Man has the natural tendency to perceive and analyze others based on the angle of his own disposition, strength and calling.
And, this though selfish goes to also manifest the efficacy of these three factors of human endowment and existence. It also makes us emphatically aware of our disposition, strength and Calling, and that way we tend to have a sense of God’s bestowment on us as humans, and as individuals, and most importantly the consciousness of the supremacy of God as our creator.
However, it is pertinent that every human or individual realizes that ones own disposition, strength and Calling don’t in most cases serve as a standard, or basis for determining or assessing and qualifying other humans. And, erroneously that has been the case.
People, here, tend to unduly see others through the eyes of their own elements of existence, forgetting that every human is unique before God our creator. Such that a man’s index of calling is never the same with that of another man, or his strength another’s strength; as the saying goes, one man’s meat is another man’s poison.
Truly, here lies the source of most of the human relational and productive conflict with fellow humans.
Of course this often arises as a result an unconscious attempt by individuals to want to like think that we are an homogeneous creature. While the truth remains that every man is a unique or uncommon creature when it comes disposition, strength and Calling.
Thus, it is lack of this understanding as it bothers on these creational factors that makes us to unduly compare or compete with one another, or think that what makes others fail would as well fail us, or that we have to do what others do in terms of scope, time, value, etc. to attain success and ultimately fulfil our destiny.
Well, to overcome this life anomaly it really requires our going to God to discover our unique disposition, strength and calling from the outset, and then from time to time, on periodical basis reaffirm the same.
Understandably, there’s need for all to comprehend the complementary nature of human existence, and that way bring to bear our uniqueness in life and in productivity.
Finally, it is on the basis of our ability to grasp our individual differences in disposition, strength and Calling that we can learn to thrive and embrace fellow humans without prejudice and Subjectivity.
