We are too busy!

26 February 2015, 12:10 Jibunor George Chuks

World remains, material things that we look after remains even when we are all gone. Little or not at all do we show concern or care to one another.

This is why as of today, we records so many problems with no idea from the people on how to tackle these problems. Humans put things that matters aside and looks up to the things that don't really mean a big deal. Insurgency in the country today is what some persons created in other to favor themselves without checking what might be the disadvantages of this act! All we look after is advantage with locked mindset that there won't be any disadvantage.

I had one of my friend saying, the problem we face today in my family is because we are too busy for one another. Things that matter we don't consider it because we are all after materialistic things. He said, I prefer my people asking, John how are you today? than thinking that money is everything, but no, they are always busy.

What are we always busy looking for? We have all forgotten that we met all these material things and so, we equally leave them at the last breath. Reach out to people by asking ''how are you'' its enough to win your family or friends out there to know that yes, we care for each other.

When you are too busy for people around you, is it when they are inside the grave that they will know that you care?

God bless!
