The world as it is

11 February 2014, 15:55

Everything in the world is evolving.Many people see some things as new while others sees it as a normal routine.

The world is the same. Hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, floods, and other natural disasters has not changed people from the evil they perpetuate. Everyone acts deaf to all these signs.

 The plans God initially had for mankind was an unending joy and peace of mind; but with the fall of the first man, pain and death came upon man.

Many people have forgotten the saying, which goes like this; the wages of sin is death. Is it not better that we try our best to see how to avert or control the natural disasters which befalls us, than to go about using our own hands to create artificial disasters?

We cannot stop natural disasters but we can manage it.

 Instead, people are never tired of killing one another or plotting evil for others to fall, so that they can claim they have ascertained their wickedness. The world is not for sale and  will never be.

The clothes you wear or wore, cars you drive, houses that you built and all the money in the banks, landed properties that you have and the powers that you controls in different places, and the degrees in studies that you have in your academics, will never go anywhere with you at that moment of your last breath.

You were born without nothing, and nothing shall you equally return. That is just the simple truth about the world and that is “how the world is”. Understand it and you will have no reason to kill. God bless us all.
