As I sit here, I can't help but wonder why things have remained the way they have been and worse. We have been running around the same circle. Old sins are being paid back with new sins. A tribe will give you reasons why it will not forgive another tribe for what they did to them one year or the other and vice-versa. How much more the north and south arguments?!

We should understand that what binds a society together is love and trust not tribal uniformity or differences and other mundane things.

Love binds a society together while trust oils the wheel of progress within the society. It must also be said that without love, there can be no trust.

According to the Bible in the book of Matthew 22;32-40, one of the sadducees asked Jesus “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment." And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” If I obey all civil, criminal and common laws ever made on earth and I break this simple law as it is written, I will continue to deny myself the sweetness of a peaceful society. For this is the greatest law. Love is all that I need.

Without trust, how can I live? I won't buy food or food items if I can't trust the seller. I won't keep money in the bank if I don't trust the banking system. I won't even give to the beggar if I don't trust his or her intention. What if my cook decides to poison me? What if the bus driver swerves to the direction of d oncoming trailer? I have come to realise that more often than not my life is not in my hands(without trying to be religious) but in the hands of the other man whom I MUST trust to do the right thing.

I can give a hundred reasons why the government and the society is bad but hold on a sec,am I not a part of the society? For every act of mine that is devoid of love for the next person, I deny the society peace and trust - Irrespective of where,when and how I commit the act(s). I inadvertently deny my neighbours and myself a chance to live - for how can I live without trust?

What goes around truly comes around.
