short story


“I have learned to be content with whatever i have. Philippians 4:11

one day, the father of a very wealthy family took his son on a trip to the country with the express purpose of showing him how poor people live. they spent a couple of days and nights on the farm of what would be considered a very poor family.

on their return from their trip, the father asked his son, “how was the trip?”

“it was great dad.”

“did you see how poor people live ?” the father asked.

” oh yeah,” said the son.

“so tell me, what did you learn from the trip?” asked the father.

the son answered: “i saw that we have one dog and they had four. we have a pool that reaches to the middle of our garden and they have a creek that has no end.

we have imported lanterns in our garden and they the stars at night. our patio reaches to the front yard and they have the whole horizon. we have a small piece of land to live on and they have fields that go beyond our sight.

we have servant who serve us , but they serve others. we buy our food, but they grow theirs. we have walls around our property to protect us, they have friends to protect them.”

the boy’s father was speechless.

then his son added, “thanks dad for showing me how poor we are.”

perspective. the apostle paul said he “learned ” how to be content. take time to look at the real blessings around you: the people you love, the time you have with them and the impact we are making on this earth. those are the things that truly make us rich! – source  CPT Brad Hanna, OKARNG Deputy State Chaplain.

“Men make history, and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still, progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better”.

” now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed time, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the harvest and the playtime.”  W.E.B. Du Bois – American Scholar and Civil Rights Leader (1868 – 1963)
