While on bed rest due to flu, I had this random revelation. Funny, but I'm tracing this back to a conversation I heard over The Morning Rush on our way to work yesterday.

Chico and Delamar, our favorite DJs, are discussing the irony of how some parents divide their "manna" to their children. Usually, the children who does well doesn't get anything simply because.. he is well. While the children, who actually wasted their time, gets all the manna because.. he's not doing well. And he needs help. 

And then I came across this post by Cito Beltran: Rewarded for Being Poor which I somehow relate to The Morning Rush conversation because of this line:
"many people simply resign themselves to act poor, think poor and talk poor because they get something free for it."
Now I'm making sense of the Parable of the Talents. 
 For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. - Matt 25:29
It is true that sometimes, being practical is not always right. Maybe if we stop rewarding the "poor people" (those who actually choose to be poor), they would help themselves?

Random Thought.
