The gun fired and the race began. Not everyone at first was running, but everyone wanted to participate and win.
They ran in threes, a boy tripped and fell, did a few somersaults and started crying.
The others heard him crying.
They slowed down and looked behind them. They stopped and came back…
The whole crowd stood up and applauded. The applause lasted a very long time…
Because deep down inside us, we all know that one of the most important things in life is much more than winning for ourselves
One of the most important things in this life is to help others to find the Truth and the real values in life. Even if that means slowing down and changing our own race.
If we take the time to share with others those things that are True, uplifting and encouraging and even if at times we need to warn them of danger or correct them in Love we will have contributed to lighting a Candle of Hope in their heart that will one day burn brightly…
And a Candle loses nothing if it is used to
light another one.”
1 Corinthians 1: 26-31 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption. That, according as it is written, He that gloried, let him glory in the Lord.
