Malcolm Bane was right…
A meme I came across a few years ago from a pastor named Malcolm Bane made me think about society and the world we live in and, in particular, the apologies that we create in order to ignore helping less fortunate people.
The phrase was the following: “if you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you´ll end up not doing anything for anybody”.
Almost all of us born in developed countries are aware of the unjust distribution of wealth and resources on this planet; however, we are convinced that it is useless to try to change this situation because: “if we donate, surely the NGO keeps all the money”, “the King / Dictator / spiritual leader will spend it on another Mercedes …”, “they are lazy, it’s their own fault “… Up until 4 years ago when I came across Bane’s quote, these excuses served as a justification for my inaction, simply ignoring the situation and filling my life with irrelevant issues … Will Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi score more goals? Will Fernando Alonso´s Ferrari / McLaren complete 3 laps of Spa?
