I find such non-sense to be disapproving. Not in one way do I see it as healthy competition to hold a grudge over others just because it has been that way since you first walked. That clan after clan avenging or holding on to an old age misunderstanding is irrational. Can you not think on your own? Will you be continuing to be on the wrong just because your forefathers did? Or even be in the darkness of the truth just to hold your head up and not give in?
It is high time that you put the wrong to right. Whoever may be at fault ages ago, let it go and start living in harmony both inside and out. How easy it would be to live without ANY bitterness? You will be free to live, and you will be happier than your ancestors have ever been.
Or even of the present family competition within your circle of relatives…it is insanity wanting to be atop over the others. Why not be happy for the achievement of the others, or of their success? Remember, jealousy is of the darkness. And instead of criticizing your fellow, look into your own lives and live it with a thankful heart that you are where you are and not below it.
I see people victims of such evilness, either they themselves are tempted to look down on people or they themselves experience the harshness of such ungodly step downs. The reason mostly: pride and personal gains.
