What kind of brother or sister are you?

Kathleen Worrall killed her sister Susan Worrall over a pair of hair straighteners.
The Bible is full of stories of brothers betraying their own brothers. However, the good thing about it is that all the betrayed ended up ruling over those who were wicked to them. Cain killed his own brother: Able. Joseph’s brothers sold him as a slave to Midianites. Samson’s own brothers disowned him and drove him from the family compound. The Jew who were supposed to defend and protect Jesus were the ones who liquidated him to the Romans. I am sure you were wondering what type of brothers they were. Perhaps that is why a popular maxim says, “A good friend is better than a bad brother.” What type of brother or sister are you too? Why are the children of your brothers and neighbors sent out of school while you are trying to build the 4th house? Why is your brother homeless while you and your husband live in an empty mansion? Do you remember your little cousin who wants help from you, but you want to have sex with her first before you help her? Your brother has been unemployed for 4 years, but you are buying the latest car in the market. What type of brother or sister are you?
Right here we have people sleeping by the road side and we wait to feed them once a month. There are people whose brother or sister is sick, but they refuse to help them. They are waiting for their brother to die and then they make a sumptuous funeral.
Nowadays, people are building huge mansions, but they have very small families. It is now like a rule in America that if your brother lives with you, he must pay you rents. Your sister is selling herself to make up her rents, but you are living in a mansion alone. Shouldn’t you be her keeper? Oh sister, how is it that your own very sister lacks clothes while you change so many and you still have some that you wear once a month? What type of sister are you?
I don’t understand why the veterans end up homeless; meanwhile, the country is donating money to other countries. Why not spend money to reeducate and integrate them back into the society if they cannot fit back into the society ? Shouldn't the government be their own brother? What type of brothers and sisters are we?
See the rich are refusing that the government should help the poor, but they will be the first to announce how they are raising money or making donations for the poor. They want the poor to keep being poor. Are they their brother’s keeper? 
 See, there is a family relative struggling to have a baby, but you are aborting yours. You have already conceived, so why not comb through the adoption waiting list and pick someone to change their lives? It will serve you better than killing the baby. Why not deliver and offer the child to the person in need and change someone’s life? The society we now live in is becoming more and more heartless. You see someone struggling g in danger, you stand there and film it and then put it on YouTube or Instagram to show that you recorded it. Sometimes you put it as funny and ask people to “like” it. What type of a brother or sister are you?
There is nothing we will take to the grave. We can miser and hoard as we want but on our departure day, we will take nothing with us.  May the orphans hear me; the Lord is hearing your story!  People, God loves a cheerful giver. If your heart prompts you to give, you should give. The Bible says, “The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.” (Prov 11:25). Although there is a friend that sticketh than a brother, but a brother is made for adversity. Therefore, do not forget that you supposed to be your brother or sister’s keeper. 

Until then, be a good brother or sister!

Beware earthly paradise seekers because there is a serpent in every paradise"(Hamilton Ayuk). "It is not how well you know a person; it is how well you treat them that they will live longer and happier with you." Idle people write, idler people read, and idlest people read and whine that idle people are taking their time (Hamilton Ayuk).
