Short Story:Are humans the most Ungrateful?

Updated on February 10, 2012

Are humans the most ungrateful?

Well I don’t truly know, and I really don’t want to know, because my truth is , that I think so, and it makes me furious. Because one of the most dangerous entity to infect mankind, one that’s been there with him since creation, have since spiraled out of control, to become so dangerous, that children who are not even born as yet are, can already from their parents, be diagnosed with those same traits and symptoms.

This is what mankind has been suffering with, from then throughout the duration of his existence, because it is very close and deep rooted in , not only the family structure, but in the entire human race. Rambunctiousness is the way to go when they are young and energetic, roaming wild and free , and at the very first sign of turbulence, seeking feverishly to find the safety and comfort of the outstretched arms of the Most High God.

But here is their dilemma, God knows the heart of man , God cannot be fooled, One cannot hide from God. In the ways of the Most High, children which we all are are expected to be even more understanding than their parents because of the lessons they should have learned from their parents. To be able to advance on what's already there should make most jobs twice as easy , than the one where you are starting from scratch ofr having to break down and rebuild. Why so many children in these times are actually blind to those ways are besides me . But they are the ones who are now , thinking , as they are shot down , that all you would have to do is just show up when you are old and dying. You must first learn how to be sincere.

I don’t really like getting into any arguments or quarrels, any scientific discussions about the origin of man or the age of mankind , but I have written so many times that man and ape could be easily related because they were all created by the Most High God. If that makes up brothers. So be it! But the ape cannot be out parents. Although even now and at this stage in creation, men are displaying symptoms of such terrible traits, that we have so often seen in most animals.

Selfishness, hate, anger, greed, and jealousy, we are still the ones can do whatever we want to do with them and that we have hopefully matured enough to know that we can not do these same things with each other.

It was not for the lack of an effort, because we have actually tried them all. What we went on to develop was the next best thing, which is to resist the true human calling, as we have seen in the very early days of the man as it says in the case with Cain and Abel , after Cain slew his brother Abel his rebellion led him to Ask, instead of answering : Am I , my brothers keeper?

That how early the curse started to spread. in the book of Genesis 4:9 it says: Then the Most High God said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" "I don't know," he replied. "Am I my brother's keeper?"

The build up anger and jealousy led to disobedience, with leads to same selfishness and greed now shown, on a scale of massive proportions, it became and infectious disease which contaminated all as it was allowed spread, deep into the hearts of man, which at this time in man's existence, he is struggling with himself. Not because he does not know, but rather because he is infected with that same selfishness that he displayed from creation.

Here is what it says in the Bible, in the book of Romans 12:2. Jesus described God's word as spiritual food saying "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of the Most High God"

Deuteronomy 6:6 "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:" Proverb 3:1 "My son, forgets not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments:"

What intrigues me with the Bible is, And I always ask this question: are our best days already gone, and if the greatest men that ever lived are all in the past. As much as now I know that man is definitely heading in a destructive direction, with our best days and people already behind our spiritual doom cannot be far off.

Here is the miracle of the Bible , how can any book written so long ago before all who presently lives on this earth was born , and it can still with pinpoint accuracy, tell you Sir /Madam, exactly what you would have done all these years later. Do you know what I have grown to realize, people are actually afraid to pick up and read the Bible the already proven greatest book ever written.

But they are falling directly under the powerful hold of the Devil himself, instead of using the Bible to defeat the powers of evil. So those who do not find this book extremely useful are most likely already under the powerful hold of someone else other than Most High God. Our father!

I always invite these thoughts to comfort my mind as I sleep, so that my thoughts and possible dreams would be a carefully constructed set of actions meant to offer first some clarity to myself so that I can share with others, reconnect with this great spirit of the true human nature. One that’s void of the selfishness and greed. I know that whenever you do not think good, evil is lurking right next door to fill that void , and in seconds , you are angry at the world , the truth is you are angry at your self, grumpy this day , in a bad mood, what do you think are the reasons for that? It doesn’t matter what is bothering you at any given time of the day, whenever you are displaying anger, guess what!

It’s the psychology of the forces of evil to; use you to disrupt other people’s lives. See if you get hold of my hub which says a bad is meant to be spent alone. My reasons were that you contain your sickness! You are not going out to spread cheer, and it’s not the fault or burden of those you will vent your frustrations towards.

Watch out for part (2)……… be cont…

      You have surpassed even the description I had for it , so to that I would say, that yours is even more of the appropriate description.

      From the treatment we have received from others ourselves and those we know that others were treated unjustly. The treatment that made you wish you had the power in your hands to react, and you should take it to your Heavenly Father. And remember that they Crucified Jesus also.

      Thanks for such a great comment Cardisa, I felt it.

      Thanks Eddy I will always appreciated your truthful comments, and the best of it all it is in my own style. I have no desire to be any other. It came from my Dad .

      There is only one Sky. I love Shakespeare, but have no desire to be him.

      That's how I can tell people are sincere , they accept another as they are , even the best in the world , would me you and compliment you about you !

      Here is what one sang.

      "Don't go changing to try and please me."

      And we all love billy Joel.

      The envy of most great places on earth , is there adaptation to diversity.

      The best soups in the world are those with a pinch of everything, after knowing God love every nation and every race, I would not for one second , go changing to please anyone but the Most High God and here is what he said.

      Always a pleasure Eddy. Take your time to view the video.

      Have a beautiful day.

      Before I read the hub I am choosing to answer the title question.

      No other specie has the knwoledge and understanding that humans have, given the brain power to choose and ponder it makes us the only specie who choose not to appreciate.

      Let me make my case. Animals that we domesticate usually show loyalty and affection. They may harm you if they fear their lives are in danger and that's how they were made. But love them and they will be loyal to the end.

      Humans aren't like that. They choose who they love no matter who loves them back. If they don't like you they will not appreciate you no matter how wonderful you are to them. It's the same attitude towards GOD. They profess they love him but their actions speak differently.

      Yes humans are ungrateful specie. And I didn't even touch on Adam and Eve!

      So I read and am sticking with my opinion. I like the Deuteronomy scripture you quoted.

      Thank you tillsontitan, a smile. Every word is well taken and fully understood , and I love to hear about Dad , what they did always have such lasting impression . Make you know and appreciate their wisdom as it shines through their love.

      It's simply always beautiful when we grow to appreciate the role they played in it all.

      Yes you are correct we have missed the mark , and what makes it sad is that it's not for the lack of knowledge.

      Always a pleasure seeing you around , positiveness soars every time.

      Blessings .

      I hate to admit it but yes, man is ungrateful. God has given us so much and we take much of it for granted. I have always believed God is a loving father and having had a loving father I can understand the limitless love He has for us. The video you chose is absolutely beautiful in both pictures and words. Much food for thought in your well thought out hub. Your Bible quotes are definitely apropos and give more food for thought. Voted up and interesting.
