Our actions, rooted in faith, will reinforce the timeless truth that we reap what we sow.


In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to lose track of our belongings. This was precisely what happened to me when I inadvertently left my old yet fancy phone at a BPI ATM booth.

This is the P40 Pro+ PhoneThe realization didn’t dawn on me until an hour had passed, and by then, I had already searched the usual suspects—my car and various nooks and crannies around the house—to no avail. Even my smartwatch, which usually locates my phone, came up empty.

My brain was already computing the unplanned replacement cost, but I had this gut feeling I’d still get my phone back. This optimism stemmed from two deeply held beliefs:

  1. My practice of tithing, which I’ve always considered a protective shield over my possessions, and
  2. My efforts to return what is not mine— found items or rectifying accidental gains, like those extra burgers we once found in our drive-thru order.

Holding onto these principles, I decided to call my phone number. To my relief, a gentleman answered. After a brief exchange to confirm that he indeed had my phone, he informed me, “Sir, you can retrieve your phone at the MPD station. Someone who’s about to leave the country handed it in.

This experience was a testament to the kindness of strangers and the belief that what goes around, comes around. It also reminded me of a powerful verse that has always resonated with me.


In that moment, I felt a profound sense of gratitude, not just for the return of my phone, but for the reaffirmation of my faith in humanity and the principles I live by.
