Entitled Are We?
Are you entitled?
Am I, really?
Is entitlement a demand or gifts given by the universe, to all?
Does the Universe give gifts?
Are you sure?
I'm not convinced we are entitled, but we are guests on a place given by God, that we've claimed ownership, because we feel entitled. I think God chuckles at our unbelievable ignorance.
For example, consider oxygen; air. Are we entitled, or is it found here on Earth?
If it is found pure and purely clean, are we entitled to always have it this way? Or, are physical laws giving or taking, reaping and sewing, yinnig or yanging properties in place? In my opinion, this is our since of entitlements, but in reality, we are Pilgrims who are merely passing through a dimension called life, And air, water and food sources are given freely; if ~ physical laws are observed and practiced. The laws of God are the universal laws of all physics known and unknown by mankind.
For another example, Biblical, what ever one takes care of or casts in their life, then, one will see their "bread come back on the waters" (after time) as written or similar parables which explain taking care of circumstances. Such as a home, a car, a pet, a child, a mother, a job, a life, and a thing, person, or animal which is cherished; will become a flower of cultivation and care, in time.
So my big question? Are we entitled to insurance, government care, or anything including air? Or, are these our demands because we think we are entitled, but in reality, we are entitled to nothing, but faith in something, good or bad? So, in essence, we make or create our world...
And, I ask you again, are we entitled?
Are you certain?
I don't think we are entitled to anything or physical property on Earth.
To sum my beliefs up: I think we are only entitled to what we care for and what we believe God for and not what we demand of men or governments. This makes no one entitled but only humbly at the mercy of our own destruction and of a benevolent God who is able to care for us even without government health care. But, belief is required and we are given the faith and no one is entitled but is given freely.

You ask some heavy questions that I think everyone should examine and come to a unique conclusion. Just to offer some tiny red ink--I think your message might be even more powerful if you tighten it up some. For example you say pure and then purely clean. In my opinion I think you only need to say pure. But if there is something more or different about purely clean then I think it would help the reader if you want into more details. I saw your name as I was perusing some stories. I read the challenges more than other areas and I miss seeing your stories in the challenge. You are quite creative. :)
