What do you do when you have been hurt or have been hurt often? You tend to be more careful and you tend to be more self protective.
How old were you when you heart was first broken? Remember that first girl or first boy who promised everything to you and then discarded you when something better came around. Remember those friends who only wanted you around because you had a car or was a source for excitement/entertainment? Those were hard lessons as your heart was broken time and time again.
You can see this distrust within the lies and deceptions which keep the races separate and isolated. Even when it has already been scientifically proven that their is only one race and it is human. You can see the distrust between the white collar and blue collar workers within business. There is even more distrust within business between those who are the shareholders and with the managers. There is nearly perpetual forms of division through the belief of distrust.
Distrust can also be a learned behavior. Taught to the new recruit at a particular level within any organization. Distrust is taught to the young children. Even parents teach distrust without even being aware. Governments teach distrust through active propaganda programs. Which then propagates through society via person to person.
Eventually you get a cat or a dog as your primary source of companionship. The dog is always loyal no matter what. We as a modern and civilized society have forgotten the importance of loyalty in favor of me and what about me right now. Selfishness in society can be measured in the stuff we own. Which the more stuff we have is a measuring stick for the depth of our own apathy. The lie is that you own anything. It doesn't even matter if you have some kind of legal document proclaiming ownership of those things. Those things own you. Because, when there is a problem with that thing you will go running with check book and credit card in hand. Then you will be concerned and worried over that thing which isn't even alive and will show zero gratitude. So who owns what or who?
The person with much distrusts the person who lacks. The person who lacks distrusts the person with much. One person believes one will take. While the other believes one will steal. The divide between those who have little and those who have much is created. The person who has much should not give to the person who has little. The person who has much should empower the person who desires to free themselves from poverty. Through conditional gifts of housing, food, educational grants and transportation. Some people require little while others will require more.
Beware of takers who only want for the now while manipulating you into their desire of free greed without the productive progression of works.
Honesty leads to being trustworthy. Being trustworthy during a persons times of trials and tribulations changes souls.
A free meal only makes for a happy tummy and changes nothing else. Even gratitude may only be spoken in order to get more free stuff. When you sense the illusion of gratitude. The heart and soul of that person is beyond your ability to assist with any transition into a more positive life free of curses. Give it to GOD and move on to those whom you can assist or help.
A person who expresses no gratitude is the worst kind of thief. They are not only stealing from you but they are stealing from those who need the most.
Do not allow those who take advantage of you to spoil or persuade you to cease your activities. Trust and have faith that GOD will see this through. For every act of compassion and kindness your freely give away without any expectation. The greedy selfish and blackened heart who takes without genuine gratitude, will answer to GOD for every offense. Just wash your hands and move on to those who truly need.
Sometimes it is interesting how some of what I write just evolves into something that I know not of. I had no idea when I sat down. Maybe this is for a specific person. It would be interesting to have a follow up story with non-identifying information.
:The Lies and Deceptions of RACE:
We are all one humanity, one species and one family. When all of the common peoples unite together to love one another, to live in peace with each other and to exist in harmony. Then we all can find a very rich life we all can live with great meaning.
If you cannot separate yourself from the lies and deceptions of the separation and division of the races. Then you, your family and your entire church will/may not be one of the elect, protected, saved or raptured. You must begin to know and believe that we are a single race of beings called humans. We are all brother and sister to one another.
