Who is the owner?
‘What exactly and who are we talking about here’ should be the questions in your mind. I will respond.
You ever came across a statement that suggests that ‘we should live in the world today like we borrowed it from your future children rather than inherited it from our forebearers’ This statement has a lot in it and everybody should stop for a moment and think about it.
Some people live like they are the last and that after them the world would come to an end. Why do I say this? The reason is that such people have never considered that there is some future and this future may leave them out of existence. No one is here to stay, the bitter truth is that we are all passing by and when the time comes we’ll have to take a leave ( i mean die). People struggling to accept this truth leave a very careless life.
An understanding that the world is not our own and that we borrowed it is all that everybody including young adults needs to understand to become responsible people. This means we will start conserving our environment in all the possible ways we can, and why is that? It is because we care enough to make a better world for our children. This would come with activities related to, afforestation rather than deforestation, togetherness, and unity rather than racism, tribalism and other related vices. Everybody could do better to make their home the best for their future children.
What then should we do?
It is true that most of our forebearers have done all they can to destroy this world, some did ‘a very good job’ to ensure this. But it is time as young people and the youth to claim that which belongs to us. Do you understand why they say, ‘the future is in the hands of the youth?’ It is the truth because the current generation will come to pass and another one will take over.
So it is very urgent as young people to claim the world from the careless rulers and make a difference. live in it with a better understanding that it is not ours too but those that will come after us. This is the simplest means and the cheapest tool to make the world a better place.
So, tell a friend to tell a friend, keep the gospel spreading. You will also have taken part in the campaign to make the world a better home.
