” But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant; whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all. For the son of man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many”.
Words like these throughout the Scriptures to some in this Society may be taken the wrong way and cry out that they are offended? This is why the issues we have today, are issues that can be easily fixed, only we need to better understand all that is around us.
” Whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant”? You mean all the great ones among us, are really the servants to us all? Words are always misconstrued to fit what ever each of us want them to be, but we never look at any words in the way in which they were truly meant to be looked at. Why do we do this of any words we read? maybe it is because we let the clouds of our judgements, blind us from truly seeing what we look at as we walk our paths of our journey through life.
” Whoever wishes to be first among you, will be the slave to all”? So those who pass you on the highway are our slaves? See again words being misconstrued to fit whatever need we want them to fit. We throughout Mankind are our own worst Enemies and the way we decipher each word we use, proves that we all are not truly looking deeply at what we see and our judgements are clouded, stopping us from moving forward to be better and stronger along this journey through life.
” Give his life for a ransom for many”? what truly does this mean that the son of Man gave himself as ransom for many? Jesus Christ was the son of Man and he was our Savior, so we could all learn from his teachings, rid ourselves of all this hate, so we could not only love ourselves, but love one another as he guided us all to the path of righteousness.
A big part of why words are always misconstrued is, when we don’t understand something, we then make up our own words and meanings, just to make ourselves understand anything and seem better than all those around us. We do this cause we are hiding deep within ourselves and putting forth a fake self for others around us to see, so we won’t be looked at as weak. The paths through this journey of life are all full of twists and turns, bumps and bruises and we all struggle through them, it is not healthy for any of us to hide from it, let alone hide our selves from each other, just so we can think we are stronger than the other. There are many paths throughout this journey of life, but there is only one path of righteousness.
” With experience there will be wisdom, you can never have wisdom without first having experience”
” This journey through life is only what you make it, if you make it hard it will be hard, if you make it easy then easy it will seem”
” We speak words everyday but yet we always misconstrue just to fit our needs, if we only better understood what is around us, then we could always find the right words that will help spread our love and joy of one another”
