The moment you decide to place more value on your life over another individual’s…is the moment you lose your spirit of discernment. The ability to discern enemies over sincerity. The skill to read people for their motives and intentions. It’s a gradual growth to becoming blind. This is the first sense to go. Blinded by the money, the lifestyle, the groupies, the libations…the dreams you’re being sold. Your reality shifts, and you lose sight of what’s real and what’s not. It’s like ‘Inception’ with Leonardo DiCaprio where by the end of the movie no one’s sure of the actual reality.
The worst part about going blind is that most of you haven’t even reached your full potential before you decide to poke out your eyes. You let the smallest, most irrelevant things boost your egos. Last night I tweeted, “Niggas get 1000 followers, and don’t know how to tweet back!” This is actually hilarious, but petty at the same time. The people who do the most, get the least recognition; the people who have the most talent, are the last to get respect; the people who love the most, are misused and abused by individuals who know not how to love. There’s a thin line between confidence and being insecure. If 1000 followers makes you feel like you’ve “made it” somewhere in life, then you must realize how little you truly think yourself. *shrugs*
Psalms 25: 9 – 13: The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. All the ways of the Lord are loving and faithful for those who keep the demands of his covenant. For the honor of your name, O Lord, forgive my many, many sins. Who, then, is the man that fears the Lord? He will instruct him in the way chosen for him. They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land.
The humble individuals who love honest and genuine; the individuals who don’t allow material things to drive their life; the individuals who look to inspire, uplift, help, guide, influence positively…those are the individuals who will receive the blessings written in His word. We were all created the same…spirits are the same…not one person is more valuable than another…He’s given us all gifts and a purpose in this life. Don’t be blinded by temporary bliss…nothing lasts forever, and the moment you get to feelin yaself too tough…He will take it all from you with a blink of an eye…your sight will then be restored.
