Preparing for a dinner...
THE PARABLE OF THE PENCIL
The Pencil Maker took the pencil aside, just before putting her into the box. “There are 5 things you need to know,” he told the pencil, “before I send you out into the world, always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best
pencil you can be.”
One: You will be able to do many great things, but only if you allow yourself to be held in
Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time, but you’ll need it to become a
Three: You will be able to correct any
mistakes you might make.
Four: The most important part of you will
always be what’s inside”
Five: On every surface you are used on, you must leave your mark. No matter what the condition,
you must continue to write.
The pencil understood and promised to remember, and went into the box with purpose in its heart.
Now, replacing the place of the pencil with you, always remember them and never forget, and you will become the best person you can be.
One: You will be able to do many good things but only if you allow yourself to be held in God’s hand, and allow other human beings to access you
for the many gifts you possess.
Two: You will experience a painful sharpening from time to time by going through various problems and trials, but you will need them to
become a stronger person.
Three: You can always correct your mistakes so you may learn and grow through them.
Four: The most important part of you will always be what is inside your heart.
Five: On every surface you walk you must leave your mark. No matter what the situation might be, you must continue to serve God in everything.
Everyone is like a pencil...
Created by the Maker for a unique and special purpose. By understanding and remembering, let us proceed with our life on this earth, having a meaningful purpose in our heart and a relationship with God daily.
You are made to do great things!
Did you like it? Is it something you would enjoy? Just wondering...
Back to work. Trying to get a few things done in the garden, enjoying the mild weather and loving the bird songs and growing things.
Thank you for stopping by my friends and enjoy this beautiful day!
