The Pain of Others

From January until now, the world descended slowly into the shadow of itself. What many thoughts was only the ‘Chinese business’, is now everyone’s business.

Amid this trouble are scammers who prefer to take advantage of the situation to hurt others. They drain the most vulnerable of their incomes by selling protective accessories at exorbitant prices. We hear of sales of masks or hand sanitisers about ten times their reasonable prices.

When you hear that you wonder what happened to the fear of God? After all, not everyone believes Jehovah exists. Nonetheless, feeding upon the pain of others is a sin. The Bible says God will neither forsake nor abandon the most vulnerable, and these are not just the elderly, those with disabilities or children. Some people are vulnerable as well because they are sensitive and fraudulent folks understand this.

Anything earned at the expenses of the pain of others is never a source of durable blessing. Do you ask why calamities are never far from many? It takes only a few minutes of digging into their lives to understand they have caused so much damaging in many people’s lives.

May the Lord Almighty help us.
