– This proverb has a much deeper meaning than a simple warning against laziness. You see, nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa really means, “You can do whatever you want with your life, and as long as you work hard, God will bless you.” In other words, this saying is in fact a justification to pursue one’s ambitions, and with no consideration whatsoever of what God actually wants. You want to be rich? Want to have your own mansion? Your own private jet? Your own small island? Okay! Then work hard, because nasa Diyos ang awa, nasa tao ang gawa.
