People don’t cherish good people

The problem today is people don’t cherish good people, they try to use them.

Many times, I have wondered how the story will be if I become the villain of the story, or payback wrongs meted out to me by people, in their coin.

People often trample on my rights; they feel I’m not meant to retaliate because I’m meant to be good.

Growing up, my parents left no stone unturned in my life. They made sure I was brought up in a Godly way, and I never departed from it.

I made sure not to change even in situations; people pushed me to the wall. I decided I wasn’t going to let people trample on me, just because I have chosen to be a better person.

 When I was in college, I was very intelligent and always helped people out with their assignments, and never collected a single dime from them.

People took my kindness as a sign of weakness, and the guys never stopped teasing me for being a fool, as girls were always my patronizers.

I wasn’t helping out with assignments to show off that I was intelligent, I just wanted to help. Even during exam time, questions to solve never stopped coming, and I was finding it hard keeping up with helping people.

My schedule got so tight that I forgot to solve a particular puzzle a student sent to my email.  On the supposed day she’s meant to collect it, I haven’t solved it.

She didn’t want to hear my reasons for not helping her out, she was the saucy type, and let hell loose.

I was wondering if I ever did wrong to help them pout in my little way. Many people helped with student projects, but at an exorbitant price.

It is obvious people don’t cherish good people.


  1. Dear friend, I have been very blessed reading your daily devotions and testimonies. Your parents have done a great work instilling good values that are sadly rare in today’s world. Last night friends and myself were reflecting on this very same topic. People’s attitudes towards kind loving people. It is obvious that such people do not know love or even its power value in our lives or that love is the source of all life force. So the only thing they can do is abuse and mock its presence. And perhaps that is why Christ said, forgive them for they know not what they do. And also in Proverb 20:22, it says, Don’t say, “I’ll pay back evil for evil”; wait for ADONAI to save you. In my experience this way has always worked in surprisingly strange and mysterious ways. May you always be blessed and protected for your faithfulness and care for the human heart.
