Those Who Can Adapt Will Survive



Remember those animals who have become extinct? They failed to survive because they were unable to adapt to changing circumstances and situations in their lives. The dodo bird, the dinosaurs, the saber toothed tiger, the mammoth and other exotic animals are now just memories of the past. What is true with animals is also the same case with human beings. Those who adapted and adjusted to the changing fortunes in their lives were those who survived and live to tell all of their travails which they have overcome. Those who failed to adjust were reduced to a life of just existing and are better dead than alive. Some even went to the extent of killing other people in a frenzy of massacres before ending their own lives. Man must learn the fundamental facts of life and learn to adapt so that he will not be overwhelmed by fortuitous events in his life. Man must realize that life is ebb and flow, and sink or swim. But most of all, man must learn to trust and rely on God who will sustain him through thick or thin. God alone ordains what will befall the fates of men. God alone determines who shall live and who shall die. It is best to adopt an attitude of a trusting child, trusting that his heavenly Father shall provide for all his needs no matter what the situation and circumstances maybe. Adapt to situations and trust God. That is the formula for survival in this ever changing world.

God will not put us in a situation where we would not be able to adjust..

Hi Tin-tin,
Yes I agree with you but there are people who are not sensitive to God's
leading and even if they do they still do their own will. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

Hi Tey,
It's a chameleon. A chameleon changes color to adapt to the color of its surrounding. This way they can avoid their enemies. It's called hunyango in the vernacular. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
