We all have a choice in this world to do what we do, choose what we want, to go where we want. We need to choose wisely because our choices can affect others. Think before you leap.
On this day, God sent one of his messengers to test man and man was given a choice to pick one of three that stood before him to save before the world ends. The messenger's great voice came forth and said to the man:
"You can choose to save man, an elephant or giraffe. Which do you choose?"
The man looked before him and thought, the giraffe can reach up so very high, the elephant is so big and can carry me, man has been so greedy and destructive. After contemplating, he chose and replied:
"I choose them all."
The great voice says, "You can pick only one.".
The man replied, "I did".
The great voice asks, "Ok, please explain yourself. "
The man went into an explanation of the benefits of the giraffe and the elephant to not just their own ecosystems but to other ecosystems too, and not just in where they live but in how they connect to all ecosystems.
"Ok," the great voice said, "that is correct" and then asked about the decision to save man.
The man explained that humans have been greedy and destroyed the planet but not all are destructive and some see the need to unify the world to save it.
"Yes", the great voice agreed and again asked which the man wanted to choose and again the reply from the man was all of them.
The great voice said, "You don't understand, you can only save one of the three "
The man replied, "It is you that does not understand. All of God's creatures are important and must work together to make sure the world is healthy and strong."
Again, the great voice agreed and then demanded an explanation.
The man said something so profound that changed the fate of the world. The plants began to thrive, the air began to clear of smog and the water became clear and sparkled. The animals in the world became free and felt safe. Man became true guardians of the planet.
The messenger then went back to God and said man finally did good.
What did the man say that allowed him to pick all three before him?
"We are all one. We need each other to live, not just in harmony but for the longevity of the planet and all species for future generations. We can't do it alone. Saving one will destroy the planet. Saving all to work together as one will allow all to flourish and grow."
