; therefore on the sixth day he gives you bread for two days. Remain each of you in his place; let no one go out of his place on the seventh day.” 30 So the people rested on the seventh day. 31 Now the house of Israel called its name manna. It was like coriander seed, white, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey. 32 Moses said, “This is what the LORD has commanded: ‘Let an omer of it be kept throughout your generations, so that they may see the bread with which I fed you in the wilderness, when I brought you out of the land of Egypt.'” 33 And Moses said to Aaron, “Take a jar, and put an omer of manna in it, and place it before the LORD to be kept throughout your generations.” 34 As the LORD commanded Moses, so Aaron placed it before the testimony to be kept. 35 The people of Israel ate the manna forty years, till they came to a habitable land. They ate the manna till they came to the border of the land of Canaan. 36 (An omer is the tenth part of an ephah.)3 Water from the Rock 17 All the congregation of the people of Israel moved on from the wilderness of Sin by stages, according to the commandment of the LORD, and camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. 2 Therefore the people quarreled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.” And Moses said to them, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the LORD?” 3 But the people thirsted there for water, and the people grumbled against Moses and said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst?” 4 So Moses cried to the LORD, “What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me.” 5 And the LORD said to Moses, “Pass on before the people, taking with you some of the elders of Israel, and take in your hand the staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. 6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb, and you shall strike the rock, and water shall come out of it, and the people will drink.” And Moses did so, in the sight of the elders of Israel. 7 And he called the name of the place Massah4 and Meribah,5 because of the quarreling of the people of Israel, and because they tested the LORD by saying, “Is the LORD among us or not?” Israel Defeats Amalek 8 Then Amalek came and fought with Israel at Rephidim. 9 So Moses said to Joshua, “Choose for us men, and go out and fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the staff of God in my hand.” 10 So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought with Amalek, while Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed, and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses' hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13 And Joshua overwhelmed Amalek and his people with the sword. 14 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Write this as a memorial in a book and recite it in the ears of Joshua, that I will utterly blot out the memory of Amalek from under heaven.” 15 And Moses built an altar and called the name of it, The LORD Is My Banner, 16 saying, “A hand upon the throne6 of the LORD! The LORD will have war with Amalek from generation to generation.” Jethro's Advice 18 Jethro, the priest of Midian, Moses' father-in-law, heard of all that God had done for Moses and for Israel his people, how the LORD had brought Israel out of Egypt. 2 Now Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, had taken Zipporah, Moses' wife, after he had sent her home, 3 along with her two sons. The name of the one was Gershom (for he said, “I have been a sojourner7 in a foreign land”), 4 and the name of the other, Eliezer8 (for he said, “The God of my father was my help, and delivered me from the sword of Pharaoh”). 5 Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, came with his sons and his wife to Moses in the wilderness where he was encamped at the mountain of God. 6 And when he sent word to Moses, “I,9 your father-in-law Jethro, am coming to you with your wife and her two sons with her,” 7 Moses went out to meet his father-in-law and bowed down and kissed him. And they asked each other of their welfare and went into the tent. 8 Then Moses told his father-in-law all that the LORD had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians for Israel's sake, all the hardship that had come upon them in the way, and how the LORD had delivered them. 9 And Jethro rejoiced for all the good that the LORD had done to Israel, in that he had delivered them out of the hand of the Egyptians. 10 Jethro said, “Blessed be the LORD, who has delivered you out of the hand of the Egyptians and out of the hand of Pharaoh and has delivered the people from under the hand of the Egyptians. 11 Now I know that the LORD is greater than all gods, because in this affair they dealt arrogantly with the people.”10 12 And Jethro, Moses' father-in-law, brought a burnt offering and sacrifices to God; and Aaron came with all the elders of Israel to eat bread with Moses' father-in-law before God. 13 The next day Moses sat to judge the people, and the people stood around Moses from morning till evening. 14 When Moses' father-in-law saw all that he was doing for the people, he said, “What is this that you are doing for the people? Why do you sit alone, and all the people stand around you from morning till evening?” 15 And Moses said to his father-in-law, “Because the people come to me to inquire of God; 16 when they have a dispute, they come to me and I decide between one person and another, and I make them know the statutes of God and his laws.” 17 Moses' father-in-law said to him, “What you are doing is not good. 18 You and the people with you will certainly wear yourselves out, for the thing is too heavy for you. You are not able to do it alone. 19 Now obey my voice; I will give you advice, and God be with you! You shall represent the people before God and bring their cases to God, 20 and you shall warn them about the statutes and the laws, and make them know the way in which they must walk and what they must do. 21 Moreover, look for able men from all the people, men who fear God, who are trustworthy and hate a bribe, and place such men over the people as chiefs of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens. 22 And let them judge the people at all times. Every great matter they shall bring to you, but any small matter they shall decide themselves. So it will be easier for you, and they will bear the burden with you. 23 If you do this, God will direct you, you will be able to endure, and all this people also will go to their place in peace.” 24 So Moses listened to the voice of his father-in-law and did all that he had said. 25 Moses chose able men out of all Israel and made them heads over the people, chiefs of thousands, of hundreds, of fifties, and of tens. 26 And they judged the people at all times. Any hard case they brought to Moses, but any small matter they decided themselves. 27 Then Moses let his father-in-law depart, and he went away to his own country.

