Time and again we have witnessed how individuals who feel oppressed react when they feel pushed against the wall. First of all they sit on anger for a long time. When it finally exploits, its end results more often than not turns tragic. Here are a few examples to reflect on:

1.Countries, tribes, clans, communities that feel that they are treated as second class citizens. Look at Egypt, Syria, Zimbabwe and some communities around the world. Their many years of frustration usually push them to the street. Not a good idea at all and yet you and I have witnessed that over and over again

2.Students who feel rejected and or mocked by fellow students end up turning violent

3.Women who are bartered/abused for many years by their husbands. They end up either hurting their husbands or filing for divorce

And what leads to this kind of feelings? Here is a clue:

” One day, after Moses had grown up, he went out to where his own people were and watched them at their hard labor. He saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his own people. Looking this way and that and seeing no one, he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.” (Exodus 2:11-12)

“In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food” (Acts 6:

“In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. (Luke 10:30-33)

And what is the solution

1.Fairness, fairness, fairness—–

2.Humility, humility, humility…..

3.Be considerate of others

4.Stop practicing partiality and nepotism by all means(1 John 3:1-3)

5.Treat others like you would have liked to be treated (Matthew 7:12)

6.Start doing things differently. Repent and be sorry
