In thinking about Haiti this morning, I was kind of thinking something along these lines. I thought that how could Haiti and other countries be so destitute and their leaders be so evil, with no power to use their God given abilities do do something, anything to help themselves. They seem to live in a different universe, I really thought they must be cursed.

You know how they tie baby elephants to a stake at the circus so they won’t escape.

Why is it that when the elephant grows big enough they are still tied to a stake, even though they are strong enough to easily break away from the stake? It’s because they are conditioned to believe that there is nothing they can do to break free.

I believe that’s exactly what you have here with the Haitian people. They are conditioned to accept where they are, and don’t believe there is anything they can do to change that.
