The True Nature of Man

The True Nature of Man

Human beings in their natural state comprise selfish acts and wicked deeds. The Bible describes the heart of man as a deceitful object that is desperately wicked and cannot be known by others.

“The heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9.

In the practical sense of it, there is nothing good to expect from a natural man until such a man has an encounter with God and got his mind renewed with the knowledge of God.

Here is how human nature operates:

1. When you DO something for some people for the FIRST TIME, you create in them a sense of APPRECIATION towards you.

2. When you DO something for some people the SECOND TIME, you create in them a sense of ANTICIPATION towards you.

3. When you DO something for some people the THIRD TIME, you create in them a sense of EXPECTATION towards you.

4. When you DO something for some people the FORTH TIME, you create in them a sense of ENTITLEMENT towards you.

5. When you FAIL TO DO something for some people after all you have done for them, you create in them a sense of RESENTMENT towards you.

6. When you COULD NOT DO something for some people after a long time, you create in them a sense of HATRED towards you.

7. When it is obvious you can NO LONGER DO something for some people, you create in them a sense of EVIL and WICKEDNESS towards you.

*NOTE:*

It is only a regenerated soul that would not become negative towards you after you are unable to continually satisfy their desires and expectations.

*LESSON:*

Never Start What You Cannot Finish.

I Wish You A Pleasant Weekend!
