We often confuse anger with hate and deep anger for deep hatred. Sometimes, we become frustrated with the things going on in our lives and that too, can cause us to feel hatred. We live in a world where encouragement falls short of the type of inspiration we need. People encourage us in ways we don't need enouragement and the hopes we do need continues to be deprived. This is all due to the world's incapability to prioritize what we need to be above the things we want and this is what causes people to become corrupt and corruption gives birth to many tiny factors that lead to becoming big problems.
I cannot find anyone in this world who lacks a vice. We all have flaws, habits and ways that fail to produce good returns for our spiritual, mental and emotional health. Our physical aspects actually rely on the strength of these base foundations.. and when we lack the strength, we can see it when the good we created begins to crumble.
I'd like to believe that good and evil can be clearly defined to be as simple as either black or white and that not everything is as complicated as confusion makes it out to be. But truly, it is complicated, not because we are confused of our own actions but because of the great difficulty to locate the origins of these behaviors, as it is deeply rooted in the seemingly untraceable pattern called the Domino Effect.
It is easy to pass on the blame of our actions and people tend to justify their own guilt because it is stemmed from the fault of another. While it may be true for most people that their deeds were unintentional and committed in ignorance, there is still that personal sense of responsibility to learn from our own mistakes and wrongs.
However, there are just too many people who dominate more in ignorance than in Wisdom, which makes the search for good influence or guide much more difficult. It is because of the people who influence corruption more so than hope, the world remains hindered and left behind in advancement and improvement. But the solution to these problems is not to eradicate or destroy these type of people, nor to condemn them by withholding the Hope that is meant for everyone, regardless of their status, nation, culture or even religion. The practices of mankind can be improved through proper education and through better prioritizing.. but always the first that is given, is Hope, which is through good example.
People cannot dream without a vision.. they cannot build the strength to achieve something unless they are made certain that it is possible to succeed it. Trying to keep individuals bound and limited by making them believe there is no hope for them because their thought and behavior has gone far out of reach from improvement, is the same thing as chaining an animal in an eternal cage for doing what they thought it was in their nature to do.
Furthermore, just because we do not understand the battles a man goes through internally, doesn't make them hopeless. Their internal struggles means there is something very good within them that's worth fighting for; and if they see it worthy enough to cause them to battle within themselves, then, should we not aide them with encouragement??.. yet, the world lacks the knowledge and the wisdom to do this, for the most part.
Anyone who does not go to war within themselves are those who have hardly seen Hope and have become trapped in their own thoughts and ways. Barbarians are those who have become complacent in ignorance and careless behavior.. they seek no improvement, mostly because they do not know of a better way to live. Sometimes, the hunger for greed and power can blind them from seeing solutions different than their own' (which are mostly destructive and/or harmful). And in the end, some people have learned to cope with the choices others have made as far as the way they've chosen to live and that's not healthy either.
But when does this Effect end?? How can it be changed?? Influence is often played like a pinball game.. it creates domino effect behaviors that are often passed down to the third and fourth generation... And this is a serious problem..
People often tell each other not to make a mountain out of a molehill.. but it's the many molehills that build up to become one great mountain and that's how factors work. Factors are fragments of deeds that contribute to creating at least one large problem. The great issues we are currently experiencing in the world is the result of the many tiny factors that have helped to contribute to it but no one wants to percieve it as a threat because they think it's only a minor problem. Minor problems result in major disasters when it is left unaddressed.. that's how corruption works to try to destroy even the seemingly indestructable.
People who cannot cope with their own faults, cannot cope with other's mistakes.. people who've become trapped in certain habits unintentionally draws others into a similar trap. People who are angry confuse anger with hatred and hatred causes the loss of hope. There are so many examples of how one tiny factor can lead to another and in the end, it becomes a worldly problem.
Perfect example of seemingly harmless factors that have impacted and created one large problem, which is our country's debt: Welfare, planned parenthood, medicare, the government bailout, illegal immigrants, businesses that help to bring money into the country are now outsourcing overseas due to heavy tax raises, politicians' and other government employees' pay raises and pensions, government misuse of spending (such as spending $50 per lightbulb for the white house or throwing a superbowl party).. all this is caused by people's failure to know how to prioritize the importance of separating needs from wants, which causes corruption to give birth to fragments of problems called Factors that help to create a huge problem in the end. This is how a domino effect pattern works.. because the cause for the government programs, outsourcing of businesses and illegal immigrants, for example, are also rooted by other causes and so on and so forth. Factors build on factors and that is how sin begets sin and so, subliminally, creates downfall, destruction and poverty. So, again, it's quite difficult to find the root of the domino effect causes, as one factor becomes lost in another and this is what the prophets mean when they claim 'people become lost in their sins'. People build reasons on top of other reasons and all that's seen are a bunch of excuses but no encouragment is offered to help change this effect around for the better, only more ways to add to the problems.
I don't know what it is that make people believe that it's not the little things that result a deeply problematic mountain, but it most certainly is NOT caused by just one individual's sense of poor choices and actions, even though the world finds it easier to sum the scapegoat to be just one or a few individuals. And they never do want to see their role in helping to contribute to the birth of bigger factors that lead to an even bigger set of factors that creates one big mountain of issues and when they refuse to see their part in which they've played, it becomes even more difficult to find solutions.
How can anyone change the world without first changing themselves?? How can sluggish people rely on others to constantly do the work of improving the world when these slugs make up the factors in the world that also need to improve??
If everyone lived up to the Portion they were freely given from God, then wouldn't we be able to advance exceedingly great and make this planet a desireable Paradise for all other beings in the universe?? But it is not, as we are constantly opening ourselves for others to interfere and show us ways that we should have already mastered by now since the ancient days and we are constantly overusing and abusing the resources that are not destined to last forever. Most people do not consider the welfare of their fellow man in their current generation, which is why they create disasters for the next to try to clean up... But the next generation commences to do the same thing and this pattern creates prophetic visions that are just too dangerous to ignore. So, what can we do, other than to start by changing the way we influence and inspire people to improve for the better?? Sometimes, it is easier to be like Jonah, who likes to sit back and see people get what he believed they deserved.. and sometimes, like Ninevah, people can surprise you when they are shown a better way.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
