quotes

of the day

To a woman who complained about her destiny the Master said, “It is you who make your destiny.”

 “But surely I am not responsible for being born a woman?”

 “Being born a woman isn’t destiny. That is fate. Destiny is how you accept your womanhood and what you make of it.”

 This is Good!

 The story is told of a king in Africa who had a close friend with whom he grew up. The friend had a habit of looking at every situation that ever occurred in his life (positive or negative) and remarking, “This is good!”

 One day the king and his friend were out on a hunting expedition. The friend would load and prepare the guns for the king. The friend had apparently done something wrong in preparing one of the guns, for after taking the gun from his friend, the king fired it and his thumb was blown off.

 Examining the situation the friend remarked as usual, “This is good!”

 To which the king replied, “No, this is NOT good!” and proceeded to send his friend to jail.

 About a year later, the king was hunting in an area that he should have known to stay clear of. Cannibals captured him and took them to their village. They tied his hands, stacked some wood, set up a stake and bound him to the stake. As they came near to set fire to the wood, they noticed that the king was missing a thumb. Being superstitious, they never ate anyone that was less than whole. So untying the king, they sent him on his way.

 As he returned home, he was reminded of the event that had taken his thumb and felt remorse for his treatment of his friend.

 He went immediately to the jail to speak with his friend. “You were right,” he said, “it was good that my thumb was blown off.”

 And he proceeded to tell the friend all that had just happened. “And so I am very sorry for sending you to jail for so long.

 It was bad for me to do this.” “No,” his friend replied, “This is good!”

 “What do you mean, ‘This is good’? How could it be good that I sent my friend to jail for a year?”

 “If I had NOT been in jail, I would have been with you.”

 Situations may not always seem pleasant while we are in them, but the promise of God is clear. If we love Him and live our lives according to His precepts, even that which seems to be bleak and hopeless will be turned by God for His glory and our benefit. Hold on, God is faithful! May God bless you this week as you seek His will in every situation.

 

 

Heaven & Hell

(Author Unknown)

    A holy man was having a conversation with the Lord one day and said, “Lord, I would like to know what Heaven and Hell are like.”

 The Lord led the holy man to two doors. He opened one of the doors and the holy man looked in.

 In the middle of the room was a large round table. In the middle of the table was a large pot of stew which smelled delicious and made the holy man’s mouth water.

 But the people sitting around the table were thin and sickly. They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful, but because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths. The holy man shuddered at the sight of their misery and suffering. The Lord said, ‘You have seen Hell.’

 They then went to the next room and opened the door. It was exactly the same as the first one. There was the large round table with the large pot of stew which made the holy man’s mouth water. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking.

 The holy man said, “I don’t understand.”

 “It is simple” said the Lord, “In this place the people have learned to feed one another.”
