The CDC tips to reduce risk of Covid-19 are nothing new in life, or are they?
The Chicago Tribune article titled, CDC issues tips for minimizing risks, reports their recommends for Americans to consider now the quarantine is being lifted.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate an ancient Bible verses recorded 3000 years ago to the core of their tips in relation to peoples marching for hope for society changes.
For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion. (Ecclesiastes 9:4)
The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and pay the penalty. (Proverb 22:3)
All share a common destiny–the righteous and the wicked, the good and the bad, the clean and the unclean, those who offer sacrifices and those who do not. As it is with the good, so with the sinful; as it is with those who take oaths, so with those who are afraid to take them. (Ecclesiastes 9:2)
What’s My Point?
In ancient times a dog was considered to be looked down upon and a lion was esteemed in their eyes.
Marchers believe they are being looked down by police and society and activists have hopes for change and are bravely like a lion marching in hope for change.
However, the pictures of marchers not wearing masks makes me wonder about prudence and wisdom of understanding the gift of life.
My point is everyone living has hope, however as the ancient wisdom saying warns, once you are dead so are your hopes.
If you are an atheist, you do not believe in eternity Kinda sad in my opinion..
If you have a religious faith and have no fear of judgement, you believe you will be rewarded with an eternity in a life after death.
My point is regardless of your religious beliefs, if you are not prudent to protect yourself with masks or disregard CDC warnings, you are incurring in various degrees of risks based on age and health to become infected with a potentially deadly disease.
In My Opinion
King Solomon observations and wisdom of life point are nothing new under the sun.
Life is a gift given to everyone by God, enjoy each day and strive for betterment on earth by working and hoping to achieve your dreams on earth.
However, if we are not prudent, we will increase the risk of having to pay the penalty whether it be our health, our hopes on earth.