En este podcast Sara Tabares, graduada en Ciencias de la Actividad Física y del Deporte, máster en Fiosiología del ejercicio y experta en el impacto del entrenamiento de fuerza en los trastornos alimentarios, nos da las claves para que entrenar sea parte de nuestras vidas y nunca deje de serlo. "A la mayoría de mis pacientes no les gusta entrenar", nos dice en un momento dado de la entrevista. Sin embargo, muchos de ellos llevan muchos años entrenando con ella. ¿Cómo lo logra?"El secreto de un buen entrenamiento es que sea sostenible, porque así lo mantienes en el tiempo y logras todos sus beneficios". Para hacerlo sostenible nos da dos tips fundamentales: disfrutarlo y ser flexibles.Lo disfrutas cuando encuentras un ejercicio que te gusta (hay cientos de opciones, alguna habrá para cada uno de nosotros) o cuando lo adaptas a tus gustos (por ejemplo, haciéndolo con música o bailando salsa, como nos pone Sara de ejemplo). Lo haces flexible cuando no te marcas retos rígidos y, sobre todo, cuando te centras en el proceso y no en el resultado. Olvídate de eso de "consigue tal cosa en X tiempo" porque, como nos dice Sara, nunca funciona.En la entrevista Sara va desmontando muchos mitos que tenemos interiorizados y que solo sirven para alejarnos del entrenamiento bien entendido. Por ejemplo, que el entrenamiento es sufrimiento, que cuanto más intenso mejor, que podemos quemar grasa localizada o que las mujeres debemos tener cuidado con muscularnos como un hombre... Y nos ayuda a identificar, con ejemplos, el ejercicio problemático, que es el que se basa en la compensación, la compulsión y la rigidez.Esta entrevista puede motivarte mucho y ayudarte a entrenar con expectativas reales y saludables, lejos de entrenamientos mal entendidos, para conseguir, de verdad, todos los beneficios que el entrenamiento nos da.Lacajasaludable.es, de Única, nuestra mecenas de enero, tiene las mejores hortalizas, frutas de temporada y frutas subtropicales, como aguacate de origen nacional.

