Tell me, who's fooling who?

Today is Fools' Day. And as such we shall fool each other by combining the last two Day's topics into one—and no one will be the wiser.

Yesterday, akina Maina and crew were talking about njyes training for men, a topic that was discussed until late in the night on 'fakebook'.

Today, they are talking about how many Kenyan women complain about how Kenyan men are 'useless'.

My Human Opinion

The original origin of Fools' Day is uncertain and is still debated amongst those who care to. But basically, it's believed to have began in the 16th Century in France after the Gregorian calendar was introduced and New Year's day was moved from April 1st to January 1st. And since information used to travel slowly in those twittless days, some people didn't get the 411 until many years later.

What is my point? Communication delayed, like justice, is communication denied. Communication delayed, like assumptions, can create fools out of you and me.

Many have said it. The root problem between men and women is usually communication, or lack of it. Men and women see, hear, taste, feel and smell things differently—obviously.

Another argument, is who started it all. The woman will say I'm this way or that way because he is that way or this way. Then the man will say I'm this way or that way because she is that way or this way. And so on.

Enough already. It's time for MEN to suck it up and style up. Why men? Because you are men. And that is what you are supposed to do.

Consider this, my additions in red
Romans 5: 6-8 
6 You see, at just the right time, when we (the church) were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly (that's you and me). 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we (the church) were still sinners, Christ died for us.
If Christ represents the husband and the church represents the wife/bride, then guess who should bulge first and give up their rights.

So men, be a better man whether or not your woman will respond in kind.
1 John 4:16-19
16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
   God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them. 17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus. 18 There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
 19 We (the church) love because he first loved us.

Now, in case you were not aware, the above has been about today's topic.

For yesterday's topic about njyes training, I will link you to a previous related post here.

Communication delayed is communication denied? Hmmm... I would hesitate to endorse that view.

Sometimes we assume that just because communication is instant then it is better. I feel that sometimes God will perfect the timing of a message. A message received too early can be just as disastrous as one received too late or not at all. What do you think?

Thanks 5goodexcuses for your observation. Actually you are right. A message received too early can have bad effects, just like counting your chicks before they hatch.
