Of what benefit will it profit a man if he could live and after he has spent his entire life time acquiring the whole landed properties and other achievements yet on his dying bed; he willed all his properties to an abstract person that he had only seen probably on a few occasions.
Many people go to school, yet after school you could find out that there is never a change that took place in their life and if to be compared with someone who has not even passed through the four corner of university walls, they are no different. A popular musician whom I respect so much; no other person but a legend in the making; Innocent 2Face Idibia. He wrote a song which said “to be civilize, you don't need to be educated” many people might argue this out but believe me it is a simple truth.
Let me share this brief touching story with you, so as to prove what 2Face Idibia said. There was a man, who was a professor and at the same time he served as the deputy vice chancellor at an institution. During his regime, so many people were kept on hold due to he refused to pass them for their doctorate degree.
Everything seems to him like as if he was god; who decides who crosses over and those not to cross. Of all his properties in different locations in different cities before his death, he willed his entire properties to an unknown man who he considers that has been praying for him when he was alive. Then, leaving his entire family to wonder in poverty, his poor children were filled with tears knowing that who they considered to be their dad did not care for them at all even till his final breath. This is bizarre, you ask!
Why would a learned man of his caliber act like an illiterate? The whole knowledge that he gathered was out of place because there was no different between him and a common man on the street without any fundamental experience or value of education. His death to many was a jubilation because they believed that he was an obstacle to their progress and graduation.
What on earth have he gained, if 80% of people you meet in his working place can not say of any good deeds about him, remember, the voice of people is the voice of God. So many people don't just see any reason why they should do good or stop their evil acts. God has given us the freedom to choose from good and bad but to many its a leverage to do whatever they feel like. What need or use is intelligent without any use, its like a leaking empty vessel which can not be used for anything. God bless us all.