We need to teach to take sin seriously! Sin has been downplayed way too much to the point that we justify sin by how good we are. Do not be fooled by this ideology in our Christian Culture. Sin is a serious problem that keeps us from a Holy God. We are not naturally good, and we have a sin problem. --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/warrior-within-christian/support
Sundance Film Festival 2022 coverage continues for Rosa and Cat. In this episode, they review four films: "Mija" Dir. Isabel Castro Doris Muñoz desperately longed for better representation in the indie music she listened to as a teenager. At 23, she took matters into her own hands and began a career in music talent management, passionately advocating for rising Latinx artists. Her swift success transformed her into a pillar for a community of first- and second-generation Americans seeking collective acceptance and healing through song. When Doris receives news that forces her to reconsider working in music, she finds Jacks Haupt, an auspicious young singer eager to break out of her parent's home in Dallas, Texas. Beyond the sweet moments of joy, glitter, and hope, Doris and Jacks share the ever-present guilt of being the first American-born members of their undocumented families. For them, the pressure of financial success is heightened because it facilitates green card processing and family reunification. "Riotsville, USA" Dir. Sierra Pettengill A a poetic and furious reflection on the reaction of a nation's citizens and institutions to the rebellions of the late 1960s. This artful, riveting documentary consists entirely of archival footage that was shot by the United States military or appeared on broadcast television. "Nothing Compares" Dir. Kathryn Ferguson Since the beginning of her career, Sinéad O'Connor has used her powerful voice to challenge the narratives she was surrounded by while growing up in predominantly Roman Catholic Ireland. Despite her agency, depth, and perspective, O'Connor's unflinching refusal to conform means that she has often been patronized and unfairly dismissed as an attention-seeking pop star. "Fire of Love" Dir. Sara Dosa Katia and Maurice Krafft loved two things — each other and volcanoes. For two decades, the daring French volcanologist couple were seduced by the thrill and danger of this elemental love triangle. They roamed the planet, chasing eruptions and their aftermath, documenting their discoveries in stunning photographs and breathtaking film to share with an increasingly curious public in media appearances and lecture tours. Ultimately, Katia and Maurice would lose their lives during a 1991 volcanic explosion on Japan's Mount Unzen, but they would leave a legacy that would forever enrich our knowledge of the natural world.

En este mensaje tratamos el siguiente caso de una mujer que «descargó su conciencia» de manera anónima en nuestro sitio www.conciencia.net, autorizándonos a que la citáramos: «Tengo un hijo, y mi esposo tiene una niña de diez años. Ella sólo nos visita los fines de semana y los días feriados, pero cuando ella está, mi esposo nos deja a un lado a mí y a mi hijo. Incluso si salimos a un lugar, él siempre camina al lado de su hija. Yo le he expresado cómo me hace sentir, pero él no acepta que sea así. »Lastimosamente todos los fines de semana tenemos problemas con mi esposo a causa de que la niña lo manipula en muchas cosas y... de que él me dice que quiere que mi hijo cambie.... A pesar de todo, yo me hago cargo de cosas de su hija que no me corresponden.... Pero todas estas actitudes me están llenando de resentimiento.» Este es el consejo que le dio mi esposa: «Estimada amiga: »Nos entristece que su familia esté pasando dificultades. Sin embargo, aunque suene insensible decirlo, creemos que los problemas que usted tiene son la consecuencia natural de haberse casado con un hombre que tiene una hija. Usted decidió casarse con él sabiendo que él tenía esa hija. Y él decidió casarse con usted sabiendo que usted tenía un hijo. Como resultado, los dos tendrán muchos desacuerdos y malentendidos con relación a sus hijos respectivos.... »Siempre les aconsejamos a los padres y a las madres sin cónyuge que esperen hasta que sus hijos sean adultos antes de comenzar a buscar una pareja. Por supuesto, hay muchos que no están de acuerdo y piensan que somos poco realistas. Sin embargo, las estadísticas demuestran que hay una gran probabilidad de que fracasen los segundos matrimonios. Mientras esos segundos matrimonios están fracasando, los hijos se ven obligados a soportar las riñas y la angustia que está sufriendo alguno de sus padres. Muchas veces la obsesión del padre o de la madre con sus problemas matrimoniales es tal que no puede satisfacer las necesidades de los hijos.... »Nosotros creemos que un padre o una madre sin cónyuge tiene el compromiso moral de anteponer lo que necesitan sus hijos a sus propios intereses sentimentales. Pero cuando un padre o una madre se casa y se compromete con un nuevo cónyuge, con frecuencia ese nuevo compromiso con el cónyuge y el compromiso anterior con los hijos estarán en conflicto. Y no hay manera alguna que sea fácil de resolver ese conflicto. »Si usted quiere que este matrimonio perdure, tendrá que cambiar su actitud. Es evidente que su esposo quiere ser un buen padre para su hija. El amor que él le tiene a ella no compite con el que siente por usted. Él está con usted toda la semana, y sólo ve a su hija los fines de semana. ¿Por qué no lo deja caminar al lado de ella y prestarle atención? Ella crecerá y se irá de la casa, y entonces las oportunidades que él tendrá de estar con ella serán mucho más limitadas. En cambio, con él estará usted el resto de su vida, a no ser que permita que estos problemas los separen....» Con eso termina lo que recomienda Linda, mi esposa. El consejo completo, que por falta de espacio no pudimos incluir en esta edición, puede leerse con sólo ingresar en el sitio www.conciencia.net y pulsar la pestaña que dice: «Casos», y luego buscar el Caso 550.

