There Is No Logic! It’s The Nature Of Scorpions To Bite!


A scorpion, being a very poor swimmer, asked a turtle to carry him on his back to cross a river. “Are you mad?” exclaimed the turtle. “You will sting me while I’m swimming and I will drown”.

“My dear turtle”, laughed the scorpion, “If I were to sting you, you would drown with me as well. Now where is the logic in that?”

“You’re right!” calmly responded the turtle. “Hop on!” The scorpion climbed on top of the turtle, and halfway across the river the scorpion gave the turtle a deadly sting. As they both sank to the bottom, the turtle asked the scorpion one more time:

“Do you mind if I ask you something? You said there would be no logic in your stinging me. Why did you do it?”

“It has nothing to do with logic,” the drowning scorpion sadly replied. “It’s just my character”.

Some human beings are like that scorpion. No matter how nice or good you are to them, it is just their nature and character to sting. They betray, rob, cheat, hurt, kill or blackmail for no logic. Even if their actions hurt both of you, they will still do it because their actions are reflex in nature. They do not rely on logic, but it’s just embedded within their character.

Be very careful of such people in life, be it at work, church, neighbourhood, marriage and other noble relationship platforms. Harbour them close to you at your own peril. They will bite you, and even themselves, to death!

May God protect you from the scorpions surrounding you in life.
