YES, MAN IS NOTHING BUT, AN INSATIABLE BEAST!
Adam Smith didn’t quite put it right. He said ; “man’s wants are infinite”.
Much Respect Sir, but I had rather put it in this perspective; “MAN (ITSELF) IS INSATIABLE”. It is the insatiable nature of the man that produces the limitless wants not the reverse, for a man can not but want. It is his innate nature to want.
Here are my submissions;
It is the man who produces and conjures the vain desires which transmits to endless wants within and around him. If you do not desire a thing, you can not want it (Let that sink). Man is an endless insatiable and deadly crave, thus; “The more he has, the more he wants. The less he has, the more he needs.” How pitiable? Indeed, a very sorry state!
Man in itself without the Holy Spirit or Conscience or perhaps even Religion is nothing but an INSATIABLE VENOMOUS RAVAGING BEAST. Wanting to conquer, Seeking to own, possess and Lord all destroying everything in its wake. I put it to you imagine this World without Religion or Morality, what are we, nothing but SALVAGES! (NB: Without Morality there can be no law)
Man can not be content with NOTHING, neither can He with EVERYTHING – not his beautiful wife (not enough), loving kids with piercing eyes(still misses something), all his wealth and monies; not nearly close – wonder why the rich can’t even find sleep; He like the poor is same. The former looses sleep because of the magnanimity of his substance and the latter because of his lack. What a beautiful dark twisted fantasy? (I know I don’t like Kanye but I just went Yeezy. Riddle me that? … Hova)
Not in his beautiful state of the art mansions or all the feats only He can afford (no peace), still an empty void remains deep within craving more.
Not in his prestigious occupation or pristine profession or job (still searches and asks; Couldn’t there be more?).
Not in all his luxuries, and possessions, so he starts indulging in vices such as drinking, partying, smoking, … trying to find more ways to express himself to cover up his shameful impression of himself. To no avail still; the pit draws.
A cult perhaps, trying to turn spiritual, seeking power or some form of deeper knowledge, or building ties, bonds and connections. Least, just being different, still d crave looms.
Another chooses Atheism’ better to believe in a falsehood, running away from foundational truths as taught by family, church and Society. Finding something new and exciting as believing in a new ‘possibility’ with so much opposition gives you a new thrill and makes you seem Super Human. Yeah, its all eyes on you or You against the World, feeling like Shakur.
But for how long? Can you truly kick against the pricks, when His evidences are all around you?
But He doesn’t realize the folly; it is only luring him to his grave. Sighs of dissatisfaction as he takes his last.
GODLINESS WITH CONTENTMENT the Holy Book puts it is – GREAT GAIN. Without the fear of God, a man will always be RULED by his flesh; pleasures, vanity, lasciviousness, self-conceitedness, fake lifestyles unto pleasing Self which is a thing impossible. So he tries to please others by wrongfully thinking by doing same he might attain some semblance. But a madness still. The old man heaves another sigh as he sees another fresh generation take the wrong alley, desperately searching for the wrong things in all the wrong places, so much energy and youthfulness all to no avail. More vicious and Desperate, Yet lay before them the right path, so much more easier. A TRUE GLORY THAT FULFILLS AND SATISFIES!
But, who will guide them? Do they even seek to be guided?? When they know it all already, ready made from the whom with Internet fingers.
So the old man sleeps for he wouldn’t be listened to. He keeps his wisdom by his pillows. WISDOM is PRICELESS, very precious, very costly, hard to get and should not be lavished on fools. For all the lot; the children of this age seems wiser than all their forebears.
So he mutters ; “there is a way that seemeth RIGHT unto a man but the end thereof is (COLLOSAL) DESTRUCTION”.
MY SON HEARKEN TO MY WORDS :
INNER PEACE IS EVERYTHING!!
FIND JESUS; HE IS THE WAY; ONLY GOD CAN SATISFY A MAN AND THUS END HIS CRAVE!!!
