Being successful in Hong Kong is no easy feat. The once small fishing village went through a period of extreme modernisation thanks to British colonialism, and has since become one of the most competitive cities in the world. With a ruthless work ethic and limited space, only the most determined people make it to the top. But achieving success in Hong Kong is not all financial. Success is relative, and must be defined by your own personal parameters. Those that remain faithful to the teachings of Christ and original Christianity find it easier in life to achieve their own personal success in Hong Kong, and feel both happiness and accomplishment with what they have done.
Nowadays, it has become far more common for people to associate happiness and success in Hong Kong with money and fame. But neither of these will be able to give you personality, love or lasting success in Hong Kong. God teaches us this exact lesson. When King Solomon requested God for wisdom, God said: “Because you have asked this thing, and have not asked long life for yourself, nor have asked riches for yourself…I have done according to your words…and I have also given you have you have not asked”, 1 Kings 3:11-14.
If we translate this lesson into achieving success in Hong Kong, it becomes clear that one should not simply just wish for riches and fame. While those will give you short-term success in Hong Kong, it will become obvious that true success is achieved only through having a happy and fulfilling life under the guidance of original Christianity.
True success comes from leading a gratifying life fulfilling the teachings of Jesus Christ. King Solomon left us this important lesson: “Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all”, Ecclesiastes 12:13. At Tomorrow’s World HK, we offer this guidance through bible study, and want everyone to be as successful as they can in modern day Hong Kong.
Are you looking for how to promote happiness in Hong Kong? Tomorrow’s world has the answer. Our goal here encompasses many different aspects. Firstly, we aim to answer all of life’s most important questions. Secondly, we aim to give reason and understanding to what makes a productive and moral society in Hong Kong rich with happiness.
As one of the world’s leading financial hubs, working in Hong Kong can at times be extremely stressful and intense. However, having a solid backdrop of original Christianity provides an extraordinary level of happiness here in Hong Kong. Studies have shown that, unfortunately, Hong Kong ranks quite low on international happiness comparisons. The Hong Kong Free Press reported that in 2018, Hong Kong fell down to the 76th spot in the UN happiness report, dubbing it a “city of sadness”. But this begs the question: what proportion of those unhappy people in Hong Kong are followers of original Christianity?
It has been shown that people who follow a religion are significantly happier than those who don’t. The Independent released an article in February 2019 that surveyed people in the US based on their religious beliefs, and found that people who are actively religious are happier in general. It would be fair to say that believers of original Christianity in Hong Kong have a marked advantage when it comes to their happiness.
At Tomorrow’s World HK, we promote a keen understanding of the bible, and through it find answers to many of life’s important questions. If you know someone who is unhappy in Hong Kong, it could be because they aren’t engaging in enough religious activity. Happiness in a crowded city like Hong Kong has a lot to do with your faith. Be sure to contact us if you would like to learn more about the teachings of original Christianity in Hong Kong today!
A never-ending war is underway, and you are at the very center of the battle. In fact, it is taking place beneath your own skin.
Microscopic pathogens—such as deadly bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites—may be so small they cannot be seen, but they are everywhere. And what stands between you and these threats, to keep you alive and healthy? One of the great marvels of God’s design: the human immune system.
A short article such as this could never convey the wondrous whole of our immune system in all its glory, and it would be a complicated tale to tell. However, even a passing glance can serve to remind us that we are, indeed, “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14). Let’s take that glance.
There are virtual miracles that surround us in God’s created world—wonders we take for granted too easily. In the life cycles of even the lowliest of creatures, the One who is their Creator and ours has placed lessons and examples for us to consider.
It is easy to think of the well-known transformation of caterpillar to butterfly and fail to consider the everyday miracle it represents. It is truly one of the great wonders of the living world.
Let’s take some time to muse on the caterpillar and the butterfly, nature’s masters of metamorphosis, and then let’s consider just one important lesson it represents for us.
Studies show younger generations increasingly consider the elderly to be a “burden on society.” Is that true? What does God’s word reveal?
Most people accept average life expectancy as a general gauge of a country’s overall health. In most parts of the ancient world, life was short—especially in cities. Average life expectancy in the Roman Empire was around 25 years. Flash forward to the 20th century, where improvements in sanitation, medicine, and nutrition increased average life expectancy to 50 years in many developed nations—like Canada. By 2011, that number had reached 81 (“Life Expectancy,” conferenceboard.ca).
Today in Canada, the number of people 65 years old and over exceeds those 14 years old and younger. According to the National Post, “StatCan said the latest figures were driven by a trend that took root in 2011 and has continued to accelerate—the aging of the baby boomers… Baby boomers now account for 30 per cent of the senior demographic, the agency said” (McQuigge, Michelle, “Canadian seniors outnumber children for the first time in recorded history, StatsCan says,” NationalPost.com, September 29, 2015).
The ever-growing baby boomer population strains Canada’s pension support system. The eligibility age for Old Age Security (OAS) and the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is 65 years, just a year younger than the average lifespan in Canada when the plan was first introduced. Since then, the average lifespan has increased by almost 20 years.
One of the leading causes of death among teenagers is suicide. The Centers for Disease Control reports that it is the third-leading cause of death in the United States for young people between the ages of 15 and 24. Only accidents and homicides account for more deaths for this age group. Even more alarming is the fact that suicide is the fourth-leading cause of death for children between 10 and 14 years old, according to teensuicidestastics.com.
Several factors may influence a teenager’s decision to take his or her life, including parental divorce, substance abuse, feelings of worthlessness, rejection by friends or peers, violence in the home, inability to find success at school, and—most commonly—depression. Many young people feel as though they are trapped in a life that they cannot handle and feel hopeless and anxious. Sadly, in some cases, young people feel that suicide is the only way to escape from these problems.
Although life can certainly be challenging, and you may find yourself in one of the situations mentioned above, suicide is not the answer.
