Thoughts & Life #14

People who set traps for others get caught themselves. People who start landslides get crushed. Proverbs 26:27 (GN)


What you sow, you reap goes a familiar saying. In my local language they say when you point accusing fingers at another person, remember the other remaining four fingers are pointing right back at you.

Why do we sometimes set traps for others to fall in so that we can get ahead? In my mind’s eye, such a person will end up falling into a “bigger trap”.

Learn to lift others up, because you will have many hands lifting you up back in return
Learn to celebrate others and rejoice with them as they make progress, it will be your turn soon too.
Learn to patiently wait for your time; it will be your turn to be celebrated soon.

Adebisi Adetunji (C)
