A Long Line of Choices

We in the human race descend from some great geniuses of the world and some reliably awkward wackos. We share the same deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA/ genes) as great and insane men and women of our past. It is impossible to differentiate which gene concoction we have built into our cellular stores. We could have the most problematic, sickly type or the most healthy, solution oriented type. We could have social or antisocial genes. We could have skinny or fat genes. We could have ugly or beautiful genes or anything in between. One thing remains. We have absolutely no control over what we have to start with. And along with that, each and every person has the amazing and universal choice to make as to how they will use what they have been given. We can be very lazy and noncommittal and blame bad genes on this attitude and refuse to do anyone but ourselves any good whatsoever. Or. And this is important. We can choose to be the very best and most useful us we can possibly be. Because there is always hope to help. We are made exactly the way we are for some reason. What a treasure to be able to try different things and find out what we are good at and love doing and help other people with it! How absolutely worthless when people choose to do nothing and live in despair without trying anything. What a waste of a life. I believe we are rewarded when we do good and be the best we can. I believe we are rewarded both now and in heaven. The way this world is going, heaven is closer than we think and we never know when something will happen and we find ourselves there. Better to be ready and have been productive with the gifts given us. Right?
