OUR MULTI STORIED WORLD

“Eche! True! (Places finger on tongue and points to heavens) I didn’t intend posting it but because you already said I would, I said ‘what’s there? Just post it after all there is an insight’” THIS IS ME SPEAKING..

See what happened.. Me, Dare, Tochuku, Uzor, Eche and two other classmates were waiting in front of the library to write the ‘famous’ CEDR cbt exam in the library.

(CEDR- centre for development and research- exam has always been famous before it became multiple choiced cbt-computer based test- coz of the amount of F’s they gave but now it is famous coz on this day of our exam, first batch out of five which were scheduled for 2pm started by 4pm and so by the time it got to 2nd and 3rd batches, people were fainting. )

Okay.. so we were waiting oo..then I heard one department called up..it was sooo weird.. very different from mine..i was just wondering how two people will be in same school but have drastically different experiences and knowledge. I said it and Eche naaa said… lemme not say what he said.. ehee but you see..it’s crazy how we can’t have same experiences. How neither me nor you can be born into Pete Edochie’s home and be born into Will Smith’s home and still be born into our home.

It’s crazy that we can’t attend King’s college and FGC okposi and urban girls’ sec sch and still attend the secondary school we attended. We can’t school at UNN, and University of Texas and Ida polytechnic, Kogi and still school in the higher institution we were or are or will be schooling at.

We cannot study architecture and engineering and theatre arts and still study the course we are studying. We cannot be born in May and be born in January and still be born in our own month.

We each have individual lives, individual experiences, and in summary individual stories. Lol. This causes all the difference in the world so we want to know what it feels like to be this or that and live here or there and become this or that and have this or that. But I don’t think it will make any sense if it were that way.. I mean all these differences make life spiced up and not boring. It makes us able to have lots of stories to hear and be able to tell our own.. and one thing is constant, in each person’s story, there are tragic and there are comic moments.

The best we can do is to live our one lives well.. make the best of our own stories and see them to their end.. I know and not just think this time around that we can actually better our stories by featuring in other people’s, we feature atimes without consciously knowing but we can also feature consciously, show up sometimes in the middle of a scene and change the course, of course into a better outcome.

This is our multi storied world.. we should each live the one life we have.

A LITTLE ON FORGIVENESS

When Jesus was asked, “How many times should I forgive my brother when he offends me?” He answered, “seventy times seven”

In other words He was saying ‘uncountable’, He was saying ‘forgive, don’t count’

Imagine that someone could be asking how many times they should forgive, probably after which they can start holding grudges. That would not even be forgiveness in the first place, but Jesus ahhhh.. wise man “in whom there is no hypocrisy” told them seventy times seven.

First of all, no body in this life can annoy you 490 times in a day.. Even if the person is given a lifetime to annoy you, you will lose count..well..except you want to have an heart attack.

Secondly, you will be a fool to be counting but if you want to count, you should as well have a book so you don’t fast forward the amount of times or reduce it either.

So, you see either ways you lose if you don’t learn to forgive at the spot. I once read a quote i will paraphrase

“When I forgave, I realized I set a prisoner free and that prisoner was me”

Forgiveness from this statement by Jesus wasn’t dependent on the offender, whether he asked forgiveness or even felt remorse. Jesus said keep forgiving.

Love keeps no records of wrongs. God is love. He wouldn’t expect us to forgive that way if it were not His character. And we are sons and daughters of God who is love. We have His nature so we keep no records of wrongs but forgive 70*7 times.
