Gain or Loss ?

aslan-and-lucyMereka menemukan Edmund dirawat Bu Berang-berang sedikit dibelakang garis pertempuran. Tubuhnya tertutup darah, mulutnya terbuka, dan wajahnya kehijauan.

 

“Cepat, Lucy,” kata Aslan.

 

Kemudian, hampir untuk pertama kalinya Lucy ingat botol cairan berharga yang diberikan kepadanya sebagai hadiah Natal. Tangannya gemetar begitu hebat sehingga dia nyaris tidak bias membuka tutupnya, tapi akhirnya dia berhasil dan menuangkan beberapa tetes isinya ke dalam mulut saudaranya.

 

“Ada yang lain yang juga terluka,” kata Aslan ketika Lucy masih menatap penuh harap kepada wajah pucat Edmund dan bertanya-tanya apakah cairan itu berhasil.

 

“Ya, aku tahu,” kata Lucy kesal. “Tunggu sebentar.”

 

“Putri Hawa,” kata Aslan dengan suara lebih tegas, “yang lain juga sedang sekarat. Apakah harus ada yang lain meninggal karena Edmund?”

 

(Cited from The Chronicles of Narnia : The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, by C.S.Lewis)

 

Share my precious ? Serve the others ? Hmmm…

 

OK, let say I am not a selfish person.. I do care my neighbours.. I am the big giver !!

 

Hey.. But at the same time you have to fully pay attention to your beloved one coz you’re gonna loose him / her forever……

 

Then, I’ll start to make an excuse.. C’mon.. This time only.. I’ll take a break just for a while, please.. It’s not about me ! It’s about the people I love ! I just want to help him / her. Don’t You understand ? I do it for others, not for myself ! Really ! Even I do not care about myself, I am not a selfish man ! I really can’t understand why You ask me to give it to others !! Why do You ask to serve the others during this condition? Stop disturbing my life !

 

But ask yourself first….

 

I have the things which are belong to me

or

I am just borrowed those things that actually belong to HIM ?

 

 

I will loose my precious

or

I will get a special opportunity to learn sharing HIS grace to others ?

 

 

It’s really about my beloved one loosing something he / she need

or

It’s just about me afraid of loosing him / her?

 

 

I willingly get nothing but just see my beloved one is OK

or

I willingly get nothing but just dedicate my best to HIM?

 

 

I know the best for my beloved one

or

HE knows the best for all of HIS beloved?

 

 

Remember Elijah, who poured the water during the battle with false prophet in Mount Carmel ?

 

Just like Ko Billy said that it is not just to call attention to the super power of his God on fire miracle afterwards. The meaning is higher than that. Water is the most precious thing during that heavy drought period, but he dedicated it to God.

 

The people around him might shout to him, “How dare you throw away the most precious things! People really need the water, and you just threw it away in a large amount? It’s much better should you give it to the thirsty ones! Insane! Seriously ??? Seriously !!!!”

 

But..

 

He knows how high God’s demand is..

He understands his position and God’s position..

He knows what a true giving is..

He understands what kind of tribute that he has to dedicate to God..

He fully understands that God will fulfil their need adequately in His point of view..

 

My Lord always gives the best for me, even The Most Precious One to me, what is my response?

 

Let’s see her decision after a hard consideration….

 

“Maafkan aku, Aslan,” kata Lucy, bangkit dan pergi bersama singa itu.

 

…….

 

Ketika akhirnya bebas untuk kembali kepada Edmund, Lucy melihat kakaknya berdiri sendiri dan bukan saja sembuh dari luka-lukanya, tapi juga tampak jauh lebih baik daripada lama sebelumnya.

 

 

Yes, I always know the answer, as guessed. But remember, it is not as simple as I thought to make it real!

 dedication-posters

Perhaps it may not a happy ending story, like this story, but it does not matter, coz you’ve done your part well. You’ve dedicated your best to God, coz He deserved receive the best. 

 

So,

It’s not about got something or looses something…

It’s about self denial,

It’s about sharing,

It’s about giving,

It’s about dedication,

It’s about tribute….

  1. hoho.. i was surprised when symphony no.5 suddenly played kkkk… good choice of songs : )
    well, something for sure, i gain a lot since i was here hahahah : P
    nice sharing ^^ i miss this kinda thought : ( but, sometimes to see something as a gain, it take the loss experience *huff* -mulai ikutan dalem hihi-

    once more, nice sharing : )

  2. @ Tata : Ha..ha.. Thanks.. Emberrr.. hitungan kita khan selalu profit & loss.. Kekekekek..

  3. Hai Hai AW!!
    Mau ikutan ngerecokin blog nya AW ahhh 😛 qiqiqi
    Dari sekian banyak yg lo tulis, kayanya cuma ini yg g ngerti (hahaha peace ya W, secara g “so anak ekonomi sekali” yg sangat mementingkan gain or loss, makanya kaga ngantri kalo disuru ngobrol soal partikel dan gelombang hahahaha)

    Ngobrol2 soal big giver, sharing and true giving, (tenny’s sotoy mode ON) someone said to me oneday, kalo kita ga akan pernah jadi miskin (dan belum pernah kejadian juga kan dlm sejarah umat manusia – lebay haha – kalo ada org yg bangkrut gara2 sering ngasih ma orang) dengan memberikan or sharing (anything ya bentuknya..) sama org lain.. malah bakal jadi kaya, at least kaya hati, karena pasti ad perasaan senang yang bakal muncul kalo abis bantuin or nolong or ngasih something sama org lain ^^

    G stuju bgt ma yang lo tulis W, “I am just borrowed those things that actually belong to HIM “.. g jd inget lagu Hati Sebagai Hamba (harusnya u know this song more than me hehe).. intinya, kita ga bawa apa2 ke dunia ini, makanya kita ga boleh ragu2 untuk selalu giving and sharing ma org lain 😀 and 1 yg selalu g percaya, kalo kebaikan itu pasti akan muter and balik lagi ke kita, wlaupun bukan dr org yg sama hehe yaaa, kalo kata org dulu mah, kalo dah rejekinya, pasti akan Tuhan kasih lagi hehehe

    Yasud, segitu dulu comment ga pentingnya hahaha ntar g recokin lagi besok2.. have a nice holiday W!
