THE ELECTORATE CALLED ESAU

Right from childhood , i have found the story of Esau difficult to comprehend . Here is a hard working hairy twin of a “wayoric” brother .  Despite the fact that they are twins Culture only recognized the first child as heir . Esau knew this , he wasn’t drugged or drunk. He had his senses intact . I will like to assume that he had breakfast before going to “work “.. he returned home hungry …asked his twin for food …who demanded for his birthright …to which he replied “of what use will it be if i die ?”..so he sold his birthright for a plate of pottage . Kinda what the bank will do abi ? you borrow some money , hand over collateral which is ALWAYS way more than your request and once you cannot pay within the stipulated time frame , you might loose your collateral.

Anyway so he eats his meal and walks away to mind his business. Abeg who dies from a day’s hunger ? Esau’s hunger was obviously overrated… the bible refers to him as a “fornicator ” …yes for ” a moments pleasure “…buy now pay later …

Elections begin February 2015 …all and any party will entice the electorate with material things ..food, clothing , money , electronics, houses, jobs …what is interesting about these offers is that like Esau’s porridge , its of no ETERNAL CONSEQUENCE . in other words they are PERISHABLES. And because of what you will eat today and shit tomorrow dont vote against your conscience … its not about you , your vote is also for the seed in your loins … Esau sort for amends with tears the bible says , he didn’t find ..” e ma gbe ounje ale yin je fun ologbo “…do not give ur dinner to the cat ….vote wisely !
