Life is not a context

11 December 2014, 11:24 Jibunor George Chuks

Early enough people understand this, better it will help one to focus and know the reason why he or she is existing. Many have failed to understand why they are living, why because they tend to copy the life style of others.

Many put themselves in a competition aiming to compare themselves in all things with those they have made up as their rivals. One could ask! Of what need is this comparison for? One man I know of, told the wife, Mr Okolo our neighbour had just bought a new car; then the wife could say hmmm.

Next, husband reply, don't mind him, he wants to show that he has money. Weeks later he went and bought a bigger car only just to prove that they are not on the same level with their neighbour.

So many people ends up killing themselves simply because they have not reached the level that others have reached. Hmmm, it may sound funny but this is happening in the society today. I don't want him to first me marry. They used two cars during their wedding, so we must use four after all we are not of the same level. To what is all this context for, equality or what! Absolutely nothing.

Live your life according to the way God has blessed you and stop playing competition with anyone. We are born differently and our destinies are different too.

God bless!
