Before some people will crucify me, let’s get a glimpse at the context of Poverty appropriate to this article.
Our focus here is not on absolute poverty but on relative poverty.
Human beings are characterized with unlimited wants which makes them to often describe themselves as being “poor” whereas they are not.
There are a lot of genuinely poor people out there, but they don’t shout it out on housetops or social media, No! Because they have accepted their situation and learned to live in it.
Now here is the truth: the difference between being poor or rich, lies with the aspect of being CONTENTED.
Yes, you heard me right!! Be contented.
Have you ever wondered why some people are not happy in life? Because they can’t seem to accept and be grateful for what GOD has done for them. Yes, they always want more. But, it’s okay, No problem!! But I hope you know, your wants are unlimited and you might never be totally satisfied.
Someone might have 2 million Fcfa in his bank account, but is living in misery in the name of wanting to have more. Claiming to be poor, while forgetting to know that there are people out there who don’t have a dime.
Being contented does not in anyway mean being lazy or not growing ambitions, No! Being contented means, appreciating what you have, and learn to live with it while expecting for more.
How can someone have a job, a place to sleep, food to eat, water to drink and even some little extra cash saved, yet they say, they are “poor“? That’s a typical insult to people who don’t have food, nor water, nor shelter. Infact, it is offensive!
