It does make one question: when do we have enough? If professionals see nothing wrong in behaving in this way, in displaying this amount of greed in this economic climate, we are doomed.
Greed is everywhere. I look around me at the growing (quite literally) population, and wonder….. when will we have eaten enough? I heard that the extra amount we consume is the equivalent of feeding 1 BILLION people.
When will we care enough? when will we understand that it is NOT ABOUT OURSELVES, BUT ABOUT OTHERS.
It is about how we behave.We have choices: we frequently use them badly.
We can enjoy so much at no cost. There is so much for free, that apparently nobody values it any more. Look outwards and upwards. Do not look inwards and downwards. What would happen in the ultimate scenario, when everyone only thinks of himself?IF GOD SHOULD GO ON STRIKE It’s just a good thing that God above Has never gone on strike Because he wasn’t treated fair, Or things he didn’t like. If he had ever once sat down And said “That’s it. I’m through. I’ve had enough of those on earth So this is what I’ll do. I’ll give my orders to the sun: Cut off your power supply, And to the moon: give no more light And run those oceans dry. Then, just to make it really tough And put the pressure on Turn off the air and oxygen Till every breath is gone.” Do you know He would be justified If fairness was the game? For no-one has been more abused Or treated with disdain Than God – and yet he carries on Supplying you and me With all the favours of His grace And everything for free! Men say they want a better deal And so on strike they go, But what a deal we’ve given God To whom everything we owe. We don’t care who we hurt or harm To gain the things we like But what a mess we’d all be in If God should go on strike! © Linda Jane McLean
