The word ‘ground’ refers to the earth; Something you can step on, or even dig with a home.
One unique thing about the ground is that no matter what you do to it, it never complains.
When you are doing everything you can to hurt it, it is just looking at you without fighting back because it knows that at the end, it will have the last laugh.
Every human being, no matter how old he gets, will die one day and the ground will swallow the fellow.
There is a lesson to learn from the ground here.
It is that even when people are doing everything to hurt you, if you refuse to retaliate or hate them, you will have the last laugh.
Sometimes ago, I locked my sons and I up for 12 hours without food or drink just to teach them some facts of life.
One of the lessons I taught them that day was that they should never hate their enemies no matter what happens. Why?
Hatred contaminates you and when gold is contaminated, it cannot shine as it ought to anymore.
Hatred is of the devil, God is love.
If there is hatred in you, then you have something of the devil inside you and that will hinder your shining.
Never hate your enemies no matter what happens, always respond in love
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
DUETERONOMY 14-16 ; MARK 13:14-37
1.Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to thee
Take my moment and days
Let them flow ceaseless praise.
2.Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of thy love
Take my feet and them be
Swift and beautiful for thee
3.Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my king
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from thee.
4.Take my sliver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as thou shalt choose.
5.Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
6.Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At They feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee
