Betrayal: Scorpion and Turtle Folktale

Image
A scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a turtle to carry him on his back across a river. “Are you mad? exclaimed the turtle. “You’ll sting me while I’m swimming and I’ll drown.

My dear turtle, laughed the scorpion, “if I were to sting you, you would drown and I would go down with you. Now where is the logic in that?

You’re right! cried the turtle. Hop on! The scorpion then climbed aboard and halfway across the river gave the turtle a deadly sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the turtle resignedly said:

Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there’d be no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it? It has nothing to do with logic, the drowning scorpion sadly replied. It’s just my character.

So it is with SOME  humans too. No matter how nice or good you are to them, its just their nature and character to sting ( betray, rob, cheat, hurt, kill, blackmail etc) for no reason.

May the Almighty God protect you from the scorpions in your life!

Let's Be Selflessly Available When Our Children Need Us

As a parent, please get your priorities right!
My name is Mercy. I am a christian.
I got married at 25, finished my PhD at 27 and became a Professor at 40. So fast you said? Yes, everything around me work fast. It was now that I realise that it was a misplaced priority.

My ambition blindfolded me and I got it all wrong, that is why I am sharing my experience through this medium to warn and encourage our young mothers not to be careless as I was back then.

I worked very hard as a lecturer and as an administrator, always busy that it became my language to my children.

My mum was around to nurse the children for me for sometime, the moment they clock ten, I usually send them to boarding school, though my husband was not in support but I always find my way. I have no good warm relationship with my children, 2 boys and a girl.

I never knew it was a bad idea not to have time with my husband, children and the household, until 5 years ago, when guilt, loneliness and restlessness filled my he…

Life does not have a universal measuring tool

A guy met one of his school mates several years after school and he could not believe his eyes; his friend was driving one of the latest sleek Mercedes Benz cars. He went home feeling awful and very disappointed in himself. He thought he was a failure. What he didn't know was that his friend was a driver and had been sent on errand with his boss's car!


Rosemary nagged her husband always for not being romantic. She accused him for not getting down to open the car door for her as her friend Jane's husband did when he dropped her off at work. What Rosemary didn't know was that Jane's husband's car had a faulty door that could only be opened from the outside!

Sampson's wife went to visit one of her long time friends and was very troubled for seeing the 3 lovely kids of her friend playing around. Her problem was that she had only one child and have been struggling to conceive for the past five years. What she didn't know was that one of those kids who was t…

She Slept With Her Snake and Then the Vet Told Her Something Shocking

Image
This is a true story about a woman from India who lived in the Middle Ages and had a pet snake, python, which she loved so much. The snake was 4 meters long and looked healthy. However, one day her unusual pet just stopped eating.

This lack of appetite in the snake continued over a few weeks. The desperate woman tried everything she could and offered anything that a snake would like to strangle and eat. Nothing worked, and finally the woman took her loving pet to the veterinarian as a last resort.

The vet listened to the woman carefully and asked, “Does your snake sleep with you at night, wrap around you closely and spread out throughout its length?” The woman was surprised and with a lot of hope she said, “Yes! Yes! It does it every day and it makes me so sad because I see something asking of me, and I cannot help it feel better.”

Then, the vet said something shocking and most unexpected. “Madam, your pet is not sick; it is just preparing to eat you.” Yes, the python wasn’t sick but…
