What a great message
JRD Tata had a friend who used to say that he misplaces and loses his pen very often.
He will use only very cheap pens so that he need not worry about losing them. He was worried about carelessness habit.
JRD suggested to him to buy the costliest pen he could afford and see what happens. He did that and purchased a 22 carat gold Cross pen. After nearly six months JRD met him and asked him if he continues to misplace his pen.
His friend said that he is very careful about his costly pen and he is surprised how he has changed!
JRD explained to him that the value of the pen made the difference and there was nothing wrong with him as a person!
This is what happens in our life.
We are careful with things which we value most.
* If we value our health, we will be careful about what and how we eat;
* if we value our friends, we will treat them with respect;
* if we value money, we will be careful while spending;
* if we value our time, we will not waste it.
*if we value relationship we will not break it.
Care is a basic trait all of us have, we know when to be careful!
Carelessness only shows what we don’t value……
Have a wonderful n careful life…
Greetings from Kashmir!!
As the bible tells us about the final words of many great men of God. In Joshua 24, we see Joshua’s final speech with the Israelites. After a brief recapitulation of what the Lord has done to the Israelites, Joshua challenged the people to serve the Lord. At that time, Israelites were living in the promised land, which God won for them. They did not need to go for any wars. They could enjoy the harvest of the land they just received. The promised land was so fertile. As the Lord told, it was “a land flowing with milk and honey.” Thereafter, Israelites would get everything they need. Joshua might have feared that the people may go away from the Lord when they live in prosperity. While challenging the Israelites to serve the Lord, Joshua reaffirmed his commitment to serve the Lord along with his own family. When people responded by saying “we too will serve the Lord, because he is our God” (v.18), Joshua did not let them go immediately. Rather, he reminded them about who God was. Thus, Joshua led the Israelites to a renewal of their commitment to serve the Lord. Because Israelites’ possession of the promised land was an act of God. For Joshua, Israelites were to decide on whom they would serve. We too need the same commitment to serve the Lord.
Generally, people do not seek God desperately all the time, as they seek him in their times of need. I should remember God even when I have everything that I need. I must serve the Lord faithfully, at all times. My God is the greatest blessing than all that I may have on this earth. So, I will serve the Lord.
Sorry for delay in bills and reports as we’re so busy with the meetings.
The great Blessings were tool kits and seminars.
Now onwards need to focus on pending projects, as man of God Martin Luther King said in a beautiful song that we shall overcome one day.
We are seeing much fruits in our area.
