Bo Sanchez' asks, "Why so much God and Poverty?"

I read a blog from fellow Filipino Bo Sanchez. He asks about the relationship between poverty and God.

It's a worthwhile read that will surely make you think, wonder and hopefully act. Nice to know that many of my fellowmen are thinking and are as concerned as I am.

Here's an excerpt:

Last week, I had lunch with a wealthy foreigner.

How wealthy? He was earning two million dollars a month. (I’m not kidding.) He was in the Philippines visiting our smaller islands.

“So how did you like your visit?” I asked him.

“I loved it,” he said, “I have never met a more polite, more courteous, nicer people than the Filipinos.”

“Thank you,” I beamed.

But then he frowned. “Bo, I also noticed how religious Filipinos are. I saw the tricycles with signs, saying, “God loves you” and “John 3:16”. There is so much God in your country. And yet there is so much poverty.”

Ouch.

That hurt because it’s so true.

Read his blog and the responses.

Hi, Saw that you mentioned "Bo

Sanchez" if so - you

might be interested to reserve

your Nov 28-29, 2009 for a chance

to hear him live/see him/have

your books signed at the Araneta

Coliseum for the once in a

lifetime event "Dream Big, Win

Big".

It's a big learning event about

"dreaming big in your life and

using your core gifts to follow

your dream". Yes it's a catholic

event, there's mass and worship

but there's also a lot of singing

and dancing and comedy as well as

the huge message on big dreams.

See you or your friends there!

Thanks. Ana.
