Understanding My Place


Last week we were able to establish the facts behind the two genders. What they both stand for, their pride and what they symbolize.

Often time, one way or the other, you might have wished to be a man or any situation could have warrant you to seriously or jokingly wished to be a woman, being a man. It is an insult of the highest order to have ever wished for such, who are you clay to question the potter “why did you make me like this”. Or you are like “why am I in Nigeria, why not the US”, “why am I in the US, why not somewhere else? “, such and such wishes have flowed through the minds of million and escaped through the mouths of thousands. It is embarrassing to question who you are or where you are. Oh! Would you have possibly wished to be a goat or fish? Perhaps chicken, that people kill for christmas? Or a cow? You will probably have graced a wedding occasion after being boiled and fried. It is like giving a begger a thousand dollars, and he is still complaining, the worst he is expected to do is to say “Thanks”.

You are a product of God’s purpose, He had something in mind, and so thought of making you, and here you are, He made you! As a man and as a woman.


The Lady Vs The Lad

Debate often arise on the subject of the superior between the two genders. In high schools and collegs and other institutions that debates. It usually goes this way “A male child is better than a female child”. That is when some people gets to defend their gender, lots and lots of  points is drawn out or spoken to support personal view on the subject. We even go all the way in surfing the internet to know who is indeed better than the other. That was when a confident lady arose and said “What a man can do, a woman can do better”, and another man arose and opposed “stop deceiving yourself, a woman can’t do what a man can do”. I wonder how God’s countenance will be when we argue on these stuffs, can you take a minute and imagine yourself the expression in God’s face when we argue and fight over these things. It is all about understanding your place, as I explained last week, when you understand your place, you will see that there is no point in comparing the one with the other because they were made in God’s image, according to His perfect creativity and serve specific purpose. Look at this example, aircraft is very good and the fastest means of transportation, apart from having a phobia for flying, most people would choose aircraft over automobile, mind you, they serve different purpose, of course, we can prefer one to the other, an automobile can move on any ground suitable, that’s what it is designed for, on the contrary , an aircraft is designed to fly. It is a lack of good judgement to eradicate or move into extinct automobiles all because there is aircraft, aircraft can do what an automobile can’t do, and vice versa. So it is only fair to appreciate the two and put them in their place. Now know this, a man is not a woman and a woman is not a man. Embrace who you are and where you are.
