- THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER
One summer’s day, a merry Grasshopper was dancing, singing and playing his violin with all his heart. He saw an Ant passing by, bearing along with great toil a wheatear to store for the winter.
“Come and sing with me instead of working so hard”, said the Grasshopper “Let’s have fun
“I must store food for the winter”, said the Ant, “and I advise you to do the same.”
“Don’t worry about winter, it’s still very far away”, said the Grasshopper, laughing at him.
But the Ant wouldn’t listen and continued his toil.
When the winter came, the starving Grasshopper went to the Ant’s hou
- se and humbly
begged for something to eat.
“If you had listened to my advice in the summer you would not now be in need,” said the
Ant. “I’m afraid you will have to go supper to bed,” and he closed the door.
It is best to prepare for the days of necessity
- EAGLES IN A STORM
Did you know that an eagle knows when a storm is approaching long before it breaks? The
eagle will fly to some high spot and wait for the winds to come. When the storm hits, it sets
its wings so that the wind will pick it up and lift it above the storm. While the storm rages
below, the eagle is soaring above it.The eagle does not escape the storm. It simply uses the
storm to lift it higher. It rises on the winds that bring the storm.When the storms of life
come upon us – and all of us will experience them – we can rise above them by setting our
minds and our belief toward God. The storms do not have to overcome us. We can allow
God’s power to lift us above them.God enables us to ride the winds of the storm that bring
sickness, tragedy, failure and disappointment in our lives. We can soar above the storm.
“A son and his father were walking on the mountains.
Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams: “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!!!”
To his surprise, he hears the voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain:
Curious, he yells: “Who are you?”
He receives the answer: “Who are you?”
And then he screams to the mountain: “I admire you!”
The voice answers: “I admire you!”
Angered at the response, he screams: “Coward!”
He receives the answer: “Coward!”
He looks to his father and asks: “What’s going on?”
The father smiles and says: “My son, pay attention.”
Again the man screams: “You are a champion!”
The voice answers: “You are a champion!”
The boy is surprised, but does not understand.
Then the father explains: “People call this ECHO, but really this is LIFE.
It gives you back everything you say or do.
Our life is simply a reflection of our actions.
If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart.
If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence.
This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life;
Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”
YOUR LIFE IS NOT A COINCIDENCE. IT’S A REFLECTION OF YOU!”
- THE MAN, THE BOY AND THE DONKEY
A Man and his son were once going with their Donkey to market. As they were walking
along by its side a countryman passed them and said: “You fools, what is a Donkey for but to
So the Man put the Boy on the Donkey and they went on their way. But soon they passed a
group of men, one of whom said: “See that lazy youngster, he lets his father walk while he
So the Man ordered his Boy to get off, and got on himself. But they hadn’t gone far when
they passed two women, one of whom said to the other: “Shame on that lazy lout to let his
poor little son trudge along.”Well, the Man didn’t know what to do, but at last he took his Boy up before him on the
Donkey. By this time they had come to the town, and the passers-by began to jeer and point
at them. The Man stopped and asked what they were scoffing at. The men said:
“Aren’t you ashamed of yourself for overloading that poor donkey of yours and your hulking
The Man and Boy got off and tried to think what to do. They thought and they thought, till
at last they cut down a pole, tied the donkey’s feet to it, and raised the pole and the donkey
to their shoulders. They went along amid the laughter of all who met them till they came to
Market Bridge, when the Donkey, getting one of his feet loose, kicked out and caused the
Boy to drop his end of the pole. In the struggle the Donkey fell over the bridge, and his forefeet being tied together he was drowned.
“That will teach you,” said an old man who had followed them:
Please all, and you will please none
- THE WOODEN BOWL
A frail old man went to live with his son, daughter-in-law, and a four-year old grandson. The
old man’s hands trembled, his eyesight was blurred, and his step faltered. The family ate
together nightly at the dinner table. But the elderly grandfather’s shaky hands and failing
sight made eating rather difficult. Peas rolled off his spoon onto the floor. When he grasped
the glass often milk spilled on the tablecloth. The son and daughter-in-law became irritated
with the mess. “We must do something about grandfather,” said the son. I’ve had enough of
his spilled milk, noisy eating, and food on the floor. So the husband and wife set a small
table in the corner. There, grandfather ate alone while the rest of the family enjoyed dinner
at the dinner table. Since grandfather had broken a dish or two, his food was served in a
wooden bowl. Sometimes when the family glanced in grandfather’s direction, he had a tear
in his eye as he ate alone. Still, the only words the couple had for him were sharp
admonitions when he dropped a fork or spilled food. The four-year-old watched it all in
One evening before supper, the father noticed his son playing with wood scraps on the
floor. He asked the child sweetly, “What are you making?” Just as sweetly, the boy
responded, “Oh, I am making a little bowl for you and mama to eat your food from when I
grow up.” The four-year-old smiled and went back to work. The words so struck the parents
that they were speechless. Then tears started to stream down their cheeks. Though no word
was spoken, both knew what must be done. That evening the husband took grandfather’s
hand and gently led him back to the family table.
For the remainder of his days he ate every meal with the family. And for some reason,
neither husband nor wife seemed to care any longer when a fork was dropped, milk spilled,
or the tablecloth soiled. Children are remarkably perceptive. Their eyes ever observe, their
ears ever listen, and their minds ever process the messages they absorb. If they see us
patiently provide a happy home atmosphere for family members, they will imitate that
attitude for the rest of their lives. The wise parent realizes that every day that building
blocks are being laid for the child’s future.
Let us all be wise builders and role models. Take care of yourself, … and those you love, …
today, and everyday!
