Church In Abuja Where Pastor Charges N50k To Swim In Miracle Swimming Pool / 25 Early Morning Prayer To Command Your Day / There Are No Such Things As Witches And Wizards; It's Just A Psychiatric Issue (2) (3) (4)
|It's Not Miracle, It's Just Not Your Day! by McCoy662(m): 5:58am On Nov 10|
For sometime now I have been wondering why we get so excited over other people's misfortune. Is it really a good thing to be happy when others perish but you survived?
I have heard a countless testimonies about how people survive an accident that claim all other passengers' life. They came to church so happy just to thank God that just a life out of 20 or more was saved. But the reality is, if we really love our neighbors as ourselves, then, we wouldn't be so happy. Imagine if your immediate family member also lost his or her life, will you still be so happy that only you survived it?
So how much a good thing is it that:
✓Others are in the hospital and many in the mortuary but u are Hale and hearty?
✓ that every other person lost his or her life but only you survived?
✓ that others were burgled but u weren't?
✓ that others are poor and wretched but u are not
✓ that others are not married but u are
✓ that others have no home but u do
✓ that others are ravaged by sickness and plague but you are not
✓ that others are suffering in their countries but you are not.
For me, I really think self centeredness is the reason why we rejoice over people's misfortune because a problem of one should be a problem of all. Moreover, it's not like you have been given a certificate that you are forever free from whatever incident you escape today. It's just a fluke, don't let it get into your head. You are just lucky to survive the one u did, it's not any magic or miracle.
Let love lead
