Hatred corrodes the container it is carried in — Senator Alan Simpson.
The first victim of hatred is the hater.
He or she corrodes from inside whilst harbouring and spewing hatred. And it is just a matter of time before visible holes begin to emerge, thereby letting in free radicals into the innermost chambers.
We see this happening now in our nation, Nigeria!
We are seeing daily the unravelling of those who told us that Love was the greatest force on earth.
They told us that “God is Love”, and they are right. God is Love, no controversy about it.
The only controversy is: they said it, but they don’t believe it, and they don’t know the true meaning of it.
God is Love, no matter what they say now, or do.
I see and hear, all over the country, the deprioritization of values in favour of expediency. I see and hear about the moral flipping and somersault because of selfish interests.
I see and hear, highly respected people indulging in certain despicable acts, for the sake of politics. Some of the people are the men and women, that the country should be turning to in times of uncertainty.
But they have become the flame throwers, spewing divisive and incendiary rhetoric. They speak without candour and grace, accentuating rumours, they make demands on the people, and when the demands are unmet, they make definitive pronouncements as if God, is their errand boy.
God is God!
He is the creator of all things; including all the powerful men and women. He cannot be coerced into doing anyone’s biddings.
This is the time for every one of us to take a deep breath and ask: what can I do to make Nigeria, a more peaceful and prosperous Nation for all?
