If you live long enough, you will learn. That most people who stay in the same circumstances, want to be in those situations. They’ve had plenty of opportunities to change. Many opportunities to get ahead. However, many of them love the idea of being the victim, some of them thrive off the empathy of others. There’s always an excuse, I was born poor, my mother wasn’t in my life, I don’t have the money right now, it’s a bad time for me, I don’t have any help, “We Were Slaves,” the “White Man” holding me back, Excuses, Excuses, Excuses.
God said of those types of people, “You wicked and lazy Servant.” However, don’t forget the main excuse the servant gave to God was that he was afraid. That’s the story of most, they are afraid of the unknown, afraid of the unimaginable, afraid to pull the trigger on an opportunity that could change their lives forever. So instead of taking the leap, the stay comfortable in their uncomfortability.

Did you know, you could be Born Oppressed, but Not have to Stay That Way?
