SPOKEN WORDS CAN'T BE RETRIEVED
A farmer insulted his neighbor. Realizing his mistake, he went to the preacher to ask for forgiveness. The
preacher told him to take a bag of feathers and drop them in the center of town. The farmer did as he was
6. told. Then the preacher asked him to go and collect the feathers and put them back in the bag. The farmer
tried but couldn't as the feathers had all blown away. When he returned with the empty bag, the preacher
said, "The same thing is true about your words. You dropped them rather easily but you cannot retrieve
them, so be very careful in choosing your words."
LUCK FAVORS THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES
A flood was threatening a small town and everyone was leaving for safety except one man who said, "God
will save me. I have faith." As the water level rose a jeep came to rescue him, the man refused, saying "God
will save me. I have faith." As the water level rose further, he went up to the second storey, and a boat came
to help him. Again he refused to go, Belying, "God will save me. I have faith." The water kept rising and the
man climbed on to the roof. A helicopter came to rescue him, but he said, "God will save me. I have faith."
Well, finally he drowned. When he reached his Maker he angrily questioned, "I had complete faith in you.
Why did you ignore my prayers and let me drown?" The Lord replied, "Who do you think sent you the jeep,
the boat, and the helicopter?"
The only way to overcome the fatalistic attitude is to accept responsibility and believe in the law of cause
and effect rather than luck.
It takes action, preparation and planning rather than waiting, wondering or wishing, to accomplish anything
