Shall we exert self control or compel God to put lock and key?[This thread is the first prize joint winner of the topic-based TOW of November 2017]
We keep our homes,offices and other valuables under control for safety by closing and opening them under lock and key. There are different types of them and we have come to the stage of digital lock and key. It is really interesting that we enclose and hold small and simple things as chocolates to valuables like currency ,gold and diamonds that way. Entry and exit to them are well controlled.
Now here is the wonder of God's creativity. Our body is precious for us. It has its entry points and exit points. Especially the mouth is used for entry and exit too-just like our front doors. Has God thought to provide lock and key for these entry and exit doors in our body? No. All his experience is that every creation of his, has its own self-control. They do not exceed the expected levels. It was with this experience and confidence that God created humans. And He thought that humans will have better control than all other creatures.
Unfortunately what we see now? We exceed in everything. No control for input or outgo. This causes issues in health and safety to the invaluable body and mind. So now it seems that humans may need not just one, but many locks and keys for a healthy physical living and healthy social and community living.
Otherwise God will be compelled to install a lock and key from his next version of human creation.