La fecha en el hogar de ancianos fue un éxito. Los integrantes de la troupe de imitadores intentaron convencerlo de que los acompañara en su siguiente concierto, pero Julio se negó. Con uno era suficiente, por lo menos por el momento. Además, quería conocer Santiago. Así que se despidió de Fulgencio y sus amigos, y buscó un hotel en el centro de la ciudad. Consiguió una buena habitación en el barrio San Isidro. Allí dejó sus cosas, y salió a caminar. Quería visitar el teatro donde había tocado su abuelo Florentino. Según la postal, era un teatro inmenso, señorial, en un lugar céntrico. Se llamaba Anfiteatro O'Higgins. Julio puso la dirección en el mapa del móvil y caminó hasta allí; eran unas veinte cuadras, una buena oportunidad para conocer la zona. Sin embargo, cuando llegó al anfiteatro, Julio se encontró con una sorpresa. La fachada estaba más o menos intacta: el teatro existía. Pero ya no era un teatro. Ahora, esa fachada antigua y lujosa era la fachada de un cine. «Bueno, por lo menos puedo ver una película», pensó Julio. «Hace semanas que no veo una». Se acercó a la cartelera. Para su sorpresa, las cinco salas del cine estaban ocupadas por películas de superhéroes. Julio perdió el interés rápidamente. Decidió alejarse del cine sin rumbo, aprovechando el paseo frustrado para conocer un poco de la ciudad. Glossary inmenso, inmensa: huge. señorial: stately. fachada: façade. lujosa, lujoso: luxurious. cartelera: billboard. sin rumbo: aimlessly.
In 1877, American abolitionist (and escaped slave) Frederick Douglass met his former master, Thomas Auld. Douglass had previously written strong condemnations of Auld’s cruel treatment of his slaves. But when they met near the end of Auld’s life, Douglass forgave him. They shed tears, were reconciled, and parted as friends, according to Douglass’s autobiography. Douglass had become a Christian as a teenager, and clearly, he’d learned the power of God’s forgiveness in the face of suffering and injustice. As we see in today’s reading, Joseph, too, had learned to forgive despite all he’d unjustly suffered (vv. 19–21). In fact, we can say he’d learned to forgive because of all he’d unjustly suffered. That did not make what his brothers and the Potiphar couple had done any less wrong, but it helped Joseph to know that God had been in sovereign control with a greater purpose the entire time. We live in a fallen world that’s full of sin and suffering, but these things are not outside God’s rule. He’s never been taken by surprise and never has to resort to a plan B. This should strengthen our faith and give us hope. At the same time, it should not make us complacent or fatalistic. Sin, suffering, and injustice should deeply grieve us. We should practice and stand for biblical justice whenever there’s an opportunity. Even more, we can rejoice when suffering injustice for the sake of Christ—as Paul and Silas did, singing hymns in their Philippian prison cell (Acts 16:25). What can we learn from Joseph? In the words of the psalmist: “It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees” (Ps. 119:71). Or in Paul’s terms: “In all things God works for the good of those who love him” (Rom. 8:28). >> If you struggle with questions about suffering or injustice, we recommend an excellent book by two Moody professors: Between Pain and Grace: A Biblical Theology of Suffering, by Gerald Peterman and Andrew Schmutzer.

Isaiah 1:18-20 King James Version 18 Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. 19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: 20 But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
The US and Russia have held high-level talks over the tension in Ukraine, aimed at lowering the chances of war. The BBC's Diplomatic Correspondent, James Landale, and Steve Rosenberg, our Moscow Correspondent, join Adam to try and figure out what both sides are thinking. Armando Iannucci, creator of satires like ‘The Thick of It' and ‘The Death of Stalin', gives us his take on the political turbulence, at Westminster in particular, as well as his reasons for campaigning to protect the BBC's long-term funding. There were two big music stories today too: Adele's Las Vegas postponement and the death of the rocker Meat Loaf. Entertainment reporter Sinéad Garvan drops by to tell us more. First stop: we hear from a pretty recognisable voice on the government's plan to limit the number of “spam” tannoy announcements on English trains. Today's Newscast was made by Daniel Wittenberg with Ben Cooper and Georgia Coan. The studio director was Emma Crowe and the assistant editor was Sam Bonham.
