Jungle Rules Of Life
How many people truly care about you, like genuinely are selfless with you, are you very sure that there are no ulterior motives to their kind gesture, cause I believe nobody likes any form of disturbance or pestering. You and I would like to have our way everytime, the reason for our sanity and kind nature are basically because of the love of God or the consequences of disobeying the law of the society. That friendly neighbor doesn't mind adding your money to his cause he feels like he needs it more, or just need to be better than you, and you likewise feel the same, deep down life is a jungle.
I wonder why people get so down on betrayal, like they thought that person would not take advantage of them when they saw the opportunity, we need to start understanding that some people don't have this obedience that a few of us have, they really don't care and are not bothered, for someone like you who is good in nature, you either love God so well to keep his commandments which in turn would offer a good living standard, or you're trying to not disobey the law which also was made to adjust our living standards rightly, but some people dont care, they don't fear God and don't care about the laws, or they don't care about either of them.
So how do you expect them to be like you, some individuals view life as a jungle and are ready to devour you If you lay as a prey for them. The government preys on the innocent masses, the employers preys on the employees, the rich continues to extort from the poor, even you that has just been giving a high position, you've already start cutting and eating off the ignorance of the people under you, this is the regular order of the day, you would even appear as a fool when you choose not to partake, it's hard to stay good in this jungle world, the bad ones are living the best lives, you would like to join.
Its enticing isn't it, if only it were a good way to make a living then everyone would love to do it, we are only scared, some people aren't, the pay is good and they can do whatever they like whenever they like and you'll just hope to be like them, enticing really. Imagine going to the club and you're not recognized or respected, how do you feel, actually you know what can make you recognized, it's easily spelt out but would you do it is the problem, are you financially capable to spend that huge amount in one night and get treated like a king, yet you wish you can be treated as a king, so yes it's very enticing, but your fear for God and law wouldn't let you.
When the bible says fear the lord you God, that's God telling us to fear him, most people wouldn't understand, he is our father and I don't fear my earthly father so we would have prefer that he told us to love him rather than fear him, well if we truly know him then fearing him wouldn't be an issue to start with, imagine being alone in the middle of an ocean so big, no land visible with huge tides and waves, I bet you would die of fear, but this frightening sight to behold was made by him easily, he makes the full earth his foot stool, lets not go to the intimidating image of the Angel's and the scary elders around his throne, hey he wouldn't have to tell you to fear him, you would be scared effortlessly, however he is for us, our creator and father so that calms us.
So this fear of God is a consolation to every good person out there thinking if there is a gain to the life they are living, I bet to tell you that they are making the best decisions of their lives. Life is as a jungle yet we shouldn't conform to living it as animals, no care for emotions, anybody that crooses your path you're immediately thinking of how to take advantage, chase to the kill. The greed of a human is never satisfied, we are constantly looking for more, you'll need more than your words to stop such nature, you'll need the help of the fear of God or the fear of nature, or preferably the both.
Some societies have gone so bad that they don't fear the law anymore, maybe a few of them still have the fear of God but they don't care what anyone would do to them, so you see crimes and bad schemes happening on a daily basis and unfortunately the police and other law enforcing bodies can't do anything about it and so they continue to spread and more and more people keep switching to the bad side of the society as apparently there is money there as well as freedom from any punishment, they neglect the fear of God causes it appears God won't speak to them about it, little are we aware God is the main fear we must have. The final judge.
So if I'm going to apply the jungle rule, the best solution for me is to be within the clans of the strongest, and just like e animal kingdom where the strongest is the dominant one., likewise here, only that the strongest don't look like the strongest In the eyes. Being good and obedient to the law is being within the strong, and most importantly obedience to God is aligning with the most powerful, so its clearly seen that being a good person even in a jungle world as this. Keep caring and keep being a good Citizen.
It's a new week and I hope you have the best of start and a productive week altogether. Life is Magical.
Well said life is deep down a jungle where people doesn't fear God and always remains struggle in being better than others. They didn't bother to share what they have with other and it's not big deal to harm other once they get chance.
