The world can be a better place if everyone decides to play their role. The wickedness, selfishness and oppression in the world today is as a result of disregard for life and what it stands for. Self regard or respect is necessary but regarding yourself above another is derogatory.
We all came into the world with nothing and I'm yet to see anyone leave with something. I sometimes wonder why people are the way they are. Why do people bite more than they can chew? Why do some acquire so much but do so little to help or give back to mankind? Some act like their lives worth more and of a higher quality than the lives of others.
Everyone is important. Everyone is special. If we could choose our destination at birth everyone will will choose to be rich and no one will be poor. Assuming that was the case, who will be the king and the servant? Who will be the CEO and the security man?Who will be the prince and the pauper? It's obvious the differences about who we are, where we are from and what we have is nature's way of creating a balance and interaction among men.
Jesus said it's worthless for a man to gain the world and lose his soul. This is one question we must ask ourselves and candidly answer. If in God's mind, the whole world is not as valuable as one soul, then, it must mean man is far more valuable than how he sees himself. Why do men act like the world and it's beauty are far better than the souls that duel in it?
If you think you are worth something, then everyone around you is worth the same. The differences in status is not to oppress the less priviledged but an opportunity to share, appreciate and compliment our differences. Every soul before God is of great value. See yourself and others in this light. If you think your life is precious. Relate with others in the same regard.
Do to others what you want others to do you. Our hope for a better world rest on this simple principle. You can change the world. You can make a difference. Show love that can't be denied. Together we can make the world a better place. Love others like you love yourself. Start today!
