As I was getting frustrated this week, I remembered that book by Steinbeck who also wrote “The Grapes of Wrath”. He is such a good writer and from California at that! Anyway, the Scriptures teaches us humility, understanding compassion, faith, humility, being less self absorbed, etc. being a bigger person, a man. The more that we are made aware of this, the more I see people struggling to be recognized, to be better than the next person, in doing makes a disruptive existence.
Nope, I am not trying to be the big one here, but I am naturally shy, except for the people I am comfortable with, that it makes me cringe when the self persists. It seems that wherever people are, whatever the purpose or the objective is, a discourse arise, because of that id. It is sad, because we are giving in to the temptation of the devil.
On another note, I was talking to a friend, was it last weekend, she expressed surprise that she was invited and even have a role in another friend’s wedding. I said, but you’re friends and it is therefore expected. I said, seriously, because I am so comfortable in my friendship with this couple, if they didn’t invite me, I will show up, I may not show up in the reception or eat, because I am prideful (I know it is a sin) but I will be in church, I may even ask, why I was not invited and shame them no end. ha ha..
Somewhere in this post, there is a point! I guess the premium we put in ourselves need to be changed. It is ridiculous, it is like using high faluting words, making a statement pointless and nonsensical to make a person sound educated. It is like an uncouth person, a pedestrian dressed in gold. I can go on and on, but it might offend your sensitivies, so I will just be quiet about it.
Dignity, importance is not measured by what a person does but what he does with his life.
