Two brothers fighting for attention and praise,
Trying to outdo each other in ways,
They hope will secure them the title of favourite,
Both missing the point, however you label it.
Jealousy took a hold, one murdered the other,
Rage cheated him out of his hopes and his brother,
Had they focused on love, not fighting and worse,
Abel would’ve lived, and Cain wouldn’t be cursed.

A bit of competition never hurt anyone, right? …wrong. Often what starts out as healthy competition, turns into jealousy, anger, hate and a number of other negative emotions. Sibling rivalries are a clear example of how things can turn sour, and then go from sour to rotten in no time at all!
This piece takes a fresh look at one such sibling rivalry, that is pretty well known, which ends in the ultimate unwanted outcome. It’s a great reminder of what’s truly important, plus it opens our eyes to how easily we can completely sabotage our own efforts, simply by being negative towards others.
Nothing good ever came from bad intentions. So spare a thought for how you view others and also how you treat them, as it may make the difference between you facing a similar fate, or not. Show yourself more love, by loving one another, and love one another better, by starting with yourself and your kin.
Love and Respect always,
