HUMBLED

I have always had issues with people who claim to know it all, The Jack of All Trades and Master of All. It has been my belief that none is an epitome of knowledge, a repertoire or a reservoir of wisdom. It is a pity that most people can not see things this way. Although we are wired differently, and are entitled to our perception of an issue based on our different perspective, the inalienable truth is unassailable and can never be thwarted.

Some people have refused to learn, others learn from their mistakes, only the wise learn from other peoples’ mistakes. With a little time for reflection and deep pondering, the end of a known series of actions can be envisaged. Why then must one wait for the unfortunate to redirect his steps from such calamity?

Power is sweet, authority is lovely. Both come with  responsibilities. Power, they say corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. When it is welded with impunity and reckless abandon, the end result is not usually palatable. The graveyard is believed to be full of people who thought they were indispensable only to realize that they are not only dispensable but also disposable. It is in the compound of the coward that ruined of the brave is view from. When entrusted with such a delicate thing as power don not forget everything with a beginning does have an end.

Enough of this rambling, a word is enough for the wise. Proverbs 5:12 -14 state thus; ” Why would I never learn? Why would I never let anyone correct me? I wouldn’t listen to my teachers. I paid no attention to them. And suddenly I found myself publicly disgraced” .