Fueron largas horas de angustia y de pena para los padres, y de llanto desesperado para el pequeño. El niño, de sólo dos años de edad, había quedado encerrado en su habitación. Y era imposible abrir la puerta. Una simple tira de papel lo impedía. Todo esto ocurría en Machala, Ecuador. Una patrulla policial había cerrado un bar de mala fama. En su celo por clausurar el antro de vicio, también habían sellado una habitación contigua, que nada tenía que ver con el bar. En esa habitación estaba el pequeño. «Pude haber roto el papel con la mano y libertar a mi niño —les explicó el padre a los periodistas—, pero temía a la ley. Tuve que gastar diez horas de mi tiempo hasta conseguir orden de la policía para abrir la puerta.» Este caso pudiera parecerle gracioso al lector insensible. Pero no fue así para los padres que oían llorar a su hijo y veían pasar las horas con lentitud desesperante hasta obtener el permiso policial. La ley es la ley, y aunque esté equivocada, debe ser cumplida. Sin embargo, el caso de este niño preso por una tira de papel policial nos invita a reflexionar sobre muchas personas mayores que están presas por otras cosas. Algunas, por ejemplo, están presas por sus fobias y temores. Hay quienes no se atreven a salir a la calle en martes 13. Otros se horrorizan si rompen un espejo, o si ven pasar un entierro antes que nada en la mañana, o si vuelcan sal en la mesa. Hay personas en las que estas supersticiones infantiles se hacen tan fuertes que hasta desencadenan una histeria. A éstas las aprisionan recuerdos antiguos, o rencores que han acumulado en el corazón, o la incapacidad de perdonar, y viven presas y encadenadas. Otros permanecen atados al temor de una enfermedad mortal como el cáncer, y viven pendientes del menor síntoma irregular que sienten. Muchas veces esos síntomas anormales sólo son producto de los nervios. Otros, en fin, viven encadenados a sus prejuicios religiosos, sin disfrutar plenamente un solo día de la vida. Jesucristo dijo: «Si se mantienen fieles a mis enseñanzas... conocerán la verdad, y la verdad los hará libres» (Juan 8:31,32). Libres del temor a la enfermedad y a la muerte. Libres de odios y rencores paralizantes. Libres de supersticiones y prejuicios. Sólo Cristo ofrece libertad verdadera y gratuita. Hermano PabloUn Mensaje a la Concienciawww.conciencia.net
Sometimes no matter how great the teacher, we fail to learn the lesson. In today’s reading, God directed the prophet Jeremiah to use a family called the Rekabites as an object lesson (v. 13). Who were the Rekabites? During the reign of King Jehu, the Rekabites remained faithful to the Lord, opposed the worship of Baal, and supported Jehu’s reforms (2 Kings 10:15–23). Today’s reading in Jeremiah chapter 35 takes place more than 200 years later. Although the Rekabites had been forced to take refuge in Jerusalem due to the invading Babylonians, the descendants of the original group had remained loyal to their teachings (Jer. 35:6–11). When the prophet Jeremiah invited them to drink wine, he was asking them to violate a longstanding tradition (vv. 1–5). They refused. The prophet used their example of faithfulness to condemn the people of Judah (vv. 12-16). If this minority group could consistently obey a human command or tradition, why couldn’t the people of Judah keep God’s Law and repent of their idolatry? God had spoken to them time and time again through the prophets, calling them back to covenant obedience. The contrast was crystal clear: “[The Rekabites] have carried out the command their forefather gave them, but these people have not obeyed me” (v. 16). Failure to learn brings God’s judgment. It is true that God is patient and merciful. He gives many opportunities and “second chances.” But in the end, He will not be mocked. Failure to learn as a way of life is foolish and sinful. If people think God will never act, they’re tragically mistaken (2 Peter 3:3–7). Sin brings consequences and God’s judgment— in this case, conquest and exile by the Babylonians (Jer. 35:17). >> If only the people of Judah had heeded God’s words. If only. Then they would have received His blessings of peace and well being (Isa. 48:17–19). Don’t let “if only” be your story!
