Crazy Logic 101: Sowing And Reaping
|Don’t tell me “Impossibility is nothing” cos then some people will go out of their way to create the “Impossible”|
I just finish watching the movie “Notorious”. It’s bassed on the life of Christopher “Biggie Smalls” Wallace. A.k.a Notorious B.I.G As it got towards the end, just when His Voice Over had ended and that of His mum was taking over, it was the scene depicting the procession to His burial. I began to see a massive similarity between B.I.G and Nigeria’s own Dagrin. I remember shortly after the death of Dagrin, the crazy display of love shown by his fan, and a lot of shared philosophies between them. As well as what they had in common with TU Pac Shakur.
I’ll dwell more on that some other time. In the meantime, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking. Almost every time I hear an adult and a youth or young adult have a misunderstanding, many of the adult or should I say older folks immediately start talking on how they were more respectful and well behaved in their younger days, How Youths of this days are stubborn, disrespectful and on their way to ruin.
They then go on to lecture you on Actions and Repercussions, as well as the principle of Sowing and Reaping. This always leaves me wondering, What exactly did these Folks sow when they were young? Considering how these “Adults” all claim to have live an Innocent and Well behaved life, I begin to wonder, who among them did all the wrong things we hear of now? Looking at the story they tell, almost everyone of them knows or were friend with “one boy” who was stubborn and ended up wrecked. They also know “one girl” that wouldn’t read her book and ended up as a prostitute. But if we follow the principle of show me your friend and I will tell who you are, shouldn’t we ask what these “Adult folks” were doing with such bad friends back then? and where exactly are that “bad boy” and “stubborn girl” now so we can ask for their own part of the story? after all, there are always two or more side to every story.
As I was saying, following the principle of reaping what you sow, isn’t there a possibility these “Adult Folks” are reaping the consequences of their youthful ways? Is there not a possibility that they are getting the judgment for all of their own stubbornness and rebellion?
A man whose son is repeatedly stealing His money, shouldn’t we ask how much of His dad’s money He stole, A woman whose daughter wouldn’t heed to her advice and is insistent on following some sugar daddy, shouldn’t we ask how many boyfriends and sugar daddies the mum had in her days?
In summary, there is a possibility the heartaches some older folks experience are the result of actions of their younger ones. But then the younger folks shouldn’t carry on with their naughty habits, because they just might have to bear the consequences in the future. Even if an Older fellow is deserving of a punishment, If you are not in a position of Authority or Leadership over him, then it is not you place to execute such judgment.
Remember “The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.”
