“And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.”
Format: Bible Verse
Audience: Teenagers and young adults
Purpose: To educate teenagers and young adults about the Bible, and one of the most hated things in God’s sight. (Pride)
Effectiveness: In this Bible verse it clearly shows that the purpose has been met effectively through distinction. It mainly shows the contrast between those who are humbled as against those who choose to exalt themselves. In the bible verse it speaks specifically that man should humble himself before God. “Nothing is more hateful in God’s sight than pride.” The meaning of Matthew 23:12 is one that still holds a great deal of relevance, since Jesus was speaking out in this particular bible verse about the sins of religious leaders and these days, so-called holy men often find themselves at the centers of terrible scandals involving swindled money and sexual abuse. In today's society this verse speaks to those who thinks they are at a higher level than other because of some reason or another but fail to be humble before God.
“Wanti wanti cyah get eh, getti getti nuh want eh”
English Translation:Those who really want something cannot get it, those who are always getting things do not want it.
Definition- This suggest that some of us place very little value on things that are more important to others who are unable to get these things. Count your blessings and do not take what you have for granted.
Format: Jamaican Proverb
Audience: General Public
Purpose: To inform
Effectiveness: This proverb has met its purpose through distinction. it speaks of persons who have alot as against the persons who have little or nothing at all. Persons who have alot are usually more unhappy than those who have very little, because their goal is to receive more on what they already have than finding the time to be grateful for what they do have.
