Why The Robbery In Our Society?

April 13, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 160

Yesterday, something happened that led me to this write-up. It rained heavily in the evening from about 7:15pm to about 8:20pm of Thursday 13/04/2012 and few minutes after the rain stopped, I saw a well dressed guy ran passed me in opposite direction not minding the flooded area due to the rain, in my mind I thought the guy was Simon Peter the 2nd because he was just running on waters with his shoe and trouser on. While I was trying to fashion out why this unusual race, there came another well dressed woman with her pair of shoe in her hands and she was shouting "armed robbers oh, armed robbers oh, my car oh, my car oh" endlessly. It was then it dawned on us that armed robbers were operating few poles ahead of us.

Friends, you really need to see how cars were reversing, tyres screeching, and store doors were just banging one after the other. I myself was praying to God for divine coverage back home and thank God I got home safely.

Why the robbery? The question kept bothering me. Why someone should go to the highway to rob at gun point? Why the robbery? When there is more than enough wealth for everyone on planet earth. Have you ever heard that things were so tough, that the entire money on earth got finished? The answer is NO. Even when there was global economy melt down, the money on earth did not finish and so shall it be till thy kingdom come.

Why the robbery? When there are several self-empowerment platforms online and offline for everyone to benefit from irrespective of class.

Why the robbery? When we are all created equal as stated by Martin Luther King Junior, meaning all men have equal opportunity to succeed in life but we must take full responsibility to succeed by the developing of our minds toward success.

However, we must learn to contribute positively to the wellbeing of our fellow man no matter how little it may be. Because the man you fail to help today that is in need of help may be frustrated into armed robbery tomorrow and you may be his first point of attack.

Friends! Please and please, let us all develop our minds toward success and also let us all contribute to the development of our society because if everybody is well and able, armed robbery will reduce drastically. "A word is enough for the wise". Thank you!

I am into community and concept development consulting, publishing, as well as youth empowerment facilitator. You can visit my website at Thank you
